Tampa, FL. (PRWEB) February 15, 2008
Masonite announced today that it will unveil the new Flagstaff™ at the International Builders' Show in February 2008. Building on the company's already diverse product lines, the Flagstaff is the culmination of customer input, trend research and creative design to create a door family that clearly and elegantly links the interior and exterior door. This progressive design of the Flagstaff doors is a pleasing blend between the appearance of historically accurate wood door construction and trend-setting aesthetics.
"Building upon our history of being the first manufacturer to offer a molded hardboard door, we are quite excited to share this design innovation with the building industry," said Keith Kometer, Vice President of Product Management. "The Flagstaff is a bold evolution in door design that indicates the brand's progressive shift to link its interior and exterior door lines. This provides homeowners the freedom to select an updated version of a timeless classic and easily carry that design throughout the home."
The Interior Flagstaff door will be added to Masonite's Anniversary Collection of molded doors, a collection representing the ultimate in wood door authenticity with architecturally correct designs and all the benefits of a composite wood product. These doors will be available in 80- and 96-inch heights, as well as all standard widths. All construction options are available for this door including hollow core, Safe 'N Sound, and solid core. The Flagstaff will also be available in 20, 45 & 60 minute fire ratings. The interior version of the Flagstaff will be produced as a smooth door.
"Exterior doors are often times thought of as the heart of a home's design. With the launch of the Flagstaff doors Masonite will offer homeowners the ability to make a sophisticated design statement that doesn't stop at the front door," said Doug Thompson, Senior Director of Product Management, Exterior Doors.
The exterior version of the Flagstaff door will be added to Masonite's Barrington Series of fiberglass doors. The exterior Flagstaff will come in 36- and 42-inch widths, and will be offered in both 80- and 96-inch heights. The exterior version of the Flagstaff will be a fiberglass door with a mahogany texture and is stainable for an authentic wood appearance.
