Many people find the sleek look and cleanliness of stainless steel appliances a must in their homes. They get stainless steel refrigerators, stoves, dishwaters, sinks, etc. However, in many facilities, such as hospitals, pharmaceutical facilities, food processing plants and sewage treatment plants, the cleanliness a stainless steel door and frame provides is a necessity. Stainless steel is a non-absorbable material. Combine that with continuously welded edges on the stainless doors, and you get a door on which germs and bacteria won’t grow. This makes them ideal for places concerned with cleanliness.
LaForce’s stainless steel doors are crafted of three basic parts: stiffeners, insulation and face sheet. The interior of the door is made of styrene, urethane or honeycomb. All the corners, the top and bottom of the door included, are continuously welded to prevent water and germs from getting and sitting in the door’s edges. For aesthetics and cleanliness, the door’s vertical edge seams run the full height of the door, and the joint welds are ground smooth making the joint almost invisible. The joints are also buffed after the grinding to make the joint finish match the door’s face. For extra support, hinge reinforcements, made of seven gauge metal, are welded inside the seams and are virtually unseen.
