As we begin to feel a little nostalgic here at Global we challenged the team to have a little fun and come up with traditional scenes from famous movie that could be given a “global makeover”

Todays is Casablanca

Composite Doors in the North – the North of Africa that is


Global Door at the movies No 1 in a series of six


Casablanca a classic starring a Global door and others


Picture the scene – Ricks Bar –Casablanca – the love of Rick Blain’s life Ilsa Lund has just left having cajoled  Sam the piano player into playing  a haunting rendition of the Classic “As time goes by”, a song that awakened deep memories in Rick, Ilsa and Sam’s past.


Enter Rick to speak the immortal line

“Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine”

Shortly afterwards he turns to Sam saying –

“You played it for her, you can play it for me”

 Pan camera left to the Bar entry and the majestic new Global Victorian pattern door Rick has had recently had installed, a door which Sam cannot take his eyes off, he is enthralled, so much so that he forgets the original words and launches in his admiration of Global door into the following version. (with apologies to Herman Hupfield the original composer back in 1931) soon to be used in our forthcoming TV commercial

 “You must remember this                  

A Global door exists

To keep you warm and dry
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by

Be it red or green or blue

Solidly constructed through and through
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by

Victorian & Georgian – never out of date

Colours full of passion- guarantees first rate

Delivered by van – with installation never late
That no one can deny

At Global door we know the story

Check our doors in all their glory

Decide which you wish to buy

For we will always welcome customers
As time goes by

Rick hangs his head in despair

Scene changes to outside of the Bar where Ilsa is standing in the shadows wiping a tear from her eye “Sam that’s beautiful” she says to no-one in particular, “that has to be the best looking door on any bar in Casablanca.” she continues.

Quietly she turns and starts to walk away – camera zooms out as Ilsa can just be heard muttering, “thank goodness all Global doors are of the highest calibre manufactured to rigorous quality controlled standards and comprise-

  • a reinforced hardwood frame
  • a solid thermally insulated polyurethane foam core slab
  • a 2mm thick durable GRP through coloured skin to prevent warp, twist bow etc
  • a thickness of 44mm which adds to the strength and creates a strong secure door.

and most importantly wonderful sound deadening qualities, Sam used to be such a wonderful singer but time has certainly not been kind to his voice.”

The camera pulls away and the shot fades into darkness casting the last rays of light on the majestic Global Victorian door, as it makes its final appearance in the film.
