b2ap3_thumbnail_GFXjavawallnur.jpgThere are ancient Egyptian paintings depicting simple wood slabs hung between openings and used to close off one space from another. As Egypt was hot and very dry, these basic doors were unframed and didn't run the risk of warping, although they echoed disapproval as Cleopatra slammed her way through her palace.

In earlier more primitive times, the cave dwellers, in an effort to protect themselves from the elements and prowling beasts, vainly gathered rocks and other junk around the entrance until smarter Flintstones cut down trees and stacked heavy planks at the opening of the cave. These "doors" developed over time into a myriad of styles, shapes, sizes, materials, functions and operating methods. 

At Noyeks we offer a very large range of interior doors and all the accessories, framing, architrave and hardware needed to give you doors that will last the test of time.

I’ve worked in the wood products industry for 25 years. It’s a fascinating industry because it’s changing all the time. The biggest change I’ve seen recently is the move from basic wood components to highly sophisticated, engineered wood used in flooring, kitchens, work surfaces and the construction industry. Another thing I love about this industry is the fact that I’m working with the only truly renewable resource: wood.

Please get in touch if you’d like to share my passion for the wood products that surround us in our daily lives.. Email me at
