You can find complete details regarding our hollow metal doors, commercial wood doors, and hollow metal frames including detailed specifications, door cores, commercial door fire ratings, and hurricane wind load testing by going to the Doors or Frames pages. You'll also find information on galvanizing, hollow metal door classifications (level and model), frame anchors, rough opening sizes, welded versus knockdown hollow metal frames, frame profiles, and jamb depths there along with some helpful tips and door handing.

The Hardware page has several different categories. Each section starts off with a "general information" page which goes into detail regarding that specific hardware item. More specific information on that product can then be viewed by clicking the different choices. You can also see a graphic of all the different hardware finishes available on that page.

Our newest addition is Commercial Door Talk!. It is a social media area dedicated to commercial doors, frames, and hardware. You can ask a question, provide an answer, or just take a look around. This part of our site has many features and is much more than just a discussion board.

We are located on the east coast of Florida which makes us ideal for export work as well. We supply to the Southeastern United States, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. You can see some export jobs completed in the past by clicking on "About Us" above. We will deliver your material in our trucks to the Port of Palm Beach (or any other port you prefer), give it to the freight forwarder of your choice, and provide the Bill of Lading. The Port of Palm Beach is one of the busiest container ports in Florida.

You will find a Power Point presentation, hinge location sheets showing the main hollow metal manufacturers hardware locations on the doors and frames, and some other handy forms on the Downloads page. This web site has been here since 1995...2015 is our 20th year online!...and provides you with a lot of information. We cover every subject in detail. We hope you will find it useful and informative.
