External Door Surrounds
GRP External Door Surrounds
If you are looking to change the appearance to the entrance of your home, then installing a GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) door surround will transform any doorway, instantly adding a touch of elegance and style to your property.
In our collection we have 3 styles to choose from, the Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian. The Victorian is also available in a winged and larger version. When fitted the door surrounds are slim line and do not take up much room, averaging around 260mm depth from the wall, but they frame the door perfectly, adding that additional character.
The large version of the Victorian door surround can be used to frame large doors like French doors, doors with side panels and patio doors.
The door surrounds are fitted using screws, no adhesive is used.
Measure from the top of the door opening where the doors surround is to be fitted to the ground level. Measure pillar and trim off excess at bottom of pillar to the desired size.
Hold the first pillar against the wall and fix top and bottom with 1 x 75mm screw/plug/cap at the top flat section and 1 x 100mm screw/plug/cap at the bottom flat section. Take care not to over- tighten the screws as this could distort the pillar and cause cracking. Repeat for the second pillar, ensuring that the tops of the two pillars are level.
Place the top section above the door and centralize over the two pillars. When correctly positioned, fix using 50mm screws/plugs/caps along the top flange at approximately 300mm spacing’s.
Sweep the area around the door surround and clean all dust and dirt off the door surround using a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive materials as this could damage the gel coat surface.
Seal around the door surround using appropriately coloured silicone sealant
