We can help:
At Direct Doors, we know oak doors like the back of our hands, and on this page we’ll help you select the ideal product to suit your style and budget. Over our 30 years in the business of sourcing and installing doors, and having met and advised countless customers, we’ve learned that the choice of door more often comes down to quality and style, rather than price.
But if you’re looking for the right oak door at the right price, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ll guide you through the process of choosing a new oak folding door, helping you find a size and style that complements your existing or desired décor.
All of the oak panel doors and oak doors with glass are veneered on a solid core of either laminated timber, or a composite material. This allows us to make better use of the world’s timber resources in a responsible manner.
And wherever possible, we will supply FSC registered sustainable timber products.
The oak veneer is of the highest quality, and to a thickness that complies with industry standards. These veneers are matched within a door, but the obvious attraction of an oak door is its own distinctive grain, which offers a beautiful contrast when installed within your home or office.
Oak door sizes:
The interior oak doors available in the categories displayed on this page come in a range of sizes.
Just a reminder: The doors that are 2040mm in height are 40mm thick.
Door types and Construction:
All internal oak folding doors are fitted with solid oak edges, allowing you some adjustment for onsite fitting to your existing door openings.
Measuring and Fitting:
Oak internal folding doors can be fitted with two hinges, as you would with virtually all types of internal doors, but we do tend to suggest that three hinges be used due to the weight of the door.
You should also be aware that oak veneered doors can be very difficult to screw into - please try and use a small pilot hole, or add a little bit of soap to the screw thread, to make the screw go into the timber that little bit easier.
Unfinished door advice: The decoration of solid or veneered oak doors is a crucial step in bringing the grain to life.
The very best finish, in our opinion, is a satin finish varnish, or a clear wax. If you opt for wax, be sure not to use it on the inside of wet rooms or bathrooms. Use a clear varnish instead, and remember to seal the top of all oak doors properly so as to avoid moisture penetration.
Note: We do not recommend using anything but very fine sandpaper or wire wool for very light hand sanding only. Try and fold the sandpaper over and use the thicker folded edge in the same direction as the grain. The folded edge is less likely to get under any heavier parts of the veneer and cause a splinter.
Completing the look you’re after for your home or office often means going beyond selecting the right internal oak door. There’s an attention to detail that comes with choosing the perfect handles, hinges, and locks; one that can make or break the final touches to an interior design project.
We boast an expansive range of door furniture, from antique-style handles and fittings that will accentuate the grandeur of a traditional internal door, to modern, contemporary handles that will complement your sleek, chic interior.
Please do not arrange any tradesman until the goods have arrived, been checked over for damages and are suitable for installation as you intended, courier delays due to illness, traffic issues or product damages can also impact on your arrangements. Wood products will have a naturally occurring grain, this will vary regardless of veneer type, this is the beauty of wood. We cannot be held liable for any consequential costs should you arrange an early installation or whether the courier is delayed and lastly if the grain is wavy / straight and not to your liking.
