Ready Made Doors

They are used for access between rooms and are closed for privacy. These doors consist of two parts - frame and shutter. Readymade doors are available in various shapes, designs and materials like wood, iron, PVC or plastic and aluminum in the market. Several manufacturing units in India fabricate door shutters according to ISI specifications. This article tells you about various types of readymade doors in detail. 

 

Wooden Doors

Wooden doors are used in our homes traditionally. They are attractive, durable and provide safety to homes. These doors are easy to make and are preferred for their carved designs. Easy availability of timber, less cost and attractive look make them superior to other doors. Wooden doors are available in following four categories in the market.

a) Flush Doors
b) Paneled Doors
c) Glazed Doors
d) Wire Gauge Doors 

a) Flush Doors

These doors are becoming popular for their nice look, less cost and better strength than paneled doors. Flush doors are easy to make and undergo little expansion or contraction with the changes in weather. These doors are available in thickness of 25 mm, 30mm, and 35mm. The width and height of flush door shutter should be according to drawing. All four edges of a shutter should be square. The shutter is free from twist or wrap and the moisture contents in timbers used for manufacturing of flush door shutters should not exceed 12% when tested according to IS:

Vertical members are called as stile whereas horizontal members are called rail i.e. top rail, middle or lock rail, and bottom rail etc. The door may have two to ten panels according to drawing or architectural requirements. The panels are made of timber, plywood, block board, veneered particle board, fiber board etc. All members of shutters should be straight without any wrap bow and should have smooth well planed face at right angles to each other.

Using mortise and tenon joints, stiles and rails should be jointed. The contact surfaces of joints should be treated with bulk type synthetic resin adhesive confirming to IS: 848 and pinned with 10 mm dia. hard wood dowels or bamboo pins. The thickness of door shutters varies from 25 mm to 40 mm. The various sizes of different parts used in panel shutter are following.
 

  • Lock rail or middle rail -150 mm
  • Bottom rail - 200 mm
  • Muntin - 100 mm
  • Panel - 12 mm

Paneled door shutters are manufactured by machine complying with the sizes mentioned above in wooden door and window factory. For machine made shutters, suitable machines do operations like sawing, planning, making joints, drilling holes and pressing of joints.

c) Glazed Doors

Glazed doors are made from wooden stiles ands rails having glass panels according to the requirement. These doors are provided in shops, departmental stores, hotels and commercial establishments etc. to attract customers. Glazed doors offer a sense of security as a barrier. In official and residential buildings, glazed doors prevent unwanted intrusions and provide architectural beauty between formal and informal areas. Manufacturing process of glazed doors is almost same as manufacturing of paneled doors; the only difference is of glass panels used instead of wooden or ply panels. Nowadays frameless glazed doors with glass made of only tampered glass are used.

PVC or plastic doors

PVC or plastic doors are mostly used in toilets and remain unaffected from water and termite effects etc. They are available in wide range of colors and required sizes. PVC doors are anti corrosive, light weight and maintenance free. They are manufactured in plastic factories. Plastic doors are resistant to moisture and chemical but they can not resist harsh environment conditions like wooden or metal doors. These doors are not suitable for entry doors as they are combustible in nature, hence they should be saved from fire.
