The specification of material used internally to make up the body of the door.
Each core has varying properties and is tested in various ways depending on where the door will be placed and the requirements it must meet.
When we refer to our “door finishes” we are referring to the visible surface of the door. We offer a range of different door finishing options including Real Wood Veneers, Laminates and Paint Grade.
Materials described as ‘intumescent’ have the additional property that, upon reaching a certain temperature they expand dramatically. The intumescent seal/ strip works by sealing around the edges of a doorway to prevent exposure to elements.
Specifying what the edges of the door are covered or not covered with, normally edges will be covered on each side of the door (the width) as the cores will show upon opening.
Covering these sides is typically called ‘C2LE’ concealed 2 long edges.
All sides being covered would be called CL4E. made of internally.
A Veneer is a thin decorative covering of fine wood applied to a coarser wood or other material. Veneers can be constructed in either hardwood or softwood in a range of wood species.
