Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose (Thermo-Laminated) Vinyl Wrapped Cupboard Doors and Panels?
Every product has its own strengths and weaknesses; we choose to work with vinyl as it is;
– A high quality finish at a reasonable price
– Moisture resistant – Highly durable
– Resistant to impacts
– Does not chip if knocked
– Resists easily scratching
– Resistant to staining
– Fade Resistant (due to UV stablisers in vinyl foils)
So vinyl wrapped doors and panels are a great choice for areas of high traffic or that require high durability or even wet areas. So if it is for a Kitchen, Bathroom, Laundry, Office or Commercial space you can be sure you will have a great product for a long time.
Does Vinyl peel with time?
Not if high quality materials, machinery/equipment and skills are used, as we do. With thermo-laminated vinyl wrapped products, the key is ensuring that the crosslinking of the adhesive materials (glues) occurs so that board, glue and vinyl are strongly bonded together.
Yes in the early days, +30 years ago, when the industry was new, there was issues with premature aging of the products but with the modern adhesives and high quality materials we use, you can expect our products to well and truly out live our 7 year Warranty!
Where are the vinyl doors made?
Our factory is attached to our Showroom at 31 Tulloch Way, Canning Vale, so right here in Western Australia!
How long have you been manufacturing and supplying Thermo-laminated Vinyl Wrapped Products?
We have been manufacturing and suppling, since 1997 when we moved from cabinet making into manufacturing Thermo-Laminated Vinyl Wrapped products. So over 20 years of trading as RyForm Doors.
Do you recover old damaged vinyl wrapped items?
No. This is for many reasons:
Removal of the foil can be difficult where the glue is still functioning correctly
Removal of old foil can damage the board underneath, pulling up fibres and requiring repair.
If hinge holes are in the products they may of been bored too deep and would therefore not stand up to the pressures that the board is subjected to inside the Thermo-laminator.
We cannot give a warranty on a re-vinyled product as we cannot know 100% why it failed unexpectedly in the first place especially if the original was not from our factory.
Basically, re-covered vinyl products do not meet our standard, which is why we would strongly recommend just replacing it with a newly manufactured one which does have a 7 year warranty!
Do you come out to measure?
As we are a manufacturer and supplier we do not visit sites, you will need to engage the services of a cabinet maker or measure it yourself.
We can upon request point you towards cabinet makers who use our products.
Do you Drill Handle Holes?
As we are a manufacturer and supplier we do not drill the holes for handles as positioning is a personal choice and requires us diverging too much from just manufacturing the doors and panels. You will need to engage the services of a cabinet maker/ home maintenance services or drill it yourself.
Do you deliver?
Yes but there is a fee involved. Though please note that we will not carry items upstairs and there needs to be a clear path to where the items will be placed.
How long does it take to manufacture?
From the acceptance of you order, to the finish of manufacturing, quality control and packaging, it should be generally seven (7) working days and at peak times this can as long as fourteen (14) working days.
What are your maximum sizes?
Our maximum sizes are as follows:
2700mm (Height) x 1200mm (Width) for 18mm Thick Board (Our Standard)
2400mm (Height) x 1150mm (Width) for 25mm Thick Board
