Fortress Coating Systems

Fortress Coating Systems™ is the brand name for Cleary and Wholesale Doors’ premier finishing. Utilizing premium coatings from industry leading suppliers including Sherwin Williams, our prime, clear, stained or painted finishes provide optimum appearance and durability. We prefinish wood and fiberglass doors. We also prime mouldings, treads and other stair parts.

Cleary & Wholesale Doors have two finishing lines; our automated finishing line in Watertown, MA is focused on providing clear and stained finishes for commercial flush doors. Somerset, MA handles all other finishing on our automated spray line or in our state-of-the-art clean room spray facility.

Custom Capabilities

We’re more than just a distributor. We manufacture some of the finest millwork in the Northeast. Our custom capabilities are far superior to any other New England supplier in preassembled stairs and stairparts, custom windows and doors, commercial hollow metal and contract hardware. Our prehanging and shop capabilities allow us to “customize” stock products with options that our customers want.
