In Singapore where majority of the population stays or works in compact buildings, it is common for fires to start and spread rapidly within a unit and to neighboring units. A fire-rated door is being used as a passive fire protection as it curbs the spread of the fire from one room to another. Fire-rated doors are made of fire-resistant materials such as glass, solid timber and metal. Installing a fire-rated door can effectively prolong the time it takes for a fire to spread and potentially save lives. Li Door supplies a full range of fire-rated doors in Singapore, they are used in HDB homes to commercial buildings.

Laminate Door Veneer Door
Composition
An artificial material, laminate is made by pressing together thin layers of flat paper and plastic resins. The upper layer is printed with a decorative pattern or color. Veneer is technically a thin layer of hardwood which is bonded or glued with adhesive, to a surface that is hidden below.
Variety
Available in a variety of colors and shades, laminates can be broadly classified into textured, high gloss, soft and matte. Textured laminates replicate the feel of materials like wood or stone. High gloss and matte laminates can be used according to one’s personal style. There are few types of veneers, each serving a particular purpose. Veneers are classified into raw, paper backed, phenolic backed, laid up, reconstituted veneer and wood on wood. Since it is a natural material, veneer is available in a limited number of shades.
Maintenance
Laminates are definitely easier to maintain. They are scratch-resistant, waterproof and usually retain their look for years. In comparison to laminates, veneers require more maintenance. They need to be polished from time to time to maintain their beauty.
Aesthetics
While laminates are available in a variety of colors and designs, they lack uniqueness in appearance, since they are mass produced. Since veneers are made from wood, they maintain the elegance and grace of their parent material. Unlike laminates, each veneer is distinctive adding a unique and rich feel to furniture.
Durability
Laminates are known for their durability and reliability. Since it is a printed surface, made to look like wood, and bonded to a composite base, it is extremely durable and resists scratches and stains. Veneers are usually not as durable as laminates and require maintenance and care since they are prone to scratches.
Cost
Laminates are usually pocket-friendly and more affordable as compared to veneers. The price of laminates depends on the quality and the brand. High-quality veneers are much costlier than laminates since the veneer value depends on the type of wood.
