HOW TO CHOOSE DOORS AND BATHROOM DOORS (part 3)

LMB
Staining is done with aqueous acrylic compounds. Mainly decorated veneered doors. The coating is opaque, the right color. For protection against moisture, preliminary priming and treatment with stains are carried out. The translucent coating serves as a reliable barrier to drops of water, condensate. Painted doors are suitable for installation in rooms with high humidity.

Natural wood is usually hidden under enamel. The coating, like a thin sarcophagus, protects the models from the array from negative environmental factors, including sharp, piercing objects, animal claws, bumps and water. Apply enamel in a special chamber. The process is long and laborious. To give the enameled door decorative properties, painting, patination is used.

Moisture resistant and very fashionable glossy doors today. The procedure is carried out in several stages. Each application alternates with thorough grinding.

Conclusion: water sharpens a stone, and it is many times stronger than wood. Only people from the tropics, such as cucia, ipe, kumara, etc., are not susceptible to the negative effects of moisture. There is no need to overpay for exotics, because “native” breeds or their inexpensive substitutes are suitable for installation in the bathroom, provided that the material is well dried, passed deep processing, manufactured according to the “correct” technology and protected by an appropriate composition or coating. An exception may be only laminated doors at a price of up to 2-3 thousand rubles.

BATHROOM DOOR AND WOOD GRADE – WHICH OPTIMAL RELATIONSHIP
Each tree variety reacts in its own way to frequent changes in temperature, humidity in the environment. The more stable the breed, the more durable it is, and therefore more expensive. Most door manufactures in Russia are tied to five domestic breeds:

oak;
ash tree;
beech;
alder;
pine tree.
How appropriate is it to install a door to the bathroom from the listed types of wood?

OAK
The wood is solid, heavy, strong, resilient and durable, therefore expensive. Practically does not create shrinkage, absorbs coloring compounds well.

Scopes of application – construction of houses, baths, entrance doors, stairs, floor coverings, construction of bridges, hydraulic structures, etc.

Doors to the oak bathroom? – Yes.

ASH
Technical properties – high hardness, elasticity, abrasion and bending strength, high weight and viscosity. The minimum shrinkage, the service life of the product, subject to preventive measures, is 20-30 years.

It is not recommended to take in the manufacture of entrance doors, structures for installation in open areas. The material is easily weather resistant and quickly rots when affected by fungi.

It absorbs stains, paints, polishes. Areas of application – ceilings, walls, stairs, flooring.

Doors in the ash door? – Yes.

BEECH
Advantages – hardness, toughness, strength, ductility for processing stains, impregnations. The steamed material bends easily, but with an increase in humidity it quickly cracks and deforms.

Scopes of application: production of stairs, parquet, timber, plywood, fiber-chip materials.

Doors to the bathroom made of beech? – Rather, no, or only with very careful processing.

ALDER
Compared with pine, it has a high density, hygroscopicity. For protection, thorough deep processing with waxes, primers, enamels and varnish is used. Suitable for facing walls, ceilings in bathrooms. It does not heat up much, prevents burns, therefore it is suitable for surface finishing in baths and saunas.

It has a beautiful appearance, luxurious cognac color and aroma.

Doors to the alder bathroom? – Yes, but when using dense protective compositions and several levels of processing with soil, enamel, varnish.

PINE
Easy to process. It contains many resins, which increases the service life of the tree itself and its products. It is important to carry out a thorough treatment with impregnations, otherwise susceptibility to a negative environment will be reflected in a change in properties and color – the wood will acquire a bluish tint.

Scopes of application: windows, doors, masts, ladders, floor coverings, etc.

Doors to the pine bathroom? – Yes, with high-quality impregnation.

Note!
Doors from the array, we recommend buying only from trusted suppliers, preferably reading reviews on these products. In any case, wood is a whimsical material, and the manufacturer must accumulate certain experience, which will be discussed by positive recommendations.

You can get acquainted with the reviews, see photos and prices in the catalog of doors from the array of the In-House online store.
