Tubelite enhances quality and efficiencies of custom entrances with 3-D modeling

Helping create welcoming entrances in new construction, renovations and expansions, Tubelite Inc. has enhanced its custom entrance systems for institutional and commercial projects.

The company’s 3-D software modeling tools and computer numeric controlled (CNC) programming offer efficiencies that save materials, reduce lead-times and increase quality.

“The 3-D modeling of these door/frame details let us preview the functionality for hardware attachments prior to touching any aluminum,” explains Mary Olivier, Tubelite’s marketing manager. “Once that process is finalized and all potential conflicts have been addressed, the hardware placement is programmed into the CNC for precise, quality manufacturing.”

Olivier continues, “We pride ourselves on our ability to provide consistently short lead-times. The dependability of our products is backed with personalized service and technology to support smooth installation for on-time scheduling and on budget to deliver long-term value. Each door is manufactured to meet the project’s aesthetic, performance and environmental goals.”

Available in a nearly unlimited palette of colors, Tubelite’s architectural aluminum, custom doors may be specified in Narrow, Medium and Wide Stiles, as well as heavy-use Monumental Doors and high-performance Thermal Doors. Universal design details and hardware options further enhance these doors and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, where applicable.

All of Tubelite’s custom doors and frames are manufactured using EcoLuminum™, a high recycled-content aluminum billet composition featuring environmentally-friendly, durable finishes. Each profile extruded for these door products contains a minimum of 80% reclaimed aluminum. Special requests for even higher recycled content can be provided, up to and including meeting specifications requiring 100% reclaimed aluminum.

Painted finishes are applied using a 100% air capture system and destroy the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with a regenerative thermal oxidizer, so there is no adverse environmental impact. Eco-friendly anodize contain no VOCs and its proprietary finishing process sends 90% less waste to landfills than traditional anodizing processes.

Thermal barriers and high-performance glass optimize the doors’ energy efficiency. These durable and environmental benefits of Tubelite’s doors may contribute to projects seeking certification by the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® Rating System™.

Tubelite’s custom entrance systems can be paired with standard doors, windows, storefront, curtainwall and daylight control systems, such as Max/Block™ Sun Shade and aLuminate™ Light Shelf.

Tubelite will be exhibiting at AIA 2011 in booth #2228. Please see for an informational video.
