Internal oak panel doors or internal oak doors with glass are constructed with dowel joints where the horizontal rails meet the vertical rails, the doors can be cut in height but care must be taken to stay within reasonable tolerances so that the integrity of the doors construction is maintained, the width of each door can be adjusted equally within the thickness of the doors oak lipping material, these oak lippings vary from 6mm thick on the long edges of the door sides to 20mm thick depending on manufacturer.
Oak door sizes:
Our oak internal doors in lots of instances have at least 3 sizes but in most instances we are able to offer a choice of 8 different sizes and two thicknesses including the unusual metric sized oak interior doors.
Interior oak door sizes are varied but include 1981x457mm, 1981x533mm, 1981x610mm, 1981x686mm, 1981x762mm, 1981x838mm and 2032x813mm all of which are 35mm thick, we then have true metric sizes, these are door sizes that are all 2040mm high and are 40mm thick, they include 2040x526mm, 2040x626mm, 2040x726mm, 2040x826mm and in some instances 2040x926mm, fire doors will all be 45mm thick for a 30 minute fire door to 54mm thick for a 60 minute fire rated door.
Oak veneered doors:
All oak veneers are normally colour matched to each door regardless of whether it is an oak front door, Grand Entrance Doors or any other oak entrance doors or or that matter an oak interior door, it is however impossible to guarantee a veneer grain match and colour between different doors, this to be honest is why oak doors are used, the variation of grain simply adds to the beauty of the finished project.
Our options for flush oak doors, oak glazed internal doors and metric sized oak doors is varied, lots of styles and options to suit almost all types of home and location.
Decoration of internal oak doors is varied, we have decorated doors with wax, varnish and Danish oil, the main constraint is in not using wax on a bathroom door or any other room where moisture could penetrate the door, oak veneer doors in these areas should be varnished or have a similar sealed finish including the top and bottom edges.
Oak fire doors are available in a massive range of styles, most of the fire doors are (FD30) 1/2 hour fire rated and there are also numerous prefinished oak doors to choose from, fire doors must have 3 similarly rated hinges, heavier doors may require 4 hinges.
Oak door construction:
The oak exterior doors are constructed in much the same way as the internal oak doors except that they are mostly constructed with Mortice & Tenon joints which is a very traditional construction method, this type of oak door is veneered on a solid core or composite solid core and some customers seem to think they are then cheap oak doors when compared against solid oak doors but this is not the case, it is simply making best use of the oak veneers and ensuring the future for those generations to come. Decoration of external oak doors has to be very thorough and must include all 4 edges of the door being treated to prevent moisture penetration, the use of a canopy or similar construction is recommended.
We have now massively increased our range of not only oak veneer internal doors and exterior Oak Folding Doors but also our range of NuVu Exterior Oak French Doors, lots more to be added including doors with multi pane effects and matching side frames.
All glass in our oak glazed internal doors or our oak exterior doors is to British safety standards regardless of whether the oak doors are single glazed double glazed or triple glazed.
Installation of oak doors:
The choice of fixing screws is important, anything too soft will break, we suggest using the old trade trick of putting some soap on the screws to make them easier to fix, our other suggestion when fitting internal doors is to use 3 hinges for the heavier oak doors and possibly 4 hinges for the external doors especially an oak front door which in all likelihood will get the most use.
There are numerous additions to our Interior Oak Folding Doors and our Oak Room Dividers, various styles and a wide range of sizes and glass types, all well priced and supplied with the frames to match.
Please remember that Oak is a very solid hardwood and needs care when fixing, pre-drilling some fixing holes for any fittings such as letter plates or door numerals etc will help prevent frustration such as screws snapping or nails bending.
