Golden Oak – the industry’s most realistic wood effect finish?

It been some time since we moved from a laminate film wood effect to a painted wood effect finish. There were a few reasons:

  • Paint finish is more UV stable over time than laminate film, retaining colour for longer and less prone to the finish becoming “milky” in strong sunlight.
  • They outperform films for scratch and abrasion resistance.
  • Making frame legs and sections from laminate film introduces stress marks at each bend so it’s not an option.
  • With a painted finish, there are no such limitations. Frame legs and header don’t complement, they match.
  • Fitting part-within or within the opening now means an edge to edge matching finish - customers will love it!

All the points above make a great case… …but what about the obvious one? They look amazing. We’d go one further – they look the best in the industry. 

No weak grain effects that merge into a solid colour from all but a few feet away, just natural looking grain and great colour. 

Take a look at these images -  If you’ve not seen the painted finishes on a complete door, we thought sharing a few pictures was the best way of showing just how good the finish is. 

Many thanks to mark Kenyon @ Pennine Doors for such a fine installation.
