Why choose a composite door?
Composite doors offer the look and feel of a timber door without any of the inherent problems, such as cracking, bowing or twisting. They have a high density foam core, which offers excellent strength and thermal performance, and a durable Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin to protect from the elements. GRP is the same material that is used to make the hull of lifeboats – demonstrating just how tough it really is!
And unlike timber, composite doors are incredibly low maintenance - an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth will restore it to its original finish.
Timber doors require regular sanding and painting to ensure they stand the test of time. Composite doors need very little maintenance – in fact the occasional wipe with a damp cloth is all it takes to keep your Composite Door in pristine condition.
6 X MORE THERMALLY EFFICIENT THAN A TRADITIONAL TIMBER DOOR
Foam is a great insulator, it has been used to insulate houses for a number of years. Thanks to its high density foam core, it is very effective at keeping the cold out and the heat in. Furthermore, an insulating PVC-u strip is applied around the edge of the door, increasing the doors ability to retain heat.
