Boston Public Schools - Taft

The Boston Public Schools facilities operations call for specific extra heavy duty Doors, Frames, and Hardware that are proven to stand up to daily abuse. The fire rated entrance in this photo is composed of Doors and Frames by De La Fontaine. The doors are 14 gauge, steel stiffened, continuously welded doors with full flush seamless vision kits. The frames are also 14 gauge and have a custom profile and sidelights to match the original design. The hardware used is the most reliable in the industry; Von Duprin 99 rim exit devices with a Von Duprin 9954 keyed removable mullion. The doors are hinged on Select SL 24 HD full mortise continuous hinges and are shut by LCN 4041 extra duty arm closers. If you have an entrance that is subject to constant abuse, the above combination of doors and hardware is your long lasting and maintenance free solution.
