Doors for all occasions
Doors are available to suit any requirement in the office environment.
The standard Door sizes are 1981 x 762 x 44mm and 1981 x 838 x 44mm the most popular being specified is 1981 x 838 x 44mm.
These door sizes are based on the old imperial door measurements which is 6ft 6in for the height, which converts to 1981mm metric and the 2ft 6in and 2ft 9in for the width which converts to 762mm and 838mm respectively.
There are also metric doors available which are not often specified but are useful when a little bit extra height or narrower width is required. The standard metric doors sizes are 2040 x 826 x 44mm and 2040 x 926 x 44mm. The 926mm wide door is particularly useful for situations when wider access is required for wheelchair users.
Doors are usually specified at 44mm thick for most office environments, but 54mm thick doors are available for special situations when increased fire resistance is required.
Sometimes, be it for a design requirement or to match existing, there is a need for doors which extend up to the underside of the ceiling, these doors are available from stock at 2700 x 838 x 44mm and 2700 x 926 x 44mm. These doors can be cut down in height to suit any ceiling height below 2700mm.
Special doors for any requirement can normally be produced in almost any size depending upon the frame construction and method used to hang them.
Double doors are manufactured to suit any size required and during construction the door veneers can be matched across both doors.
Following on from the door sizes, there are two main methods of construction for any given door and are described as being either Hollow Core or Solid Core.
Most Hollow Core doors are selected when there is no fire or sound performance required and are ideal for use in the Komfort 600 series when cost considerations are important.
Solid Core doors achieve half hour fire performance when fitted within a suitable frame and can be improved to FD30 performance when fitted with Intumescent strips.
The appearance of any door is dictated by the surface finish chosen which are often real wood veneers with a pre-finished lacquered finish, but can also be laminate or painted.
The veneers available from stock are Ash, White Oak, Sapele, Steamed Beech, Cherry, Maple and American Walnut. The most popular choice from our experience is White Oak.
Doors can also be fitted with glass vision panels which can be a standard size and can be beneficial when the project is on a tight time schedule, or can be any size and shape to suit your design requirements.
Door vision panels will be discussed further in our next blog.
