Door lippings are an important part of door construction. These strips of material are fixed to the edge of a door frame, with the purpose of covering any gaps between the door and its frame.
Door lippings are typically made from hardwood, plastic or metal and come in a variety of sizes and shapes to accommodate a host of different door frames. They are also suitable for painting and staining, should you require a more decorative finish.
You have the option to choose between exposed, concealed or edge-banded lippings depending on your desired aesthetic.
Why Is Utilising Door Lippings Important?
Door edges in high-traffic areas must be protected from regular wear and tear since any accidental impacts or deliberate damage can weaken them over time.
If the door edge isn't safeguarded properly, not only will its aesthetics take a hit but it could also become potentially dangerous for users too. That's why taking proactive steps to protect these vulnerable edges is so essential.
