PuraDor+Specialist Doors and Screens
The benefits that having doors pre-hung in frames with relevant hardware morticing works carried out in the factory is increasingly seen as the obvious solution to the demands on contractors. This reduces the labour force required on site, the level of skill required to install, the management resources required to oversee and the installation time required on site. This all helps in projects where programmes are tight and excellence of carpentry works is borne by CNC machinery in the factory which take the onus of responsibility from site level to production level.
Servicing items available:
- Hinges- all types including concealed Tectus and Soss hinges
- Floor springs and pivot accessories
- Concealed jamb and overhead door closers
- Flush bolts
- Mortice locks, latches, and card access control lockcases

Doors can be delivered in their frames for simple quick installation or as often required, frames can be delivered ahead of doors so surrounding trades can continue, doors are delivered later and fixed into the prepared frames reducing the risk of damage to doors by arriving late on in the project.
The balance of ironmongery where not installed to the doors is packed according to schedules in doorsets boxes , labelled and delivered to site for easy access and installation by the carpentry team.
The core construction consists of three layers of cross banded lamels contributing to exceptional dimensional stability. The core construction includes a concealed framing to all four edges with the top and bottom framing elements tongue and groove jointed to the core structure.
The core material consists of a light weight fast growing tropical hardwood of approx. 300Kgs/m3 density.
Blank assemblies have been subjected to Soak Delaminating Tests and are suitable for
external use, subject to the application of suitable finishing systems.
To cover and protect the door core material, edges are applied with a hardwood lipping, which is usually 7mm thick. There are two main types of lippings known as concealed or exposed:
‘Concealed’ – The more general detail in edge lipping doors. The door core is cut and the lipping is fixed by high pressure bonding. The door facings are then applied concealing the edges of lipping’s
‘Exposed’ –This option is often used where corners of doors maybe subjected to more impact and therefore chances of damage are reduced or where an alternative finish can be used to create a visual contrast.
The timber for the core is harvested from forests that are managed to provide for forestation under the control of an ISO14001 Environmental Management System supported by chain of custody certification.
The core framing material is made up of mixed tropical hardwoods of approx. 480Kgs/m3 density. The framing is finger jointed to make economical use of timber from other processes that would otherwise be wasted.
