Sct. Mortens Kirke – Flush wooden doors

in a modern extension to the old church.

Sct. Mortens Kirke in Randers dates from the end of the 15th century. The church has had an extension built, bringing the church office and church under one roof.

The building was designed by VMB Architects, who chose Vahle to produce the flush wooden doors.

Interior doors inhibit fire and sound

Vahle supplied 22 interior doors for the majestic red brickwork church. 15 of the doors have built-in fire and sound requirements and access control.

The solid doors are produced with oak veneer on the door leaves and solid oak frames.

In addition to the doors, glass sections with fire glass and side and transom glass transom built into oak frames were supplied.

Wooden doors with brass door handles

The wooden doors have brass hinges, door handles and doorsteps. This golden material complements the warm wooden surface of the door.

When the door handle and hardware are made of the same material, it creates a beautiful connection, which makes the door look even stronger.

Flush doors make the architect happy

Bruno Viuf Larsen, architect at VMB Arkitekter, says that

Vahle produced the flush doors exactly as the company wanted, which is very satisfying. At the same time, Vahle’s doors meet all fire, sound and functional requirements, while both delivery and service are top-notch.
