Construction Marketplace Tuesday, January 21, 2020 3 0 Affordable Luxury: The NXR Range from Duro An interview with Stephan Halenbeek, Executive Vice President, Duro Corporation. CM: Tell our readers about Duro Corporation. SH: We are an American company from City of Industry, California, dedicated to delivering the finest quality professional style cooking appliances. Our parent company is a grill manufacturing giant, and we have continued that successful culture with the following mission: bringing to the average household that which was previously only available to the ultra-rich. Or as we like to say, 'affordable luxury.' CM: What does Duro sell? SH: Our flagship is the NXR Range, a beautiful professional-style range that has been reviewed to perform better than major brands at a fraction of the cost. We also launched new lines, including the NXR Culinary, NXR Pro, NXR LS and NXR Entrée. We also have a variety of stainless steel barbecue grills and tool chests, and we are in the works to introduce a line of NXR kitchen appliances. CM: What would you say makes Duro unique? SH: Even though we are an American company, our parts, such as our German burners, are sourced from all over the world and assembled in China in our own factories, and we have our own service center in California, making us a truly global com- pany. We are committed to excellence with our unbelievable price point. CM: What is 'affordable luxury'? SH: Luxury typically is associated with an extravagant lifestyle, and for kitchens, that means professional style appliances that are out of reach for most families. We believe in products that exude luxury in both form and function. CM: What are you doing this year differ- ently from what you did last year? SH: We have worked hard on development and establishing ourselves as a brand. Of course, this is something that we will continue to do, but we are continuing to expand, in terms of both our line of prod- ucts and our distribution and reach to customers. It truly is an exciting time as we explore our potential and continuous- ly strive to be better day after day. CM: Where can customers find an NXR Range? SH: We currently sell through Almo across the U.S. as well as big box compa- nies such as Costco, Sam's Club, Lowe's and Home Depot.

CM: Is Forever Barnwood prefinished? JB: Just like other Forever Barnwood products, the millwork is 'aged' using the same proprietary processes. Remember, there is no stain used to produce Forever Barnwood products. This is a 'living finish,' so you can cut it, sand it and reapply Secret Sauce to blend and cover to create a beautiful finished product. CM: Can a clear protective coat be put on my Forever Barnwood millwork? JB: Yes, the Forever Barnwood 'aging process' allows the subsequent applica- tion of an oil or water-based protective coating. The Forever Barnwood 'aging process' does leave a resin in and on the wood, which does provide a not so insignificant protective attribute. CM: Is this millwork any different than millwork that users are used to working with? JB: No. You will find the sizes and pro- files of Forever Barnwood millwork and doors to be consistent with industry stan- dards. This product is as easy to work with as any millwork product that you have ever worked with. CM: Do the Forever Barnwood Rustic Doors come with hard- ware? JB: The doors do come with hinges (3-1/2" 5/8" radius hinges). The hinges are mortised into the slab and door jamb. They come in two colors (Satin Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze). The double doors also come with ball & catch hardware in the same colors. Forever Barnwood does not offer a handset line at this time. CM: How will doors come to the job site? JB: Your doors will come KD. That means that the jambs will be broken down and ready to assemble. Doors can also be purchased as a slab only. You can mix the rustic Forever Barnwood door with other types/color of millwork. These doors in the Traditional 100-Year- Old finish matched with white jambs and casing is breathtaking. CM: What door styles are available? JB: The doors are available in any style, meaning that over the backdrop of verti- cal panels, any overlay design can be applied. For example, 3-panel, 5-panel, 6-panel, K style, X style, etc. For more information, go to www.forever barnwood.com, email info@forever barnwood.com or call 844.231.3777.
