New composite door slab

ODL Europe has launched its new Capstone 6 Panel Combi Door slab, allowing fabricators can fabricate seven different door designs from a single door slab.

Nathan Barr, managing director of ODL Europe, said: “With the Capstone 6 Panel Combi Door fabricators can keep stock levels much lower, freeing up warehouse space and easing procurement.”

ODL Europe’s new Capstone 6 Panel Combi Door has a midrail with the woodgrain pattern running through it from top to bottom. The slab can be used to fabricate seven of the company’s most popular designs: the Six Panel Solid, the two Seftons (twin top glazed and twin top and mid glazed), the Traditional Top (top glazed), the Wavertree (half glazed), the Aintree (twin half glazed), and the Traditional (top third glazed).

The 6 Panel Combi Door offers superior strength thanks to the LVL cross-bonded plywood construction with a glue line every 3mm that means it is much less susceptible to twisting, bowing and warping, even when cut to maximum trim, the company said.

There’s the pure PVC composite rail that makes it more stable in manufacture and means the finish is good enough – even after machining – to accept locks and hinges without needing to edge band or fit a secondary edge finish in PVC or aluminium.
