The interior of the Home Depot container door that cracked last week is a testament to the durability of the material used to make it.
The company said Friday that the doors will be repaired at no charge.
“This is an important milestone for our company and we are proud of the progress we’ve made to address this issue,” Home Depot spokeswoman Melissa Seddon said in a statement.
“As always, we take the safety of our customers and associates very seriously.”
The door is a key piece of the company’s “concrete” brand, and has been used in commercial and industrial spaces for more than a decade.
A Home Depot spokesman said Friday the company will not be able to guarantee the doors are secure enough for use as a standard fixture.
The Home Depot containers are not designed to hold a lot of weight, so the company is adding steel brackets to hold the door in place.
A home depot employee said the doors can be difficult to install, because the company uses custom-built brackets that are only available at the Home Depots site.
