Vertical or horizontal boarding
With boarded doors both vertically and horizontally boarded styles are generally constructed using 45mm thick x 108mm* (minimum) wide stiles and top rails, and a concealed middle rail. For vertical boarded doors a concealed bottom rail can be provided. Boards are solid, tongued and grooved with ‘V’ or square joints, and laid out to give equal board widths to suit the door size. Boarded doors will generally be manufactured from Tulipwood for paint finish. A full range of timbers are available and a variety of finishes can be applied.
Boarded doors are available non-rated or certificated for 30 minutes fire resistance, including FD30S for restricted smoke leakage. Glazed apertures can be incorporated with sizes to suit modules of whole board widths, with glass retained by a glazing bead.
*For FD30 stiles and top rails are 45mm thick x 108mm wide minimum.
Note: Longden does not recommend the use of oak for external boarded doors.
