What Makes PVC the Ideal Material for Bathroom Doors?

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

Bathrooms experience high levels of humidity and moisture despite the installation of exhaust fans and ceiling fans. For this reason, bathroom door materials should be chosen with careful consideration to ensure that you don't end up putting in too much work to maintain them and extend their usable life. Polyvinyl chloride, commonly known as PVC, is one of the best materials that you should consider using for your bathroom doors. PVC has the following features that make it a worthwhile investment during your bathroom renovation project.

Waterproof properties

PVC is a man-made plastic material that does not degrade in the presence of moisture. This makes it superior to wood and other materials that contain absorbent fibers which can degrade in value when exposed to water and humidity environments. With no natural fibers to absorb water, problems of rotting, warping, and mold growth is eliminated, and your bathroom door can last for years without showing any physical signs of degradation due to exposure to moisture.

Low maintenance requirements

Many homeowners hardly pay attention to the maintenance needs of their bathroom doors. Instead, they are occupied with exterior doors and windows which are paramount to maintain the security of the home. Choosing a high-maintenance material such as wood for the bathroom door is a bad idea unless you are up for the task. Why not opt for PVC which is practically maintenance free. Wiping the door clean every once in a while is all you need to maintain its aesthetics.

Anti-corrosive properties

Many people choose corrosion resistant metals such as steel and aluminium for their interior and exterior doors. However, even the metals with high corrosion resistance can corrode if they are poorly maintained or exposed to weather and corrosive elements. PVC is an anti-corrosive material, which means that it cannot corrode or rust regardless of the environment it is exposed to. This makes them the suitable option for bathroom doors since the humid environments can degrade most metals over time. Also, chemical spills from bathroom products cannot eat into the plastic as they do with metal.

Improved aesthetics

Aesthetics are an essential aspect of every interior fixture, and you should ensure that your bathroom doors complement your bathroom design. PVC doors can be painted in any color to match or complement your home or bathroom décor. You can also get creative with patterns and textures to achieve a particular rustic, modern, contemporary, or country look. PVC bathroom doors can even be painted to mimic other materials such as wood or stone.

Bathrooms are heavy traffic areas that experience high levels of humidity. PVC material can give you a functional and durable bathroom door without worrying about aesthetics and high maintenance requirements.

Developing an Intuitive Relationship With Industry and Manufacturing

Almost everybody engages with industry and manufacturing in some way or another. You may work in the manufacturing industry, you may source industrial goods for your business, you may buy housing materials, or you may simply use the products created by these industries. Regardless of how directly or tangentially you are connected to industrial and manufacturing concepts, I think there will be posts in this blog that appeal to you. Hi! My name is Jeb, and in this blog, I am going to cover virtually anything and everything about these two ideas. I hope you don't mind if I write whatever appeals to me on a day-to-day basis related to what I've been thinking of or what I've read in the news or trade journals.
