Why should you choose a composite door?

Apr 5, 2022

When you are choosing a new door, there are many parts to consider. The design, the material, the exposure to the elements and security.

Our specialist team have an in-depth knowledge of the types of doors that are suitable to your specific requirements and this blog focuses on one in particular: Composite Doors.

What is a Composite Door?

Composite is a term used when an object is made of many different elements and a composite door is made from a combination of materials including uPVC, timber, and laminated door skin.

Composite doors have rapidly become the door of choice, due to their robustness, resilience, and appearance.

The door is built with a highly weatherproof and durable acrylic layer. The materials that make up a composite door are combined and glued under high-pressure conditions. This results in an external door that will outperform other styles, such as the uPVC door.

A composite door is designed to appear like a traditional wooden door, with cutting-edge benefits. Due to the materials used, it’s more durable, weather resistant and thermally efficient.

What are the benefits of a composite door?

1.Enhanced Security


Composite doors offer your property a security upgrade.

Alongside the large range of locks available and added security features, including spy holes and security chains assist in enhancing security, while still allowing for individual style.
