Foil doors are made first by making a blank the size and shape of the finished product. The blank door for example, has adhesive applied on the face surface then foil which is a thin plastic sheet. The door is then heated, the foil softens and is then vacuumed onto the glued fascia and when cooled the excess is trimmed off. Foil produces a tough waterproof surface which can mimic wood, painted or high gloss finishes at a fraction of the cost of high end products. Foil finishes are great for families with youngsters as foil is easy to clean and damaged doors etc are not expensive to replace.
