Supa Doors and the Forever Young Initiative

I’m sure you are aware of the steady increase in hospitality projects over the last 18 months. It is a huge improvement over the last few years when there was little to no activity in this sector.

Between Mesker Door, Design Hardware and Supa Doors I am quoting at least 2 projects per week. I have several purchase orders in house for existing projects and the promise of more to come in the next few weeks.

With the recent addition of Supa Doors to my agency I am putting a lot of my focus on these projects and learning more about the hospitality industry in general. For instance, the design differences between full-service, select service and limited-service hotels and how the products I represent best fit into each category.

The superior quality of Supa MDF Stile & Rail Doors make them a perfect choice for both full service and select service projects. The Hampton Inn’s “Forever Young Initiative” is an example of a perfect fit for Supa.

For hoteliers planning to build new Hampton Inns or spiff up their existing franchised properties, Hilton’s corporate leaders have launched an improvement campaign aimed at keeping the ubiquitous brand fresh for investors as well as guests.

Called the Forever Young Initiative, the 127-point refresh will benefit guests as the redesign of the hotel’s exterior, lobby and guests rooms will smack of modern influence. New amenities are geared to accommodate today’s leisure and business guests who travel a lot differently than they did even just five years ago.

One item on the 127 point initiative calls for the use of a sliding barn door to be used at the bathroom or shared between the bathroom and closet. It is actually a very clever design, saving space and using one door for two openings.


Barn Doors

1. A solid ‐ core, single panel, wood barn door must be at the bath or shared between the bath and closet where shown in the prototype drawings. Existing properties must refer to the FF&E Specifications ‐ contact Hilton Worldwide for room types not included.

2. Barn Door hardware must comply with the following:

a.Exposed system

b.Brushed Stainless finish

c.Concealed or decorative fasteners

d.Top mount door hangers

e.Adjustable bumper stops

f. Locking Hardware is not required.

3.If the door faces the guestroom entry, a mirror must be in set in to the panel on the entry side of the door.
