Hollow Metal Door Series Options: Steelcraft
Steelcraft is a manufacturer of hollow metal door and frame solutions. Beacon Commercial Door & Lock serves as a regional distributor of Steelcraft products here in the Mountain West. There are various styles and options available from Steelcraft and these different hollow metal door series are summarized in this article.
L-Series Hollow Metal Door
The L-series hollow metal door is one of the most common supplied by Beacon. It has flush faces on both sides of the door and an interlocking, visible edge seam as standard. L-series doors come in metal gauges including 14, 16, 18, and 20. 20 gauge metal is very light-duty and isn’t frequently used for commercial application while 14 is on the opposite side of the spectrum and is a extra heavy-duty for high abuse scenarios.
The L-series doors are 1-3/4″ thick and include a continuous bonding of the steel face sheets to the core material. Core systems available in the L-series hollow metal door include the standard Honeycomb or the optional Polystyrene or Polyurethane core.
Many hardware preps and other options are available. Speak with a Beacon sales rep today to receive a free quote.
B-Series Hollow Metal Door
B-series hollow metal doors are similar in appearance to the L-series doors with a flush face. B-series doors come with 20 gauge vertical steel stiffeners which support the external steel faces of the door. The stiffeners are welded to (1) face sheet and bonded to the opposite panel. Areas between the vertical steel stiffeners is filled with fiberglass batt insulation. These hollow metal doors are also standard 1-3/4″ thick. The B-series hollow metal door is available in 18, 16, and 14 gauge metal.
B-series can also be specially constructed for STC applications.
CE-Series Hollow Metal Door
Hollow metal doors can come with embossed panels on the faces of the door. The CE-series hollow metal door offers many design options for embossed paneling. A-40 galvannealed steel sheet is standard as well as a polystyrene core.
