Our doors are built to a standard width varying between 95 and 105 cm. Doors come complete with wooden thresholds and door frames.
We have a selection of external door styles but they are all made of planed and rebated oak planks, the planking held in place with nailed horizontal bars.
Our external doors can be supplied with security bars if required.
We also stock panelled internal doors, made of quality oak.
Our doors have heavy-duty fittings, are fitted with hand-crafted sturdy iron hinges, as shown here, and can be fitted with a variety of latches either of wood or wrought iron.
For the security-conscious, locks are an optional extra although your external door can easily be barred from inside to repel intruders: a full range of iron security bars and fittings is available on request.
Our window shutters will keep out the draughts.
We have a range of window shutters as well as full-height shutters that can be installed at the front of your shop or workshop. These can be either folded back or lifted out. See also our half doors.
Doors rarely survive burial except in wet conditions. Two whole doors and the remains of an internal door have been excavated from Roman London and reconstructions are shown here. Some shops and workshops had no front wall which indicates removable shutters that opened onto the street. Many locks and keys have been found, although not associated with doors directly, but the number of examples indicates that Roman Londoners were very security conscious.
