American Made Hidden Doors - Murphy Door

We Take Visible Pride in Our Hidden Doors

We’ve all seen hidden doors in movies and TV shows, but have you seen one in person? What was once a familiar staple in many movie plots has become a reality for many homeowners. In the past, hidden doors were exclusively built by hand for some of the finest homes in the world. At Murphy Door, we’ve revolutionized the hidden door by shipping pre-made doors straight to your front steps from our shop. Instead of building your door from scratch, install the one you ordered from Murphy Door. The result is a stunning, hidden door that fits seamlessly into your room!

Many of our customers wonder how Murphy Doors are made and what sets them apart. Let’s take a peek into the manufacturing process for our Murphy Doors.

How We Make A Murphy Door

Did you know that all our products are handcrafted in the United States? Once you place the order on our website, our team begins making your custom door. We believe that building our Murphy Doors here in the US guarantees quality work and ensures you receive your door in a timely manner for a great price. Here’s how we build our doors:

Step One: Cut Pieces

After you place an order on our website, our team gets to work cutting pieces for your product. Each piece is cut using the latest CNC (computer numerical control) machines. The CNC machines allow us to cut parts with extreme accuracy, which helps us save you money and helps us complete your order quickly. We use a variety of wood, plywood, and MDF (medium-density fiberboard) to complete your order. After cuts are made from the CNC machine, some pieces are sent through an edge bander to trim down sides so all the parts match correctly.

Step Two: Assemble

Once all the pieces for your order are cut, they are sent over to a drill and dowel machine. The machine makes holes that help guide dowels and fasteners during assembly. The face frame is assembled and then run through a sander to ensure the size is perfect in width and height. Then, our team gets to work assembling the beginning stages of your door, ensuring that the door is perfectly square before we continue the next step.

Step Three: Paint & Cure

After the first assembly stage, it’s time for a smooth layer of paint. All the pieces are sent through a Venjakob paint sprayer, an incredibly precise machine that applies paint in grams, giving us control over how thick the coat of paint will be. In many cases, we do a primer coat and two finish coats to ensure the paint on your door is incredibly smooth and long-lasting. Once painted, they are sent to a dry cure room. Dry curing paint is an innovative process that rapidly dries and cures the paint to make it highly durable.

Final Assembly

Next, our team gets to work on the final assembly stage of your door. They’ll take all the framing and pieces and put them together. The door and hinges are placed on the jam, along with any cabinet doors and knobs, if they are part of your order. Any electronic elements are added, such as electric locks and door automation.

Package & Ship

Finally, we get to work packaging your door for shipment. At Murphy Door, the innovation doesn’t stop once your door is built. We custom-design shipping boxes for each product, ensuring they’re packaged safely in a box for your door. This machine helps us cut back on excessive cardboard waste. The box is securely packaged and wrapped to stand upright, ensuring safety during shipping. Then it’s loaded onto a semi and sent straight to your door!
