In Frontiera, we only use PREMIUM GRADE HDF to manufacture our doors.
WHAT IS PREMIUM GRADE HDF?
PREMIUM GRADE HDF is a type of High-Density Fibreboard. It is made by using very fine Malaysian tropical hardwood particles with advanced technology from US, which compressed wood particles from 40mm to 3mm, with average density of +- 1000kg/m3. (Most HDF in the market with density averaging 700kg/m3)
FEATURES OF HDF SKIN
Tropical Hardwood (Arcacia Wood)
900 - 1000kg/m3(+-)
Variety of Options (Moulded, Tru Oak, Flat Oak, Zen & Plain)
In Frontiera, we are using Direct forming method to manufacture our Premium HDF door skin. In other words, the mould process take part during the production of door skin. It is an advanced US technology to hot press the filtered tropical hardwood fibre from 40mm to 3mm and then mould it into shape. By using this method, it maintains the thickness of door skin as well as making the appearance aesthetic, deep, sharp, clear contour and shadow carved moulded, especially natural wood grain effect.
WHY FINGER JOINT?
Finger joint is also known as a comb joint, it is formed by cutting board ends into matching finger-like projections that fit together. There are a few reasons why Frontiera is using finger joint wood. First of all, the finger joint wood pieces are straight and true, hence, the strength is good because it is stronger than conventional dimension lumber. Besides that, due to the structure reengineered that cut off the wood fibre, the probabilities of warping and bending is less on the finger joint.
