Entrance to the locker room of championsGO BLUE! Another Detroit Door success story.
Last fall, Detroit Door supplied hollow metal doors and finish hardware for the major renovation and expansion of the University of Michigan’s Locker Room. Due to the abusive environment that the locker room potentially could endure brought upon by the football players having a quick blocking practice prior to the game, fiberglass doors with stainless steel protective plates on the bottom were installed, along with heavy duty Schlage and Von Duprin door hardware. The key feature of this project is the oversized doors, which are 7’6” rather than the conventional 7’, to accommodate the even more massive build created by all of the equipment worn by the Big 10 football team.

It was our cooperative spirit that not only landed this high profile job for Detroit Door, but also guaranteed the project's great results. "We assisted the architect by doing a lot of the engineering and a lot of the design and functional issues," said Brett Thistlethwaite, General Manager Hollow Metal Division for the Detroit Door Ann Arbor branch. "We worked a lot with the owner, too, during the construction process of this project."Being open to suggestions and willing to use creativity, we secured a problem free job and a please... 

Airport center-hung swing doorsNew Automatic doors give Smith and McNamara terminals new look

The 46-year old Smith Terminal, located at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport handles about 6 million passengers a year. With this high volume of passengers coming in and out, the automatic doors were frequently out of commission due to years of constant use and being slammed into by baggage carts. Repairs were necessary, but with plans of a new facility on the horizon, cost was a big consideration
