After completing a set of automated gates for one happy customer we were asked to produce a front door for the same project.
Our customer required a copy of a front door design that they had found online. These unusual doors were very popular in the 1930’s and examples still survive today in period properties.
As a bespoke joinery shop and not only gate makers we set about drawing up the design proposal using autoCad not only as a sales aid, but also to assist in the setting out prior to manufacture.
These doors are manufactured by laminating sections of timber to cut the elliptical aperture from.
The door construction goes through many stages including the production of curved mouldings, beads and laminated hardwood panels.
Although a period design we were able to fit a modern multi point locking system so that the door would conform to modern insurance criteria and provide more than ample security for our client.
In addition to the bespoke wooden door design we were able to recommend a glazier to produce a unique piece of stained glass to finish the door off.
The door was later spray painted white prior to being delivered for installation.
