8’ solid core interior doors

Doors with a solid core more closely replicate the weight and feel of solid wood doors. The solid core material provides the door with enhanced dimensional stability, support and durability. In addition to the pleasing weight and feel, doors with solid cores also act as better sound insulators than doors with hollow cores. Sound Transmission Coefficient, or STC, is an indicator of a given material's ability to act as a sound barrier. The higher the number, the better the performance. Solid core doors will perform 15% better in this category than hollow core doors. Kargar offers these doors as a standard feature in an effort to reduce interior noise from room to room.  The look and design of the doors are also a nice touch to any Kargar Home.solid interior doors.jpg
