Our panelled doors have a stable softwood core with generous 10mm solid oak wear strips at each side and oak veneered panels surrounded by integral solid oak mouldings. Some natural colour variation should be expected from oak wood doors, and please note that there is a slight difference between the panel construction of standard doors and fire doors.
Oak panelled doors are available in a choice of widths, depending on design, as shown in the table to the right. They are 40mm thick (except fire doors, which are 44mm) and 1981mm high. If you wish to order bespoke solid oak doors, bespoke sizes to 1000mm x 2100 are also available.
Panelled doors can be adjusted as follows:
Laterally: up to 5mm on each side
Vertically: up to 25mm from the top and 50mm from the bottom
Hang on 3 good quality butt hinges suitable for their weight (approx 25kg). Please note that slamming strips set for 35mm doors will need to be adjusted.
If you are using our oak wood doors as fire doors, note that closers and smoke seals may be required to comply with building regulations. We can supply door liners with integral smoke seals to match these doors.
If panelled oak wood doors are ordered with a sanded finish they will need to be lightly hand sanded after fitting with 120 grit paper and sealed with a suitable interior finish to protect from marks and general wear and tear. If you choose one of our workshop finishes, no further finishing will be required. Please bear in mind that additional care will be necessary at fitting stage to avoid damaging prefinished doors.
Our panelled doors should always be stored flat, with a solid support that will not damage their surface (i.e. a sheet of chipboard on a concrete sub-floor) between the bottom door and the floor. Never store oak wood doors outside, nor in an environment in which wet works have not fully dried (as defined in Section 1 of Installation Guide – Floors).
