This door could be used as a door, room partition, headboard or as large piece of dimensional, industrial art.
An M & E catalogue from 1918 describes the composition of the door as, "cross-laid corrugated [steel] sheets on the reinforced frame, makes the Evans Almetl Door by far the best and strongest on the market; while the absence of any wood core makes it considerably lighter than the standard three-ply tin-clad fire door."
The corrugation is configured horizontally on one side and vertical on the other, providing structural rigidity.
History: The door was salvaged from a structure known as Lexington Furniture, Plant 1. Today, Lexington Furniture has consolidated this building's processes with a second plant and are still in business. The oldest parts of LFI Plant 1 date back to 1901 when it was then operated by Dixie Furniture. The door was salvaged from a section of the plant that was undergoing renovation.
Condition: Authentic and expected dents, dings, scuffs and patina. A sheet of steel has been bolted to one side of the door to secure and support an arm that appears to have been added as a locking mechanism. As expected with zinc-coated, galvanized steel, minimal corrosion and rust.
The salvage of Lexinton Furniture was featured on season 8, episode 2 of the DiY network show, "Salvage Dawgs".
