Approach to the selection of thoroughly

Before turning to a serious test of the door leaf, make sure that it is made of polluting materialWithout toxicity. Best of all, if the main part of the structure will be made of solid wood or wood veneer.

Why such a material for interior doors is optimal?

To understand the answer to this question is quite familiar with its advantages, among which are:

  • natural origin. Wood products are completely safe, even for young children and allergy sufferers that fully satisfies the above-noted first request;
  • low thermal conductivity. Yes, the apartment is heated, and the front door with a heater, but, first, to separate the individual insulation room still does not hurt, and secondly, this figure is also a characteristic that the canvas will always be warm on touch;
  • high Attenuation. This is more than a visual advantage, thanks to which it is possible to shut down for rest in the bedroom, even during children's games in the living room;

  • A wide range of. It is appropriate to mention not only of the many varieties of wood, differing in cost, physical properties and appearance, but also on the amazing possibilities of timber processing, so the door leaf can be decorated with original art thread;
  • High resistance to mechanical stress. Damage to wooden doors is not easy. And even if, for example, pets managed to still leave them scratching, everything can be solved by re-varnishing.

In such qualities may be marked as a negative side as:

  • The relatively high price. Natural Veneer, and even more so the array does not differ cheapness. But because the purchase is carried on for many years, so that there is better not to be greedy;
  • Fear of dampness. In general it can not be ignored, since inside the apartment or dwelling house priori should be dry. Otherwise, will suffer not only doors, but also tenants.

So again with the material we have decided, now we move on to the selection of interior doors more scrupulously:

Test №1: quality control coating

Appearance of the door you can already tell a lot.

This is especially true of its cover:

  1. The presence of spotsAnd turbid or heterogeneous areas that make the door dirty color indicates that the applied tinting to conceal various defects, irregularities and gaps, which provided high-quality assembly be no must;
  2. Also pay attention to the presence of porosity, small tubercles, hairs and debris under the paint layer. For clarity, it is desirable to even hold his hand over this surface. Palm feels all the described drawbacks;

Spend a fingernail to cover an interior door. If it will be a scratch or even formed chips, keep in mind that this painting is not only a poor quality, but in general can be harmful to health.

Test №2: geometry inspection

To select high-quality door is also necessary to pay attention and its geometrical parameters, or rather two of the most basic aspects:

  1. Bring a tape measure to the store building. With its help with their own hands , measure and compare with each other the two diagonals of the door leaf. If the products are made using high-quality equipment in the manufacturing conditions, the difference between these values ​​will not exceed one millimeter. Samples also collected "on his knees" in sweatshops made measurements may vary, even a centimeter;

Test №3: check the quality of surface treatment

Doors must be smooth and pleasant to the touch. Spend it on hand. Pay special attention to the ends of the attention that they did not have any rough and uneven. Tactile sensations play a significant role in testing the quality of the door panels.

Test №4: check glass inserts

Very often, interior doors in order to enhance the aesthetic qualities of glasses equipped. But the insertion of the already fragile and foreign wood material is sufficiently weak spot in the door leaf, requiring special attention.

Here, "not to miss" with the choice you will the following statement:

  1. A little shake you liked the product. If the glass emits a rattling sound, it will signal about its weak fixing. In this case it is better to abandon the purchase;

If the surface has a matte dull or greasy spot, keep in mind you will not be able to bring it home. Such defects are removed only with a special factory equipment.

Test №5: check connections

Before choosing interior doors finally, be sure to consider the articulation of all its elements, in particular fillet. There should be no gaps, as well as any other irregularities or protruding edges.

shopping

How to choose the interior doors can be proposed from the current range of manufacturers?
