Advantages of specifying timber doorsets

Distinguishing factory machined doorsets from other doors is simple.  The following information demonstrates the key points as to why choosing a complete doorset from a single supplier has an advantage over the inconvenience of door assembly on site using components from multiple suppliers.

  • Reliability of performance – whatever commercial property you are selecting for be it hospitals, schools, houses, hotels or similar, the product installed on site will provide the correct performance for its intended use.  Whether you’re looking to keep premises secure, keep the sound out or keep fire at bay, timber doorsets that have been certified independently and tested for the correct performance is the reliable way to go.
  • Cost – studies have shown that the cost of the total life cycle of a doorset equates to less than the alternative.  The time factor of installation reduces costs due to the products being factory machined and prepared, so there’s no room for error or complicated fitting instructions thus reducing dependence on installer skills.
  • Quality control – all dhf members who manufacture timber doorsets adhere to standards for quality control, this can be ISO 9000 or the dhf factory production control system.  The doorsets that are provided on site are fully engineered doors and frames that are machined in the factory.  These arrive accurately sized and morticed for specified hardware that can be fitted in the factory or on site.
