What is a Composite Door?
It has not taken long for consumers to realise that composite doors are the doors of the future. The door industry may seem far removed from the technological sector but in fact it is the complete opposite. The technology sector has new innovations almost every week and while this is not the case with doors, there are changes occurring at a rapid pace. One of the most apparent is the popularity of composite doors. They combine the best properties of various materials in order to make the perfect door. Flaws from other door types have been analyzed and fixed to produce a superior product that is fully adjustable and has the same Grade A energy efficiency as our windows.
The average composite door consists of aluminium, GRP, UPVC, polyurethane foam, steel and hardwood. It has been discovered that although UPVC and wood are excellent materials in their own right, doors made exclusively from them are riddled with flaws. For example, neither material is particularly adept at surviving harsh weather conditions. This is a particularly relevant concern in the UK now because of the increasingly dreadful winter conditions we are experiencing. Wood is also difficult to clean and can be damaged relatively easily. UPVC is simple to clean and as Central Scotland Joinery uses virgin upvc they will not fade in the sunglight unlike the cheaper alternatives.
The exterior of composite doors normally have a hardwood frame which is covered by GRP, a material that doesn’t fade, crack or bend. GRP can be painted and made to resemble a classy wooden door. Stains that form on the exterior of composite doors are removed in seconds thanks to their easy clean surface.
Inside this frame lies polyurethane foam, a material that becomes incredibly hard once it is exposed to air. Compare this to UPVC doors that have Styrofoam contained within, hardly a durable enough material to prevent someone from breaking in. The hard core of a composite door makes it almost impossible to break through unless you’re willing to attract a lot of neighbourhood attention! Some composite doors weigh as much as a fully grown adult male so you can imagine their toughness.
Most composite doors are a minimum of 4 cm thick though there are even larger options available. The average composite door is more than twice as thick as its UPVC equivalent. The combination of this thickness and the unique properties of each material used to create these doors also leads to a significant saving in energy. Less heat escapes the home which is good news for those looking to trim their heating bill. With a cold winter likely to be ahead, composite doors form a potent first line of defence against the ravages of frost and snow.
The front and back doors of your home are the key entry points. Protect these with composite doors and keep thieves at bay. They will not fancy the challenge of trying to enter a home that is as well protected as a castle. Composite doors are also attractive looking, save energy and come with our ten year insurance backed guarantee.
