Modern Eco Interior Doors FAQ

What is a Veneer?

A veneer is a thin layer of wood that is applied to the surface of a door that gives it its smooth finish.

What is Eco Veneer?

Eco Veneer is a type of veneer that is able to look almost identical to natural wood, but is created in a man made process that allows it to be eco-friendly.

What types of locks can I put on my Eco Veneer Doors?

There are three different lock options: Passage, Privacy, and Key.

  • Passage has no lock, and cannot be locked on either side
  • Privacy has a lock on one side and cannot be opened from the other side
  • Key has a lock on one side, but can also be opened by a key (that comes with the door) from the other side

What are the benefits of a Magnetic Lock?

Magnetic locks are better than traditional locks because they are more discreet and easier to use. When you close a door with a magnetic lock, a magnet pulls the lock towards the frame automatically. Most high end, modern doors use this technology.

How are Concealed Hinges better than Traditional Hinges?

Concealed hinges as the name suggests, hides the hinges inside the slab and the frame of the door, allowing for sleek look that doesn’t distract from the door design.

The second benefit is the adjustability of the hinges. As the door may settle over time, or react to changes in humidity, the door may need adjustment to function optimally. In a normal door, this can be challenging and time consuming but with adjustable hinges, the issue can be resolved easily and quickly.
