Large Metal Door Problems and Solutions

by Avner Mendelstein

The latest years in design and architecture have brought us a rapid rise in popularity of large metal doors. Huge metal doors, oversized metal doors, giant metal doors, big metal doors, wide metal doors, broad metal doors, tall metal doors, thick metal doors, sturdy metal doors, damage resistant metal doors, reinforced metal doors all fit into the same category. Those kinds of doors come in many different finishes as well. Some of the popular finishes are large polished metal doors, large shiny metal doors, and large brushed metal doors.

Metal Door Problems

What we found out is that there are many manufacturers of metal doors, but very few companies who can make large metal doors, even fewer who can do it right. So many problems can arise from large metal doors.

One of the biggest problems that can come along with metal doors, especially large metal doors, is weight. By and large, metal tends to be heavier than wood, meaning you can make large metal doors that are simply too heavy for builders to handle and install. The weight behind these doors can also cause undue stress on door hardware and areas surrounding the door. We have seen cases where the doors broke the hinges, caused broken tracks and sliders, cracked door jambs and expensive molding around the door, all because of the weight of the metal doors. It’s more common than you think that the doors themselves might even break, bend, or crack. They are also very susceptible to warping. If your large metal doors warp, they will not close properly and will become non-functional.

Doors using our technology can be up to 90% lighter weight compared to competitor doors!

We have made the technology 100% eco-friendly, by using a process that uses no waste and takes very little energy to produce. Most door manufactures have a great deal of excessive weight compared to ours.
