HOUSTON, Tx., Feb. 18, 2020 (PRNewswire) — Due to an increase in demand for its patented steel doors, GlassCraft Door Company® recently installed a large Italpresse hot press in order to triple capacity for its Buffalo Forge® product line. The new press will enable GlassCraft to assemble a door slab in 4 minutes, significantly improving the company’s efficiency in producing its steel doors.

Forward-Looking Ingenuity
Known in the industry for its focus on innovation, GlassCraft has secured multiple patents on its products including one specifically pertaining to an improved steel door with a dual support assembly without corner clips which prevents the transfer of energy quickly and efficiently from the front of the door to the back of the door. This innovative door construction design has created a high demand for the Buffalo Forge brand of steel doors.

Made of 14- and 18-gauge steel for a dent-proof door, ThermaPremium are engineered for optimum quality. These doors include a composite threshold, built-in drainage system, ready-to-install and weatherproof entryway and reinforced door frame. The doors are also Windstorm rated – 80 DP ratings. The ThermaPlus line combines the benefits of steel and composite, creating a steel door with a high-end look that can be trimmed in the field during installation and has a thermal break that is not always available in other steel and wrought iron product lines. GlassCraft Buffalo Forge Steel ThermaPlus doors was selected for the Window & Door Product innovation award in 2017. The product line was also recognized this year by Door & Window Market with its Green Award for making environmentally safe enhancements to the finishing process of the material.

Both Buffalo Forge ThermaPremium and ThermaPlus doors are available in a wide range of designs that go from a contemporary minimalist look to offering features such as wrought iron grilles, decorative glass and speakeasies.
