We offer three grades of timber - rustic grade, character grade and prime grade - and two types of profile - v-groove and bead and butt - across four different standard size doors:
- 78" x 24" (1981mm x 610mm)
- 78" x 27" (1981mm x 686mm)
- 78" x 30" (1981mm x 762mm)
- 78" x 33" (1981mm x 838mm)
Each standard size cottage door has its specific plank widths which are made up of the following components:
|Door Size ||Plank Configurations |
|1981mm x 610mm ||Four planks all measuring 152mm |
|1981mm x 686mm ||Five planks all measuring 136mm |
|1981mm x 762mm ||Five planks all measuring 151mm |
|1981mm x 838mm ||Six planks all measuring 138mm. |
The doors are constructed using 20mm vertical planks fixed to 20mm x 145mm horizontal ledges. To prevent twisting and bowing, small gaps are left between each vertical plank to allow the door planks to move freely.
All the timber we use is internal grade kiln-dried to a moisture content of between eight % and ten % which makes these products ideal for interior dwellings. It is important to remember that any wet trades must be thoroughly dried out before introducing the doors into the environment as untreated doors will absorb moisture rapidly.
As mentioned previously, there are three types of solid timber grade that we offer:
