Someone rightly quoted that ‘The doors we open and close each day decides the lives we live’.
Doors are not just a doorway to your home. It is an opening into your life, in fact the first-step into your abode. They protect us and guard us from the ugly world outside.
In India, there are many occasions where the main door takes the spotlight. A new bride, a new family member is always welcomed at the door by Aarti. During house-warming ceremonies we have seen that the owner worships the door frame along with his family and then enters the home wishing a life full of happiness.
We decorate our door frames with beautiful rangolis on festivals and welcome good luck into our homes. Not only Hindus, but even Christians and Muslims decorate the door frames with wreath and other decorative items. Even the direction the door opens is linked to the prosperity of the people living in the home.
The manufacturers also give a lot of importance to doors and frames as they are directly associated with the flow of positive energy. They believe that doors are one of the most important elements and hence use the best wood to make it look impressive for the client. In India, manufacturers usually consider high quality wood for door and frames compared to metal or glass. Hence, it is essential to understand which one to choose from the wide range available in the market.
The door manufacturer in India largely pick teak wood as it is the most durable and workable wood. Teak wood is very versatile and looks stunning as an end product. There are various grades of teak wood. Dandeli Teak, Balrasha Teak and Malabar Teak are the superior quality teak in Indian market. Manufacturers also use Burma Teak and CP Teak sometimes to make the door price economical.
The Sal wood is the second widely used wood for making doors and their frames. This wood also equally heavy and durable and is resistant to ants, termites, fungus thus making it the best for outdoor purposes. It can be worked on easily hence the door manufacturers wait for it to dry and then run the saw for designing the door. Sal wooden doors do not get damaged even if they come in contact with water. They retain the size and form immediately.
Deodar wood is not as strong and sturdy as teak wood but is an ideal choice if you are looking for a beautiful door and frame in a fixed budget. The finishes are smooth and can be easily worked on as per design specifications.
Shisham wood is similar to Sal wood and is resistant to fungus, termites and ants. The manufacturers guarantee that the door would never get twisted or deformed even in harsh weather conditions.
Design your door and the frames from the best manufacturer who uses only well seasoned wood. Inspect the manufacturers’ workshop before you finalize. Make a choice as per your budget and flaunt away your door to every visitor to your home.
