Made in Australia
Shoji Screens and Doors are proud to be Australian-made in Brisbane, Queensland. We have a network of distributors on the east coast and across Australia in each state and territory, including Tasmania, many of whom have been with us for many years.
At Shoji Screens and Doors, we believe quality begins from the moment you call and lasts many, many years, as will your doors. From sales, by comprehensively communicating your needs, into design, where attention to detail is assured. Our factory then produce a hand finished and hand assembled door to the highest possible standards, and our installers ensure a clean, neat and functional shoji experience.
With more than 16 years experience, specifically in Shoji, and unlike any other upcoming Shoji manufacturer, we have a highly developed procedure in manufacturing our doors which gives them strength and longevity that is unsurpassed. This gives the application of our doors, not only to domestic dwellings but also to architectural and commercial projects.
Every door or screen is ‘custom-made’ to suit your situation, your artistic taste and your functional requirements. You can choose the design of the door and the configuration, the materials used, and the finish, together with the helpful advice of Shoji .We will visit and site measure to accommodate your specific needs. We can guide you from our experience, as every situation is different, and everyone’s taste is individual.
Our standard range: consists of Natural timbers in a satin- finish clear lacquer. Choose from Joinery grade Tasmanian Oak, Kaudamu, New Guinea Rosewood or Western Red Cedar. Black Lacquer or White Lacquer finish given to Tasmanian Oak if desired.
Staining is also available. Applied to Kaudamu, choose from Brown Brushbox, Pink Brushbox, Mahogany, Walnut or Dark Walnut, and also Wenge, each with a clear lacquer.
Or you may prefer that we ‘Paint’ in a colour of your choice.
Our standard insert panel is made exclusively for us with fibreglass that replicates the appearance of rice paper and is known as ‘rice opal’. Other choices include a frosted matt finish acrylic that replicates frosted glass, and a range of patterned, imported acrylics including rice paper laminated into acrylic.
Naturally over time, we have developed a number of popular designs that retain the structural integrity of the doors, to suit a variety of tastes and environments. Shoji may be a traditional Japanese appearance or a very contemporary design that incorporates the basis of allowing light to pass through. Lightweight, yet strong doors that guide quietly along their tracks.
The location and situation, the individual configurations, and of course the size for our doors varies. We will discuss with you the pros and cons of each option for you and provide the specific tracks, guides and all other hardware to suit. For a simple example; you may have an opening that requires a fixed and sliding combination, with a choice of two or 3 doors. If two doors, then the opening would be half at any given time, if three doors, with one picking up another, you may have two thirds open at any one time. The width of the structural head will also dictate the number of doors or the thickness of fascias etc. In all the various circumstances for your doors, we will, no doubt, have a solution that best suits your needs. We can provide bi-folds, centrefolds, fixed panels, freestanding screens, sliding cavity, face of wall sliding, sliding within the opening, top hung, bottom rolling, (with a choice of tracking) and Hinged. Timber Jambs, fascias and pelmets are all supplied as required.
Retro-fit or in a new environment. Typically our doors are used as room divisions, creating new private rooms whilst allowing light to pass through. They are used in place of a wall, when you compare the cost of building an internal wall: adding jambs for a standard doorway, a standard door, architraves, skirting, cornice, and painting...Shoji is a great alternative, is attractive, and provides a light airy feel. For studio apartments, student accommodation, creating a guest room, dividing an open plan design, suiting large and irregular size doorways, confining air conditioning or heating to an area to maximise efficiency. To provide a feature to your home, apply to wardrobes, in front of glass sliding doors, or in front of windows in place of shutters or blinds, or into servery openings, Shoji has a solution for you. Why not use them as bedheads or skylights? Not only in the home, but in offices, commercial buildings, unit blocks, restaurants, cafes, beauty and massage salons, retirement villages and so on.
