There are tremendous benefits to installing hollow metal doors, whether for new construction or retrofitting, which is why we are seeing them becoming increasingly popular for both interior and exterior use. These advantages include:
Maintenance: Hollow metal doors are extremely low-maintenance. Many, especially those that are made of galvanized steel for corrosion resistance, require virtually no maintenance at all.
Durability: Hollow metal doors tend to last longer than wood doors or other types of doors. They are also highly resistant to impact damage, wear and tear, and in the case of stainless-steel hollow metal doors, rust. This makes them great for sometimes challenging environments like schools and hospitals.
Insulation: Hollow metal doors have an insulated core, meaning rooms with hollow metal doors can see significant savings with respect to energy costs.
Fire Safety: Hollow metal doors are typically nonflammable. They will not burn like wooden doors or even melt as quickly as standard metal doors.
Lightweight Design: The fact that these doors are lightweight means construction using hollow metal doors can proceed more quickly and easily.
