Solid & Secure Composite Door
Our solid core composite doors are renowned for their strength and security, our 48mm thick crossbonded veneered laminated solid timber core delivers unrivalled strength and dimensional stability and is a natural choice for high security, providing with home owners peace of mind.
Our composite doors are made up of 17 laminations making the door nearly 10% thicker than most composite doors. They have been subjected to a number of controlled security tests to replicate the most common forms of attempted burglary. Even using a sledge hammer it would be very difficult to puncture a hole through the inner core and gain access through our solid and secure composite door.
The range offers a variety of diverse elegant styles with a complementary selection of decorative glass. For more traditional Georgian style doors the Eiger and the Skiddaw are perfect for the more traditional home. If you prefer a more contemporary feel, see our Urban and Ascent collections. With our extensive composite door range there is a door to suit every personal choice, leaving you to create the perfect look to complement your home.
