FD30 Flamebreak American Black Walnut Fire Doors
Our veneered Flamebreak doors are manufactured with either Ply or MDF faces. They are constructed using a tri-laminate hardwood core and 10mm thick American Black Walnut lippings. They are then faced with Crown or Quarter Cut American Black Walnut Veneer, sanded to give a smooth finish and pre-finished with three coats of 30% AC Lacquer ready for site installation.
Plywood is one of the most versatile and adaptable materials; it is extremely cost effective. It is a wooden board made from sticking multiple ‘plies’ together with glue to form a thicker board. The boards are alternated to reduce the risk of wood splitting, provide more stability, consistent strength across the board and reduces the shrinking of the wood.
Standard MD is a multi-purpose MDF, made using superior wood and resins, with a high internal bond strength. It is very versatile and used extensively throughout the construction and joinery industries.
American Black Walnut
Available in Crown and Quarter cut.
Characteristics: Heartwood varies from dark tan to deep chocolate depending on amount of exposure to air prior to drying. Grain varies from very straight to interlocked which produces pronounced figures that may or may not be desirable. Pin knots with small dark centres may be prevalent.
If you choose your product to have a clear lacquer finish, it will come with a hard coating with a 30% sheen. This surface is very durable, perfect for lots of use. The process consists of:
- The product is sanded ready for polishing.
- It is wiped down and 2 coats of lacquer is applied.
- Then, it is lightly sanded, which breaks down the grain for a smooth finish.
- A further coat of lacquer is applied to seal and create the hard top.
- Quality checked by our QA manager.
