What is a composite front door?

Composite doors are made up of a combination of materials including a solid timber core and uPVC materials. Each material is chosen strategically for its different properties, focused together to result in one of the strongest door materials currently on the market.

Low in maintenance, high in security. Composite doors are both multi-layered and dense, making them airtight within the frame, which increases both the levels of thermal efficiency and security, giving you and your family peace of mind about the protection of your home.
