Fibre for style

Fibre doors have several advantages

They separate the world and your private space. Doors offer security and style.

When trees were being cut down as if there were no tomorrow, wooden doors remained the standard. But in many new homes, wood is preferred only for the main door. But they have made way for designer fibre doors in soothing colours now.

The manufacturers offer fast delivery, the frames and doors fixed fast without tedious carpentry work. The cost of teakwood and rosewood doors has pushed them beyond the reach of many, and here the fibre doors offer another advantage. At Rs. 1,400, an entry-level door can be yours. Both the imported and native varieties of fibre panels are now available on the market with attractive designs replicating the antique look and finish of the wooden creations. Dealers in Kozhikode say the imported panels from countries such as Malaysia and Taiwan are the premium sets, with starting prices of Rs. 2,400 apiece.

“Earlier, the buyers had to limit their choice of colours. Now, newer shades and patterns are available ,” says owner of a fibre-door trading agency in Kozhikode. The market is now ready to supply more than 20 types of shades. The water- and termite-resistant doors can be selected according to the colour of the floor and wall tiles.

For people who want more benefits, there are weight-saving panels available. The service of field executives is available on call. “Earlier, such clients were only interested in using fibre doors for bathrooms. Now, the situation has changed and we have several upper-class clients who make use of fibre doors for the bedrooms,” says a skilled worker in the sector.
