Here is a selection of some of our most FAQs.
  How are doors manufactured?
A 60mm subframe of MDF which allows trimming of up to 25mm per side and an extra high density polystyrene core for insulation giving six times the insulation value of a traditional interior door and improved impact resistance. The doors are finished using a 1mm UPVc plastic coating on either side. The 35mm sides of the door can either be edgebanded using white plastic or edgetrimmed by using a central groove in the door and a capped strip. The edgetrim can be flat or rebated; the rebated one will facilitate the hinge without the need for cutting out. Lock blocks are fitted centrally to both sides of the door, this eliminates potential mis-fitting of latches and other hardware.
