   Frontline Building Products showcased its light commercial door, which has an all-aluminum clad frame system, comes pre-hung with four 4 -1/2 inch by 4-1/2-inch commercial grade hinges, and has an integral aluminum nail fin. Frontline offers custom colors for the exterior and a variety of hardware choices.
   
 Frontline's Larry Kerscher highlights the company's pre-clad frame system, which eliminates cladding labor for transoms. Customers can clad an existing box unit that will line up exactly with the FrontLine clad system, and order pre-built transoms with or without glass.
   
 Jeld-Wen displayed several new products in its booth, including its architectural fiberglass door line. The doors use new soft-mold technology, delivering the character, warmth and beauty of a wood door, Jeld-Wen reports. More sustainable than painted wood, the doors come in 20 different styles.
   
 Jeld-Wen also displayed the mix-and-match door.
   
 Masonite now offers Max XPress Configurator, a web-based visualizer system for dealers to easily help clients select options and imagine their new door. The system features a touch screen to choose options and see them displayed as real-size window glass.
