Reinforced structure delivers outstanding reliability
Composite doors have a core predominantly made up from a veneer, which is an extremely vigorous wood which is resistant to water damage. This guarantees a firm inner structure for the composite doors. The core is then laminated with a solid coating, this then reinforces the stout infrastructure whilst maintaining s a sturdy shape.
The composite door slab is typically 44mm thick, which is nearly twice as thick as the average uPVC door. This extra thickness of solid material, produces that extra protection against burglars. It is well known that it is possible for a thief to cut through a basic uPVC door in only a few minutes. This is why we would always recommend a composite door due to its impassable strength and thickness. This increased door thickness of a composite front door, offers reliability, strength, whilst maintaining shape and colour for many years to come.
Composite doors U-Values
U-Value is the term used whilst measuring heat loss. Composite doors have an outstanding energy efficiency value due to the thickness and materials used. As the composite doors are much wider than of an average front door, then this increased thickness provides an even better barrier against cold draughts. Composite doors are also filled with outstanding thermal insulation, which helps to reflect cold out whist retaining warm air within the home. The composite door could save you a lot of money on your heating bills whilst maintaining a warm and comfy home during the cold winter months.
All of our composite doors exceed the current Building Regulation, which came into force in 2010. Upgrading your composite door glazing to thermal glass will make your door even more energy efficient, with a U-value of 1 W/m2K. While many other door manufactures will struggle to meet the basic standard of 1.8W/m2K.
Composite doors have an outer layer commonly known as GRP (glass reinforced plastic). This GRP skin protects the composite door slab whilst offering protection from weathering. The GRP skin offers a realistic wooden effect to the composite door, which can be shown using a variety of different colours and finishes.
Beautifully Designed Doors
Sometimes it can be difficult chosen the correct door to match your existing windows. However, these composite are sculptured to best match our uPVC window profiles so you can guarantee a beautiful looking home. In regards to the window insulation, many poor designed front doors are only single glazed. With these composite doors the glazing regardless of how small or large the glazing are, they are all double glazed. There is even an upgraded facility to allow this glazing to be ultra-warm if required. So if you buying a replacement front door then the composite door will guarantee an outstanding energy efficiency.
Composite doors do not fade in colour.
Our composite doors will never fade or bleach like cheaper versions of composite doors or other door designs. The reason for this is simple, the colour is not applied to the outer surface. When these composite doors are manufactured, the colour is applied within the GRP. As the GRP is extremely robust and weather proofed, then there can be no deterioration of colour to the door.
