[0046] FIG. 12 is the three dimensional explosive drawing of the construction while filling into this door with polyurethane. This assembly door is separated to many elements for the further realization of this invention. Numeral 15, the polyurethane, and numeral 14, the left and right reinforced material having groove shape on its side, they constitute the primary body structure of the door. Numeral 10 is the handle's reinforced material of rectangular solid covered with door panels (71, 81, and 91). Numerals 5, 5′, “T” shape's left and right stiles, and numerals 8, 9, top and bottom stiles, form a closed space.

[0047] FIG. 13 is the drawing of related positions among the construction of polyurethane filling, the left and right reinforced material (14) of 3.6 mm width and 12 mm depth, the door panels (71,81,91) having ribs on both sides, and the left and right stiles having flexible-rigid co-extruded convex parts (12), before and after their tightly being connected with one another. Numeral 15 is polyurethane.

[0048] The construction of this invention comprises:

[0049] (1). two door panels (71,81,91) having ribs on both sides;

[0050] (2). a plastic-extruded interior reinforced material (7);

[0051] (3). two plastic-extruded left and right stiles (5, 5′) which can be 6 mm or 10 mm width as required;

[0052] (4). two top and bottom stiles (8, 9) and

[0053] (5). handle's reinforced material (10).

[0054] The door is centered with the plastic-extruded interior material (7), supporting with door panels (71,81,91) having ribs on both sides, and are glued and fixed together with each other. Due to the reinforced material is rigid PVC, there are convex hollow structures appropriated spaced in support of door panels. This single molded structure can reinforce the door strength, facilitate the assembling processes, reduce the defect products, and improve the defects of that the reinforced materials are scattered away and are assembled individually and thus causing waste of time and cost, and lack of strength.

[0055] The left and right stiles are made of PVC with co-extrusion technique, on which the co-extruded convex parts (12, 12′) are inserted with the concave parts of interior reinforced material and formulate a firm construction without gluing. Further, the rigid PVC is easy for modification, and is therefore can match special requirements of door or frame by modifying the appearance dimensions to prevent the defects of glue's overflow in conventional structure and the difficulty for partial modifying work.

[0056] Another model of this invention is that the left and right reinforced materials (14) having groove shapes are joined together with the convex parts of the left and right stiles (5, 5′), and then are matched with the top and bottom stiles and two door panels to form a closed space. After that, it is drilled a hole at the bottom stile for filling polyurethane to the inner part, and form an imitation wood texture door.

[0057] This invention can be made different dimensions of door width as required. The manufacturing method is that using a plastic-extruded interior reinforced material (7), the top and bottom stiles and two door panels to form a closed space. And by cutting the required width after gluing them together, cutting groove on both sides to make left and right stiles with groove shape. Then putting it to be inserted with the flexible-rigid coextruded PVC, to form an imitation wood grain door.

[0058] For the preceding method, its plastic-extruded interior reinforced material can be replaced by filling polyurethane to increase the flexibility and multi-patterns.

[0059] Generally, the raw material of door can be either thermosets or thermoplastics. During the manufacturing process of thermosets, the FRP (fiber reinforced plastic) additive is not compulsory, and the door made of can be recycled for other purpose to fulfill the requirement of environment protection. Besides, if adding Al (OH)3 in the compounding, it can be fireproof providing living safety. If this invented door can replace wood-made door, it can reduce wood chopping in large amount, and protect the precious resource of forests.

[0060] In summary, this creation can save many manufacturing steps, simplify the assembling procedures, and cut down the manpower cost. Besides, this door structure is firm and easy for cutting, and it can anti-moisture and prevent door bending. Therefore, this invented door is useful, economic and creative, and can promote product quality, and as a result, is novel and nonobviousness.
