External Panel Doors
The not so humble panel door, the most traditional style of door in the UK.
The standard panel doors have what is know as "Raised & Fielded" (R&F) panels as shown below, this is when the panel is shaped on all four edges and on both sides, the best way to describe it is as a bevel, the moulding that is machined as one with all sections of timber rails and stiles is known as "Ovollo".

We are also capable of supplying made to measure doors with this type of (R&F) panel or with other types of panel such as a flat panel with a "Bolection" moulding shown below, a bolection moulding is a moulding which is additional to the panel and is then fixed around the panel on all edges where it meets the door rails etc, the image below is a rather elaborate example of the "bolection" mouldings uses.

Following on from above and generally speaking, a large mouding is fitted on the external face of each panel and a smaller shaped moulding is fitted around the internal face of each panel....however, when manufacturing a door we can also take the opprotunity to use an "Ovollo" moulding which is machined "as one" with the rails and vertical stiles that form the actual door, this Ovollo moulding is on the inside of the door when fitting bolection mouldings externally.
At the end of the day, whatever is required can be manufactured by us, we simply need to discuss what you prefer and more precisely what age your home is so we can help you make an informed judgement on the type of panel door required.
