A PVC wrapped door is produced using moulds and high temperatures to ensure maximum hygiene and it is often used as the doors for hospitals and medical clinics.

How are PVC wrapped doors made?
PVC doors are made using high temperatures, high pressure, moulds and using patterns.

What to look for when buying PVC doors
A lot of production is involved, so you should seek manufacturers that minimise waste and are energy efficient. For instance, many will be able to use any post-production waste and regenerate it into raw material, which has minimum carbon impact.
You want to ensure that the door has been tested beforehand, especially it if is going to be placed in your school, doctors’ surgery or hospital clinic where there is a high traffic volume of people. Especially if you are seeing hundreds of people a day and machines and beds are being pushed through, you need something that will sustain impact.
In the event that your door breaks, you need to purchase PVC doors with guarantees in place so they can be replaced as soon as possible by the supplier.
Request made to measure
Ask the manufacturer to measure your doorways beforehand and have this signed off by a professional construction manager or architect. Having doors that are too big or small will not suffice – and you also benefit from having something custom made.
