MAUMEE, Ohio--Therma-Tru continues to deliver styles homeowners are looking for while producing high-quality, reliable products. This year attendees of the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show® (IBS) in Orlando, Florida, got a firsthand look at Therma-Tru’s 2017 portfolio of new on-trend products. New door styles, glass designs and stylish handlesets were showcased at IBS.
This year it was important for Therma-Tru to launch products that can be customized to fit the homeowner’s style, and create a statement look while providing security and privacy. “With multiple generations purchasing homes and craving standout entries that fit their personalities, we are excited to offer new products that meet their needs,” says Donna Contat, director of brand management for Therma-Tru Corp.
Most new products were available for sale beginning February 6, 2017, and include:
Smooth-Star Shaker-Style Doors & Sidelites
A transitional update to the historic Shaker style, new Smooth-Star Shaker-style doors and sidelites feature recessed panels and flush-glazed glass to deliver a simple design with broad appeal. Flat simulated divided lites (SDLs) can be added to the door and sidelites to complement window grid patterns and other architectural home elements.
Wide Simulated Divided Lites (SDLs)
Add contemporary style to the entry with 3-½" wide SDL bars. These bars feature a flat profile to complement the seamless appearance of flush-glazed glass for a clean, sleek look. Available for Fiber-Classic Oak Collection and Smooth-Star doors.
Internal Blinds 47" Glass Options
Now available in 47" glass size for doors and sidelites, internal blinds provide the privacy and convenience of a cordless blind enclosed between glass. Homeowners can now create a 3/4-lite look for 6'8" doors and a 1/2-lite look for 8'0" doors. Available in both wood-grained, stainable and smooth, paintable doors and sidelites.
Grip-Style Handlesets for Multi-Point Locking Systems (MPLS)
Two new grip-style handlesets will be available for the multi-point locking system, offering an intuitive option with on-trend aesthetics.
