Oak external doors
Our Oak external doors are a solid 44mm thick construction. They have an engineered core of solid block and particleboard. This is then overlaid with the finest quality oak veneers. There is a part L option for increased heat insulation and a Part L glazed option also.
Benefits of an Engineered External Door
Against traditional single timber doors, engineered external doors have a number of great benefits. Traditional timber doors will often warp, move and expand and contract in the weather. External doors are particularly susceptible having one internal warm face and another external cold face. The jointed single members will pull away from each other.
Engineered doors are made up of various constituent parts bound together under extreme heat. This ‘core’ is then covered in high grade veneer. In this way the components of the door hold together to form a solid body which resists movement, warping and expansion.
Installation and Care
Always employ a qualified joiner to install your new door. We recommend four hinges for external doors and good solid locking mechanisms. Also, your door should be hung in a sound fitting, hardwood, external grade frame. Your external door becomes immediately exposed to UV rays and the weather from the moment it is hung. All external doors need good quality weather proof paints or treatments to preserve them through the extremes of the British climate.
