Fortress Double Doors: Custom Handmade Fine Art Castle Entrance
At ArtFactory.com, we have been building world class fine art, custom handmade solid wood doors since 1913, and still build every door using the same way we did it over a century ago. Furthermore, we specialize in creating custom door designs inspired by historic architecture. Among the most popular style of doors are those inspired by Medieval castle doors, such as these fortress double doors. In search of inspiration for these designs, award winning artist H.J. Nick travels the world studying historic architecture. In particular, he studies the materials that these historic doors were made from, and what techniques were used to build them. This allows us to create a door that not only looks like the original, but is in fact an exact replica built using the same hand and craft that was used to build the original. This allows us to create a quality of product that stands on its own as a work of original world class fine art. In fact, original hand and craft must be used for a piece to qualify as fine art. Furthermore, every door built in our factory, is individually constructed by the hands of our master craftsmen, meaning that no two are ever exactly alike. That is why our products are never machine made, mass produced, CNC machine cut, or built with low quality materials like particle board, plywood, veneers, or laminates. We use only the highest quality, hand hewn, full length planks of naturally desert air cured old growth timber, and the tried and tested method of mortise and tenon, pegged and dowelled construction.
Building items that are disposable is a practice that is unique to the past fifty years. In the old world, when a piece of furniture was built, it was built from solid, natural materials by master craftsmen. Most importantly, it was built to last forever. Something like a solid wood entrance door would be passed down through a family for generations along with the home that was also built to last forever. We have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship into the 21st century. Built from solid cedar (as pictured), these custom fortress double doors are a prime example of this type of product. It is our belief that when you buy a solid wood door from ArtFactory.com, that is will be the last door you ever have to buy for that entrance. Our fortress double doors feature a symmetrical design, with 12 inverted wood panels on each door blade. Furthermore, this medieval inspired design features gothic inspired, master blacksmith hand forged wrought iron hardware. This includes the ornamental strap hinges, decorative iron clavos, ball and twist door pulls, and the security grills over the dual, working, speakeasy portals. As pictured, the fortress double doors have a flat top, however, like any of our designs, it can be built with a full or semi arched top (we also offer unique customizations such as cathedral arches). Additionally, any of our solid wood custom handmade entrance doors can be built for interior or exterior, residential or commercial use. We can even create matching doors for an entire home or business.
Fortress Double Doors Custom Wrought Iron Hardware
The custom fortress double doors, as pictured, feature what is perhaps our popular door pull design, the ball and twist door pull, this versatile handle can be used on almost any style of door. We offer wrought iron door pulls customized in any size or style that you choose. Choose from our hundreds of styles of custom door handles and theme door pulls, or have our designers create one for you. The custom fortress double doors also have custom decorative hinge straps, and dual speakeasy portals protected by custom hand forged security grills. As with all of our custom doors, your hardware options are fully customizable. This includes, as pictured, ornamental wrought iron clavos, to complete the gothic inspired design. These decorative nails are made from genuine wrought iron, and each is individually hand hammered into shape by our master blacksmiths over a coal fired forge. We specialize in building historically inspired designs, and we build them using the same techniques and materials as the originals from history. We can also build from any picture, drawing, idea, or historic design.
Additionally, all of our hardware comes advance patinated with a hand applied, heat infused iron oxide patina. This type of finish won't crack, peel, or flake like paints and powder coats. Our door hardware is always hand built to your specifications by our master blacksmiths using hand forged wrought iron. When we say hand forged, we mean with fire, hammer, and anvil. We never cast, drop forge, build from a mold, or use any type of fast or mass production process. This means that every time, you will receive a fine art quality piece of hardware that is uniquely yours, of investment quality, and built to stand the test of time.

Fortress Double Doors Fine Art Finish Details
The meticulous finish has been done in age old technique, using a 23-step hand rubbed process. We begin with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. That puts the finish in the wood not just sprayed on it. This allows for the fine natural wood grains to show to perfection. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This method is performed on all furniture and door wood surfaces inside and out. This tried and tested finish detail is required in the making of a one-of-a-kind, family heirloom quality product that meets world class investment quality standards that will stand the test of time. This process is the only way with little maintenance and the simple process of cleaning with oil will allow for a beautiful natural patina that will make this door more beautiful over time.
