Taylors Doors and Frames bring you the next generation of solid core doors. Taylors Doors and Frames use a lightweight Albasia core which is easy to handle and hang.

Solid core doors are edged with an internal 25mm solid timber edge rail to all four (4) sides with a selection of door facings dependant on the finish required. Our standard range of door facings include;

  • Paint Grade Ply (sheet thickness 3.6mm)
  • Duracote Tempered Hardboard (sheet thickness 3.2mm)
