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.
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.
