Specializing in commercial applications, Frameworks serves a variety of businesses and industries. With its durability and versatility, aluminum is the preferred choice for many industries. Below are 3 popular commercial applications for aluminum framing systems:


Ambiance is important in schools and classrooms. For students to get the most of their education, their environment should feel welcoming and bright. Administration offices should feel accessible and inviting. 

Our SlimLine series is a popular solution among schools and colleges. Ideal for glass partitions, this office front system has minimal profiles for maximum office space and lighting. These frames not only accommodate swinging and sliding doors, but noise-reducing wood doors as well.


In healthcare, privacy and functionality are of the utmost importance. With high volume traffic and medical emergencies, healthcare professionals must prioritize patient privacy and quick response time. 

Hospitals prefer aluminum framing systems that provide sound control without inhibiting traffic flow. An obvious choice for healthcare applications would be the STC-35 system. Acoustically tested, this system consists of Frameworks Type II aluminum frames paired with STC-rated wood doors from Graham and Maiman. Barn sliders are another option for hospitals, as they glide smoothly across top hung surface mounted tracks for a quiet and smooth operation.


In the hospitality industry, appearances are everything. Hotels that are modern, clean, and exude professionalism are more likely to attract customers looking for a comfortable place to rest their head. Furthermore, hotels in tourist locations must be able to accommodate high volume traffic during peak hours.

For a sleek look that accommodates swinging or sliding doors, our Type II frames are the perfect solution. Our Type II door frames, sidelites, and borrowed lite window frames come in a variety of wall sizes, including 3 ½”, 3 ¾”, 4 ⅝”, 4 ⅞”, 5 ¼”, 5 ½”, and 7 ¼”.
