Without the need to redecorate, replace carpets or skirting, five Iconic Intelligent Doorsets have been fitted in just one working day into a prestigious, traditional-style property in rural Essex. With a brief to replace existing, poor quality doors with the minimum of disruption to the décor and structure – not to mention a busy, working family – the makeover to the ground floor rooms took just eight working hours by an experienced carpenter.
doorsets are made from engineered, 100% FSC Pure certified solid timber that achieves enhanced durability, strength and stability, and results in a superbly finished appearance. The timber is specially treated to reproduce the beautiful rich, deep colours of traditional hardwood without the use of these increasingly rare natural resources. The bespoke colour matching service replicates exact timber finishes and in this Essex project, a perfect mahogany appearance has been achieved on the imposing Venezia doorsets, one of five door design groups in the Iconic range.
Of exceptional quality and value for money, all doorsets are supplied fully factory finished with no on-site cutting out or finishing required. “The Iconic Intelligent Doorset allows the homeowner and the developer to specify fantastic doors that create a real design statement. They can be installed with minimum disruption, in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the price,” says Chris Wood, Director, Iconic Internal Doors.
Speed of installation dramatically reduces on-site labour. All frame and architrave joints are accurately prepared to enable the linings to snap into place without mechanical fixing or unsightly pinholes. The Iconic knot free frames are rebated to accept the matching architrave as opposed to the traditional door-lining-and-stop that are traditionally put together on-site. The Iconic door frame is factory fitted with a soft performance seal that reduces closing noise and provides excellent sound and draft insulation. Premium quality designer hardware comes as standard in a choice of contemporary and traditional styles and finishes.
