COMPANY OVERVIEW

With over 60 years of experience AMBICO has become a world-wide leader in the specialized door industry. Known for pushing the envelope we, at all times, keep top of mind that every building entrance generates an impression and conveys a message about what may be found within. Our products provide our clients with the ability to define that impression and create their own message in ways they may think is unavailable or impossible.

Whether an opening is commissioned for a modern company headquarters or a century old heritage building, AMBICO guarantees exceptional door and frame assemblies that combine unique design with function and serviceability. In other words, beauty does not have to take aback seat to technical considerations. A truly handsome door can also be blast-resistant, bullet-resistant, or meet rigorous acoustic requirements. If you can imagine it, we will strive to build it.

AMBICO products are serviced by an expert team of engineers and sales personnel. Ourselected network of manufacturer's representatives and independent distributors enhances ourability to provide dedicated client service across North America and throughout the world.

We provide Decorative products that include recessed panel, brass clad, bronze clad, as well as stainless steel doors, frames and windows.

Security Wood Door and Steel Frame image

Security Wood Door and Steel Frame

The designers of behavioral health facilities have long searched for wood door solutions for high-risk areas such as patient rooms, washrooms and cross-corridor openings. The traditional stave and structural lumber core wood door solutions have not proven robust enough for these types of openings.

 
As a result, we were contacted by the architects of these facilities and asked to develop a suitable solution: a door that leverages a proprietary steel structural door core encased in hardwood door edges and finished with two-ply veneer and backer faces. The result is a door that has the strength of steel, but with the soft decorative finish of wood.

 
Security Wood Door and Steel Frame products can include Anti-Barricade technology. This can be used for patient room applications to allow staff access to the room should the patient barricade the door. 


Security wood doors and steel frames are available as components or as complete assemblies including hardware components for turnkey solutions. This includes anti-barricade applications where heavy duty double acting continuous hinge and an anti-barricade wood swing stop system and anti-ligature mortised lock can be furnished with steel frame and wood door. 


Security Wood Door and Steel frames can be available with any veneer species and they can be custom factory stained, clear coat or prime painted for custom paint finish.

Custom engineered solutions are available for debris impact resistance based on project specific requirements.


Common applications include exterior outswing doors where water seats the door into the frame. Solutions are also available for unseated applications.


Assemblies include customized anchor solutions to ensure integrity of the frame installation. Solutions are available that include 4-sided frames or ADA-compliant bumper or saddle thresholds.


In applications where doors are seated into the frame, standard builder's hardware can be used. In applications where doors are unseated, special hinges and latching hardware may be required; in these cases, the specialty hardware is supplied by AMBICO.
