Yurt Doors

Authentic Design Specialised for the European Climate


Yurt Workshop Doors
 
Our handcrafted yurt doors are absolutely unique. Made to the same functional design as in Mongolia, using modern glues and finishes, and given a special tweak so they not only work brilliantly but they look just right with our beautiful yurts.

In Mongolia, a door is made a certain way, a certain size and shape as it works better that way. The frame is wide and thick, this allows better sealing to the covers. The threshold is high to stop dirt and snow blowing in. The height is restricted to allow ease of transport, protection from the wind and, we believe, a better-looking yurt.
 
 
Technical Details
A yurt door is unlike a conventional house door, yurts generate stresses in the opposite direction to those on a conventional door frame, and this needs to be understood if the door is to be made correctly. After studying the yurts and the craftsman from Mongolia and Central Asia we implement their understanding and centuries-old craftsmanship into our doors and door frames. The best woods are selected and we use traditional mortise and tenon joints, secured with the traditional wooden pegs, and in addition, for added protection, we use high-quality boat makers glue to make sure the joints are sealed and they give many years of trouble-free life. So, no matter what design you choose, you can be reassured of a quality and attractive door for your yurt., 
 
A note on door height: We like the door frame top to sit close to the top of yurt wall and not protrude too much so it doesn't detract from the beauty of the shape. However, we can make larger doors for those who want them.

All the doors that we provide come with a security lock, and the traditional poles for each side of the frame.  
 
Finishing 
Having spent all that time and love in crafting your door we want it to look great and last a long time. So we don't scrimp on the finishing.  
Each door is sanded and smoothed in preparation for finishing.  We use a high-quality German finish that comes in three parts and we end up applying four separate coats of it to create an absolutely brilliant finish. 
 
Rustic Doors

Solid Rustic Door
 
Our entry model is the solid rustic door, as shown in the photo on the right. This door is solid and strong giving great protection.  
 
The solid looks and rustic finish complement and blend beautifully with the interior of our yurts. The quality of the wood, design and security lock means this is a very secure door.

The extra handmade hardware are locally made using the same patterns and techniques that have been employed since antiquity.  We cost them with a thin layer of varnish and provide a small wire brush and oil to clean them. Over time the colour darkens until they look like fine antique ironware.
