Description

Structure

We supply this Mexicano Stable door with full 44mm frames with 44mm full width internal vertical boards machined into a solid panel for improved weathertightness. The internal boards have a chamfered joint effect to create a look similar to a Mexicano style. Note that this creates a “V” style joint, not the square groove on most Mexicano doors but the look remains similar. The door looks the same on both sides and is an extremely heavy and substantial door.  We make both door leaves using traditional twin dowel joints and the two leaves are rebated to fit together and supplied with a twin weather seal to the door rebate.

Manufacture

We manufacture these Mexicano Stable exterior doors in our Sheffield factory. We use a prime grade of white oak, specially selected to suit external doors. Most of the timber will be clear however you will find the occasional knot in the door which helps to emphasize the door’s solid oak construction.  The doors are manufactured to a 44mm thickness for a solid external heavy door. The stiles and rails are made by laminating together two 22mm sections of solid oak. Laminating the sections in this way makes the door much more structurally stable than using a single piece of oak. All laminations are done in house so that we can control the quality.

Lead Times

All our exterior twin dowel doors are handcrafted to order. The typical lead time is around 3-4 weeks on these oak external doors  Please note that as a custom-sized door these cannot be returned.  Please check your measurements carefully!

Points to Note

  • These doors MUST be fitted under a porch and cannot be directly exposed to potentially damaging weather conditions
  • We will only guarantee this door IF you choose to have the door factory finished by us. Selecting unfinished will mean we are unable to assist with doors that are warped, twisted, etc. due to moisture ingress unless a 3 stage end grain sealer system has been proven to be used. A care leaflet will be provided with every door detailing the best way for the doors to be finished.
  • The doors are made from solid oak however the flat panels used are cross laminated with an oak veneer. The cross lamination is to ensure the door is more stable and has much more reduced risks of movement than a door made with 100% solid oak. Please contact our sales team for further details.

Timber Grades

We manufacture exterior stable 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

We will make your new external stable doors 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 for us to quote a price. Please note that the dimensions are for both leaves, not each leaf

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. Each leaf will come with a seperate oak weather bar which can be fitted on site.

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

Glass Opening

If your property require a bit of extra light, we can make your door with a glass opening as shown on the image. For us to fot a glass opening in the door, we will have to adjust your ledges slightly, by installing the top legde right at the top of the door. The glass opening will look like the one on the image shown, the size of the glass opening will depend on the size of the door in which you require. Please Note: The glass in not supplied with the doors, we do install the beading on one side of the door and supply you with loose beading for the other side, once the glass is fitted you will be able to fix the beading.

Stable Option

The Stable option is great to allow a visual path between two rooms whilst still creating a barrier for pets as an example. With the stable option, both section's of the door with have a rebate meaning the door will sit flush. With the external stable option, you will also receive an extra weather bar (supplied loose).

Finishing

Oak is a very popular and attractive timber, but it needs very careful finishing to ensure satisfactory service. We strongly recommend you consider our factory finishing option.

If you choose this option your door will go through a multi stage finishing system. Your door will first be sanded and degreased. After any chosen colour stain is applied, a special sealer is used to protect porous end grain. Following this multiple top coats are applied to a specified thickness. We use a specially designed highly thixotropic finish, applied by a very high pressure spray system, that allows us to build up a highly protective layer on your door. V joint sealer is applied where required between top coats, and the door is infrared cured and sanded between each coat.

This system provides your door with the best protection possible from the weather as well as creating a finish that looks much better than a brush applied finish.

If you choose to have your door unfinished, when you receive the door it should be checked for fit. 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. If you prefer to finish your door onsite, each door is shipped with detailed finishing instructions (see download tab to view a copy) that explain how to create a weathertight finish to your door. You must follow these carefully to ensure satisfactory performance.

Even with thorough and correctly specified finishing, timber doors can occasionally 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.

Oak can discolour over time unless UV protection is given to it within the finishing system. This protection is within the pigment, and therefore it is not possible to give proper UV protection with a clear finish. As standard we recommend a medium oak finish. We can apply a clear finish however you should note that this cannot provide UV protection and your oak door may weather and the timber fade over time if this option is chosen.

We specify and use Teknos water based industrial finishes in our factory finishing facility.

PLEASE NOTE - Prefinished doors are hung in our spray facility to ensure full coverage and a top quality finish. This does mean there will be 2 small screw holes in the side of your door. Please be aware of this before ordering.

Delivery

Exterior doors are heavy and Mexicano doors are about the heaviest we make. This can make them liable to transit damage. To avoid this we carefully package them using a sturdy cardboard carton before shipping them with a reputable national courier. Stable doors are packed with each leaf ontop of the other to make a more compact and sturdy parcel.
