New CMI Door Makes a Home Feel Like a Castle
In Booth N737 at the International Builders’ Show, CraftMaster Manufacturing, Inc. will be introducing an arched-top, two-panel plank interior door that brings character and charm to any room in the home.
For home owners who live by the motto, “your home is your castle,” CMI’s new arched-top door helps make that vision a reality. With its graceful curve, distinctive grooves and elegant, smooth finish, the CraftMaster Cashal blends elements of historical door design with modern functionality, making it ideal for a broad range of home styles and decor.
The door is derived from the old city of Cashal in County Tipperary, Ireland, whose name originally meant “castle.” Traditionally, many castle doors featured arched tops, and some were created as two functional panels.
“The arched-top, two-panel door design reflects the strength, simplicity and security of castle construction from centuries ago,” explains CMI President and CEO Bob Merrill. “While the general door style has a long and rich history of use in homes and buildings worldwide, what makes the CraftMaster Cashal so appealing to today’s home owners, builders and remodelers are the contemporary design features — its updated groove, new profile and ready-to-paint smooth finish.”
Beginning this fall, Cashal doors are being made available in standard 6’8” and 7’0” heights; 8’0” doors will be available in early 2009. Cashal will be offered in passage widths from 1’6” to 3’0” in either hollow core or solid core construction, and with finger-joint or MDF stiles and rails. Bifolds will be available for most standard openings from 2’0” to 6’0”.
