Door Models

Vale Company manufactures various FRP doors to meet any standard your entrance needs may require. All models can be altered with custom reinforcements to insure hardware retention in the most demanding of venues.

All Vale FRP doors are constructed with interlocking aluminum edge trim designed for easy component breakdown and field repair. Most of our competitors do not offer this important feature. Our designers believe one door model cannot possibly meet all potential needs as in the case of concealed hardware application where others are forced to cut, splice or weld their side rails to accommodate concealed vertical rod hardware, thereby weakening the door leaf. Additionally, in the case of full or double lite doors most of our competition must change out these openings from FRP to aluminum style and rail doors because the vision lite cutouts weaken their narrow style product beyond acceptability. The Vale V-600 is the best solution in these instances and does not aesthetically denigrate the building exterior by mixing FRP and aluminum finishes.

Door Styles

All Vale vision kits are custom sized to door dimensions and adjusted for specific hardware requirements to provide the most esthetically pleasing entrances. Other manufacturers who utilize stock sized door lites for economy and simplicity sacrifice beauty, appearance and proportionality. Vision kits are available in standard and anodized finishes as well as custom Kynar colors designed to be coordinated with all door trim. Factory glazing is available in 1/4" or 1" insulated glazing options. See our available color samples.
