New Haven, CT – Good Design is constantly evolving as it embraces new technologies and incorporates new ideas and concepts. The newly refurbished ASSA ABLOY Decorative Openings Showroom adheres to these principles of Good Design with a complete update that integrates the latest door and hardware advancements.

In just the two years since the Decorative Openings Showroom initially launched, the form and functionality of door openings have improved thanks to door and hardware innovations. These new developments are now built into the many displays and product mounts found throughout the showroom.

Design professionals, building owners and end users will find inspiration in the array of door types that are showcased, including flush wood, sketch, stile and rail, thermal fused, stainless steel and hollow metal. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, these doors also come with ratings and certifications to address sound transmission control, sustainability, energy efficiency, fire ratings and blast/ballistic resistance.

The doors in the showroom are paired with coordinated decorative hardware suites that bring together commercial-grade levers, door and cabinet pulls, hinges, stops and hooks to go along with innovative locking solutions ranging from mechanical locks and key pads, to advanced electronic access control systems.

An ASSA ABLOY exclusive—The True Wood RITE Door—is prominently displayed. The True Wood RITE Door features an integrated doorway assembly that includes a wood door and pre-installed, low-profile hardware that is ideal for cross-corridors and elevator lobby applications.

ASSA ABLOY Decorative Openings Showroom tours are often coupled with free AIA and IDCEC CEU courses and other architectural services such as specification writing assistance, electronic access control consultation and product research.
