Vinyl, vacuum pressed into face mouldings and edges,
This is a type of door that is manufactured by bonding a sheet of special Thermafoil Vinyl onto all its facing surfaces. We vacuum press this special Vinyl into face mouldings, and wrap it over all the edges to make a continuous finish of the face and edges with also provides a moisture resistant seal.
The core material of our doors and panels are 18mm thick, we use moisture resistant board that is pre-stressed medium density fibreboard and this being a material that is well suited to decorative machining. The back faces of these doors and panels can have either a white, or a matching colour / patterned to the face Vinyl, where this produces a resilient, easy to clean panel.
This thermafoil vinyl material is available in a range of decorative Solid Colours, Patterns, Life-like Woodgrains, and there are some Metallic look styles. There is also a variety of finishes to these, such as a High Gloss, a Matt, a Woodgrain Tick, and there is a fine Textured finish.
The Textured finish here clearly performs the best for wear, with the Matt and Gloss requiring a little more care to be taken. The Matt can develop shiny sections on the surface over time due to excess wear, whereas the Gloss and the Matt clearly show up any scratches.
