Fire doors are built to withstand the effects of lire for periods of half, one or two hours depending on where the door is to be used. You may have to fit one to comply with the Building Regulations for example, if you build a garage on to your house, any door connecting the house to the garage must have at least half an hour's fire resistance. A fire-resisting door should protect against smoke as well as checking the movement of the fire. The doors are commonly referred to by their fire performance - a 30/30 door or a 30/20 door, for instance. Fire-resisting doors are usually flush doors formerly with plasterboard or asbestos cores but nowadays increasingly with flaxboard or chipboard cores. They should be fitted in fire-resisting frames and usually need to be self-closing.
If you're choosing interior doors for a more contemporary scheme, you'll find them in cherry, poplar, oak, hickory or walnut, among other woods. Many home builders are opting to use materials other than wood, though, and glass or metal doors are also popular. The style of the door should complement the style of your decor, experts agree, and you'll find such a variety of styles that choosing interior doors for your home may be almost mind-boggling. The various standard styles include those with two to eight panels, raised or flat panels, and French door styles. Add to those cafe doors, bi-fold doors, bypass doors and pocket doors, and you'll have a wide variety of interior doors to choose from for your new home.
The framed, ledged-and-braced door is used in situations where strength is required but the physical appearance of the door is not of prime importance garage doors, stormdoors, outbuildings and gates are examples. The door consists of a frame held together with mortise-and-tenon joints. Diagonal braces are inserted inside the frame to prevent the door sagging and a panel of matchboarding runs from the top to the bottom of the door. The bottom rail is 30 to 40mm above the bottom of the door to help make fitting easy over uneven ground and to lessen the risk of the door being severely weakened by rot. As these doors are usually manufactured from softwood, they should be painted regularly or treated with a preservative stain particularly when the door is used outside.
There are many ways the design of your garage door can complement that of your home. The size and direction of door sections can match or contrast with that of the home's siding. The presence of windows in the garage door will fit well into a home with numerous windows. Design patterns can be simple and elegant or intricate and complex.
