Solid timber hardwood doorsets from Longden come in a number of different styles and constructions to suit luxury hotels, heritage and conservation buildings, as well as modern contemporary homes and commercial offices. The range includes the traditional and contemporary styles below that can be produced in either the Sheraton, Hepplewhite, Chippendale or Copeland styles but, as a bespoke manufacturer, Longden has the ability to create virtually any other style and design. All doors incorporating glass will be factory glazed. Many glazed styles can be certificated with up to 60 minutes fire resistance.

Single doors or pairs of doors can be supplied for either single or double action, as well as other configurations for bespoke designs. We encourage an early involvement with specifiers to help develop their designs to meet all performance and aesthetic requirements.

The majority of the door styles can offer the following performance characteristics:

Fire: Non-rated, FD30 and FD60
Acoustics: 18, 28, 30 or 38RwdB

Panel Types

  • Sheraton

    Sheraton flat panel doorsets offer the perfect combination of classic contemporary styling and high quality traditional construction. The flat panels within the Sheraton range are manufactured from high performance materials, selected to suit particular applications. The flat panels are tongued into grooves within the framings; they are typically 13mm thick for FD30 doors and 26mm for FD60. These dimensions represent the minimum needed to achieve fire resistance but other panel thicknesses can be supplied.

    Combinations

    Typical combinations of Sheraton flat panels using profile moulds, applied mouldings and panel beads.

  • Hepplewhite

    The Hepplewhite panel is available in 32mm or 45mm thick panels, with the gap between the panels, stile and rails of the door being 10mm. The 45mm thick panels are the same width as the door itself – providing a sleek flush finish. Additionally, the Hepplewhite can be specified with glazed panels - adding that extra bit of light into a room – as well as being available in a variety of FSC accredited hardwoods including European Oak, Rock Maple and American Black Walnut.

  • Chippendale

    Typically raised and fielded Chippendale panels are constructed from timber. The panels are tongued into grooves within the framings; they are typically 32mm thick for non-rated and FD30 doors and 45mm thick for FD60.

  • Copeland

    Add a contemporary touch to traditional raised and fielded panel constructions with the Copeland panel incorporating a square shoulder or splay profile. As with the Chippendale panel construction, the panels are tongued into grooves within the framings; they are typically 32mm thick for non-rated and FD30 doors and 45mm thick for FD60.

Door Components

Flat Panel or Raised and Fielded

All Longden panel styles are traditionally constructed with solid timber stiles, rails and muntins. All main joints are through mortice and tenon, wedged joints using a waterproof adhesive for maximum durability. Framing members can be moulded on the edges adjacent to the panel or applied mouldings added. Unless otherwise specified, finished sizes for framing members will be as below: wherever possible, these should be regarded as minimum dimensions for all doors to avoid any possible fire certification problems.

Applied Mouldings

Applied mouldings can be added to provide extra details to panels either flat or raised and fielded.

There are two types of applied mouldings, bolection or bed. Both can be used in conjunction with square profile moulds.

Please note Longden can also replicate existing mouldings where there is a construction requirement

Profile Moulds

In addition to door style and panel type, the visual characteristics of a panelled door are also determined by any profile mould applied to panel edges of framings. Typical mouldings are shown below and, if no other type is specified, Ovolo is supplied as the standard profile.
