Elite Doors



ELITE TIMBER DOORS  The flawless face of all our solid core doors is Pacific Hemlock, a knot free and ecologically sustainable timber from British Columbia that has been specially chosen for its stunning appearance and outstanding performance properties. They are built to an uncompromising level of excellence that ensures they retain their correct shape and aesthetic beauty year after year. The core of all stiles and rails in our frames are made from Paulownia, a timber which boasts the highest strength to weight ratio of any wood in the world. This highly durable, knot free plantation hardwood is renowned for its excellent dimensional stability and sound absorption properties. Glazed doors are supplied with 5mm toughened glass.

INSTALLATION AND CARE OF DOORS

INSTALLATION:    Always check the size of doors prior to installation. It is advisable to make door jambs approximately 6mm wider than the door to allow for hinges and paint. Most doors will need trimming to suit door jambs as most jambs are not square or level. Doors can be planed or machined by up to 10mm on all sides without affecting the integrity, strength and proportions of the door.

SEALING OF DOORS:    Doors should be sealed with primer, undercoat or polish on ALL surfaces ESPECIALLY the top and bottom edges immediately after removing the plastic shrink wrap. Doors should then be hinged, hung and planed if necessary to fit jambs. The door should then be removed from the jamb for touch up of primer, final painting or polishing coats. After this the door can be rehung on jambs.

PAINTING OR POLISHING OF DOORS:    AVOID dark colour paint on exterior doors directly exposed to harsh sunlight as this will put stress on the door and will void warranty. Oil stains or any stain that has black in it creates a splotchy effect on the door grain which may look unsightly.

HELPFUL HINTS
On preparing your door for staining or painting

Sand the door with 150 grit sand paper, lightly sanding along the direction of the grain removing any glue residue where the horizontal timber rails meet the vertical rail joints.
Sand beading and remove putty residue from nails or brad holes.
Remember, do not sand across the grain as this will scar the timber surface.
For staining, go over the door once more with 220 grit sand paper lightly sanding in the direction of the grain.
Remember, clear lacquer or varnish will highlight colour variations, blemishes and putty marks, so speak our staff about your best options.
If applying any number of coats of lacquer or paint, always lightly sand between coats for best results.
