Doorset production, from start to finish, will be carried out in house right down to face and frame finishes.


Core Materials

Door Cores:

We have chosen to work closely with two door cores manufacturers who manufacture cores to separate BM Trada Q-Mark accreditation, as this allows us to offer a wide range of products and finishes meaning we have a core suitable for all environments

Particleboard cores are built up from a unique 3 layer particleboard specifically designed for their purpose using a combination of chemical and engineering development.  These particleboard cores form quality doors for a wide range of environments to meet all budgets
