There’s something about simplicity in an internal door that evokes feelings of stability and solidity, which is certainly true of the Wexford Internal Oak Fire Door. Just looking at this FD30 door, you can see it has been constructed with quality and care, without forgetting to create a beautiful product in the same breath. The five vertical panels of open-grain oak veneer are linked by deep v grooves which create an elongating effect, creating height in a room. The unfinished oak on this internal fire door is proven to be a consistently desired look, but remember to treat your contemporary fire doors with a clear matte hardwax oil to ensure it is protected against life’s little accidents and to comply with the warranty.
Constructed from genuine crown cut responsibly sourced American White Oak veneer, this fire rated door is built with safety in mind, which you can feel in the weight of the door and rest easy in the knowledge that this fire door comes with an FD30 rating. This means that the door is guaranteed for a 30 minute burn time. This door is available in the four most popular sizes, including an extra 9mm overall thickness for a fire door compared to a standard internal door, suited to the majority of door openings, but we also offer a bespoke sizing service should you need slightly less common sizes. If you have a trusted carpenter, then they will be able to trim this interior fire door down by 3mm on all sides if it’s just a small adjustment required.
As previously mentioned, your FD30 door will arrive unfinished and will need to be treated in accordance with the very generous 10-year manufacturer’s guarantee, including any trimmings made. If you require any assistance about what to apply to your new modern fire door to get the best finish and protection, feel free to contact our sales team, who will be happy to advise you.
Wooden Product Finishing
Our products are supplied fit for purpose and unfinished (unless a pre-finished door has been ordered). As oak is a natural product, sanding and treating maybe required to achieve the perfect finish. If you have not ordered a pre-finished/treated door then we recommend that quality hardwax oils such as Treatex, Osmo, or Sikkens Polyurethane Varnish are used to seal and protect the goods and to validate your warranty.
All of our doors must be treated before they are hung, not afterwards. It is vitally important not to miss areas where the door has been cut for hinges or any other door furniture as this would allow for moisture to get into the door and spread throughout it.
Applying a stain prior to treating is known to highlight the areas where glue may have spread to the face of the door during manufacturing, particulary where veneers meet. This cannot be claimed for under warranty. A clear, hardwax oil is what should be used. If you would like to apply a stain to a door to acheive a particular finish, we would recommend purchasing a solid oak door instead.
Modern oil finishes are extremely durable and hardwearing, they are very simple to apply and fast drying. Once your appropriate finish has been applied, generally very little maintenance is required. It is always advisable to cover any scratches that may occur over time. The benefit of using hardwax oil is that this is a very simple process of re-applying the finish to the affected area with a cloth.
If you do decide to paint an unfinished oak veneer door then to comply with the door's warranty it must have an undercoat/primer and top coat which is solvent based, not water based.
Storage - Flat and Dry Only
As wood is a natural product it is important that it is stored correctly. We recommend that your new products are stored flat and in a dry area. We recommend that all packaging is kept on the products, or removed for inspection and then re applied for storage. Again as wood is a natural product it is susceptible to changes in each room's atmosphere and as such please be mindful of this and take care to avoid damp areas or newly plastered rooms etc.
This door must be fitted with a minimum of 3 hinges. This is due to the weight of the product, which can be attributed to the high grade materials used in the construction of the door. Choosing to ignore this requirement will void your warranty.
As the door is there for the purpose of safety you should check it regularly to make sure that it still opens and closes properly.
The gaps between the door frame and the door itself should be checked on a regular basis. If you have fitted a fire door to comply with building regulations, it is extremely important that these gaps do not increase in size to the point where they surpass the allowed maximum. Although this is rare, it can sometimes occur on a new home where the house is still settling and the various pressures on the door frame cause it to alter slightly.
Other than regularly checking gaps we advise people to cover up scratches with treatment so that the door is always protected. By using a hardwax oil, any scratches can quickly and easily be covered up.
