Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what a door would look like on a home. Plastpro has taken away the guess work and created an advanced version of their Doorability tool.
Doorability is Plastpro’s personal visualizer that helps users make decisions by allowing them to see how a Plastpro fiberglass door will look on their home. It provides users with a variety of options to create an entry that is uniquely theirs.
The tool was improved to increase user experience, and it features a new design with a smoother flow. It was also built with mobile standards. Users now do not have to use the tool in landscape mode because it looks and works great on mobile.
Users can create an account to save their project. They can create as many projects as they like and have the option to go back and edit them instead of starting again from scratch. Those projects can be easily shared with others on many social media platforms.
The tool is straightforward to use and requires minimum set up. There are two options when starting a project. Users can either upload a photo of their home or use inspirational sample projects that Plastpro provides. From there, they configure a single door in a standard, arch, or radius top to match the shape of their door in the image. They will also be asked to choose the height and width of their door.
One of the new features in the configuration gives users the option to zoom in on the pinpoint locator. This allows for more accurate results in how the door fits into the frame.
The tool automatically filters results based on the initial configuration and dimensions that were chosen. It will never show doors that don’t fit based on the opening that was selected.
After the configuration has been finalized, users pick the door series they want. Users can view all eight grains in the standard series: Cherry, Knotty Alder, Teak, Mahogany, Fir, Oak, Smooth, and True White Oak. As well as the specialty series: Fire Rated, Trimmable, HVHZ Impact, and Residential ADA.
From there, users can pick the exact styles they like as well as the stain colors. The stain colors shown are those offered in Plastpros Pre-Finished Stain Kit. Colors are digitally generated and are for visualization purposes only.
At the end, they will receive a summary of the options they have chosen. Users have the option to save and download the summary as a PDF, so it is easy for them to order their door in the future. Doorability is currently in its beta phase, and not all features have been launched. In the future, Plastpro plans to include decorative glass, sidelites, accessories, hardware for visual purposes, and Polyfiber (PF) Frames. They will also be launching more configurations to include double doors and sidelites.
