Fitting internal doorkits is now even easier thanks to the new ready fit doorkit guide from JELD-WEN. The guide gives step by step instructions on fitting any standard JELD-WEN moulded or internal veneer door, which should take no more than 20 minutes from start to finish.

“We’ve given the 20 minute challenge to lots of installers and contractors and had great results,” explains Mark Roberts, product manager from JELD-WEN. “Our doorkit helps reduce installation time by half as well as giving a better quality fit and finish.”

Internal doorkits are growing in popularity with housebuilders, as Mark Roberts explains: “The benefits of doorkits are being widely recognised on site. Housebuilders find they help with the skills shortage as they are quick and easy to fit and assure a superior installation, which is increasing customer satisfaction.”

JELD-WEN internal doorkits have a solid fixing system through the lining into the core of the wall, which allows for the fitting of a fire door or other heavy core door. Interlocking mechanical joints also enable a tight accurate fit to the architrave system, which enables adjustment for minor variations in position.

All doorkits also feature a symmetrical design, allowing for handings to be decided on site, with all machining ready prepared and finished to a high quality standard. The design of the architrave and doorstop enables the fittings and screwheads to be concealed, giving a superior finish and eliminating the need for filling afterwards. This ensures minimal preparation and saves time on final decoration, in line with NHBC recommendations.

Internal doorkits come primed, ready for final fitting on site. JELD-WEN also offers moisture resistant linings and architraves in standard sizes.
