There is an urgent need for reforms in door manufacturing in India

Sleek Boards
India is a unique country which utilizes timber batten infill in the flush and skin doors; a primitive process, discarded globally many decades back.

We must say goodbye to our obsession for timber filled doors. You may be aware that the concept of recycling wood scrap as an infill in doors is no more a reality as the saw mill operations are getting smaller with reduction of timber availability, and on the other hand, there is an explo-sion of construction due the rise in housing needs all over India. More than 12 lakh trees every year are required to feed the infill needs of over 100 lakh doors each year. Realizing, the bare facts and non sustainable practices, other countries have already switched to ecofriendly infill boards like the tubular boards which are 100% made from recycled wood wastes. We should also change... It is too late already.
More than 12 lakh trees every year are required to feed the infill needs of over 100 lac doors each year

The Tubular infill boards are eco-friendly and A green producT iniTiaTive replacing the 80% of timber used internally as door infill which dramatically improves the performance of the door in the following manner: These filler cores are already in use in 65 countries for the last 63 years.


Extruded tubular and solid boards offer a wide range of sound insulation results for lightweight construction as well as high-end solutions.


The board being produced by extrusion method, the particle direction is predominantly vertical to surface which in case of exposure to fire, provides a low rate of burning. Sauerland offers full support for safe fire door constructions.


The density in solid areas i.e. walls of board is a high 520 kgs/ m3. Further, the arch principle as in case of construction of dams or bridges, gives high impact resistance.


Critical thickness tolerance of +/-0.1mm in the board gets rid of telegraphing as the calibrated board gives a beautiful surface finish and a good bond between the skin and the board.


Tubular boards as an engineered product ideally suits lightweight strategy, value feeling in handling the door and high technical performance.


The only filler board available in India meeting the formaldehyde emission norm making it suitable for indoor use.


The tubular structure also helps the door to maintain straightness under climatic variations.


Save the tree for reducing climate change. All our products are certified by PEFC.


Almost zero thickness swelling in Sauerland board compared to flat pressed board which expands in thickness causing stress on skin bonding and in cases even rupturing the door.

Very few people in India know that the Sauerland infill board is in use by the door industry for 63 years as a timber substitute for infill material having with stood the test of time over 6 decades and in use in over 65 countries which means it has global acceptance. It is much older in use than the timber batten filling common in India's flush door industry.
