Supplier of bespoke doors

Recommended Posts

NThe ground floor of my new build is higher than average and the internal door openings are correspondingly higher.

 

I have 2 sets of double doors leading off the hallway and one single door between the utility and kitchen. The height of the opening on these is 2300mm rather than the standard 2100mm. It looks like I need to order doors to be made to size as I don't want to pack down the opening and lose the additional height as this will throw off the proportions of the rooms.

 

Does anyone have any suggested suppliers of internal door suppliers who offer bespoke sizes?

915x2134 is a standard size, so with a lining, top and bottom gaps you would be packing around 90mm which doesn't seem too much..?

Thanks, Peter. I confess to being a complete ignoramus when it comes to door sizes, especially if it's not in the Howdens catalogue!

I last used a firm call Ahmarra who manufacture doors and doorsets in Portsmouth  They can do any size you like.

If you are anywhere near Newark or Sleaford then pop in to see Gordon ar Black Mill doors and reclamation. He does some nice oak Doors,  but you'll lose hours chatting to him!

In our last house we used fire blanks which had a nice swing weight & were cheap. We just had them trimmed to size, I'd use them again, but with edging strips.

I'm giving this thread a bump as I may have found a solution for over height doors.

I've gone through loads of suppliers recently and struggled to find anyone who will supply over height doors at a decent price and lead time. One quote came in at 4k for a set of double doors snd one single with side lights. Outrageous! Especially with a 12 week lead time.

Anyhow, I'm putting in an enquiry tomorrow to a Dutch supplier - 2315mm is a standard and widely stocked door height over there - the Dutch are tall! Hopefully, they will ship to the UK and I'll get my doors at a reasonable price in a few weeks.

I will confirm once I know whether they ship to the UK.  If they don't, I'm sure I'll find one as I have a number of Dutch friends who are happy to do a bit of research for me over the other side of the channel.

 

Do you need over height doors, Dave?

To me 2040mm is "over height"  I wish I had noticed before I plasterboarded that 2040mm height cuts your choice in half and adds to the cost.

I found plenty of doors with 2040 mm as a height option.  Sadly, I'm after 2300 or thereabouts, which is nigh on impossible here, it seems.

 

Check out Todd Doors - lots of choice in that height and at reasonable prices.

Yup. About 12 weeks lead time and 400+ per door.

Try ahmarra.co.uk who are based in Portsmouth. They make to measure. Oak veneered fire doors about £145 plus VAT. They also do doorsets. We had solid oak frames and linings but this was £250 extra.
