After years of strong sales, Rigid Thermal Foil (RTF) products have seen a sales slump for Conestoga. These products had their heyday in the 90s when inexpensive, plastic wrapped doors were a way for customers to get painted or wood grain looks on doors at a tremendous discount compared to real wood. Sales of RTF have waned substantially for Conestoga in recent years as they have focused on becoming a ‘premium’ component manufacturer while others, such as Northern Contours and Decorative Wood Specialties have focused on this lower level market and become highly proficient at making and selling inexpensive/price point oriented RTF doors and components.

This in mind, Conestoga is dropping their RTF offering in 2015 and eliminating their foil press equipment to make room for more oft-used MDF and solid wood door manufacturing equipment. Effective immediately, RTF products are not longer available through Conestoga. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions on this product discontinuation.
