Timber is a natural product and is subject to humidity and temperature changes. Each door may have slightly different patterns of graining or colour variations. As the timber ages, these colour variations will subside.

The following must be carried out to ensure the best performance from your Deanta door:

Doors must be examined immediately on receipt and prior to installation as claims or faults will not be accepted once the door has been removed from packaging.

Our standard doors have 18mm lippings around the entire door meaning that a total of 32mm can be taken off the width and height in equal amounts on all edges. You can take a maximum of 30mm off our FD30 fire doors.

When fitting our FD30 fire doors please refer to the correct global assessment for correct installation. Our global assessments are available through…

Should this door require alteration, cutting or planning, it must be immediately varnished to
prevent moisture absorption which may lead to warping or splitting.

Separate instructions are available for our folding systems; our folding systems should be fitted by a competent
carpenter/joiner with assistance.

All doors must be measured individually when having glass fitted. Deanta doors are hand-assembled, and as such, we cannot guarantee each aperture is the exact same size. We recommend you use a qualified glass fitter.

This door must be stored horizontally on a clean, dry, flat and level surface. This door must not be fitted in a house that is freshly plastered and doors should only be delivered to site after all wet trades are finished.

To allow this door to acclimatize, it should be left in the house prior to installation for at least 7 days with the ambient
temperature gradually increased over this period.

3 coats of internal wood finish are required on unfinished doors and on any modifications to a prefinished door
including the ironmongery and hinge cut-outs.

We recommend only the use of products for sealing against moisture which are suitable for use on interior joinery doors..


How many hinges would you recommend?
We recommend using 3 hinges per door due to the solid and heavy construction of our doors.
What oil can we use on the doors?
We recommend a few options of oil for your door. Osmo oil, Sikkens polyeutherane interior varnish,
Ronseal and Dulux.
