    DECATUR, MI

    Special-Lite, Inc. has announced the addition of two new All-Fiberglass (AF) series of doors and frames to the Special-Lite® line of heavy-duty entrance systems.

    Included are AF-100 Series doors, the industry’s only unitized, hermetically sealed, fully “pultruded” doors. Also included are AF-200 Series doors, which feature a completely sealed design with a range of finish options including pebble grain, sandstone-textured, and wood grain shared with the company’s SL Series doors.

    These new additions to the Special-Lite line reflect the quality and durability that have long been associated with the Special-Lite brand. The All-Fiberglass or ‘AF’ designation enables architects, specifiers and end-users to identify the products as suitable for applications requiring high corrosion and impact resistance, as well as easy sterilization for healthcare and food industry environments.

    The AF-200 Series doors represent a new product innovation, marrying all-fiberglass technology with popular Special-Lite face sheet textures to create a completely sealed door with versatile and  attractive finish options compatible with our SL Series products.
