Budget interior doors, unlike expensive analogues, are available to customers and occupy a large segment of the market. What are the advantages of cheap designs?
Price reduction is achieved through conveyor manufacturing (there is no talk of manual processing) and the use of simple, affordable wood (usually coniferous), as well as artificial materials. Both factors cause only a reduction in the cost of production, without affecting the quality and durability of products – according to these criteria, economy doors are not inferior to premium-class models. They are also beautiful in appearance, resistant to mechanical damage and temperature changes, undemanding to care for.
In addition to coniferous wood, high-tech, safe and reliable materials are used for economy segment doors:
- dried LVL timber;
- MDF boards;
- PVC film, eco-veneer,
Such doors, subject to the production technology and operating rules, will last for more than one year and fully pay off their low price.
Inexpensive doors: finishing options
Cheap European Doors: A worthy solution for homes, offices, and corporate institutions. Slab- coniferous strapping; hardboard honeycomb filler and facade made of MDF. The color is gray or white, but usually the factory paint is just a primer that requires a top coat. When ordering a door from the manufacturer, you can choose any color according to the RAL color scale, which will increase the cost of the product by about 15%.
In addition to affordability, the advantages of the European doors include lightness, which is important when hanging them on light partitions. The disadvantage is the rapid wear of the array in the corners, but if handled correctly, they serve for quite a long time, without losing their decorative effect.
Cheap Laminated Doors: They are similar in design to European ones, but the surface is pasted over with a special film that imitates any texture, from wood to stones and metal. When choosing these doors, it is the outer coating that should be the object of increased attention. Depending on the basis – paper or fiberglass – they have different qualities. Films containing polymers are more resistant to wear, high temperatures, water, light, most acids and alkalis.
The advantages of these models are the availability of imitation of various textures and lightness. The disadvantage is the same as that of the European models – the fragility of the film and slabs at the corners and at the joints.
Cheap conifer interior doors: These doors combine all the benefits of high-quality solid wood products. They are beautiful, reliable and durable. A minor flaw can be considered a non-aristocratic, simple look, but in country interiors (country, Provence) they will be in their place. In addition, the door can be ennobled, for example, by “aging”, but this will require additional costs. To make an inexpensive door last longer – do not save on installation. Ignorance and non-compliance with technology can spoil the goods. Trust installation to professionals. Experts of the doors showroom “Doors & More” in New Jersey and New York.
