What actually makes up a composite door?

13th August 2021 |

Composite doors have become an increasingly popular entrance door choice and are revered for delivering unrivalled style and security to your property.

Composite doors look remarkably like traditional timber doors and come in a variety of different colours and styles. Requiring little to no maintenance, composite doors are engineered with security and durability in mind. Recognisable by their bold, vibrant colour and stylish design, composite doors are ideal for delivering optimal energy efficiency to your home, with superb resistance from the elements and adverse weather. Suitable for all types of homes, composite doors are also fully customisable with various hardware and design options to match your own personal taste.

Composite doors have a lifespan of at least 30 years, and tend to outperform other entranceway options with premium security, thermal retention and style – but what actually makes up a composite door?

Solid construction

Composite doors are manufactured using a number of different materials. They are also virtually maintenance-free.

Unlike uPVC doors which are engineered entirely from plastic, composite doors feature a strong timber core. Virtually impenetrable without a key, composite doors also benefit from a durable outer layer engineered from Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP). This resilient layer prevents fading from harsh sunlight, as well as rotting or any other kind of adverse deterioration that would compromise the energy efficiency and security of your property.

At Majestic Designs, we install Endurance composite doors. Featuring a 48mm timber core, Endurance composite doors are industry renowned for their superior performance. Rigorous testing ensures your composite door will resist even the harshest weather conditions as well as sustained attempts at forced entry – in fact, the solid timber inner of an Endurance composite door has proven to withstand repeated attacks with a sledgehammer. Endurance composite doors are also fitted with ATK star locking systems which are accredited by Secured by Design for premium home security.

Engineered with durability and resilience in mind, your entranceway will keep your home secure from the elements and unwanted intruders for years to come.

Other benefits of composite doors

Optimal energy efficiency and security

Engineered with energy efficiency in mind, composite doors are ideal for retaining high energy efficiency and thermal ratings in your property. Ensuring your doors and windows are energy efficient is crucial if you’re looking to cut the cost of your utility bills and keep your home warm and dry.

Customise your door

Composite doors are engineered to your exact specifications and can be customised to suit your personal tastes and the aesthetics of your property. Composite doors are available in a range of colours and styles and feature an extensive range of hardware to choose from. Along with letter plates and doorknobs, you can also customise the glass style and shape – so you won’t have to compromise on style or visual aesthetics when it comes to your entranceway. Composite doors combine modern technology and functionality with elegant, stylish designs.

A range of colours

Composite doors are available in a range of stylish colours to match the aesthetics of your home and your unique tastes. Opt for a traditional, classic finish with Golden Oak. Add a splash of colour with Rich Red or Chartwell Green. Or for a contemporary look choose a moody black or grey.

Secured by Design

Secured by Design is an official police security initiative that works to provide a recognised standard for home security products. Essentially, if a product is approved by Secured by Design, then that product has been given the stamp of approval by the UK Police Service. Most composite doors, such as Endurance composite doors, have been accredited by Secured by Design for their premier security and safety features.
