Storage and handling
Doors should be stored and handled as prescribed in the BS Code of Practice BS 8000 Part 5 1990.
Doors should be laid flat on three equal thickness bearers located along the door length to evenly distribute weight and avoid damage, and kept dry and clean inside any polythene packaging until immediately before painting. Do not store or install in an area which may be subject to extremes of temperature. Use a dry, well ventilated building, in areas which have not been recently plastered.
It is essential that precautions are taken to prevent moisture content build up. Particular care is needed in centrally heated or air conditioned buildings. Premdor must be informed at the time of tender and order whenever doors are needed for such buildings.
The testing and rapid switching on and off of heating during the construction is detrimental to joinery.
It is important that any packaging material (shrink wrap etc.) is left on the door for as long as is practically possible to avoid damage to door surfaces. This is particularly relevant to fully finished products.
Doors should be fitted as prescribed in the BS Code of Practice BS 8000 Part 5.
It is essential that doors be fully sealed immediately after delivery. They should be sealed and knotted and primed on both faces and all four edges, and should then be fully finished, preferably before installation.
It is essential that if the finish is broken in any way
(e.g. trimmed, drilled or cut for letter box, hinges
etc.) then any such exposed area should be painted/ sealed. If, when installing doors, a reduction in overall size is required, it is important that equal amounts are taken from opposite edges. Allowable trim dimensions available on request.
When fitting locks and latches in doors, it is important to ensure that the construction and performance of the door is not adversely affected.
All doors should be hung 11/2 pair suitable for the weight of the door, fire doors please see data sheets provided with each door.
Decoration should be carried out in accordance with BS 6150 and BS 8000 Part 5. Products must be clean and dry prior to finishing, having moisture content which is no greater than the average for the intended location. Always follow the manufactures instructions provided with the paint which is to be applied.
It is important that the finishing system is balanced
by equal application to both sides at the same time to ensure that an imbalance of moisture does not occur, particularly in the decoration of doors. The complete surface area should be fully treated with topcoat paint prior to installation. To ensure adequate coverage at least three coats of topcoat paint needs to be applied. All edges and any areas which have been cut, drilled, etc. must be fully painted to the same standard as the rest of the door.
Premdor has no control over customer applied finishes of doors and therefore cannot accept any claims for problems of any type relating to customer finishing of the doors.
Do not use oil (e.g. Danish oil) waxes, polishes or dyes as they do not properly seal the door. Coatings must be regularly maintained to prevent a breakdown of
the protective paint film, which can lead to moisture ingress/loss and deterioration of the door.
Please note
Finger-jointed materials may be used in manufacture, enhancing product stability.
