Fiber-Classic® Mahogany Collection™ 3-Panel Style Door
To meet consumer demand for fiberglass doors in hardwood grains with ¾-glass options, Therma-Tru Corp. introduced the Fiber-Classic® Mahogany Collection™ 3-Panel Style Door in early 2012. The door can be ordered as a solid, opaque unit or configured for either ¾-rectangle or ¾-oval lites in 17 different decorative glass options, plus four privacy options, clear Low-E and clear glass.
"The ENERGY STAR® qualified doors are an affordable fiberglass door option featuring rich, premium hardwood graining," says Derek Fielding, senior product manager of doors at Therma-Tru Corp. "Like all Therma-Tru doors, the Mahogany 3-Panel Doors are constructed for strength, security and performance and resist rotting, warping and fading under harsh climate conditions. Solid door styles can also be ordered in fire- and impact-rated versions."
Selection of the new Fiber-Classic Mahogany Collection style for the main entryway of the home provides builders and homeowners with the option of creating a cohesive look throughout the remainder of the house by selecting other Fiber-Classic® Oak Collection™ or Smooth-Star® options for secondary entry areas. This expanded selection provides homeowners with more options for selecting similar three-panel door styles throughout the home that can have different graining options.
"We've matched up the best of two worlds with this product," says Fielding. "Hardwood grains, like mahogany, continue to hold popularity with homeowners. At the same time, 3-panel doors are some of the top sellers at Therma-Tru, showcasing the homeowners' preference for this simplistic and elegant style. This door definitely embodies the elegance of a rich, premium hardwood grain in a low-maintenance fiberglass door that meets the needs of value-driven consumers."
