What types of doors are made from solid core timber?
Solid core timber can be found in many household doors, and is one
of the most common material for hinged doors. Its sturdiness,
beauty and customisability all make this material a popular choice
for front and rear entrances, as well as for interior doors. The
wood may be painted, varnished or left bare, depending on the
purpose and style of the door. Solid core timber doors are
relatively easy to install too.
How are solid core timber doors constructed?
In some solid core doors, layers of various thicknesses and grades
of plywood are glued together and cut to size to form a core for
two sheets of the chosen wood, which are glued over the top with
the edges finished in a matching wood.
In others, the core consists of solid particleboard over which the
wood veneer is placed. Others still contain a core of solid pine,
which is first laminated and then veneered.
How do solid core timber doors perform?
- Security – These doors are difficult to kick down, though the type of core
that the door uses plays a large role in their strength.
- Weatherproofing – Solid core timber doors are able to be used externally, though
they must be weatherproofed to prevent the wood from expanding.
- Soundproofing – This varies based on the core used, but wooden doors will
generally carry quite a lot of sound no matter what sort of core is
- Cost – Wood is relatively inexpensive in comparison to other materials
due to its popularity and abundance (it grows on trees, after all).
- Weight – Solid core timber doors don’t weigh a great deal, though again
this depends a lot on the core filling.
- Thermal insulation – Wood is quite an effective insulator and will not translate heat
or cold easily. It is flammable though.
Hollow core doors are lighter. This is because the interior core of
thedoor is hollow, sometimes made of a honeycomb material. ...
Because these doorsrequire less material and workmanship the cost
of these doors will be less expensive than a solid-core door.
