About this door
The Internal Oak Galway is a modern and stylish design that suits both contemporary and traditional applications.
An attractive boarded design to both faces of the door, these doors are a popular option for those looking to bring a sophistication to their interior design.
With 18mm Solid Oak lippings, not only are these doors sturdy but they are also easier to modify for awkward openings.
These larger lippings also give the benefit of allowing these doors to be rebated to create a door pair.
Supplied unfinished, these doors are able to take a stain or paint finish. Our recommendation for a natural, clear finish would be to use a Treatex Hardwax Oil, which is available from the "Stains, Paints and Finishes" section of our website.
On this product, there is also an option for the door to be supplied pre-finished by our french polisher. If you select this option, your door will be supplied pre-finished to a professional standard.
Your door will be pre-sanded with 180 grit sandpaper before being sprayed with a base coat of A/C lacquer. When dry, the door is then "de-nibbed" by hand and sprayed with further top coats of A/C lacquer, specially formulated for doors and internal joinery.
This achieves a great looking semi-matt finish which is resistant to knocks and finger marks and is smooth to the touch.
Selecting this option will add approximately a week to any estimated lead time.
The correct storage, fitting, and finishing of your new doors are very important factors in getting the best out of your purchase.
We would always recommend reading our Door Care information which can be viewed by clicking here, along with any additional manufacturer's documentation supplied with the door itself.
These doors are manufactured using laminated veneered lumber (LVL). LVL or more commonly known as “engineered timber” is a modern method of construction that is economical with the use of natural timber resources.
The main parts & rails of the door are usually constructed using solid strips/blocks of timber (some internals may contain a laminated board and/or particleboard), which are then glued and then clamped together.
They are then faced with a veneer and edged with a solid timber “lipping”. The benefits of using engineered construction doors over more traditional methods are that it is far more unlikely to twist or split (we do not get problems with panels splitting) and possibly the most important reason is that it is much more eco-friendly!
