The oak bracing pack includes:
2 x 1.1m lengths which are 150mm wide x 20mm thick
1 x oak lock block with is 250 x 150mm x 20mm thick
Why are the bracing packs supplied loose: –
They are supplied loose so the pack can be installed to the preferred way in the property or if a couple of doors are order in which a preferred installation direction is required. Similarly because they prefer to choose which way to have their bracing fitted on site.
The bracing pack works together with most of our oak ledged doors.
Some customers feel the bracing packs give a more rustic/aged feel to the doors which is why they choose to install the pack. There is no structural reason why you would need to install this product.
Why would I need a lock block?
Lock blocks are generally used in connection with door handles – for instance the suffolk latch which is sold in the beeswax sets work perfectly in connection with them.
The use of an oak lock block prevents you having to cut into an architrave set and/or door frame. Some would sajust prefer the look of a lock block.
Information regarding the species of timber used.
Bracing packs are manufactured from using European oak which is mainly sourced from France. The timber used is a rustic grade oak meaning that knots/splits, cracks & colour variation can be present within the boards.
How do I install the bracing pack?
The advise that we give is to glue and pin the oak lock block. We have attached some installation instructions to help you out if needed.
