When it comes to choosing doors for your commercial facility, the options seem endless. One timeless and highly customizable choice worth considering is the stile and rail door. In this blog post, we will explore the characteristics, construction, and benefits of stile and rail doors to help you make an informed decision for your building.
What Is a Stile and Rail Door? Stile and rail doors distinguish themselves from standard flush wood doors by incorporating multiple vertical and horizontal wood pieces (stiles and rails) assembled with panels or glass. This unique construction results in a distinctive appearance that combines elegance with durability.
Components of a Stile and Rail Door:
Construction Process: Stile and rail doors are meticulously crafted from 12 or more precisely cut components. Dowel pins and glue are used for assembly, creating a door that appears as though carved from a single piece of wood. The use of thicker veneer, often over a laminated strand lumber (LSL) or particleboard core, contributes to decreased sound transmission, increased strength, and durability. The smooth surface of the veneer allows for exquisite staining or painting.
