Strongdor launch BrightDor – Innovative colour changing door technology

Strongdor are delighted to announce the launch of BrightDor, an App that enables you to instantly change the colour of your steel door at the push of a button. Following 3 years of nano film technology research in partnership with Professor Alex Stride, this new technology will revolutionise how people buy steel doors.  

A unique coating is applied to the surface of the door, covered with light reflecting nano particles that have the ability to change the colour of the door. Using the BrightDor App customers can select a colour from a full colour chart in the app, which in turn connects to the particles on the surface of the door to instantly change the way the light is reflected and colour is perceived through the eyes.

Tim Devenish, MD explains; “At Strongdor we always strive to innovate and deliver the best products for our customers. Launching BrightDor is a huge step for us as a business and gives customers access to the latest cutting edge technology of colour transformation.”

Strongdor are industry leading manufacturers of steel doors, based at their 44,500 Sq Ft factory in Lancashire. Following their tagline of making doors that are Better, Faster and Stronger!
