You never get a second chance to make a first impression. - Will Rogers

One of a kind

As the materials we use for our doors are unique, so will the doors be. Below are listed the standard types of doors, basically separated by installation types.

When specifying any door consideration needs to be given to:

  1. Exposure to weather or use, what will the door have to put up with?
  2. How well sealed does the door need to be for temperature, sound, dust and bugs?
  3. How secure does the door need to be, who needs access and how?
  4. How big does the door need to be? And how best to hang it?
  5. What sort of impression are you going for?
  6. Do you need natural light and ventilation at the doorway?

Typically our doors vary in thickness depending on the application and hardware required. Our barn doors are typically 32mm thick, open frame doors 42 mm thick and Flush panel doors that are hinged are 50mm thick, Pivoted 60mm and extra large pivot doors can be 80mm thick + as needed.

Door Types

Listed Below are the typical types of doors that we make and how we describe them. We have yet to find an opening we can't fit a spectacular door too, so if you have something a bit special in mind, don't hesitate to ask.

Barn Doors

Barn Doors are typically thought of as doors that run on simple bar tracking with exposed wheels as in the images below. The doors used on that track vary from the simple Traditional Ledged Barn door, as in the first image and gets increasingly sophisticated as you add bracing, perimeter frame or cladding as required. These Ledge and Braced doors can be used for lots of applications including shutters, gates, bathroom doors, room dividers and even doors for Barns..... These are solid timber and can be made as rustic or pristine as the situation demands.

Typical Finishes/ looks;

  • Industrial/Rustic
    • Old unfinished timbers with varying degrees of weathering. Brushed and carved as necessary to prevent splinters with potential for exposed bolts and nail holes
    • Finished with Matte Oil or Acrylic 
    • Very Organic and natural, associated with respect for environment, legacy and country values
  • Hamptons 
    • Satin Painted finishes with subtle timber grain showing through so clearly solid timber
    • Can have clear timber or stone highlights/ rub-throughs
    • Structurally over designed to inspire confidence and a respect for classical design setting a context of "old money" and stability
  • Scandinavian  
    • Filled and shaped to the minimum materials required to achieve the need.
    • Sanded and filled to highlight features and finished in Matte oil or Acrylic 
    • Clean and simple, no unnecessary features. Simply filled and sanded with a matte oil or acrylic setting the design context of critical thought and a bit of fun

Barn doors can be made to pretty much any size subject to material availability. Really big doors may need to be assembled on site and may require different sliding systems to take the weight.

Flush Panel Doors

Flush Panel doors (FPD) have planks of solid timber faces fixed to a Cross Laminated Core that depending on application can be solid or incorporate recycled cardboard or polystyrene to reduce the weight.

Our standard FPD's are suitable up to BAL 19 bushfire Zones and with Solid cores can be used up to BAL 40 Bushfire Zones.

Panel Doors

Panel Doors can have Timber, Glass or Metal Inserts doors as needed. The glass or panels can be divided in any direction by an enormous range of mouldings plus the panels can be arranged in any combination. We engineer the timber frames to maximise stability and durability allowing for much thicker and thereby more solid and secure than normal doors.
