Why choose a composite door?
27th October 2020
When choosing which door is right for you there may be a few factors that contribute to the discussion such as cost and security. Composite doors are a popular choice in the UK but what are the benefits of this type of door?
What is a composite door made out of?
Composite doors are named as such due to the fact they are manufactured using multiple materials. These doors typically consist of a steel reinforced frame, a solid timber hardwood core which is topped with a thermo-plastic skin. The composition of a composite door means they are strong and secure and don’t succumb to the elements, and the outside layer is scratch and scuff resistant. These elements are specifically chosen for their individual properties and are combined to counteract the flaws commonly found in single-material doors.
What are the benefits of a composite door?
Composite doors have a high thermal performance, meaning reductions to your heating bills and an insulated home. Noise reduction is also increased with a composite door, providing the longevity of uPVC with the strength, solidity and warm of natural wood.
A composite door is great value for money as it is durable and has a long lifespandue to the outer plastic layer. This layer also allows for a lower maintenance option over timber doors as the colours do not fade and are easily cleaned.
In summary, composite doors are ideal if you are looking for:
- Value For Money
- Design Variety
