Choosing a new front door is not just a practical choice but a personal one too. With many factors to consider such as level of security, energy efficiency, style and colour it’s important to think carefully about the type of front door that best suits your home.
There are many different options to choose from when it comes to front doors from solid wooden doors to uPVC and now composite, we’re going to explain why composite doors are a great choice when deciding on your new front door.
What Is A Composite Door?
Composite doors are made from a combination of materials. Individually these materials aren’t strong enough but when combined they create an extremely strong material along with a layer of insulation between to create a much higher level of energy efficiency.
Composite doors offer exceptional strength, security, and durability, and come in a variety of contemporary and traditional styles to suit any home. Each style can be customised, allowing you to pick the perfect colour and hardware for a beautiful front door.
Key Benefits Of A Composite Door
The most common front door currently in the UK is uPVC. When comparing a uPVC front door to a composite one, the benefits and differences become clear.
Extremely High Security Locking Systems – All of the composite doors we supply and fit come equipped with high security locking systems that are insurance approved. The multi-point locks come as standard and are CE marked & manufactured to the absolute highest of standards. All of which meet the criteria of BS:EN6375 & PAS 24:2016 for both weather and security performance certification.
Rest assured with these locking systems, your front door will be as safe as possible with the highest off standards on lock technology. Both Q marked for enhanced security thereby achieving the Secure by Design status. There truly is not much better in terms of security as a standard on the market.
Superior Thermal Efficiency – Specific layers integrated into the centre of the door mean that it has superior thermal efficiency compared to other front door types including uPVC which has typically had a great thermal efficiency rating.
Composite doors are consistently rated better for energy efficiency meaning you’ll trap heat in during the cold months and keep the heat out during the warmer months, ultimately saving on your bills.
Noise Reduction – Similarly to the enhanced thermal efficiency of these doors some of the layers not only insulate your home from heat but also from sound. This means road noise and other outside annoyances will be reduced greatly.
Enhanced Durability – The composite styling of layers within the door mean that it is extremely strong and very durable. These doors can last much longer than other front door types. Not only this but they also retain their style and finish much longer.
Wide variety Of Styles – Unlike other door types such as uPVC, composite doors are much more customisable. From a wide range off styles, finishes and colours to choose from, you will be able to complement your home and neighbourhood perfectly.
