The composite door was first developed in the 1990’s and it quickly became a rival door solution to the traditional UPVC door.
Amongst the different materials used to create a composite door are UPVC and wood, plus it has a GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) skin on its exterior. Right in the heart of a composite door is thick polyurethane foam.
Composite door buyers are assured of at least three major plus points:
The thickness of a composite door frame singles it out from most replacement door offerings. This unrivalled thickness makes a composite door extremely difficult to force open when locked, particularly as it comes with a sophisticated locking system incorporated into the design. This durability won’t diminish as a composite door can handle prolonged exposure to the weather without it affecting performance.
Customers are often astounded when they discover that the composite doors in our showrooms aren’t crafted from timber. A composite door is amazingly similar in appearance to a timber door only a composite door doesn’t suffer from the ageing process as much as a timber door. It has a woodgrain effect running throughout the entire design and that’s what confuses people into thinking that it’s made using wood.
Who has the time to be maintaining their front door nowadays? You have to be prepared to do that though if you own a traditional front door, otherwise it becomes less secure and unsightly. Composite doors require barely any maintenance – wiping the design with a wet cloth should be enough to remove any dirt or marks and you only need to lubricate any moving parts once in a while.
