Commercial-Grade Decorative Doors, Frames and Hardware

Doors and door hardware may be the most intimate points of contact we have with a building. We’re affected by the way a door looks, and by the way the lever or pull on that door feels. And while the first job of doors and hardware may be to keep what’s behind them safe and secure, they should also insulate us from noise; create a barrier against the heat and the cold; be sustainable and energy efficient; and, be aesthetically harmonious with the dominant character of a space.
