Full View Aluminum
Built to withstand rigorous use in a busy service center, yet offering a clean, contemporary look for many types of architectural applications, General Doors’ Full-view Aluminum Door is an attractive choice when natural light and open visibility are important. Typical installations are as diverse as auto service centers, firehouses, club stores, and upscale retail and restaurant locations.
A classic design with unlimited options in configurations, finishes, and glazing materials that combine to create a door that achieves a fresh and modern look.
Heavy gauge parts, 4-sided extrusions, built-in reinforcing fin, and unique wrap around steel and cap make for a very heavy-duty door.
Aluminum doors are naturally resistant to the deterioration caused by elements and are an excellent choice for many environments not suited to wood or steel doors.
