The Advantages of Composite Doors.

Advantages of Composite Doors

How do they compare?

Well, to put it bluntly, the main advantages of composite doors over traditional wooden doors are cost, security, maintenance and energy efficiency. uPVC will of course always have a price advantage over composite doors, but that is reflected in their inherent price-related quality levels and lack of styling options. Also, uPVC doors cannot match the levels of insulation and home security of solid-core Composite Entrance Doors.

Advantages of Composite Doors – Construction & Security

At 48mm thick, Endurance Composite Doors are up to 10% thicker than industry average. They are constructed with 17 layers of engineered timber (Kerto), cross-bonded laminates, ensuring unrivalled strength and dimensional stability.

It is also a natural choice for the best security performance, which is enhanced by the inclusion of ‘Secured By Design’ specified PAS24 standard six-pin euro locking cylinders with anti-pick, drill and bump features. The lock security of the ATK 3 Star Diamond Cylinder is so good in fact, that when fitted to any of the Endurance Door collections, there is an accompanying £2000 Security Guarantee as standard.

And that’s not all, even the door hinges comply to the PAS24:2012 and BS6375 standards. Each Endurance Glazed Composite Door utilises 4mm toughened safety glass with double or triple glazing options designed to BSEN1279 compliance. The sealed glazed units are are secured within the door using a cassette glazing system that is also approved to the PS23/24 standards.
