Step 4: Provide The Best Finishes Available
Finishes are a big part of what we provide. We have been providing interesting finishes like Porcelain since we started. It is an excellent alternative to wood, but it still has many of the same issues of wood. We are at the mercy of the tile manufacturer. They can discontinue a style and we can longer effectively service our client. More importantly tile also has size restrictions. It only comes in certain size sheets. This means the door covers MUST have a seam. We don’t like seams if possible.
We have partnered with Axolotl. They produce custom coverings for our panels. They are made to order, and we can have them made in much larger sizes… with few, if any, seams. They make coverings in applied metal, applied concrete, terracotta, wood and even glass.
So now the question is not “what can you do?” — more so “what can’t you do?” One would not expect Australia to be the home of such an incredible product, but it has been made there for over 27 years — and they’ve won an insane number of awards. We are the exclusive security door partner to Axolotl, which means that if you want a security and/or ballistic door with an Axolotl finish — there are only two companies you can purchase from: FBS and Axolotl.
