05 Aug New Mullion Options
Elias Woodwork has launched a new line of mullion door options that offer considerable cost savings over traditional choices. The company identified six styles that are preferred by designers and homeowners, and now offers these as a way for woodshops to add a touch of elegance to kitchen designs. What makes them special is the manufacturing process, which offers a high-end look to a budget-conscious customer. Traditional mullion doors are made of solid curved parts resulting in the wood grain following the shape of the curve. They also feature profiled mullion bars which are coped into the frame of the door. However, with these new mullion door options, each style is machined out of a single piece of HDF or solid wood which results in the grain running in just one direction. They are manufactured as a separate insert that is placed in a door frame of choice, to which the shop can then add glass. Screw-on glass retainer clips are provided, if required. For paint grade mullions, the inserts are machined from HDF and can be ordered painted or raw. The wooden ones are machined from a solid wood laminated slab, and can be ordered stained, lacquered or raw.
