Fiber-Classic® and Smooth-Star® Add New Oval and Rectangular Glass Lites, Three-Panel Embossments

MAUMEE, Ohio (January 13, 2005) – Therma-Tru pioneered the first fiberglass door in the industry in 1983 and named it the Fiber-Classic door. Now, 21 years later, Therma-Tru is the entry door brand leader and continues to develop and manufacture top-selling entry systems that are energy-efficient, weather-resistant, safe and durable, and feature stylish and innovative glass designs.

Therma-Tru added new styles to its popular Fiber-Classic and Smooth-Star Collections with new oval and rectangular glass and frames available early 2005. These new door styles are more detailed, create eye-catching entryways and bring additional light into the home. Both styles are available in scroll or rectangular embossed panels, each featuring an intricately detailed frame and deeply detailed panels with beautiful shadows. There also is an option to match glass sidelites and transoms to create a custom, grand entryway of enduring beauty.

"As design trends evolve, we continually look for new styles for the entry that reflect these changing preferences," said John Kufner, Product Line General Manager, Entry Door Systems, for Therma-Tru Doors. "A beautiful entryway can be a home's most expressive feature."

Two new oval and one rectangular glass lites have been added to the Fiber-Classic Collection in four different glass styles: Keystone™, Starlite®, Crystalline™ and Clear. The new embossment of the Fiber-Classic doors offers beautiful and distinctive detailing that helps builders, remodelers and homeowners create an entryway that makes a lasting impression.

Like all Fiber-Classic entry doors, the new doors feature realistic Oak graining that can be stained with Therma-Tru's finishing system and won't warp, crack or rot like natural wood. Fiber-Classic door systems come with a full system lifetime limited warranty and a five-year satisfaction warranty on the finish.

Therma-Tru is also expanding its line of Smooth-Star doors with the introduction of a new oval design, showcasing a new three-panel embossment that features exclusive Smooth-Star decorative glass, Crystalline™, Sedona, Concorde™ and Crystal Diamonds™. Smooth-Star doors offer ready-to-paint surfaces that resist dents and rust and provide greater curb appeal than steel doors. The smooth surface, sharp lines and crisp detailing help assure a beautiful entryway. The door systems come with a full system 20-year limited warranty.

"The new glass shapes fit any home style, traditional or contemporary," said Kufner. "By choosing a Therma-Tru door, you know that you are getting the best quality, performance and warranties in the industry. We offer the widest array of styles and options for entryways to suit the needs and likes of all builders and remodelers."

All the components of a Therma-Tru door are designed, engineered and manufactured to work together trouble-free, while providing the utmost in weather-resistance and security. The optional Multi-Point Locking System secures the door in three places, adding security and strength to any Therma-Tru entry door system. In addition, the CFC-free solid polyurethane foam core provides high insulation value for added energy efficiency.
