Sylvester Pine (Naturally resistant to borer & termites) 100% imported
- Name Sylvester Pine
- Other names Scots Pine
- Sources Ranging from western Europe to Eastern Siberia
- Appearance Very attractive wood with straight grain, very close density, honey colouring, and very subdued growth rings.
- Physical properties Similar in strength and hardness to united states yellow pines but has much better working qualities. Rates medium in bending and crushing strength and low stiffness, shock resistance and decay resistance. Stable in service but can distort significantly if not seasoned properly.
- Uses Used for staircases, trim, sash doors, cabinet framing, vehicle components, furniture, turnery, general construction, plywood, veneers and pulp.
1) Dimensional stable core signifying enhanced strength and extra durability.
2) Its frames provide strength for fitting of hinges and anti deviation resistance.
3) Chemically treated to resist borer and termite attack.
4) Kiln dried to resist moisture, warping and to avoid twisting.
5) Manufactured to suit local climate and ready onto fix doors.
6) Excellent strength, stiffness impact resistance
7) Unique dimension stability
8) Superior finish.

Advantages of Finger Joint: (As per BIS Specification)
Finger jointing results in higher quality and stronger pieces and components, while dramatically reducing waste in the industry. By using finger joints, it is possible to produce pieces of sawn timber that are made completely of heartwood, knotless and very straight. The most important advantages of finger joint wood are straightness, dimensional stability, and the end product is always of premium quality.
Installations & storage guidelines for Flush door-
1) Deliver doors to the building site after the plaster, drywall and/or concrete dries.
2) Stacking of flush doors are recommended to be in a horizontal position on a flat floor in a clean, dry, well-ventilated building; the doors shall be kept away from direct sunlight and source of extreme heat, cold or humidity. Do not lean on the doors vertically against a wall or other structure.
3) If the doors are being stored at the job site and not for immediate installation, the top & bottom sides must be sealed.
4) Flush doors should not be trimmed by more than 10mm at any of its edges.
5) Locks should be placed at exactly the place shown by the sticker, immediately after the installation.
6) The gap between the frame and door shall be 3mm.
7) Polish/paint or laminate on door surface is recommended to be on both sides and with same characteristics material only, to avoid warpage later on.
