Shoji Doors Technical Information

Timber
We use responsibly sourced timber from Australian forests*.
Australian oak consists of a few species, from Tasmanian oak
to Victorian ash. These have good stability and straight grain
for joinery with light to blonde colour, perfect complements
for Australian homes and interior décor. Please note that
timber is a natural product with variations in grain and colour.
These variations are not considered defects. (* see links)
Construction
Shoji Doors are designed to last and we don’t compromise
on quality. Stiles and rails are all constructed with mortise
and tenon joinery. The lattice joinery is unique, very specialised and detailed. Our methods are based on techniques and
education learned in Japan.
Prefinished Lattice
The Shoji Doors are in-part, “prefinished”. In the factory we have prefinished the inserts timber lattice designs in a clear lacquer, saving you the fuss. Once your doors have been fitted, and the latches installed, etc, then simply paint the outer frame and your door is complete.
Acrylic Insert
The insert is a 3mm translucent white non see through acrylic cast sheet. It has a satin finish on both sides and allows light to softly filter through the door. The acrylic is a strong and durable product* that can be cleaned easily. Also, the acrylic is warm to
touch and perfect for keeping room temperatures contained.

Application
They can be used for hinged doors, surface mounted sliding
doors, wardrobe sliding doors and cavity doors. The Shoji
Doors range is a response to the popular request for shoji
(Japanese sliding screens) in a standard size door that is suitable for Australian homes. The Shoji Doors range now makes shoji an option for any home!
Installing
Shoji Doors are installed in the same way as any other internal hinged, cavity or sliding door. Whether it is DIY by the handyman or using a carpenter, Shoji Doors are a joy to fit and see the end results. Handles and latches of your choice can be fitted and the Shoji Door can be trimmed to size 5~10mm all around. Standard door opening frames, sliding pelmet box kits and cavity units are
available from your local building suppliers and hardware shops.
