About Us

Arnold Laver (as part of The National Timber Group), have a number of production centres across the UK, including our recently acquired state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Stockton.

Our in-house Door Centres carry out work to meet our customers’ specifications in terms of material and timescales, offering a fast and efficient service for both the Housing and Commercial sectors. We provide a range of products and services for most door set and door and frame applications.

We manufacture doorsets, doorkits and screens offering a complete package tailored to individual needs. We manufacture to a wide range of specifications including veneered doors (book matched where applicable), laminated doors with concealed or exposed lippings, paint grade doors, HTM 58 doorsets and timber glazed screens. Fully certified doors are available with fire ratings from FD30 – 120 and Acoustic doorsets upto 44dB.

We are certified to supply and manufacture complete doorsets under the BWF Certifire Doorset Scheme, which is the leading representative for fire door manufacturers. All fire doorsets manufactured by Arnold Laver Intelligent Door Solutions are labelled / barcoded to ease traceability.

It is our policy to provide our customers with a high quality service and product. Our commitment to this is reinforced through our accreditation to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standard; offering customers confidence that their needs will be met from receipt of initial enquiry to final delivery.

We actively seek to work alongside customers, specifiers, contractors and suppliers throughout the manufacturing process in the belief that this ensures snag-free final completion and handover. We firmly believe that this approach has enabled us to build both our reputation and turnover through repeat business with our clients.

We have invested heavily in leading edge CNC technology (1st of its kind in the UK joinery industry), to ensure that production capacity, to the highest standard, exceeds existing requirements. Our main CNC is robotically controlled, within an IT network which is fully integrated across all functions of the company.
