hollow wood interior slab door
The standard hinged door is as basic as doors come. This is what
everyone thinks of when you say the word ‘door’. A hinged door
typically consists of either a solid wooden panel door or
hollow-cored door affixed to a door jamb with two or more hinges.
Additional hinges are generally required to support taller doors,
and stronger, sturdier hinges are required for weightier doors.
The door may have a knob or lever entry and be lockable or may
simply be pushed or pulled open, depending on where it's installed
and for what purpose. Self-closing door mechanisms are sometimes
found attached to this type of door.

Door framing and installation
When designing a home, it's easy to overlook details like door
frames. The frame can be vital to the longevity of your door’s life
though, as this is what the hinges will be attached to. Likewise,
it can affect how much heat enters or escapes your home.
A weak frame not only presents a security hazard, but will also
deteriorate faster, loosening at the hinges and causing your door
to stop doing what it's supposed to do. Getting the frames
installed properly and with solid materials should be as important
to you as the type of door and materials you choose to go with.
Interior and exterior frames will have different requirements; your
exterior door frames will need to be a lot tougher than your
interior ones, not only because of the potential security risks a
flimsier frame would pose, but because of the constant weather
For exterior frames a nice, solid long-lasting wood like white oak
will keep its appearance throughout the years, and can withstand a
lot of punishment. The wood is also very easy to stain or paint,
giving it added flexibility. Alternatively, for exterior doors you
might consider a steel frame to add a huge layer of security to
Interior frames aren’t subject to the same weather conditions and
security concerns, so can be made of cheaper wood such as pine, or
whichever shade or texture of wood best suits your décor. The worst
punishment your interior door frames are likely to see is from kids
hanging off doorknobs.
Pre-hung doors vs. slab doors
Most manufacturers offer pre-hung doors these days - that is, doors
that come already hinged and attached to a frame. The advantage of
this type of door is that it's already very tightly fitted - and if
you're building a home from scratch, this can help ensure a quick,
easy and secure installation. Pre-hung doors may also be a better
alternative if you're replacing an exterior door - to ensure that
the final product is nice and secure - or when you're looking to
replace a door with a damaged frame.
The alternative is to buy a door and frame separately. A door on
its own (i.e. without a frame, hinges or any door furniture
installed) is simply called a 'slab door'. A slab door on its own
is cheaper than a pre-hung door, but you're obviously not paying
for a frame or hinges either. If you're replacing a damaged slab
door and you're able to find one that has the exact same
dimensions, that's likely to be the easiest route because you'll
already know it's a good fit. Replacing a frame is normally a
different matter altogether.
