Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

The Zwinger Palace in Dresden is a major German landmark. The location was formerly part of the Dresden fortress of which the outer wall is conserved. The name derives from the German word Zwinger (outer ward of a concentric castle); it was for the cannons that were placed between the outer wall and the major wall. The Zwinger was not enclosed until the neoclassical building by Gottfried Semper called the Semper wing was built to host the


Augustus the Strong, elector of Saxony, returned from a grand tour through France and Italy in 1687"89, just at the moment that Louis XIV moved his court to Versailles. On his return to Dresden, having arranged his election as King of Poland (1697), he wanted something similarly spectacular for himself. The fortifications were no longer needed and provided readily available space for his plans. The original plans, as developed by his court architect Matthéus Daniel Péppelmann before 1711, covered the space of the present complex of palace and garden, and also included as gardens the space down to the Elbe River, upon which the Semper opera house and its square were built in the nineteenth century.

These jambs are ideal for conventional wood frame homes, masonry construction as well as for log homes or post and beam construction.

It is created by cutting a dado cut into the jamb, to receive and seal the door in a closed position. This method insures a perfect seal every time.

Your Choice Of Heavy Duty Fuctional Hardware Designed To Last

Hinge Choice #1: Heavy Duty Pin Hinges: These hinges are finished to match your decorative hardware. Unlike most production or semi custom door manufacturers we offer only high strength hinges that will stand the test of time.


Hinge Choice #2: Self Closing, Tension Adjustable Hinges: These hinges can be adjusted from 0-10 depending on the speed at which you wish your door to self close. You may also choose not to set the self closing tension. These hinges are finished to match your decorative hardware. Unlike most production or semi custom door manufacturers we offer only high strength hinges that will stand the test of time.


Hinge Choice #3: Interior Door Hinges: These hinges are finished to match your decorative hardware. Unlike most production or semi custom door manufacturers we offer only high strength hinges that will stand the test of time.


Must Have - Adjustable Tension, Roller Style Door Latch: This ensures that your door will not open in windy conditions even when the lock is not set. The roller pressure to strike plate can be adjusted to allow the push and pull resistance to be to your personal choice. Depending upon the size, your door unit may require more than one of these latches. This style of latch removes the need for leavers, knobs, and thumb push hardware that usually need early replacing due to use mechanism failure.


Lock Choice #1: Heavy Duty Dead Bolt: This special dead bolt lock is built for our 3" to 7" thick doors. It is high strength tungsten steel and is almost impossible to breech allowing for the best security available. You may order single cylinder (thumb turn interior) or double cylinder (keyed both sides). This lock is also suitable for most commercial applications.


Lock Choice #2: Mortise Lock - Extra Heavy Duty: This special heavy duty mortise lock is produced by one of the worlds top lock manufacturers specially for our extra thick solid wood doors. This style of lock requires a large mortised pocket to allow for the steel lock mechanism to fit inside the door edge. Also the mounting plates and locking bolt are larger than that of a standard dead bolt. This type of lock allows for additional strength and security. It is high strength tungsten steel and is almost impossible to breech allowing for the best security available. You may order single cylinder (thumb turn interior) or double cylinder (keyed both sides).


Sweep Choice #1: Self Sealing Mechanical Under Door Sweep: This sweep is installed in the bottom of our 3"-7" thick door, it automatically raises and lowers as you open and close the door thus ensuring a perfect seal to your threshold every time. This sweep includes adjustable pressure turn that you may adjust to ensure a precise seal every time. As a side benefit, this type of sweep retracts into the bottom of the door as it opens to clear your interior entrance rug or flooring.


Sweep Choice #2: Face Mount Drag And Squeeze Sweep: This sweep is installed on the face of your door and requires extra force to open and close your door. It has been our experience this style sweep does not insure a perfect seal over time.


Threshold Choice: Adjustable Heavy Duty Crush Proof Threshold: This adjustable saddle threshold allows for a perfect seal when you close your door keeping the weather elements and creatures out. ADA compliant and commercial thresholds available.


Double Doors Require Stationary Door Slide Locks: The stationary door is required to be locked in order to allow the motion door to latch and lock. The strength of these slide locks are important to your security. Most leaver style mortis pins are weak and require very little force to break open. The solution is surface mounted solid steel slide bolts or drop bars.


Slide Bolt Choice #1: Surface Mounted Decorative Stationary Slide Bolts: Hand forged steel stationary slide bolts to secure your stationary door are built artistically to match your handles or design. This option is your most secure choice.


Mortis Pin Choice #2: Flush Mounted Leaver Mortis Pins: These pins are mortised into your stationary door to hold it in a fixed position. It has been our experience that this type of pin provides a weak point in double doors and is not the most secure.

Scottsdale Art Factory carries on the American Arts And Crafts Movement of the 21st century, in the same way William Morris and John Ruskin (founders of the Arts and Crafts furniture movement in circa 1800 England) inspired Gustave Stickley (founder of the American Arts and Crafts movement) in America circa 1900. Frank Loyd Wright, Charles and Henry Greene (inspired architects of the ultimate cottages such as the Gamble House in Pasadena California) are credited with raising quality standard to its highest level in their day. All of these great master craftsman also inspired the Marabella Brothers in the early 20th Century (founders of SAF circa 1913).


Every creative enterprise is always built on a foundation that was laid down by its predecessors. Creative people are also dependent on the groundwork laid down by those who came before them. H. J. Nick, artist and direct descendant of the Marbella brothers, and Scottsdale Art Factory have built on these foundations and have raised the bar of quality even higher. Thus setting a new standard and offering the finest one of a kind handmade furnishings found anywhere in the world in the 21st century.
