This ensures your doors will not 'twist' or 'bow'.

When trimming an internal or an external door, it may be reduced by a maximum of 6mm on all 4 edges:
The reductions should be split equally from each edge, i.e. to reduce the door width by 12mm, remove 6mm from each side of the door.

Certified U-Values are available for the majority of Door Station's Door sets These U-Values have been determined by Chiltern Dynamics, an independent UKAS accredited testing laboratory. External doors sold separately are available with indicative U-Values only. These indicative U-Values are based upon information from BRE 443 2006 Edition: Conventions for U-Value Calculations, produced by the Building Research Establishment Limited.
When the doors are manufactured they have controlled moisture content, the above mentioned treatments will not seal the moisture content into the door and will therefore allow moisture ingress or loss to occur causing the door to either swell or shrink. Only a fully paint finish (primer, undercoat & gloss) or high performance wood stain/lacquer should be used.
Our doors are of a cassette construction therefore they are built around the glass. Because of this there are no loose beads. We do not have replacement glass.
It is possible for the vertical glazing bars to be tapped back into line, they are dry set into the door and could move in transit.
Flat Glass: 4mm approx
• Bevelled Glass: 6mm approx
• Double Glazed: 14mm approx
• Tripled Glazed: 18mm approx
Door Station do not give out glass sizes for the reason that the measurements could be taken down or given incorrectly.

Providing the doors are in stock (Over 95% of our products are) and you order before 12pm, delivery will take 3-5 working days unless otherwise stated – we will call you to arrange a convenient time.
Pre-finished doors have been factory finished with clear AC lacquer meaning you don't need to do anything to them unless trimming is required – you will need to use a clear varnish on these edges after fitting for the guarantee
• Unfinished means the doors will come raw so treatment is required. Please refer to Q6. For information on how to finish
Providing they are in good working order, there is no reason you can't use your existing handles, hinges and latch. Just make sure the hinges haven't been painted over and they are of a decent quality – it is more than likely that your new door will be heavier than you doors being replaced so hinges with steel washers are a good idea.
What is Paint ‘N’ Peel® Paint ‘N’ Peel® is a system designed to make sealing, staining or painting your door a quick and easy procedure.
• Step One: Paint or stain the door as directed by the finishing instructions. The film over the glass protects against streaks, runs or splashed.
• Step Two: When the finish is complete, simply, by using a craft knife, cut around the glass aperture ensuring the masking film is cut in the corners.
• Step Three: Peel off the film from the glass surface—leaving a smooth edge to the finish, and pristine glass.
All our hardwood and pine doors have a 10 year Manufacturers Defect Guarantee, so if you are offered an alternative door, check to see if the retailer can match this offer.
All the glass in our doors (with the exception of our traditional leaded light designs) is rated to BS6206, the standard for toughened glass in the UK.
No, rebating doors into a pair would require more than the 6mm allowance you get on each edge of our internal oak doors. We recommend you use a pair maker – you will find them here, in 'Other Joinery Products' (Link)
Our pair makers are 10mm thick. Please consider this when measuring up for internal door pairs.
All time scales are accurate providing your order is in stock. If, in the unlikely event, it is out of stock, you will be contacted and informed immediately.
Oak and pine are two different kinds of wood, not just in species, but also in density and grain patterns. Pine has a straight grain pattern with swirls of brown against an amber background. Oak is more consistent with fewer defects but colours and grains can vary from door to door.
