Flat Panel Mission Style Doors

Flat Panel Wood Doors manufactured by Allegheny Wood Works are available as Interior Doors and Exterior Front Entry Doors. Flat Panel Doors are also called Mission Doors or Arts and Crafts Doors.

Flat Panel Doors, also known as Mission or Arts and Crafts style, are an example of frame and panel construction, a method developed hundreds of years ago to combat the effects of moisture on solid wood used in doors, cabinetry and furniture making.

In a flat panel door, a large panel is fitted into a groove in the interior edge of a more dimensionally stable frame. The panel is sized slightly smaller than actual dimension that the grooved frame will accommodate, and simply rests in the groove witohut being physically attached to the frame.

Since the panel is given a little "room to move" and isnt' physically attached to the frame, it is free to expand and contract with seasonal changes in humidity without affecting the stable shape and size of the frame.
