TruStile is a relative newcomer to the door industry, having been founded in 1995. The company has focused its efforts on what it refers to as “No limits!” manufacturing, the idea that manufacturers should offer flexibility in design in addition to short lead times. In other words, customization should not be a lengthy process. The company claims that “if you can dream it, we can design and build it.”
TruStile Door Construction
TruStile utilizes medium density fiberboard (MDF) for paint-grade applications and is the leading manufacturer of solid MDF doors in the United States. Using MDF for paint-grade applications reduces cost and improves thermal expansion/contraction properties of the finished product. Stained doors are made using veneer or solid wood. TruStile offers three basic construction lines as follows.
- TruStile MDF – TruStile MDF doors are made with genuine stile and rail construction and are never routed or stamped. All surfaces are made using super-refined MDF because it provides the smoothest possible painting surface and won’t shrink, expand, or warp. All TruStile MDF doors are fully customizable and contain 75% recycled material.
- TruStile Reserve Wood – Reserve Wood doors are made using LVL stiles and rails in addition to engineered panels that contain a composite core. Hand-matched veneers are created using a proprietary color matching and grading system.
- TruStile Wood – Wood doors from TruStile are produced using dowel construction, lumber stave cores, and edge-glued solid panels. These doors offer an affordable solution for a traditional door.
All TruStile doors are guaranteed against defects in workmanship and materials for life. This helps contribute to the company’s green philosophy by ensuring that products don’t end up in landfills after just a few years. With proper care, TruStile doors will last as long as any home.
