For standard size doors, we will email you when your order is dispatched.

Our doors are hand made using a material called ‘Moisture Resistant Medium Density Fibreboard’ or MRMDF for short, and branded as Medite® which is the favoured brand for high quality applications worldwide. This is our material of choice because it has moisture resistant properties, meaning that we can be sure that your door will stay the same size and not warp in different humidity levels. The second reason, which is just as important, is that because of it’s moisture resistant properties, it is constructed with a much harder wearing exterior surface. This hard external layer provides the perfect base to take a great paint finish.

The doors in your order will be provided without hinge drilling as standard. If you would like hinge holes to be drilled for you, then there is an option on the product page which will need to be selected in order for your doors to be supplied hinge drilled.

Doors are supplied either primed or bare. You can select these options at the product page.  We do not offer top coating.

We do not supply glazed doors, we cannot insure these during transit.

We use a type of MRMDF branded as Medite®. One of the most important benefits to Medite® is its sustainability. This material is made from 100 percent recycled materials, and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as a sustainably harvested wood product. While plywood and MDF are constructed using formaldehyde-based resins, Medite® is manufactured using methyl diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), a formaldehyde-free adhesive. Formaldehyde levels are closely linked to poor indoor air quality, which can contribute to respiratory illnesses and other health problems.

We put the doors through a sanding process, to level any uneven joints and to clean up any excess glue.  Any doors that are primed are coated twice per side.

If you are replacing existing doors, please just measure the existing door exactly and provide us with those measurements via the product page or via email at info@shaker2go.co.uk - 

We also have videos on our how to measure page here  https://shaker2go.co.uk/how-to-measure

You can use almost any type of paint on our primed doors.  We prefer Little Greene Paints which we sell here:  https://shaker2go.co.uk/accessories/little-greene-paint.html

We can produce angled doors.  Send your inquiry via email.  We usually prefer these to be on a diagram ideally.

Our 18mm doors have a panel recess on the front and back of around 4.5mm approximately. Our 22mm doors have a panel recess on the front of 9mm and 4.5mm on the rear approximately.

Hand Made shaker doors are comprised of separate components joined together by our joiners using traditional methods. If we use a small door as an example, the panel is the centre component and the rails are the pieces that surround the panel, a bit like a picture frame around a picture. Rail width refers to when looking at the door from the front, how wide you would like this frame/border to be around the panel. Our standard no fuss option is 75mm to keep things simple, but this is customizable when ordering online.

On taller doors like those used for wardrobes for example, you might want cross rails on your door. When you have multiple panels, this means your centre part of the door (the panel) is divided by mid rails. For example, if you had a tall door with 1 panel, there would be no mid rails. If you select 2 panels, a mid rail would be put on the door to split the panel into two panels. Mid rails are only ever added in a horizontal direction when ordered online. See our Instagram for more examples of doors with more than 1 panel.
