There are a near-unlimited amount of finish options for your future doorsets, below are just a handful of the finishes we offer.
Veneer finishes are most commonly found in high-end accommodation and commercial offices. Sought after due to the expensive-looking finish they deliver, when used properly can elevate the status of a building's spaces.
Veneer is also great for longevity, as it is fairly resistant to marks and scratches. For this reason many schools specify veneer finishes on their doors to combat wear and tear over time.
Laminate finishes are primarily used in areas requiring high levels of maintenance and cleaning. Hospitals and schools frequently specify laminate due to its hygienic properties. It is also very commonly used in student accommodation due to its resistance to heat, impact, wear and staining.
Another form of laminate, timber veneers, is mostly used in offices but only in decorative form, where aesthetic patterns are desired.
Factory Painted Doorsets
Whilst factory paint is the softest and most easily damaged of all the finishes, it does offer ease of customisation in the future: through re-painting.
The popularity of paint is on the rise again, being used in many high-end offices and schools. However, for site's where heavy wear and tear is likely, factory painted finishes aren't recommended.
Factory painting is requested most frequently because it removes a trade on-site, speeding up project timelines and providing a better quality initial finish.
Impact Vinyl Doorsets
Impact Vinyl finishes are an an alternative to laminate and veneers. Renowned for it's unlimited range of textured finishes and wild designs, it is commonly used within high-end residential or commercial buildings.
Due to its general robustness, many student accommodations choose to specify impact vinyl and its high customisability.
Dual Finish Doorsets
Dual Finish means combining one of more finishes to accomplish a desired aesthetic or secondary function, such as wayfinding.
For example, schools may specify the inside of their classroom doors to be wood-effect laminate, however, they may request the outside of the doors be coloured to denote specific teaching areas.
Another common use for dual finish doorsets is within hospitals, where it used for wayfinding.
