CraftMaster Hollow-Core Interior Door Delivers Authentic Flat-Panel Design

CraftMaster has designed its new hollow-core Conmore Door for home owners who are seeking the familiar comforts of traditional design in more contemporary, fresh styles.

The Conmore interior door features five, smooth and flat panels in a horizontal layout.

Unlike raised-panel doors that attempt to capture the classic, five-panel door style, Conmore is molded with a true flat-panel design that reflects the authenticity and genuine style of the traditional five-panel door.

“Home owners today are looking for interior doors that can complement their range of decorating styles, from traditional to modern,” said Bob Merrill, CMI’s president and CEO.

“The Conmore door has an elegant smooth surface and flat five-panel design that merges classical and contemporary styles,” he said.

Available in 6’8” and 7’0” passage and bifold sizes, Conmore can be specified with finger joint or MDF stiles and rails.

It also can be specified as a CraftMaster Green Door, which is made with sustainable materials, recylcled content and low-VOC primers and adhesives, producing low-formaldehyde emissions.

CraftMaster’s molded door design (facing) — which is used to make the finished door — is third-party certified by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS)  to contain a minimum of 70% pre-consumer recycled wood content and can contribute to certification under such programs as the National Green Building Standard.

It is certified by SCS to contain no urea formaldehyde.

The hollow core Conmore door will be available in the third quarter of this year. A sold core version was introduced in January at the NAHB International Builders’ Show.

Like all CraftMaster interior doors, the Conmore is manufactured by CMI from molded, high-density fiberboard to resist shrinking, cracking and joint separation, which may occur in wood doors.

Headquartered in Chicago, CraftMaster Manufacturing, Inc. is a member of the NAHB Leading Suppliers Council.
