Timber has been used in buildings for decades and is a very popular choice of door material. A timber door will give your home or office a natural, stylish and comfortable finish. The inherent thermal and acoustic properties of timber as a material, makes these door products the best in terms of performance. Although timber does require some care and maintenance in the long run, a high-quality timber door will last a lifetime.
Timber doors supplied by SCS are of highest quality and the latest in design and technology. The stability of our doors will allow you to manufacture in large dimensions (widths and heights). Due to the properties of timber, it is also very customisable, with various shapes and configurations possible. Timber doors can also be made with special beading, glazing/colonial bars and additional trims/accessories to suit your buildings style such as Victorian, Edwardian/Federation, Art Deco, Contemporary etc.
The thickness of the timber door frame is a major factor in determining the thermal and acoustic properties. Sufficient frame thickness provides structural strength, stability and durability. The larger frame depth also allows for thicker glazing units to be fitted (i.e. thicker frame is more suitable for triple glazing). SCS offers a variety of frame thicknesses that differ depending on the door type selected (e.g. single/double doors, lift & slide doors etc.) Different door types will result in different overall frame thicknesses and door panel/lead depths.
Timber doors can be manufactured from a variety of suitable timbers. During the manufacturing process thin wood scantlings of opposing grain orientation are glued together (so called, multi-layer bonding) to achieve a strong, rigid and torsion-free framing system.
We offer many species for our German timber doors, which can be seen below.
All our timber is sustainably sourced and certified. Upon special request, SCS supply Accoya wood, which is created via acetylated wood modification creating a sustainable, non-toxic and wrap-free product.
Our German imported timber doors are completely finished in the factory prior to shipping. Their state-of-the-art manufacturing plants implement machine painting to ensure an even and consistent finish to all items. The timber doors are treated with 2 under coats and 2 top coats to ensure the finish is high quality and the paint/stain absorbed into the timber.
Our range of timber finishes can be accessed via the Downloads tab.
The type of glazing selected for a door can influence the daylight transmission, thermal properties, sound insulation, safety, privacy and security of the whole window unit. It is essential that the glazing type is specified carefully for each project to ensure the end product provides a healthy, comfortable, temperature stable and quiet environment.
To achieve this balance, modern glazing technology has advanced to provide a wide variety of glass types and coatings. Double and triple glazed doors can use these glass types in combination in order to achieve the desired outcome. Double glazing combines two layers of glass, with an insulated spacer in order to increase the thermal insulation of a door. Triple glazing combines 3 layers of glass with two insulated spacers in order to achieve greater thermal insulation.
SCS supplies double and triple glazed doors in a wide variety of shapes and configurations. The shape of the door and opening type can influence the thermal and acoustic insulation, security, safety and structural strength of the door.
Lift & Slide Door
European alternative to a standard sliding door. The moveable panel is lifted by the mechanism when operated. When closed the movable panel is dropped into the track, creating compression on the seals. This system is designed for increased thermal, acoustic and security performance.
The hardware mechanism of the Lift & Slide door allows these doors to be made to extremely large spans in a 2-panel configuration, whilst still allowing smooth and easy operation.
Tilt & Slide Door
Another popular European style opening, where the openable section tilts inwards at the top for ventilation and slides past the fixed panel. When closed the openable section pushes into the seals of the frame, increasing compression on the seals and reducing air penetration.
Single & Double Doors
Standard side hinged doors can be made in inwards or outwards openings. In some materials, these doors can be made with a tilt & turn function in order to provide secure ventilation. Double door openings are commonly used for larger areas, often used as an entry to a terrace, veranda or garden.
Bi-fold doors are folding doors that were originally used as interior doors and furniture doors. Nowadays, they are used as room dividers, especially for large entertainment areas, such as terraces, verandas and balconies. Bi-fold doors are a popular and attractive feature for both high-end residential projects and commercial buildings.
The door security and overall appearance can be greatly influenced by the type and style of hardware used. Mounting a high quality, well finished handle to a door can completely change the design.
SCS supplies a range of handles for all our door systems in standard colours; silver, white, black, brown and bronze.
Flyscreens are an important component of all residential and commercial properties. They are mainly used as a barrier against insects, however with changing technology they can fulfill many other purposes besides preventing the intrusion of insects. Different materials types and configurations can be used for insect prevention (standard flywire), bush fire protection (metal mesh) and security (steel mesh and diamond grill screens).
For door installations, often a custom screen solution is required as every installation is different. SCS has a range of specialised screen contractors to engage, in order to supply a seamlessly integrated and practical screen solution.
There are multiple screen types available to suit door systems. The type of door, location and install conditions will influence the screening option available. The most common types of screens available for doors are hinged security doors (single and double), sliding screen doors (track system) and retractable screen doors.
Glazing bars and colonial bars are an important decorative door feature in many architectural designs. SCS supplies a range of products with glazing bars, colonial bars and glazing separators to suit your needs, whether you are creating a Hampton style home, preserving the character of a Federation style home, matching heritage overlay or enhancing an architectural element.
Glazing bar products are applicable to single, double and triple glazed doors. Glazing and colonial bars are available in all materials types (uPVC, timber, aluminium etc.) and in a variety of profiles and styles to suit your project requirements (e.g. heritage, modern etc.).
