As for the types of doors, there are many types of doors on the market today, and each type of door has its own characteristics. Aluminum alloy doors and wooden doors are doors commonly used in our lives, and many people do not know much about their differences. So in this article, we will answer the types and advantages of aluminum doors and wooden doors. And compare their characteristics to let you know how to choose the right door for you.

What is an aluminum door

The aluminum door is a door frame member made of surface-treated aluminum alloy profiles through cutting, punching, milling, tapping, manufacturing, assembly and other processing technology, and then using connectors, sealing materials, opening and closing hardware accessories.

The aluminum door has the characteristics of smooth surface, rich color, no aging, and permanent surface. Its hardness is strong, the corner normal collision is not easy to crack or paint off. What’s more, aluminum doors’ surface is non-penetrating and exuding, it has an excellent waterproof performance.

Advantages of aluminum doors

  1. Fashionable and beautiful, various functions: Aluminum alloy doors are generally made of aluminum alloy materials with good strength during the production process. After undergoing a series of processes, these aluminum alloy doors and windows can meet many functional requirements.
  1. Waterproof and fireproof: Aluminum alloy door has the characteristics of fireproof and moistureproof, so the second biggest advantage of aluminum alloy door is that it can withstand the test of fire, reduce loss, and also has the effect of moistureproof.
  2. Easy to clean: The surfaces of aluminum alloy doors and windows are smooth and exquisite, do not leak water, and have unique advantages in moisture-proof and waterproof.
  3. Moisture and insect resistance: There is no need to worry about the damage of doors and windows from insect erosion and moisture. It must be the urgent needs of home users. The characteristics of moisture resistance of aluminum alloy doors and windows are very suitable for the use in the electronic age.

5.  Antibacterial and no odor: Newly renovated new house has a fatal hazard-pollution odor, pungent chemical material smell brought by decoration, which is difficult to remove for a while. No matter how much air freshener is used, the odor will still disturb you for a long time. Private space, and the main material of the aluminum alloy door is aluminum alloy, which avoids the odor hazard of traditional wood and artificial boards.

6. strong and durable: the hardness of aluminum alloy is 10, the aluminum alloy was originally selected for doors and windows series, in terms of strength, hardness, thickness, density and waterproof and moisture-proof!

7. Value preservation and recyclability: Traditional door and window products begin to depreciate as soon as consumers buy them home. Finally, they are replaced and discarded. Sustainable development, recycling, energy saving and environmental protection are increasingly trending. All aluminum doors and windows can maintain value and recycle.  Low consumption; more help in energy saving and environmental protection.


What is the original solid wood door

According to the structure of wooden doors,  solid wooden doors can be divided into original solid wood doors, solid wood composite doors, plywood molded hollow doors. The original solid wooden door is made of natural logs taken from the forest as the core, and then scientifically processed through the processes of blanking, planing, tenoning, punching, carving, and shaping. Most of the wood used in the original solid wood doors is precious wood, such as cherry wood, walnut wood, teak wood and so on.

The finished solid wood door has the characteristics of no deformation, corrosion resistance, no cracks, heat insulation and so on. At the same time, solid wood doors have good sound absorption and effectively play a role in sound insulation.

All solid wood doors have high technical quality requirements, and their advantages are luxurious and beautiful, and thick modeling. The combination of modern precision craftsmanship and traditional hand-carving techniques has given the solid wood doors a natural and long-lasting humanistic and artistic charm, embodying the noble and classic artistic value. He is a successful person with his demeanor and grandeur. However, the market price is on the high side and it is the most high-end wooden door product in the interior door market.

 What is a solid wood composite door

The frame of the solid wood composite door is made of fir or pine, with honeycomb paper, MDF grid, bridge hole mechanical board, solid wood and other structures filled in the middle. , Made after high-temperature hot pressing, and sealed with solid wood lines. General high-grade solid wood composite doors, the core of which is mostly high-quality white pine, and the surface is solid wood veneer.

Due to its low density, light weight, and easier control of moisture content, the finished doors are lighter in weight and less prone to deformation and cracking. A solid wood composite door is equivalent to a solid wood door that is stable, non-deformable, and not cracked. It also has the characteristics of heat insulation, impact resistance, flame resistance, and sound insulation.

The solid wood composite door solves the cracking and deformation of the door core board due to seasonal changes, different annual moisture content in different regions, the inherent shrinkage and expansion of wood and various differences, and the solid wood door due to shrinkage around the core board after painting.

