Modern Concealed Doors

Modern Concealed Doors

We focus on providing Modern “Flush with the Wall” Doors with Concealed Door Frames and Hidden Hinges. Featuring short lead times and shipping to anywhere in the world.

Our Hidden Door Frames are easy to install and fit all standard sizes and wall thicknesses as well as custom openings.  A Flush Door Panel in combination with our special-design Concealed Door Frames achieves a frameless and trimless look that so many architects and designers are looking for in contemporary construction.

We don’t sell Doors. We sell a Design

We are able to manufacture Frameless Outswing Door Frames as well as Frameless Inswing Door Frames. That means you have the flexibility to have your door Flush on the Outside of the Room but still have it swing to the Inside. A perfect solution when you want all the doors to sit in the same plane of the wall.

In addition to the Hidden Frame and Hidden Hinges, we can provide a Primed Flush Door Panel as well which can be painted to match the wall color. The Wall, the Concealed Door Frame and the Concealed Hinges then form a unique look to set your doors apart from everyone else’s traditional trimmed doors.

Concealed Door Hinges

To achieve a "Flush with the Wall" look, the Adjustable Concealed Hinges (also known as 3D hinges) are a vital ingredient. Ordinary Ball Bearing Hinges are bulky and visible, and take away from the minimal flush design, when the door is closed.

The term "Adjustable Hidden Hinge" is key when it comes to installing any flush door that needs to sit perfectly aligned in the door opening. Many ordinary concealed hinges are not adjustable and, given the unavoidable imperfections of interior walls, will not allow you to fine tune the door panels position.

Why do we focus on "Flush with the Wall" doors?

With the onset of more modern home designs, the demand for this type of door has increased over the last few years. We feel that no Oman company has properly addressed the need for a more modern concealed door frame that does away with the need for trims.

There are of course other companies (usually based in Europe) that offer similar Door Frames with Flush Panels, however size restrictions, long lead times and high costs are a major concern. We aim to provide short lead times and the lowest prices in the market.

CERAMIC VS. PORCELAIN TILES

Ceramic VS. Porcelain Tiles

Although they belong to the same family, porcelain and ceramic tiles are more like cousins than twins.

Some people will use the terms porcelain and ceramic tiles interchangeably, but there are a few differences. This means one might be a little more advantageous for your project. Just something to keep in mind.

Depending on how you plan to use your space, porcelain or ceramic tiles may suit you better. Here’s how they differ and where they’re best used.

A QUICK COMPARISON

The main difference between a porcelain and ceramic tile is the rate of water they absorb. Porcelain tiles absorb less than 0.5% of water whilst ceramic and other non-porcelain tiles will absorb more.

This is down to the stuff used to make porcelain tiles. The clay is denser and so less porous. It effects how the tiles behave, and what they’re best used for.

Here’s a helpful overview of the key things that make each tile what it is. We like to help where we can!

CONSTRUCTION

How are ceramic tiles made?

Ceramic tiles are made using natural red, brown or white clay. Firstly the clay is fired at a high temperature to reduce the water content, the glaze followed by the pattern is then applied. Voila, then you have your finished your product.

How are porcelain tiles made?

Porcelain tiles are made using very specific clay, with finely-ground sand and feldspar added to the mixture. The tiles are fired at a higher temperature than ceramic, this helps to make porcelain tiles super hardwearing.

DENSITY & DURABILITY

The Porcelain Enamel Institute rating (PEI rating) is a quick and easy way to see which tile is suitable in your home depending on how many times the area you are tiling is walked over.

Tiles are graded from 0-5 depending on the hardness of the tile:

  • PEI 0 - No foot traffic (wall tiles)
  • PEI 1 - Very light traffic (e.g. bathroom)
  • PEI 2 - Light traffic (e.g. bathroom and bedroom)
  • PEI 3 - Light to moderate traffic (suitable for most domestic floors)
  • PEI 4 - Moderate to heavy traffic (suitable for domestic floors and some commercial uses)
  • PEI 5 - Heavy traffic (suitable for all domestic and commercial uses with heavy footfall)

Most ceramic floor tiles are graded between 3 and 4. Porcelain tiles tend to have a rating between 3 and 5.

CERAMIC OR PORCELAIN TILES FOR…

The shower

As porcelain is nearly waterproof, porcelain tiles are the best material to use when installing a wet room due to the levels of moisture.

Ceramic is perfect to use all over in a standard bathroom especially with the wide choice of designs available including some with anti-slip properties.

High foot traffic

The durability of porcelain tiles make them perfect for high traffic areas as they’re resistant to scratches and scuffs. Whether in an area of the home that sees high footfall, such as the hallway or kitchen, or in a commercial space, porcelain is the most hard wearing. However, compared to other flooring options such as laminate or carpet, ceramic tiles still represent a durable and hard-wearing choice.

Your patio or outdoor space

Porcelain’s level of water resistance means it’s perfectly placed to weather everything that nature has to throw at your new patio. In cold weather, ceramic may crack, meaning you’ll be needing a replacement floor much sooner than you’d like. In this case porcelain will offer you peace of mind.
