Door Frames

Door frames and door linings refer to external door frames and internal door frames respectively. Door linings tend to be thinner and manufactured from timber as they aren’t exposed to the elements and internal doors are lighter, thinner doors. Door frames are thicker external frames which are primed and manufactured to oppose the elements and remain sturdy. Available as accessory products to door frames are architrave sets, skirting boards and mullions too. 

What types of door frames are there?

Door frames and door linings come in all types and materials, including MDF, hardwood and softwood as well as engineered timber. Timber frames and linings are for internal use whilst it’s more common to find engineered timber frames and linings outside. Many internal door linings have a moisture-resistant core so there’s no danger of rotting or damp timber in kitchens and bathrooms. 

Fire rated frames are growing more popular as fire doors become the must-have home safety product. It goes without saying that if you’re purchasing fire rated doors then you need fire rated frames too. Without correct install against fire rated frames the fire doors won’t perform as expected. These frames are manufactured to withstand flames and the heat of fire, ensuring that the frame doesn’t warp and prevent the door from opening if needed as an escape route. 

Sidelight frames offer a frame for the door as well as a frame on either side, or both sides, to create an external door frame of your own style. The sidelight frames will hold glazing panels with whichever type of pattern or design you’re after to create a stunning modern or traditional effect. Universal sidelight frames offer complete freedom over which external door you choose. 

Architraves and skirting board

Architraves are decorative door linings that are fitted outside of the actual door lining to create an aesthetic design or pattern. They improve the overall look, giving the homeowner the option to make a traditional or contemporary final finish. Architrave sets provide lengths of architrave to fit around most standard door sizes and each comes varnished or unvarnished. 

There’s a skirting board set from Door Superstore to match every door lining and internal frame in modern, ogee and classic profiles. To achieve a suitable matching finish you can order skirting boards varnished or unvarnished.
