The Skyline series uses non-welded caming for a clean, contemporary
appearance, while Galaxy adds to the company’s collection of liquid crystal
bevelpane, offering privacy without the need for brass, zinc or black
caming. Paragon is a new geometric design with black caming that offers
privacy and design simplicity.
According to the company, its privacy glass collection is available as an option in virtually all of its door lines. The new offerings include Chord glass, which features a vertical, flowing pattern reminiscent of waves on the water; Chinchilla glass, which resembles a free-flowing configuration, presenting quiet lines and unique curves; Rainglass encompasses ripples of cascading water; and Granite glass features a coarse grained arrangement with surface variations over the entire lite.
In addition, each privacy glass panel is triple-paned and Energy Star-qualified. The textured glass is sealed between tempered, clear glass sheets to provide reduced heat transfer, increased thermal performance and improved sound-dampening features within a reliably-constructed frame, according to the company.
In addition, the company has new 12- and 14-inch Craftsman sidelites. These are available in Classic-Craft American Style Collection (with one panel recessed) and Classic-Craft Canvas Collection (with one panel V-groove plank).
The sidelites are offered in American-Style’s fir-grained texture for staining or the Canvas Collection smooth surface that can be painted. The factory-produced, flush-glazed construction of the Classic-Craft Craftsman sidelites is durable, strong and moisture resistant, according to the company.
As a way to meet consumer demand for fiberglass doors in
hardwood grains with ¾-glass options, the company has introduced the Fiber-Classic
mahogany collection 3-panel door. It can be configured for either ¾-rectangle
or ¾-oval lites in 16 different decorative glass options, plus four privacy
options, clear low-E and clear glass.

In addition, HOPPE offers concealed multi-point locks for operable sidelites, which feature retractable engagement points and concealed strikes. Two lock sizes, each with three locking points, help maximize weather sealing capability for a range of panel heights, according to the company.
Likewise, the company will feature its adjustable hinge,
which has surpassed 2.5 million cycles according to ANSI Grade 1 requirements.
It is also available in several finishes, including the company’s high-performance
Set in Stone … and Timber
