This internal 4 panel door is a very popular design, and will be made especially for you in your own bespoke size. We produce the door with the upper panels open ready for you to add your glass on site. We do not supply glass with the doors as there is such a huge choice, however each door will come with suitable real oak glazing beading.
We manufacture these doors in our Sheffield factory. We use a prime grade of white oak, specially selected and kiln dried to suit internal doors. Most of the timber will be clear however you will find the occasional knot in the door which helps to emphasis the doors solid oak construction.
These internal 4 panel doors are manufactured to a 40mm thickness for a solid heavy door. The stiles and rails are made by laminating together two 20mm 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. The lower panels are made from 20mm solid oak panels using edge glued oak.
We use mortice and tenon joints, which are wedged and hydraulically pressed to make the main frame of the door. This is a traditional method which results in a much stronger construction than the more common dowelled joints and means you can be sure your door is made to last.
All our internal mortice & tenon door’s are hand crafted to each order. The typical lead time is around 1-2 weeks on these oak internal doors.
We manufacture these doors to order in our Sheffield factory.
We use a high grade of white oak, specially selected to suit mortice and tenon doors. Most of the timber will be clear however you will find the occasional knot in the door which helps to emphasis the door's solid oak construction. The timber we use is specially kiln dried to make it suitable for internal use.
As with any timber product, once you have ensured the door is the correct size, then it is critical that you finish the door, including on the underside with a good quality finish. Every home experiences changes in relative humidity through the various seasons. Left untreated your door will constantly attempt to equalise with the surrounding moisture content, and will expand and contract as a result. To limit this, thorough finishing is critical
