Why MPI?

Why should I specify MPI doors and frames over any other manufacturer's products? This is asked from time to time by those not familiar with MPI. It is a fair and honest question which deserves an answer that is fair and honest. The following are just a few reasons for choosing MPI.

For over 38 years MPI has produced custom hollow metal doors and frames for distribution nationally and internationally. As an active member of the Steel Door Institute (SDI) and the National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers (NAAMM), MPI adheres to the manufacturing specifications established by the SDI and the Hollow Metal Manufacturers Association (HMMA) division of NAAMM. Products meet or exceed specification standards ANSI A250.8 and ANSI A250.4. Products also comply with all national and international codes. 

MPI offers a wide range of doors and frames in various thicknesses ranging from 18 gauge (0.042 min) to 12 gauge (0.093 min) steel.

Products are manufactured for fire ratings up to three hours positive pressure including, hard to find stainless steel doors and frames. Fire compliance with UL and NFPA specifications.

Utilization of most up to date technological innovations assures production of quality products at competitive prices. Powerful databases and AutoCAD engineering systems aid in information processing. These, along with an experienced engineering staff, allow MPI to offer one of a kind service in the integration of complex hardware types. Our staff is available to assist in the design of  the most complicated door and frame systems.

Comprehensive Quality Assurance initiative have been developed and implemented to ensure all products are subjected to rigorous inspection and exacting QA measures before leaving the factory. It is a wide-ranging program encompassing manufacturing processes from order entry through delivery. Quality and excellence is all phases of operation have brought MPI the recognition as a leading manufacturer of custom doors and frames. Custom means every door and frame is carefully hand-crafted to exact specifications. We do not pull components from a shelf, modify them and ship to a job site.

Our efforts to supply a superior product do not end with systems and procedures. These are simply preliminaries in our quest for excellence. Most manufacturers do what we do, but MPI goes beyond the minimum requirements in many instances. The following pages highlight some of those extras built in to our everyday product... many of which are "options" by others. MPI places great emphasis on many details that are rarely visible in the finished product.
