Composite door what are they and what are their benefits?
One of the most frequently asked questions on the Global Door web site and not the easiest one to answer when faced with the number of options that are available to the prospective purchaser of a new door.
Maybe the question Composite doors what are they should start with the basic question what is a door, the dictionary states that "it is a opening or entry into a house by which persons enter, the frame and door are made of boards or other material that shuts such an opening and usually turns on hinges" and for "composite" the same dictionary states “made up of distinct parts elements or substances”
Nothing about security, nothing about protection from the elements and nothing about controlled sound or energy transfer requirements all of which are key components of composite door.
At Global Door the doors we supply meet all of the above and much much more.
The Global door answer to the question comes in two parts –
Part 1 Composite Doors what are they? They are a door manufactured with extremely modern machinery and techniques and comprise a hardwood inner frame reinforced for rigidity, set around a thermally insulated polyurethane foam core and clad each side with a 2mm thick GRP through coloured GRP skin to prevent warp, twist bow etc and eliminate the need for years of decoration. Plus they come in a range of twenty styles, seven wood grain colours, a multitude of glass options and even a choice of three colours for your accessories.
Part 2 Composite Doors what are their benefits? Because they are of a solid bonded and reinforced construction and they are manufactured to a greater thickness they are stronger and more secure than UPVC doors. The insulated polyurethane core substantially reduces sound transfer and more importantly significantly reduces heat loss. The 2mm GRP coating provides a wipe clean surface that will look great for years and never require redecoration.
All of the above answers the question in principle but we at Global go that one step further you do not have to believe what we say, but you probably will be believe the independent testing authorities we us e to ensure we give you the door you require –
Part 3 Composite doors what are the standards they have to meet?
