Hazlemere’s Century timber front doors have an engineered solid core which is made up of 3mm layers known as lamels, with 1 in 4 lamels orientation being reversed (turned opposite way) as wood naturally moves along the grain, stopping movement. Consequently Hazlemere’s high end engineered timber doors cannot bow, and as such are guaranteed no more than 1mm movement per square metre.
These Hazlemere Century timber front door are edged or lipped on all sides with Sapele hardwood, which is an African wood known for density and stability from the Gaboon Tree, so ideal for fixing hinges due to better screw retention, allowing these doors to remain rigid and square.
Hazlemere’s engineered timber front doors have Tricoya facings with 100% density, which is a man-made, acid treated product – bathed in acid to draw out water. Tricoya is not widely used due to being very cost prohibitive. Even without any paint Tricoya will protect (though won’t look great) the door sash. The Farrow and ball microporous paint finish lets the wood to breath or allows air transfer (anything else acts like deodorant stopping the wood from breathing, causing rot). Each Century timber door has four coats of paint applied to it – equivalent to ten brushed coats. The bottom of each door is also painted for protection.
The doors come with a choice of UPVC outer-frame and a 44mm deep engineered timber door sash or a 54mm deep sash with an outer-frame that has a 3mm thick aluminium sub-frame faced with Sapele hardwood cladding caps in the exact same matching Farrow and Ball paint colour that is on the door sash.
Each engineered timber door sash has a combination of a solid engineered core, Sapele mahogany lipping and Tricoya facings provide a stable, hard-wearing, water resistant door in 21 stunning colours from fiery reds to cool blues and all the shades in between. Dual colour paint finishes are available from Hazlemere Doors at no extra cost.
Century timber front doors offer three individual door furniture ranges to choose from that include: handles, knockers, letterboxes and centre door pulls, plus there are more than 28 elegant glazing styles available on the door styles that offer double glazing as part of the door design.
The unique construction of a Century door provides an incredibly strong defence for your home. As beautiful as a traditional timber door can be, wood in its purest form, is not the best material for this application. All of the inherent problems usually experienced have been “designed out”, leaving you with no yearly maintenance, no warping and twisting, no draughts caused by shrinkage, no rotting and deterioration, no weather penetration, no unstable timbers and no flaking and cracking.
