About this door
The Marlborough 2 panel door offers a sharp and minimalist look to a popular contemporary theme.
In a 'shaker' style, meaning that the door is built around the panels, this door caters for those who aren't keen on fussy and more intricate traditional designs by providing a clean flat panel which doesn't need to be held in place by a decorative moulding or beading.
With a smaller lower panel and a larger upper, this suits a myriad of interior design ideas and fits well with a range of decorative options.
A complimentary fire door and glazed door options allow you to complete the look throughout the property.
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!
