Commercial Solid Core Wood Door Applications
Commercial wood doors, or architectural wood doors, are often found in hospitals, office spaces, schools, and many other buildings.

Commercial solid core doors come in a variety of finishes like birch, cherry, African mahogany, white maple, and more. Solid core wood doors are used to provide an elegant and professional look to the building. For this reason, the door closer used should be high quality with a finished appearance to match.
