Door cladding is a process in which a thin layer of material is applied to the surface of a door. This can be done for aesthetic or protective purposes. Exterior door cladding can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, plastic, metal, or composite materials.

The main purpose of door cladding is to protect the door from damage. It can also help to improve the appearance of the door and make it more weather-resistant. Door cladding can also help to reduce noise transmission through the door.

There are several different methods of door cladding. The most common method is to use adhesive tape to attach the cladding material to the door surface. Other methods include using screws or nails to fasten the cladding to the door or using a frame to support the cladding.

Door cladding is available in a variety of colours and textures. It is important to choose a cladding material that will complement the colour and style of the door and it should also be chosen based on its durability and resistance to weathering.

What are metal clad doors?

Metal-clad doors are doors that are made out of various types of metal. They are usually used in commercial and industrial settings because they are very durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear.

Metal-clad doors can be made out of different materials, such as steel, aluminium, or stainless steel. They usually have a layer of insulation between the metal sheets to keep the noise level down. Metal-clad doors can be either hinged or sliding, and they can come in various sizes to fit any opening.
