Door panels are received in a semi-finished state from abroad – predominantly from Italy. There are three types of door structures, all with pre-installed sound proofing insulation: honeycomb, blockboard (a type of engineered wood), and wide deal (which is another type of white wood engineered with internal small holes to avoid warping).
The panels are untouched, meaning that there are no ready-made holes for hinges or knobs; thus allowing for a wider degree of customisation via George Cassar Woodworks’ computerised cutting machines. The height generally caters for doors of approximately 2 and a half metres. In terms of width, clients can choose from eight different sizes.
All doors are beautifully finished – a result of the international and local workmanship combination – durable and insulated. Above all they are well priced, something which is of course attractive to the local clientele.
Whilst our speciality is laminated doors, in 2019 the company introduced lacquered doors to their portfolio, with white and cream being offered as standard colours. GCW have also added fire doors to their portfolio – in this case no customization is possible – this is due to the certification they come with – any changes to locks or size will result in loss of such certification.

Once an order is confirmed and measured, the next step is to input the measurements onto the system in order for the machine operator to issue what is called a shopping list – these are the items required to produce the door. All components, are the same – the only variance would be the door size. The process starts from the CNC machine which will produce the door, and its required grooves – according to the model chosen.

The door is thus cut to size, and locks and hinges are installed through an automated process. As soon as the door is ready, it is prepared for delivery and typically installed within 24 hours. Records of all sales are stored into the system. This facilitates replacements or changes in settings. Furthermore, it makes it easier for the salesperson to identify if a particular product is still under guarantee as well as having clear information with regards to supply costs.
