2-Panel Top Rail Arch
1-3/4″ Thick – Interior Door
2-PANEL TOP RAIL ARCH, Interior Door, 1-3/4” Thick
Wood panel doors, often called “stile and rail doors”, are built with frame and panel construction. The panels are the large, wider boards used to fill the space between the stiles, rails and typically fit into grooves in the frame components, and help to keep the door rigid. Wood panels may be either raised with a decorative profile (i.e. not on the same level or plane as the material around it) or flat.
This 1-3/4” thick 2-panel top rail arch door is made in the U.S.A. at our northern Colorado factory, near Fort Collins. This door is for Interior applications only—not as an entry door. Our Knotty Alder lumber is sourced from the western U.S., from responsibly managed forests.
Key elements of this door include:
This door includes an industry leading Door Warranty, with one-year limited coverage on unfinished (raw) doors, and five-year limited coverage on factory pre-finished doors. Please note that this five-year extended warranty applies only to the construction of the door, and not the factory pre-finish itself.
Engineered Stiles & Rails
Stiles and rails are the vertical and horizontal “frame” components respectively of the door. Our stiles and rails are engineered to resist bowing and warping. We use industry leading 1/8” thick veneers, with superior quality Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) core material. Our LVL core is manufactured with a vertical layup, with laminated layers positioned at a 90° angle to the veneer surface for maximum stability. This door features a solid wood arched top rail (Top Rail Arch, or TRA).
Panels are the large, wider boards used to fill the space between the stiles and rails. The panels on this door are 1” thick solid wood—much higher quality than pressboard panels with thin veneers, or hollow core panels. Panels are manufactured with small width boards, edge glued to create the larger width panel. Individual boards are random widths, glued in alternating grain patterns to balance the panel and reduce the natural tendency of the wood to warp or cup.
Bore & Dowel Construction
Our doors are assembled with bore and dowel construction. We use industry leading 1/2” diameter dowels. Stiles and rails are bored, glued and then doweled for optimum strength and stability. Panels fit into grooves in the stile and rail components, and “float” on rubber spacers to allow for minor expansion and shrinking of the wood with the natural moisture and environmental changes of the home.
Panel & Sticking Profile
This door features a subtle convex panel profile and a “C” (concave and convex curved) sticking profile as shown below. “Sticking” is the decorative trim wood placed between the stiles and rails and the panels of the door.
