CHICAGO, IL -- CMI has introduced a new hollow core, CraftMaster® Conmore™ molded, flat-panel interior door.
The Conmore interior door features five, smooth 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.
"Homeowners today are looking for interior doors that can complement their range of decorating styles, from traditional to modern," said Bob Merrill, CMI president and CEO. "The Conmore door has an elegant smooth surface and flat, five-panel design that merges classic and contemporary styles."
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, recycled content, and low VOC primers and adhesives, and produces 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 percent pre-consumer recycled wood content; contributes to industry programs, such as LEED® for Commercial Interiors, LEED for New Construction and Major Renovations, LEED for Homes, and the National Green Building Standard™; and is certified by SCS to contain no added urea formaldehyde.
The hollow core Conmore door will be available in third quarter 2011; a solid core version was introduced at the 2011 International Builders Show in January.
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. It is also covered by a five-year limited warranty that includes defects in material and workmanship from the original purchase date and applies to the original installation. Costs of labor, installation or finishing for any replacement door are excluded.
