PuraDorInternal Solid Core Doorsets
The benefits that having doors pre-hung in frames with relevant hardware morticing works carried out in the factory is increasingly seen as the obvious solution to the demands on contractors. This reduces the labour force required on site, the level of skill required to install, the management resources required to oversee and the installation time required on site. This all helps in projects where programmes are tight and excellence of carpentry works is borne by CNC machinery in the factory which take the onus of responsibility from site level to production level.
Servicing items available:
- Hinges- all types including concealed Tectus and Soss hinges
- Floor springs and pivot accessories
- Concealed jamb and overhead door closers
- Flush bolts
- Mortice locks, latches, and card access control lockcases
- Multipoint security entrance door locks, letter plates and door viewers
- Sliding door recesses, flush handle recesses
- Fire and acoustic integrity seals.
Doors can be delivered in their frames for simple quick installation or as often required, frames can be delivered ahead of doors so surrounding trades can continue, doors are delivered later and fixed into the prepared frames reducing the risk of damage to doors by arriving late on in the project.
The balance of ironmongery where not installed to the doors is packed according to schedules in doorsets boxes , labelled and delivered to site for easy access and installation by the carpentry team.
PuraDor cores are a 3 layer particle board designed for the fabrication of interior solid core doors. They consist of a core of long grain wood chip to give its screw holding properties and two deck layers of high density fine wood chips suitable for finishing with Veneer, High Pressure laminate, PVC, or Paint.
To cover and protect the door core material, edges are applied with a hardwood lipping, which is usually 7mm thick.
There are two main types of lipping’s known as concealed or exposed:
‘Concealed’ – The more general detail in edge lipping doors. The door core is cut and the lipping is fixed by high pressure bonding. The door facings are then applied concealing the edges of lipping’s
‘Exposed’ –This option is often used where corners of doors maybe subjected to more impact and therefore chances of damage are reduced or where an alternative finish can be used to create a visual contrast.
