New Specialty Products Directory on SDI Website

July 17, 2013, WESTLAKE, Ohio ― The Steel Door Institute recently added a new Specialty Products page to its website, which has quickly become one of the most popular destinations. In just a few months it has been visited by more than 3,000 design professionals.

The page lists seven specialty door types:

  • acoustic
  • blast and pressure resistant
  • bullet resistant
  • custom
  • fire rated
  • hurricane
  • tornado

Each door type links to a page that shows which members provide those products. It also links to the specific page on the manufacturer’s website that has information on the product. This allows architects in just a few clicks to find an SDI member that can provide a specialty door.

Jeff Wherry, Managing Director of SDI, said, “Steel’s inherent strength makes it the natural choice for specialty doors and frames. Internationally recognized testing facilities have shown steel to outperform other door materials in fire rating, cycle, and tornado tests, among others. Details on each material’s performance in various tests can be found in the Why Steel? report.”

Wherry continued, “The Specialty Products page was developed to assist architects with finding the most suitable products for their projects.” It can be found here.
