The Creation of an AvantGuard Door

Click through this slideshow, courtesy of Masonite, to learn how Masonite manufactures its wooden door facsimiles.

The doors are aligned on large printers using an advanced laser guidance system.

The print heads remain stationary while the entire door moves rapidly beneath them on a large vacuum platen for coating consistency. Multiple passes beneath the print head ensure a quality print.

The industrial scale Inca printers cure the ink as soon as it is applied using a high-intensity UV technology for durability and a clear print.

Each door is hand inspected for consistency, ink coverage, alignment, and authenticity.

This close-up image of a cherry print shows the fine resolution of the printers; each print is composed of thousands of individual ink droplets in five colors which combine to create the completed print.
