Description

These Truro oak doors look are a fantastic exterior feature for any property of that inter and post-war period. Heritage supply a similar 1930’s door with a solid laminated oak frame and oak panels. We make the door as a shaker style with flat oak panels. The Truro is the same door but with an arch at the top of the panel or a ‘swept-head’.

We manufacture the doors to a 44mm thickness for a solid heavy door. Our production staff make the stiles and rails 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.  We use twin dowel joints, which are wedged and hydraulically pressed to make the mainframe of the door. This is a traditional method that results in a much stronger construction than the more common dowelled joints and means you can be sure your door is made to last.

The inner panels are made using solid oak which is edge-glued together to get the sizes needed before being machined flat.  Our exterior doors are assembled with closed-cell foam sealing strips between each component to ensure good weather tightness.

All our exterior 44mm doors are handcrafted to each order. The typical lead time is around 3-4 weeks on these oak external doors. For help with measuring, check out our step by step guide

Points to Note

  • If you are in an area with lots of wind driven rain, we recommend fitting these doors under a porch or covering (i.e. seafront properties)
  • 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.
  • 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.

Timber Grades

We manufacture exterior Truro 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.

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.
