BOS doorset solutions for timber doors

Timber doors

Advantages of BOS doors

BOS is a specialist manufacturer of steel door frames. However, we recognise that the performance of the doorset is dependent on the quality of the door and hardware within the frame. We therefore partner with leading door producers to provide a solution designed to last the lifetime of your building.

We have proven experience that our preference for solid core doors with rail and stile construction, laminate finishes to express colour or to match wood grains is the way forward. Essential intumescents are concealed within the doors and the door edges are protected by durable PVC door lippings.

Advantages of BOS doors for the architect

The correct choice of door construction is one of the most important decisions in the specification of interior products. Few products have to last as long, few products receive such levels of use and potential abuse, few products have to meet the stringent requirements of fire and acoustic performance. When corners are cut, value engineering taken to the extreme and poor decisions made, there are few products which have such a huge impact on the cost of maintenance, repair, redecoration and premature renewal.

BOS doors with BOS frames are carefully designed to address the above issues. We have developed performance doors for performance buildings.
