Glenview Haus now accommodates commercial clientele an expansive collection of Specialty Doors. Including historical renovation and other modern designs for commercial offices and buildings, Glenview Haus's solid wood entry doors use the latest technology to ensure duration and style. Fire-rated entry doors ensure the maximum protection in case of fire for any business or commercial enterprise. Like all Glenview Haus wood entry and interior doors, Specialty Doors can be customized in countless ways to fit the design of the building and the vision of our clients. Whether it is intricate carvings reminiscent of an era long ago, or a more simplistic, modern design, Glenview Haus is able to help clients create their perfect door.


Glenview Haus Historically Renovated Doors

Historical Renovated DoorsGlenview Haus’ Historical Renovated Doors are designed to transport guests to another era while being built with modern technology. The team at Glenview Haus studies the original design of the door and works with you to recreate all of the unique details that initially adorned the door. They can replicate exact panel and sticking profiles no matter how complex and intricate, to ensure the aesthetic design is an exact match and meets the client’s needs. Historically Renovated Doors are redesigned with current technology and furniture-quality wood, so they have improved insulation qualities and can better endure the elements. Glenview Haus is also able to make historically renovated doors fire-rated to ensure the utmost protection of the building and its occupants while meeting compliance and local building codes.

Recently, Glenview Haus finished restoring the wooden doors for Chicago Temple First United Methodist Church, also known as First Methodist Episcopal Church. This landmark building was completed in the year 1923, and at the time was the largest building in Chicago. Glenview Haus was able to reproduce the features of the door unique to its time-period, such as the wrought-iron clavos and ornamental decorative hardware. This historical renovation project is only one example of Glenview Haus’ ability to recreate the past in the present.


Construction Methods

Focused on making sure that their Historically Renovated Doors are made with the highest quality construction techniques, Glenview Haus engineers the doors in two ways that add durability and stability. Glenview Haus’ solid wood historically renovated doors are crafted from the world’s finest hardwoods. The premium grade components of these doors are first kiln dried, and then craftsmen carefully match grain textures and colors to craft a beautiful wood door. Additionally, Glenview Haus’ manufacturing capabilities allow for the application of a European method of construction to historically renovated doors. The European construction doors are based on the door sandwich design. This means that furniture-grade wooden veneers cover a thermal insulation board with aluminum elements for added stability. This construction method delivers an excellent thermal performance and overall product durability so that your historical renovation and landmark projects will stand the test of time and last for years to come. 


Glenview Haus Fire-Rated Doors

fire-rated doorsGlenview Haus offers clients fire-rated doors to ensure the maximum protection in case of fire for any business or commercial enterprise. Our fire-rated doors are completely custom made and architectural grade, while being officially certified and rated up to 90 minutes.

These doors provide a perfect combination of safety and style, allowing a clean, consistent look with all the same details as the rest of the doors throughout the building. From replacing extremely elaborate doors in a landmark hotel to providing a custom designed church entryway, our fire-rated doors are perfect for historical restorations, landmark projects, religious organizations, high-end commercial and hospitality establishments and all other areas where a simple flush metal door will not do the job justice. We produce fire-rated doors to meet your exact specifications, while ensuring furniture grade quality and artisan craftsmanship. The ability to match distinct designs, produce custom sizes, and choose from a variety of wood species and unlimited finishes will make sure that your custom made Fire-Rated Doors will be exactly what you are looking for.

By using a fire-rated core in the Fire-Rated Door manufacturing process, we can custom make units that are rated 20, 45, 60 and 90 minutes. Instead of being stuck with hollow metal frames for rated applications, our process also allows the jamb to be rated so as to provide an entire entry system that will completely match all other doors in terms of wood species, design and finish. Glenview Haus offers rated glass and glazing options for rated doors as well to let in light but still keep people safe and meet code.
