Wood doors allow for broad design flexibility and function but present unique considerations for longevity, installation, and safe operation for the end user.
Operating Method: Consider the factors for deciding on vertical and horizontal openings for wood garage doors.
Design & Engineering: Design wood doors based on operation, opening size and clearances, numbers of slabs or section, and hardware requirements to meet both aesthetics and safe, long-term use.
Strength & Longevity: Choose the right wood species, frame components and joinery for a stable, secure door with the right finishes and recommend a maintenance schedule to ensure a long life for a custom wood door.
Installation & Safe Operation: Prepare openings for successful installations and customize operations for various tracks to ensure safe and controlled operation.
