Styles of Hardwood Doors

Residential Hardwood Doors

Designed from the outset as an external product, residential hardwood doors should have deep sashes to provide room for modern locking systems and drainage channels.

Fitted with insulating glass sealed units or solid hardwood panels they can be installed with matching sidelights or fanlights to meet your individual requirements.

Double Hardwood Doors or French Doors

Based on the residential door product, double doors are often referred to as French Hardwood Doors.

They provide the ideal rear access from your home to your garden.

Double doors can be manufactured to open either outwards or inwards and if the brick to brick dimension requires it, one or more fixed side panels can be fitted alongside.

Hardwood Sliding Patio Doors

Timber in-line sliding patio doors should feature high performance rail and tracking systems to ensure smooth running and easy operation.

Sliding patio doors are ideal in situations where both internal and external space is at a premium and where hinged doors would create an obstruction.

Hardwood Bi-Fold Doors

With flush fitting sashes, bi-fold doors offer clean lines whether open or closed.

They can be manufactured with up to seven door leafs, a maximum of metre each wide can be combined in one bi-fold door set.

Stainless steel fittings and secure drop bolts provide security and stability but due to the method of operation and their size, bi-fold doors can be expensive.

Timber Species used in Hardwood Doors

Timber species used for hardwood doors in the UK should wherever possible be sourced through PEFC (the world’s largest forest certification organisation), FSC (the Forest Stewardship Council) or Verified Progress certified sustainability schemes.

The main timber species used, in order of cost – least expensive first, are: –

European Redwood

Normally used as an engineered laminate stock, European Redwood provides a cost effective solution for hardwood doors, windows and conservatories.

European Redwood is laminated (where more than one length of the timber is glued together with the grain of each length at 90º to the next one) in order to improve durability and stability of hardwood doors.

Sapele Hardwood

Sapele is a class three to four moderately durable hardwood from West Africa featuring an attractive reddish brown grain which is enhanced by a stained finish.

It is one of the most popular species to be used for hardwood doors, windows and conservatories due to its availability and relatively reasonable cost.

Accoya®

Accoya® is the world’s leading high technology, long life wood and consists of a pine species which is generally modified by the acetylation process to provide a class one durable timber, at least as strong, durable and stable as most tropical species.

The acetylation process creates a non-toxic but permanent change in the chemical composition of the timber to make it resistant to biological attack and weathering, as a result it also provides more dimensional stability.  To achieve this, acetylation causes a reduction in hygroscopicity of the timber – in other words it less likely to be affected by water and water vapour.

European Oak

European Oak is a durable class two hardwood with an attractive grain and should not be confused with American White Oak which is suitable only for internal joinery products.

It is one of the most expensive species to be used for hardwood doors, windows and conservatories but will result in an excellent and long lasting product.

Hardwood Doors - Finished Specification

The very best manufacturers’ paint or wood stain finishes for timber doors are of a very high standard, with each product typically undergoing a four step process.

This includes protection of the end grains, a primer coat applied by flow-coater and two top coats applied by a controlled spray line.

This paint process protects the hardwood doors, windows and conservatories in the following ways: –

• Against harmful ultra-violet rays which can cause greying of the wood

• Against water ingress, but being micro-porous the paint also allows any excess moisture to escape

• Being flexible, the paint is allowed expand and contract naturally with the timber
