Comparison Between Solid and Laminated Panel Door in Their Manufacturing Industry
Muhamad, Ishak (2003) Comparison Between Solid and Laminated Panel Door in Their Manufacturing Industry. Masters project report, Universiti Putra Malaysia.
The wooden base doors manufacturing in Malaysia is listed under mouldings industry. In this manufacturing industry there are two types of decorative doors, that is solid door and laminated panel door. The characteristic and properties of these doors are different each other because of their structure. The laminated panel door is less durable than solid door in external condition but the demand for this door increases every year. The laminated panel door has extra attractive characteristic where this door provide the excellent pattern in the surface area and it make the laminated panel door suitable to setup in the high class premises like hotel and office building. This study provides a framework to process laminated panel door with same equipment and machineries to produce 570 pieces of solid door per day. With a few additional machine and manpower, the laminated panel door could reduce the raw material cost where 85% of the cost was covered by sawn timber. This condition can help the manufacturer to increase their margin from the production activity and its can make sure the manufacturer will survive among the competitors in the door manufacturing industries.
