AMIGHINI give the look of the “old” complemented by the performance of the “new” through our exacting standards and engineering methods. The AMIGHINI hand made distress compliments our door’s textures by giving them a naturally aged, look and feel. When combined with our own produced patinas and tones pigments used in our ancestry finishing process passed in the family through four generations. AMIGHINI specialty millwork made to the highest standards let's you tailor the beauty, warmth, character, and texture to your exact preferences.
- Engineered wood floating panels range from 3/4” to 1 3/4”
- Computarized Mortise Channel to allow the panel to be steady.
- Stiles and rails joined by mortise and tenon Joinery. This method is widely accepted as the highest standard being used since hungreds of years.
Tenon is made from Hardwood, measuring 1/3 the door thickness, making a perfect connection bond by the best two component adhesiv.
- Shock absorption, good memory, vibration isolation and vibration damping characteristics that’s combined into a stable material with a long fatigue life
- Solid hardwood Veneer - 1/4” over solid engineered core
- Solid Core LVL made form the highest technology to ensure you stability, strength and longetivity of your door.
- Backing Support made of your Hardwood selection
- at AMIGHINI we custom design every piece for our customers. Flexibility is what you have with us, no limitation on design is one of our principals.
At AMIGHINI Doors we are often asked which is best: solid wooden doors or engineered wooden doors? Some people assume that solid wooden doors are better quality, but this is a myth and if you are a non-believer please read on.
Solid Wood Doors
Wood is a beautiful material (smell, look and feel), but it is complex and high maintenance. Wood is a natural product and it will shrink and swell according to humidity and climate conditions and you can’t control those factors.
AMIGHINI goal is to achieve the best balance of stunning natural wood appearance and strong, durable performance, the best solution for doors is to use a strong and stable core, it must be engineered at the highest technology. Modern day timber mills use hydraulic hot presses and special adhesives that chemically bond timbers together to create very strong and stable cores; these techniques also enable them to use sustainable woods.
Some terms used for engineered wooden doors are: LVL – Laminated Veneered Lumber, composite wooden door, solid core, engineered wooden door
Some people have a negative impression of veneered timber or just the term veneered, however if you take a look at the photos below which are both veneered doors with a solid core then you’ll see that the most beautiful wooden doors are most likely of a engineered construction.
If you still need convincing why to choose an engineered wooden door rather than a solid timber door, please read on:
- Environmentally friendly wooden doors
Here at AMIGHINI, the manufacturing process of engineered doors means they are mainly constructed using sustainable materials unlike solid doors. Also the materials are used more efficiently due to the use of smaller composite parts.
- Increased stability of doors
Engineered doors are less prone to warping, bowing, shrinking, expansion/contraction and twisting. This is due to the construction as an engineered door is made from a reinforced composition of materials. This provides the dual benefit of improved life of the engineered door and less maintenance.
- More cost effective timber doors
Solid wood is expensive. Engineered doors are by far the most commonly sold type of doors so they are more prolific in availability and they are generally stronger than solid doors.
- Flexibility in door designs
at AMIGHINI engineered doors are typically available in a far greater range of options (sizes and door designs). There are also many bespoke/custom door options available for your project.
- Consistency of material with timber doors
The look and feel of solid wood doors varies considerably therefore it is difficult to achieve consistency in quality and appearance. Engineered doors are more likely to be uniform in colour and texture providing an almost flawless appearance.
Now take an informed look at our beautiful AMIGHINI doors, but please remember to look after your wooden door.
