For this reason, trusted brands such as Mikasa Doors and Frames offer premium quality laminated doors that promise unmatched durability and a classic appeal. Mikasa doors are available in a wide range of design options allowing you to choose one that meets your style preference. In this blog post, we explore available core options in Mikasa’s engineered door set collection. Read on!
Door Leaf Core
The door leaf core offers a perfect combination of stability and strength as it is pre-tested for the fabrication of fire as well as non-fire-rated Doors. Door leaf core undergoes multiple durability tests concerning Soft & Heavy Body impact, Static Torsion, Slamming Shut & Open, Resistance to Jarring & Vibration, Closure Against Obstructions, and Operating Forces & Cycling. They are also available in thicknesses ranging 32mm, 35mm,38mm,44mm,54mm, and 64mm depending on your requirements. There are two Core options for Door Leafs:
Solid Particle Core:
Solid particle core is a premium-quality solid core filler that is made up of high-performance Triple Layer Density Particle Board. The boards are imported from Germany and have two core layers of wood chips that are high in density.
Tubular core is made up of a high quality tubular core that comes with LVL rail and stile, which provides intense stability to the door leaf.
Mikasa offers frames with various core options that are suitable for both fire and non-fire rated applications. When it comes to fire doors, Mikasa offers frames made of high-density hardwood. The doors also come with intumescent strips that are rebated onto all three sides of the door frame and expand to seal the gap between the frame and door containing or preventing the spread of smoke and fire. There are two options available under frame core.
Rebated frames are made from solid hardwood and are available in Steam Beech species
Engineered frames are made with a 15 mm thick door stopper that is made from matching material. It covers the head of anchor bolts. Some of the options available in engineered frames are:
