Interior Doors Get Redesigned Removable Edge for Easy Maintenance

Share Article

Vinyl Clad Doors Also Offer Green Options for Core and Cladding

The new vinyl door edge for interior doors is easy to replace and can be done in five minutes or less.

InPro Corporation and Eggers Industries, eiDOORS™, announce the development of a newly redesigned replaceable door edge that makes repairs a great deal easier. The vinyl door edge can be replaced without removing the door from the frame. Changeouts can be done in five minutes or less. A redesigned replaceable stainless steel door edge is also available.

Unlike competitors’ designs, the removable door edge is designed to fit behind a standard doorstop, making the edge visible on only one side when the door is closed.

The partnership between Eggers Industries and InPro Corporation to form eiDOORS in 2008 originally focused on saving facilities the cost and time associated with interior door repair and replacement. By cladding interior doors in InPro’s durable rigid vinyl sheet, eiDOORS are an easy to clean, scratch and stain resistant alternative to commonly used wood doors. While the vinyl cladding provides high impact door protection, the new interior door edge, which receives the most impact and damage from carts, gurneys and other equipment, is a massive enhancement to interior door design. It eliminates repairing door edge damage with heavy sanding, which changes the door’s profile, or complete replacement if the damage is too severe.

In addition, architects and facilities can make any eiDOORS product greener. Choosing a quality Eggers Agrifiber or Forest Stewardship Council certified wood door clad with InPro’s non-PVC sheet material may contribute LEED® credits to a building project. This includes the company’s latest innovation: BioPolyPETG+, which combines a biopolymer, PETG and recycled content. All InPro cladding materials are GREENGUARD® certified for indoor air quality, and also hold the GREENGUARD Children and Schools seal.
