Description

These 44mm thick solid oak Framed & Ledged doors look superb when installed and add real character and quality to your home.  Every door is handmade to the exact size you require.

Doors are manufactured in a select grade of oak. Most boards will be clear, with the occasional small knot emphasising the solid oak construction of these doors. All of our Oak is specially kiln dried to 8-10% for use indoors.  We laminate 2 solid sections of oak for the frames, which are then hydraulically press assembled on state of the art machinery to ensure a strong long lasting door, with good stability provided by the 2 part laminated frame.  Each door will come with an oak weather bar.  This is supplied loose to allow you to fit on site once any final planing of the door is completed.

The framed & ledged doors are available in either a bead & butt option or a V Grooved profile.  Each door features closed cell foam sealing strips between each board to create a weatherproof door.

You can add different options to your door, like a glass opening or a bracing pack.  All our external mortice & tenon door’s are handcrafted to each order. The typical lead time is around 3-4 weeks.

Timber Grades

We manufacture Framed Ledged Doors using a specially selected grade of oak. The oak is bought directly from a number of partner sawmill in central and northern France where the best quality slower grown oak is found.

Most boards will be clear, some may have the occasional small knot emphasising the solid oak construction of these doors. There can be some colour variation within the boards as you find in any natural raw material.

All of our Oak is specially kiln dried to 8-10% for use as an exterior door and will exhibit minimum movement in use. As with all timber its extremely important to thoroughly finished external doors as soon as they are installed to prevent rapid moisture content changes that can lead to door swelling.

Standard and Custom Sizes

Framed & Ledged external oak doors are manufactured to order to your exact size. We will make your door in any size up to 950mm x 2100mm for the same price. We can make larger doors but please call with your requirements.

All the doors are made to a standard 44mm thick using laminated oak stiles and rails. To manufacture these we laminate 2 x 22mm oak sections in house.

We strongly recommend you specify the door a few mm oversize, and plane the door on site to suit unless you are absolutely sure that the door frame is 100% square. They rarely are! Your new oak door is custom made, and cannot be returned/refunded once manufactured so please consider these measurements carefully. We will confirm them back to you once you have let us know in an order confirmation so we both have a clear understanding of the size required

Please note that your new door is hand made and will take around 2-3 weeks to manufacture.

Options

Bracing Pack

You can order the door with the optional bracing pack, which allows you to convert the door to a ledged and braced format. Braces are the diagonal pieces of timber, which were fitted in the past to provide extra support to the doors. With modern construction methods, these are not now structurally required but some customers prefer the look.

The pack can be supplied as loose braces to be fitted on site or we can fit the braces for you. If you would like us to install your brace pack, we will automatically fit the braces 'right Side of brace to top' unless you tell us otherwise. If you do wish for us to install your braces a different way please state this in the order basket.

Door Profile

We can supply your new FLB doors in two inner board profiles, V Grooved or Bead & Butt. There is no price difference for this choice.

V Grooved doors tend to give a subtle and clean look to the door and work particularly well in period cottages or barn conversions. Bead & Butt profile adds some extra detail and would often have been used in larger properties reflecting the additional work that would have gone into making them at that time.

Finishing

We do not offer prefinishing on external doors as they usually require some minor planing once on site. When you receive the door it should be checked for fit, in most cases external door frames are not completely square and your new door will often require minor planing on site to fit depending on your door frame.

Once this is done then the door must be finished. We cannot overstate how important it is to properly finish timber external doors to provide satisfactory service. All timber will expand and contract as it gains and loses moisture. That's why your door can take on moisture and expand in winter weather. Thoroughly finishing the door will slow this movement to a minimum. It is extremely common to find timber doors that have not been finished properly, almost always in difficult to reach places such as underneath the door.

Even with thorough finishing often timber doors can require minor planing in the first couple of seasons. You should always follow a good maintenance programme with solid oak exterior doors, refinishing them as necessary.
