The most likely reason is an incorrectly adjusted door leaf. See “Adjusting the door leaf” section in the Skaala operating, installation and maintenance manual, pages 8–9.
First check that you are opening the door correctly: the handle must be fully open (90⁰). If the problem persists, see the “Operation of external and balcony doors” section in the Skaala operating, installation and maintenance manual, page 9.
Check whether the latch bolt is correctly aligned with the counterpiece. If it is not, check the door adjustments; see the Skaala operating, installation and maintenance manual, page 8. If you are unable to fix the fault, contact a locksmith.
The door should be maintained regularly. Cleaning is part of the basic maintenance of the product. Dirt can harbour fungi and mould, which can damage the painted surface if it is not cleaned regularly. See the Skaala product care instructions in the operating, installation and maintenance manual, pages 12–14.
There is no difference. Since 2007, all our doors for indoor spaces have been called ‘interior doors’. Other manufacturers in Finland have followed suit. You can still ask for feature doors or internal doors, but they all mean the same thing .
Patio doors are sliding solid-glass door elements that provide access to a terrace, balcony or garden. They are often called sliding doors. At Skaala, we call them patio doors, as it describes the purpose better and communicates the way these doors connect the indoor and outdoor spaces.
The frame depth is the width between the inner and outer edges of the door or window frame. The suitable depth depends on e.g. the thickness of the wall. We recommend checking the appropriate frame depth with a Skaala expert.
The dimensions always include the frame. Our quotes specify the exact dimensions of each standard-size door, but otherwise the dimensions are usually rounded up or down to the nearest 10cm. Example: If the exact dimensions are 890 x 2,090, the size is indicated as 9×21 Note: This does not apply to custom-made doors.
The handle placement is indicated for the side that opens outwards. It indicates which hand is used to open the door. If the handle is on the right edge, the door is left-handed. If the handle is on the left edge, the door is right-handed.
