XL Joinery  Dowelled Hardwood doors are manufactured using dowelled joints, a process where two pieces of timber are connected and joined using fluted dowels and modern adhesives.

 

X L Joinery Mortice & Tenon doors are made using traditional Mortice & Tenon joints a process where the timbers that are being  joined are machined to slot together to generate a very strong and secure joint . This ensures that the doors are constructed to the very highest standard. Panels with the external doors are set in waterproof mastic giving a very high level of weatherproofing.

 

Q2. What timbers are used whjen making XL Joinery Doors? 

Hardwood - Red Hardwood

 

Pine - Radiata/ Elliotti

 

Oak - American Oak (for doors) & Malaysian Oak (for frames)

For environmental reasons and to increase the stability and performance of the XL Joinery Internal doors, they may have engineered timber parts including laminated Timber, MDF or Particleboard.

 

Q4. What is the maximum I can trim my XL Joinery Internal door?

You can trim your internal door by a maximum of 12mm in width and height, however any reduction in size must be split equally from each side, so if you are reducing the width of your door by 12mm you must trim 6mm off each side.   

Q5. What is the maximum I can trim my XL Joinery External Door?

You can trim your external door by a maximum of 12mm on each side, top and bottom. However the reduction in size must be split equally from each side, so if you are reducing the width of your door by 24mm you must trim 12mm off each side or top and bottom.

Internal Stain: Use a high quality interior stain or lacquer with a minimum of 3 coats 

  

External Paint: Apply a coat of primer and undercoat finished with at least 3 coats of topcoat

 

External Stain: Use a High performance stain or lacquer with a minimum of 3 coats 

It is important that any apertures cut into the door are sealed with your chosen finish, this includes under hinges, door furniture and especially inside letter box holes cut into the door. Ensure the tops and the bottoms of the door are thoroughly coated and sealed before installation.

Q8. What is the U-Value of a specific external door?

Certified U-Values are available for the majority of XL Joinery Doorsets. 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.

 

Q9. Why can't I use wax, teak oil or varnishon my XL Joinery Door?

Oiles, waxes and varnishes do not seal the door thoroughly and will allow moisture to ingress into the timber of your door, making it move and potentially delaminating the the real timber veneer from the core of the door. Only use high quality performance Stains, Lacquers and paint processes described above. 

Q10. Can I replace a broken piece of glass in my XL Joinery Internal and external doors?

XL Joinery doors are manufactured around the glazing panel so there are no loose glass beads that can be removed to replace the glass. You can router the retaining bead off of one side of the door, remove and replace the broken glass and then acquire a matching bead and secure the glass into place.

Q11. I've received my door and the glazing beads are out of line, what can I do to put it right?

The vertical glazing bars can be tapped back into line, these are dry set into the door and could move in transit.

 

Q12. How thick is the glass in an XL Joinery Door?

Flat Glass: 4mm approx

 

Bevelled Glass: 6mm approx

 

Double Glazed: 14mm approx

 

Tripled Glazed: 18mm approx

 

Q13. Why can't you give out the size of the glass opening in a door?

Although every door is manufactured to given measurements we do allow tolerances in glazing apertures, therefore we recommend you wait until your door arrives and take measurements for the glass then to ensure the glass fits first time.

 

Q14. My Obscure glass has clear patches on it, what can I do?

This effect is usually caused by a substance "filling in" the glass etching and turning it almost transparent, usually caused by silicone. It can be removed with white sprits and vigorous rubbing of the transparent patch. Once the white sprit as been applied, leave to dry and the glass should become obscured again.

 

Q15. What is the Fire Rating for my XL Joinery Door?

Only doors specified as "Fire Doors" on our website have a fire rating of 30 minutes or classed as (FD30). Any other door not specified as a Fire Door FD30 is not fire rated
