When it comes to choosing materials for door applications, there is no shortage of options. But only Formica® Laminate offers a powerful mix of performance, endurance, hygiene and long-term value. That combination of benefits is why Formica® High Pressure Laminates (HPL) are so well regarded across the design and construction industries.
Nina Bailey, European Design Lead at Formica Group, says: “Doors are not only functional fixtures to close off spaces – they are a key part of the overall interior design and can often be the finishing touch to creating a crisp and refined look.“
When you choose Formica laminates for your door applications, you enjoy:
- Impressive toughness. All Formica laminates are highly resistant to stains, impact and scratches – making them ideal for busy areas or high-touch surfaces such as doors or work areas.
- Long-lasting performance and beauty.
Formica laminates can be installed with the confidence that they will maintain their quality and aesthetic appeal for many years to come. Their durability is a key attraction for many architects and designers operating in public and private spaces, with a long service offering better life-cycle value than lower-cost alternatives. Formica door laminates are pre-finished, so there is no need for future surface treatments.
- Inherent hygiene.
All Formica laminates are inert, so they don’t promote bacterial growth. You don’t have to worry about specialist cleaning materials – warm, soapy water is all you need to keep your laminates in perfect condition.
- Moisture resistance.
The surface of our laminates are non porous, meaning a well fabricated door with sealed edges can be used in washroom and changing room settings, without fear of imminent damage or degradation.
- Cost-effective production and easy fabrication.
Formica laminates are lightweight and easy to cut to size. To ensure optimized door design and to provide maximum efficiencies in conversion, saving time and reducing material wastage, in addition to standard sheet size (3050x1300mm), there are laminates available in door sizes.
- Natural product textures.
State-of-the-art textures can be incorporated into the laminate manufacturing process, instantly changing the look and feel of the final product. Linewood, Puregrain and Naturelle are favoured surfaces for wood decors while Matte58 is a timeless classic for colours and woods.
- Extensive aesthetic choices.
Formica laminates have a great range od different decors and sheet-to-sheet consistency minimizes the risk of non-matching doors across an installation.
