STUNNING NATIVE TIMBER DOORS,
-THE NATURAL CHOICE

MODERN TIMBER DOORS

Our S-400 Series of luxurious, engineered timber doors are Passive House accredited. Each door is made bespoke to your aperture size and personal specification. There are three gorgeous timbers available for the external façade of the door: Canadian Red Cedar, Oak and Accoya. The Cedar and Oak are available in 4 different contemporary wood stains.

Accoya is the timber fusion product we carefully researched and tested to create our amazing Shou Sugi Ban doors, where we torch the wood, respecting the ancient Japanese technique known as Shou Sugi Ban. The charred surface is totally impervious to moisture or ultra-violet rays and is around 30% more fire resistant than standard timber.

If you choose our Canadian Red Cedar or Oak doors, they will have that wood both sides of the door, the outerframe will be stained oak.

Shou Sugi Ban doors can either be charred both sides, or charred accoya externally and oak internally. The external frame is clad in a very tactile textured black aluminium to match the pullbar handle.

THE BEAUTY OF 
HIGH PERFORMANCE

THE ARTISTRY OF ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SHOU SUGI BAN – A  STRIKING CHARRED FINISH

Shou Sugi Ban is a traditional method of preserving timber, which is both environmentally friendly and extremely hardwearing, guaranteed to delight for decades.

This labour intensive charring process is highly specialist and for centuries the Japanese have been practicing this art of burning wood to make it resistant to fire, rot, infestation and the UV effects of the sun. The process of charring the timber surface emphasises the richness of the wood species grain structure. The intensity and duration of the burning process produces a different effect each time and no two doors are ever the same.

Only heaving charring is resistant to fading via Ultra-Violet rays and if the surface of our door is damaged after installation, it will not expose any untreated timber that may lead to surface peel or potential decay. Therefore, the only occasional maintenance required is light oiling of the door sash every couple of years (a bit like treating high quality leather), to keep it looking fabulous.

This combination of amazing aesthetics and enduring maintenance-free performance is difficult to eclipse in an external door. Charring is performed by our craftsmen using their hands and eye, so there will be variations of colour and charr across the door slab, which will only add to the unique character of your door.

Great quality

SOLID OAK INSIDE AND OUTSIDE

Our beautiful oak grain doors are superb with a finish carefully stained to bring out the natural colour and structure of the wood. When properly finished and maintained, our oak doors will deliver decades of extremely low-maintenance performance.

REDUCES NOISE POLLUTION

The acoustic performance of our S-400 Series doors is superb at 32 Decibels. We designed the door with a special layer of fibre board within the door leaf, that helps us achieve these stunning performance levels.

Plus, the warm glow and structure of timber in Spitfire doors is superbly complimented by the cool modernity of brushed steel hardware and subtly elegant organic glass sidelights.

CANADIAN RED CEDAR

Our Canadian Red Cedar doors can be stained externally in either Warm Honey, Ash Grey, Carmin Red or Rustic Brown finishes. We also offer a ‘natural’ internal stain (not UV stable).

SUPERB LOOKS, SECURITY A GIVEN

S-400 timber door sashes offer great protection against the elements and unwanted intrusion because they are a substantial 90mm thick. We complement this with high security multi-point locking systems and security key locking barrels. Contemporary looks, great design, excellent weathering protection and excellent security.

All Spitfire S-400 Doors are Passive House compliant and can be fitted with biometric fingerprint access.
