ASSA ABLOY Group announced the launch of its Smooth Grain Stainable Steel Door by Ceco Door and Curries. This product combines industrial-grade steel doors with an aesthetically pleasing wood-grain design that complements a robust set of wood-grain stainable steel door options. The new product can be used by a wide set of commercial applications that use wood for its warm, calming appearance, including health care and education.
The Madera and CURRIStain Smooth Grain Doors are smooth steel doors that have a tight wood grain stain design such as those found in maple, cherry or birch wood. The design of the door means that it won’t crack or chip like wood, has a 3-hour fire rating and temperature-rise options, and is moisture- and pest-resistant. With six standard finishes available, the wood-grain patterns are stained to follow the true grain direction of genuine paneled stile and rail wood doors and also can be custom color-matched to fit virtually any design. Astragals and window kits are available with the same Smooth Grain stain to complete the door package.
“Stemming from years of design innovation experience, Madera and CURRIStain Smooth Grain Doors give designers the best of both worlds,” says Stacey Callahan, ASSA ABLOY Door Group’s vice president of marketing and innovation. “This new offering provides a unique opening solution that combines the strength and durability of steel doors with the beautiful and comforting feel of wood, fit for commercial office space, schools and health-care facilities.”
As more companies implement return-to-workplace plans, repeated and thorough cleaning and sanitizing practices will be the new norm. However, many traditional commercial doors aren’t designed to withstand rigorous cleaning cycles. This new smooth wood-grain steel door is highly durable and can weather repetitive scrubbing and cleaning. Furthermore, designers and architects will find that the versatility of the wood-grain door, along with other ASSA ABLOY offerings, bring aspects of home into workspaces to create a warmer environment and provide design freedom not typically available for commercial spaces.
