Teckentrup’s Golden Oak – the industry’s most realistic wood effect finish?

It has been some time since Teckentrup moved from a laminate film wood effect to a painted wood effect finish and positive sales have been the result. 

There were a few reasons:

  • Paint finish is more UV stable over time than laminate film, retaining colour for longer and less prone to the finish becoming “milky” in strong sunlight.
  • They outperform films for scratch and abrasion resistance.
  • Making frame legs and sections from laminate film introduces stress marks at each bend so it’s not an option.
  • With a painted finish, there are no such limitations. Frame legs and headers don’t complement, they match.
  • Fitting part-within or within the opening now means an edge to edge matching finish - customers love it!

All the points above make a great case… …but what about the obvious one? They look amazing, perhaps…. the best in the industry!? No weak grain effects that merge into a solid colour from all but a few feet away, just natural looking grain and great colour.

A perfect match between door and frame!

Take a look at these images - If you’ve not seen the painted finishes on a complete door, Teckentrup thought sharing a few pictures was the best way of showing just how good the finish is.

Teckentrup are indebted to Mark Kenyon @ Pennine Doors for such a fine installation.
