Composite doors are the most popular choice of exterior door in the UK, and when we delve into the features and benefits of composite doors, it’s not hard to understand why more and more Cheltenham residents are having composite doors installed in their homes.

What is a composite door?

A composite door is made from a combination of materials that can offer a stronger, thicker door that is more durable and has a quality of finish.

Composite doors are able to combine the beauty of a natural woodgrain finish with the practicality, thermal efficiency, and security benefits of modern materials. They are a stylish way for you to increase the comfort and aesthetic of your home.

Features of our composite doors;

  • 12 door style ranges
  • Stable door available
  • Thousands of design combinations
  • Decorative or frosted glass panels
  • Authentic timber look option
  • Scratch-resistant fibreglass coating
  • High-security locks and frame

Composite doors offer your Cheltenham home thermal efficiency

Our innovative composite door range is 17% more thermally efficient than timber doors, thanks to their unique structure, naturally insulating uPVC frame and remarkable weatherproofing system. Sealing in valuable energy, composite doors drastically reduce potentially costly heat loss via draughts; proactively saving on heating bills in the long-run.

Composite doors offer unparalleled security for your Cheltenham home

Due to the intelligent combination of premium grade materials, our composite doors offer you an impressive degree of security for your Cheltenham property.

All of our composite doors are made with security in mind from the start. With a high-density foam core door slab, within a steel-reinforced uPVC frame, our composite doors cannot be broken into, even with the aid of a police battering ram.

What makes our composite doors so secure?

  • Impact-resistant GRP (glass reinforced plastic) skin. GRP is also known as fibreglass and is the same material used to make fishing boats in the North Sea which is a good indication as to how strong and reliable it is.
  • High-quality multi-point locking
  • Crimebeater anti-pick, anti-bump, and anti-drill locks
  • The enhanced security standards
  • We use market leading Yale locks
