Special-Lite Releases New Wood Grain All Fiberglass Door

Introducing the AF-219-1 All Fiberglass Composite Contemporary Wood Grain Door

DECATUR, MI, May 26, 2017– 

Special-Lite, Inc. introduced a new door model to their All Fiberglass Composite Door series, adding the warm look of a wood door.

Special-Lite will manufacture the new AF-219-1 Contemporary Wood Grain Composite Door in their Marshall, Arkansas facility. It features the same construction method as the All Fiberglass Composite door series. Constructed by factory bonding FRP face sheets to pultruded fiberglass stiles and rails, this method produces doors that are lightweight, strong, impervious to moisture, and resistant to rust, rot, and corrosion. The addition of the AF-219-1 adds a wood grain texture to Special-Lite’s existing FRP face sheet texture options:

This contemporary wood grain FRP face sheet first gained popularity when Special-Lite released the SL-19-1 Contemporary Wood Grain FRP/Aluminum Hybrid door. The FRP face sheet has a realistic wood look featuring authentic cherry species replication in four standard stain colors:

  • American Cherry
  • Dark Cherry
  • Dark Walnut
  • Light Maple
  • Custom paint colors also available
