Standard vs. Alpha
This product is considered a standard bookcase door designed for utility and storage; the Alpha Door design, exclusive to Hide-A-Way Doors is specifically designed for concealment. Similar to conventional interior doors, standard bookcase doors have to have a small space at the top (out-swing) and bottom (in-swing & outswing) that allows the bookcase to operate like a normal door. The space above an outswing door also allows room so that you able to lift the bookcase off the lower pin in order to remove the door in the event that you have to move large furniture or object into a room. For more information please see our standard vs alpha page.

MDF vs Real Wood
Know what you are buying when you buy from a competitor
MDF & the reasons we do not use it at Hide-A-Way Doors: MDF, or Medium Density Fiberboard, a commonly used material by some manufacturers to maximize their profitability. MDF usually comes with a “wood like” veneer to make it appear like real wood. Less expensive than natural wood, MDF binders in the glue resin usually contains urea formaldehyde which is a toxic chemical used to strengthen the material. MDF does not hold up well in humidity, it is weaker it does not hold screws or nails very well. MDF lasts a fraction of the time that real wood does. Real wood grain patterns are like fingerprints, each are unique, but MDF with wood like veneer is man-made that has an unnatural uniform appearance.
The Hide-A-Way Doors way: Our bookcase sides, shelves, and adjustable shelves are made from cabinet grade plywood made from real wood, all of our trim case molding, face frames, threshold, jambs, and moldings are made from solid real wood. Why take our word for it? Do the research for yourself MDF vs Real Wood.