White edges and seams. The texture of solid wood composite doors is slightly inferior to solid wood doors, but the materials and styles are more diverse, or exquisite European-style carvings, or Chinese classical classical mosaics, or stylish modern, different decorative style doors can give consumers a wider range of Pick space.

What are the advantages of solid wood doors?

First, is the clear wood grain texture of the solid wood door, which has a strong overall and three-dimensional sense, which makes people feel comfortable at first sight. The whole solid wood door is made of solid wood. The more popular materials today are alder, ash, red pine, beech and so on.

The second is that the finished solid wood door has the characteristics of no deformation, corrosion resistance, no splicing seams, and good thermal insulation. Because the solid wood door is made of solid wood, it has a high density and a thick door panel. Shen, because of this, solid wood doors have good sound absorption and can effectively play a role in sound insulation.

The third is that the interior and exterior materials of solid wood doors are consistent.

The fourth is that the selection of solid wood doors is generally soft and warm tones, and the main component of wood is lignin. Therefore, the solid wood door is also very strong in absorbing ultraviolet rays. The slight unevenness of the wood surface will form diffuse reflection of light This can effectively reduce eye damage and reduce eye fatigue.

What's the difference between aluminum door and wooden door

The advantage of the wooden door is that it looks thick and stable but is very warm, and it can maintain the same style with the door of the whole house. However, there is a fatal problem, that is, it is not enough to prevent moisture. If the wet and dry separation is not done well, the wooden door will be easily wet, and it will be deformed over time.

The problem with aluminum alloys is that the material is too cold and hard, which will be relatively abrupt, and exposure will damage the overall harmony. However, it is resistant to moisture and will not deform due to excessive moisture. Because kitchens and bathrooms are often wet, wooden doors are inevitably subject to moisture, swelling, deformation, and decay, while aluminum alloy doors have obvious moisture resistance characteristics, stable ingredients, anti-aging, non-deformation, and service life of more than 30 years; At this point, in the southern region, which is easily affected by the rainy season, the moisture-proof function of aluminum alloy doors is particularly prominent.

Compared with wooden doors, aluminum alloy doors are more susceptible to acid, alkali, salt and exhaust gas erosion, which will cause the wooden doors to fade, yellow, peel paint, stain, and rot, which will cause aluminum alloy doors to oxidize rust

Aluminum alloy doors are not affected by any of the above substances, and aluminum alloy doors are suitable for use in various natural environments. Even if it is dirty, the aluminum alloy door can be cleaned with any cleaning agent. In general, the effect of installing aluminum alloy doors is better.

Wooden doors may not see any problems for a while, but for a long time, especially the dark guards, the wooden doors may be affected by long-term damping. The aluminum alloy also has various styles and patterns, such as magnesium-aluminum alloy, titanium magnesium-aluminum alloy, etc., the price is cheaper than wooden doors, and now more and more popular.

Compared with aluminum doors, wooden doors are generally required paint finishes, and paint and artificially synthesized wooden boards contain a large amount of formaldehyde and other harmful substances, which endanger health. The aluminum door meets environmental protection requirements because it is non-toxic and free of other harmful substances.
Also, compared with the characteristics of fire resistance, flammability, and combustion support of wooden doors, aluminum doors have the properties of self-extinguishing, flame retardant and fire resistance in case of fire.

The sound of flushing and showering in the toilet, the sound of cooking in the kitchen and the sound of the motor of the range hood constitute a noise source and disturb the tranquility of other halls. With its unique grid-like or strip-like structure inside, and tight seams, aluminum alloy doors have better sound insulation effects than wooden doors, especially aluminum alloy doors


Aluminum doors vs wooden doors have always been the two biggest competitors in the market. As the longest elder in history, the wooden door has the inherent incomparable advantages of the aluminum door. The solid wood door is still longing for most people.

The solid wood door is exquisite in style and soundproof. It looks dignified and can make various exquisite patterns to match the different decoration styles of each household. The aluminum door is the new darling in the industry. Because it is made of alloy material, it is lighter in weight, but it has high strength and good sealing performance. It is loved by everyone. What is even more commendable is that it is resistant to corrosion, water and insects, and has a long service life. It can be maintained intact with little care. So, after so many comparisons and analyses, do you think which type of door is right for you?
