What is a ‘Slab’ Door?
A slab door, often referred to as a flat panelled door, is a cabinet door that features a completely flat panel without any raised or recessed features.
A slab door can be used within an ‘in-frame’ context - where the door is hung within a door frame or within a ‘lay-on’ context, where the door sits on and over the front 4 edges of the cabinet.
The slab door can be used in a traditional context, particularly when applied to an in-frame approach with a traditionally mounted knob or handle. Alternatively, a more modern approach can be achieved with a handle-less design combined with exciting finishes to include bold paint colours or interesting timber veneer finishes.
For the clean, handle-less look, doors can be opened via a ‘push to open’ door mechanism or an integrated / concealed handle design such as a ‘J’ pull built into the doors top edge or a ‘scalloped’ handle where a finger recess has been built into the leading edges of the doors.
At Curve Craft we can produce almost any style of slab door in an infinite amount of finishes. It goes without saying, given Curve Crafts curved door expertise, that internal and external radius doors up to 2.4 meters in height are possible too!
