The Benefits of Composite Doors
For use in residential properties, composite doors are one of the strongest, most durable and energy efficient entrance doors that you can buy – they also look amazing.
Manufactured from a combination of GRP (glass reinforced plastic), Upvc, steel reinforcing, polyurethane insulating foam and toughened safety glass, modern composite doors deserve to be classed as “top of the range”.
The choice of colours and designs available is extensive, whatever type of property you have there is sure to be something that can suit your tastes and add value to your home.
Composite Door Features:
Strength & Security
With UK statistics showing that the vast majority of burglaries & home invasions are through a front or patio door, security has never been more important.
Whilst features such as “dog bolt” hinges, multi-point locks, anti-tamper locks, steel drill plates and dead locks provide security, the strength and durability comes from reinforced frames, high impact resistant surfaces and superior weather resistance – these doors don’t warp, crack or fade.
Energy Efficiency & Low Maintenance
‘Low –E’ glass can be used in the door for the sealed units, the internal structure of the door contains solid foam that resists heat transmission.
The outer surfaces of the doors, whether it’s GRP or Upvc, only require cleaning with soapy water as necessary to keep them in great condition. Draught excluders built into the frame also help to keep in the heat and reduce your household energy bills.
Colours & Finishes:
The surface of the door can be smooth or it can be textured with a huge range of colours ranging from brilliant white through to Oak & Walnut wood-grain finishes, or if you want there are combinations of “white inside, coloured outside” doors.
