What are your lead times for custom manufacturing & delivery to site?
Current Lead Time: 16-18 weeks from shop drawing approval date
This is due to the upcoming Chinese New Year Holiday and COVID-19 Pandemic which has heavily impacted importing goods into Australia by reduced number of shipments, Australian Ports operating at reduced capacity and heavy delays unloading containers at all major ports due to the backlog.

Can Iron Entry Doors be facing the sun and exposed to water?
We dont recommend installing the entry doors in instances where the entrance will face direct sun for most of the day, extreme heat can distort the steel and cause issues with the jamb.
We recommend the doors are installed at least 1-1.5 metres setback under a covered porch not directly impacted by the elements.
While the doors seal up and have weather stripping to protect agains wind, they are not completely water tight and should be kept away from direct rain.

Do you offer installation & glazing service?
No we do not offer installation. We do supply all internal steel doors/windows with single or double glazing.
External iron or steel doors or sidelight/highlight windows can be supplied with or without glazing. Please check with your building surveyor or certifier on the requirements.
How do I install my new Zen Door?
As each installation will have different requirements and quality and safety is paramount, we recommend using a Registered Builder or Carpenter to install your Zen Door. Your door will come with all the necessary hardware to install your door into our supplied door frames. View the installation guide on our website for basic instructions.
For Iron Doors there are two methods for installation, iron mounting tabs welded on the side of the iron door jamb or pre drilled mounting holes on the inside of the jamb. Please talk to your builder or installer which method will be best for your circumstances on site.
Your builder or carpenter will ensure proper installation of the jamb and hanging of the door. As both iron and steel glass doors are quite heavy, multiple people will be needed for installation.
My project is interstate, can my builder or carpenter install and arrange the site glazing?
Yes we advise you have your builder or carpenter handle the installation. We recommend also going over the shop drawings we provide with your builder or carpenter to understand the requirements prior to delivery. Glazing for external doors/windows can be done by a local glazier who can provide a glazing certificate for external doors/windows.
What type of finishes do you provide?
We have different finishes for the different door materials. Our iron doors are painted with a zinc based patina paint and our steel glass doors are powder coated with a zinc fluorine paint.
How do I order?
You can order a hinge or pivot door by getting in touch with us and obtaining a quote. Once you have made payment we create a CAD shop drawing your door according to the plans or dimensions you provide us. This shop drawing will need to be reviewed and signed off by you or your builder/carpenter/installer prior to us constructing the door. You can expect to receive the shop drawing within 3-5 days of making payment.
At Zen Doors quality control is paramount, so each door must pass our rigorous quality assurance tests and checks prior to packing and shipment.
