Series 1200 doors are designed to use 1/2" thick tempered glass up to 12'-0" high. These tall doors are controlled by standard floor closers.

Tempered Glass Door image

Tempered Glass Door - Door Series 250

Series 250 doors have full width solid top and bottom rails and very thin vertical stiles bonded to glass and are available in aluminum, bronze clad, or stainless steel clad. The doors are furnished in either 1/2" or 3/4" thick tempered glass. For doors over 8'-6" preliminary drawings should be sent to Blumcraft for review. Series 250 doors are adaptable to most overhead/floor closers, automatic operators, electric deadbolts, electromagnetic locks, and door position switches. Contact our sales department to insure compatibility. All Blumcraft panic devices, deadbolt housings, and locks, except CH-800 center housings, are applicable to Series 250.
Floating Transoms image

Floating Transoms

This transom supporting technique has been developed by Blumcraft to give the entrance a clean glass look. The narrow metal member supporting the transom glass is suspended by small stainless steel rods concealed in the joints between the transom glass and the sidelights. A highly reflective finish of the B-1250 transom bar will further minimize the presence of supporting members as it blends into the reflection of the glass. Electric strikes can be used with transom in combination with Blumcraft panic devices and deadbolt housings. Transom bars can be mounted to walls or framing.
