When installing glass panels in your doors, you’re putting it through stresses that glass in windows doesn’t often have to endure – the door is moved constantly and will often have to resist quite high impacts when a door is slammed. All Statesman Doors’ glazing materials comply with Australian Standard AS1288 (Glass in Buildings – Selection and Installation).
Timber doors provide a beautiful addition to any building or home which can add value and a more natural feel. As with any natural product, however, they require the appropriate care and maintenance if you are to retain their beautiful appearance and trouble free operation. The principal enemy of timber doors is excess exposure to moisture or dryness. We ensure the timber has been prepared correctly at the time of door manufacture, however, we cannot control how the product is stored once it leaves our warehouse and to avoid any subsequent cause for disappointment, we strongly advise the following advice is heeded.
When installing a door, it is best to seek advice from professionals, such as Statesman Doors or the stockist from which you purchased the product – often they will have an installation service or can offer you essential tips to help you to get it right.
