Interior Door Options – Refresher Course
We sell hundreds of interior doors each day, so it’s easy to take our basic knowledge for granted and forget that not everyone thinks about the differences between stile & rail doors and flush & molded doors. Here is a quick crash course on what you should consider when choosing interior doors for your next new construction or remodel project.
Interior Stile & Rail Door Construction
For customers seeking a classic look, authentic stile and rail doors offer a level of detail and definition that cannot be matched. Stile and rail construction is architecturally correct and provides crisp shadow lines and highly defined panel details. Staining an interior wood door protects and enhances the natural beauty of real wood. Any door can be painted, however REEB stocks primed Stile and Rail doors that are specifically designed to take that one step out of your finishing process should you require.
Here’s a quick review of what we are looking at above that make up the quality construction of a Stile & Rail Door from REEB, Kuiken Brothers millwork partner of choice:
- Stile: The stiles have a solid engineered core for added strength and stability
- Rail: The rails are also made of solid engineered core
- Panel/Glass: Panels can be wood to create a solid door, or replaced with glass to create a French door
- Dowel Pins: Dowel pins are used to join the stiles and rails together
- Veneer: A veneer is added over the core to create a smooth staining or painting surface
Molded Door Construction (Solid Particle, Hollow Core, Mineral Core)
Solid Particle Core molded doors are used in a variety of residential and light-commercial interior applications. The advantages of solid particle core construction are added security and reduced sound transmission while the heavier weight and feel is similar to a wood stile and rail. There are a number of smooth or textured surface options in stock.
As you can see in the above cross-section, the Solid Particle Core door face features a 1/8″ molded hardboard skin available in a smooth or textured painting surface, plus, the solid particle board core is specifically routed to match the molded skin design, increasing rigidity. These doors are available in 1-3/8″ and 1-3/4″ thickness and heights ranging from 6/8, 7/0 & 8/0.
Hollow Core Door Construction
Hollow core doors are commonly used in residential applications where sound transmission and durability are not the primary concern. They are a lighter-weight, economic alternative to wood stile and rail interior doors. The standard offering includes wood stiles for added screw holding power and easy size reductions in the field. MDF and Fiber stiles are also available per request, although we encourage you to discuss some potential installation consequences with our millwork experts should you decide to go that route.
Similar to the Solid Particle Core, the Hollow Core Door face comes in a 1/8″ molded hardboard, smooth or textured painting surface. The foam blocking provides the support for the door faces and the thickness is limited to 1-3/8″ only.
Solid Mineral Core Door Construction
Solid Mineral Core Doors are commonly used in application that require up to a 60-minute fire raiting like house-to-garage entryways and light-commercial buildings. They have the weight and feel of a wood door and reduce sound transmission. They are manufactured with a special fire-resistant core and Firestop material allowing a fire rating of up to 60 minutes with certified frames and hardware.
Solid Mineral Core molded doors are a popular choice for up to 60 minute fire-rated applications. As you can see, the face is a 1/8″ molded hardboard skin available in smooth or textured painting surface with a mineral core manufactured for up to 60 minute fire label requirements, routed to accept molded skins. It is only available in 1-3/4″ and heights of 6/8 & 7/0.
As you can see, the options can be a little overwhelming, and that is why the Millwork experts at Kuiken Brothers are here to help. Our team is extremely knowledgeable in understanding the application and providing the appropriate solution to meet your needs, whether it be budget, a specific look, or simply a deadline requirement.
