All Diamond Windows doors are constructed using the Mortise & Tenon
This produces a stronger join, where timber tongues slide into a corresponding
slot of the timber to be joined.
The glass in all doors made by Diamond Windows conforms to Australian
Glazing Standards. It is secured into the door with mastic (a
non-setting compound used to seal joints) and a timber
trim (known as bead) nailed on. The nails are
stainless steel to prevent rusting and deterioration, which
will ultimately weaken the door strength.
4mm toughened glass is used in all of diamond windows doors, unless the
area to be glazed is under 5m². Almost any type of glass is
available through our suppliers.
The doorsill, which is prone to the most traffic,
(including kids roller blades) is made from a hardwood
called Merbau due to its robust strength and resilience to
knocks. Depending on the style of the house, these can be Bull
Nosed or Square.
Windows recommend that 3 hinges be used to fix a door to
its frame. This distributes the weight evenly and
prevents any sagging or sticking.
With the endless range of hinges, door handles and
door locks available on the market, these are not supplied.
Your builder can assist you in this area.
Moulding is used on the inside of a door generally. This allows
the moulding to sit flush with the door and prevents
plasterwork being damaged by the door opening onto it.
Moulding is used to give the door a decorative appearance
and greater definition.
