12 Oct Two New Aluminum and Glass Door Options from Element Designs
Charlotte, North Carolina based Element Designs sustainably makes its products in the USA and the company has just introduced two new door options that can add a lot of pizzazz to a foil or natural wood bathroom or kitchen design.
The new AF016 is an improvement to an existing profile (AF008), and it allows the designer to create taller doors than previously available – up to 96”. It is a beautiful narrow frame door with glass overlay and it is available in all twelve of the finishes shown. It’s shown here (bottom right, image courtesy of Garcia Cabinetmakers) in brushed stainless with white matte back-painted glass Inserts. Sample doors and sample profile corners are available. As noted, the maximum height/width is 96” and the minimum is 5-1/2”. The maximum area is 16 square feet. AF016 panels are not recommended for drawer fronts. The insert is 4mm (.156”) with a seamed edge, and handle hole locations must be specified at the time of ordering if the insert is tempered glass.
The other new offering, AF210, is an aluminum frame cabinet door (shown at left, top and bottom). This lets a cabinetmaker offer a client the option of double-sided inserts – two opaque inserts within the same door frame. AF210 is perfect for vanity or closets/storage applications where you see mirror or back-painted glass on the front, and then you also have mirror that can be used from the back when the door is open. Sample AF210 doors are available. The dimensions are the same as the AF016 but there’s an option to contact Element Designs for dimensions exceeding the recommended maximums. Plus, the AF210 door weight may require additional hinges. And the company’s P3-32 finger pulls must be surface-mounted on the AF210 frame – it can’t be flush mounted with full glass overlay. Here, the insert is 4mm (.156”) with a flat edge polish, and it’s only available with opaque back-painted glass and mirror inserts on both front and back inserts.
Element Designs has also just published a new digital catalog that can be seen here.
