Oak and oak woods have from times immemorial enriched stories, realities, forests, homes, and home interiors. Oak wood is hardy, with a high level of insect and fungi-resisting ability, and high tannin content. The bark of different varieties of oak is used variously in making furniture, wine barrels, cork, and oak interior doors.
Besides its strength, and resistance to sundry wood borer insects, oak has got rich and beautiful grain markings that make it aesthetically appealing to users. This aesthetic appeal is what makes oak interior doors the popular choice of lots of people. To get vivid grain markings, oak has to be sawn in a direction at right angles, or vertical, to the direction of the tree's growth rings. Any wood thus sawn is known as quarter-sawn wood. Oak wood thus sawn will have intricate grain markings and a rich finish and this is what makes oak most suited for oak interior doors.
Steel doors are made to a building's specifications, with many factors measured for an exact fit for crime prevention. Openings for the locks are expertly engineered with no room for error. The metal framework fits perfectly to eliminate any space in which to slide the slimmest tool or crowbars. Installers take special measures to ensure the heavy doors are hung with perfect balance and all hardware is flush with surrounding surfaces. The installation can require 5 hours and including manufacture and delivery the entire process can take several weeks, but the steel security door can last forever. It can't rot, warp or otherwise change shape, thus eliminating a potentially dangerous situation!
For one thing, it's extremely strong making it ideal for use in items such as doors which get a few knocks during their lifetime. GRP doors will not warp, distort or peel and, unlike wooden doors, are impervious to termites and other pests.
Aluminum skin composite doors are another common variety and are widely used in garages, shops or factories. These doors are very strong and are invincible, in the literal sense of the term. Aluminum composite doors are also used for main entrance in different types of office and hotels. They have glass panels in the middle supported by a strong aluminum frame. The double layers are useful for offices and factories as they are durable and sound proof. They are composed of two layers the first layer is that of aluminum and the second layer is made up of polyurethane foam. A triple layer aluminum composite door is not only durable but also very strong. The first layer is made up of galvanized aluminum the second layer is made up of polyurethane foam and there is another layer of galvanized aluminum.
