Composite doors are more popular than ever, offering a sturdy, secure, robust and stylish choice to be used for internal or external doorways in your home. A preferred choice for many homeowners due to their durability, strength, security, and thermal efficiency are just a few benefits of composite doors.

Our composite doors are made from the strongest materials and available in various styles in colours, so you’re sure to find the perfect composite door for your home

 

What are composite doors and what are they made of?

So, what is a composite door? And what kind of materials are used to make them? Composite doors are made from a selection of different materials, which can include timber, plastics and uPVC. All of the materials are fused together, resulting in an extremely strong door, making them great for external use!

 

Composite doors are made up of the following materials:

 

  • Unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride (uPVC)
  • Timber Core
  • Insulating Foam Core
  • Glass-Reinforced Plastic (GRP)

 

No matter if you require modern composite doors for a new build home or more traditional styles for a timeless property, we have a range of colours and designs to choose from!

Composite Door Features & Benefits

Style & Colour:

 

Our GRP ‘through colour’ doors are available in a choice of nine popular RAL colour finishes including black (beck brown), white and traditional solid wood grain finishes. These are not painted skins, which can be subject to inconsistency in the finish. Each finish is enhanced by the high wood grain definition made possible by our thermoset process.

 

Double Rebate:

 

Double rebate doors are easier to install and adjust on-site compared to single rebated doors. The double rebate allows for greater tolerances in movement between the door leaf and frame during installation, just like installing a standard uPVC door. A double rebate feature also means our doors are fully sealed so that we have better protection against water penetration, and improved weather and acoustic performance compared to normal single rebated doors. Single rebated doors require a precise fit and good alignment with equal spacing around the door during installation.

 

Construction:

 

The WHS Halo door is the thickest on the market today at 68mm. In fact 30% more than the standard 44mm offered by other brands. Which makes ours not only much stronger but also gives superior thermal performance with a U value of 0.85Wm2K on a solid door and improved acoustic sound performance.

 

This is made possible by the high-density polyurethane foam, which forms a solid composite construction to fill the assembly, adding to an almost impenetrable door that is warp-free and weather resistant. It makes ours more energy-efficient, saving the homeowner on heating bills.

 

Timber-Free Construction:

 

There is no timber involved. Instead, environmentally friendly uPVC sections with bespoke full steel reinforcement substrates are used for the door skins to be applied to. The advantages compared to doors using a timber substrate is that ours offer greater rigidity with less risk of twisting, swelling, shrinking, rotting or warping of the door itself.

 

Made to Measure:

 

The substrate and door skin for each door is cut to size at our factory, which means our doors are made to measure. Timber substrate doors require the fabricator to cut the door to size from a stock hold of standard sizes. Our fabricators are not required to hold stock.

 

Low Threshold:

 

Enhance accessibility and aesthetics with our high-performance aluminum low threshold option, designed to accommodate wheelchair users and prams while maintaining a sleek appearance.

 

British Standards Specification Approved:

 

Our solid strength doors are British made through and through. Built to give you confidence and built to last. Ours outperform the most stringent and recognised consumer British standards and are manufactured under ISO14001 Environmental Management System licence. All components and extruded parts are manufactured in the UK.

 

PAS 023 & 024:

 

Doors pass the latest PAS023 standard at the highest level, which measures a high resistance to air and water penetration*. Doors pass the PAS024 security standard, which measures resistance to a high level against forced mechanical and human entry*.

 

Our commitment to security is unwavering, with composite doors that surpass PAS023 and PAS024 standards for air and water resistance, as well as resistance against forced entry. Additionally, our doors meet the stringent requirements of ‘Secured By Design,’ recognised by the Association of British Insurers.

Environmental Considerations:

 

Make a sustainable choice for your home with composite doors designed to reduce energy loss by up to 85% compared to traditional timber doors. Our CFC-free polyurethane foam insulation and timber-free construction minimise environmental impact without compromising performance.

 

Door Frame:

 

The foundation of strength lies in our steel-reinforced PVCu profile extrusion door frames, engineered to withstand impact and meet stringent quality standards.

 

Hardware & Glazing:

 

Personalise your composite door with our wide selection of decorative glazing options and obscurity levels. All of our options are compliant with Secure By Design standards for enhanced security.
