Putting Trust in Longden Doors

Known for its ability to combine high traditional craftsmanship with modern performance characteristics, Longden Doors is a popular choice for conservation and heritage projects, so it’s no surprise that Longden has supplied its doors to the National Trust on a large number of renovation projects.

As one of the largest landowners in the UK, the National Trust owns many heritage properties and works to preserve and protect places of historic interest or natural beauty. One national trust property, Dunham Massey in Cheshire, has recently undergone an extensive £4 million renovation during which Longden primed panelled doorsets were supplied. All were horizontally boarded Manhattan panel doorsets in European Oak, which served to create a sophisticated look that remained in keeping with the design of the new visitor centre, whilst maintaining a traditional look and feel.

Longshaw Lodge, set against the spectacular backdrop of the Peak District, also benefitted from Longden’s heritage expertise during its renovation. Longden Doors supplied handcrafted Chippendale Raised & Fielded Sussex 4 panel doorsets – all FD60 fire rated. All doorsets were primed and made from Sapele hardwood, giving a distinct and stylish finish that ran throughout the interior refurbishment.

Commenting on Longden’s work on conservation and heritage projects, John Hallam, Northern Regional Sales Manager at Longden Doors, said, 
“We are proud to be associated with such a worthwhile and prestigious organisation. Having manufactured our bespoke doorsets for 175 years, Longden Doors has the expertise necessary to manufacture high quality, traditional panelled doorsets which also meet today’s strict performance criteria – perfect for heritage renovation projects. From an aesthetic perspective too, our doorsets are completely in keeping with the feel of most National Trust properties, combining a heritage ‘look’ with traditional manufacturing expertise to deliver a doorset solution that is consistent across the board and therefore highly suited to The National Trust’s estate of heritage buildings.”
