Solid core doors are prestigious and expensive. Made entirely from high-quality wood, solid wood products are dense, durable and better bear the mechanical loads. Among their effective benefits are:
• reliability and long-lasting durability;
• resistance to temperature changes;
• environmental friendliness;
• high levels of heat insulation;
• good sound insulation;
• attractive decorative characteristics.
Solid wood doors have all the qualities necessary for efficient and long-lasting service. However, remember that they are heavy due to the density of the wood itself. Heavy door leaf increases the load on the hinges and can cause discomfort when used by older people or children.
Now we would recommend one type of Birch veneered solid core door for interior used.
Veneers are thin slices of wood (Usually thinner than 1mm). Decorative veneers are typically glued onto core panels ( Typical Plywood) to produce flat panels used in door, wall panels, tops & panels etc. Decorative veneers are obtained by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood known as flitches.
There are probably as many types of Birch in the world as carter has pills. The three types of Birch that are perhaps used the most for domestic production would be Yellow Birch, Sweet Birch and Paper Birch. Paper Birch most likely providing the most decorative appearances of the three.
