HOME BUILDERS OPEN DOOR TO ELEGANT MAHOGANY BEAUTY
Classic-Craft® Mahogany Collection Creates a Truly Better Entrance,
New Eight-Panel Door Style Adds Elegant Appeal
MAUMEE, Ohio (January 13, 2005) – Therma-Tru Doors reinvented the mahogany door category with the introduction of the Classic-Craft® Mahogany Collection fiberglass door system, proving that beauty is more than skin deep with a high-style, high-performance entry door system that delivers the rich look of the real endangered wood with the performance of fiberglass.
Therma-Tru is introducing a 6'8" x 3'0" Classic-Craft Mahogany eight-panel style door. This door offers the beauty, look and feel of an authentic wood door with the performance benefits of fiberglass. The molded open design allows for the option of a center arch decorative glass or solid eight-panel door. The center arch 10" x 42" glass is available in Arcadia, Ashurst, Longford and clear styles, and optional matching center arch sidelites would create a grand entrance.
A new 6'8" Mahogany full-lite flush-glazed sidelite is also being introduced. The sidelite compliments the Mahogany six-panel door style and is available in decorative glass styles.
Therma-Tru's Mahogany Collection helps builders, remodelers and homeowners create a grand entranceway reminiscent of America's great historic homes. The Mahogany door system offers the elegant look and fine, authentic grain of Honduran Mahogany with intricate detailing and a surface that can be beautifully finished to complement any home's exterior.
Developed by the R&D engineers at Therma-Tru's Advanced Technology Center using the company's unique and proprietary Classic-Craft technology, the Mahogany door system is more than just a beautiful door – it delivers thermal performance and lasting durability that won't warp, crack, rot or split like real wood.
"Builders, remodelers, architects and homeowners have really responded to the Mahogany Collection," said John Kufner, Product Line General Manager, Entry Door Systems, for Therma-Tru Doors. "Initial demand for this door has been tremendous and it is quickly becoming one of the most popular products in our portfolio. Now, we are expanding our product line with new styles to meet our customers'needs."
The new Mahogany door system is offered with Therma-Tru's exclusive FrameSaver moisture- and insect-proof frame and multi-point locking system. The entire Classic-Craft system is covered by a lifetime limited warranty, one of the best in the business.
"A beautiful entryway can be one of a home's best features," said Kufner. "Therma-Tru and NFO Worldwide conducted research which found that an enhanced entryway can add as much as $24,000 to a home's perceived value, which is approximately five times the cost of the entry system. This new door system can give a home a custom, beautiful look with an excellent return on investment."
