Special-Lite AMP Doors provide the traditional appearance of wood, without the disadvantages of real wood. Special-Lite AMP Doors can't warp, split, peel or rot, and don't require periodic refinishing. The AMP surface offers a degree of resistance to stains, scuffs and impacts that can easily damage wood. It's also unaffected by the elements and humid environments, and offers good cleanability.

Nonfire-rated Special-Lite AMP Flush Doors are available in a Colonial style (Model SL-18), a classic 6-panel style door designed to meet the aesthetic considerations of Georgian and Colonial style architecture, and a Wood Grain style (Model SL-19) Flush Door.

The SL-22 Fire-Rated Door features the same AMP face sheet as the SL-19 Wood Grain Flush Door bonded to a mineral core with Fire Stop perimeter for secure hardware attachment. Edge capping and vision lite kits are natural finish stainless steel similar in appearance to clear anodized aluminum.
