Wooden doors and door frames are incredibly versatile, having several use cases throughout any building or construction project. Malaysian timber door and door frame manufacturers have the necessary expertise to assist in the design, customisation, and installation of various different door types, both internal and external. Businesses in the building and construction industry looking for wooden doors and door frames need look no further than to the Malaysian Wood Moulding and Joinery Council (MWMJC), which can assist businesses contact any of its members in this subsector.

As a tropical and equatorial nation, Malaysia is blessed with an abundance of tree species, many of which are excellent materials for the manufacturing of timber doors and door frames. These include species such as Merbau, Bintangor, Nyatoh, Balau, Meranti, Kapur, and Kekatong, as well as pinewood for internal doors.

Leveraging this natural wealth, Malaysian wooden door and door frame manufacturers have honed their craftsmanship in the production of both solid timber and engineered wooden doors and door frames. Most Malaysian manufacturers in this space are fully capable of delivering both internal and external doors, whether fire-rated or not. Doors can also be provided pre-hung or as slabs.

Malaysians overwhelmingly prefer external doors to be constructed from solid timber due to its durability, aesthetics, and insulating properties. Many Malaysian manufacturers of external/front doors have been in the industry for decades, employing both traditional wood-crafting techniques and modern automation technologies, coupled with the timber door frames that heavier doors often demand. These industry leaders can manufacture external timber doors to a variety of specifications, whether double leaf, single leaf, or even sliding and folding doors; they also couple the physical solidity of solid timber doors with modern security and locking systems. External doors are also treated and finished to be weatherproof, fire-resistant, and termite-resistant.

Meanwhile, internal doors are made both from traditional solid wood as well as engineered and composite wood products, the latter for being lightweight, easier to install, and more cost-effective, while also being structurally strong and soundproof. Malaysian door and door frame manufacturers are able to provide internal doors with solid cores and hollow or honeycomb cores, amongst others, in a variety of styles, colours, and decorations. Fire-rated internal doors are becoming more and more popular over time, and Malaysian industry players have stepped up to provide such doors.

Many Malaysian wooden door and door frame manufacturers also are beginning to wise up to the need for compliance to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) regulations and guidelines, and have actively sought out timber with the appropriate sustainability certifications (e.g. PEFC, FSC).

Of MWMJC’s 700-odd members, over 50 of them specialise in the production of timber doors and door frames.
