In this article, we will learn about the types of wooden doors, and the most important types of wooden laminated doors. Laminated doors are wooden doors that are easy to manufacture, and are characterized by many different shapes, and they have spread due to their distinctive quality and competitive price.
Before we learn about laminated (melamine) doors and their types, let’s learn about melamine material, its properties and uses.
It is a multi-use organic chemical compound, used in doors, floors, and decorations. The word melamine comes from the German word Mela (a derivative of aluminum distillation) and mine (one of the structural bases of protein).
As we mentioned, melamine has many uses, and its uses were varied after mixing it with some materials to produce strong materials. When it is combined with formalin, it comes out a high-temperature resistant material.
This material is used in plastics of the type Formica, which is a heat-resistant material and is used in the wooden outer layers of furniture, and the material is also used in Wooden floors and educational blackboards.
Melamine is used in military concrete as it gives it high resistance, and it has many other uses such as (papermaking, textile industry, fertilizer industry, household utensils and decorations).

Melamine doors can be made in different thicknesses upon request, and the thickness is determined by the factory, and the color of the wood veneer varies according to the type of wood used in the door filling.
Wooden door cores
When manufacturing the door and after selecting the two outer layers of the door, the inner core is chosen, which gives the door its required weight and durability. There are three main types of door cores:
- Half cell
These cores are manufactured using paperboard or fiberboard, and are an ideal alternative to solid doors, as they are of high quality, have high thermal insulation and are light in weight.
- Tubular shape
This type is characterized by high lightness, as it is lighter than solid panels by 60%, it maintains quality, but with a lighter weight, and is used in doors with thin surfaces.
- Half solid
This type of core is made of original wood, and it is an economical alternative to hollow and solid doors. The design of this type of wood is easy and it is easy to open a window or an opening through these doors, and it is characterized by high security.
In the end, when choosing any door, the place used, the quality and the cost must be taken into consideration. The factors affecting the place where the door is to be placed must be studied, and this helps in choosing the type of door based on its resistance to these factors.
