If you have found this page as a result of performing a search for 'uPVC front door', then you may want to change your search strategy - namely, searching instead for the keyword 'Composite Door'!
We aren't promoting the Composite Door out of some wish to particularly discredit uPVC front doors... the reality, after all, is that this type of door has served British households with distinction for many years. Nonetheless, it does also have to be said that in the early 21st century, the Composite Door is a very real, functional and importantly, good value alternative.
As the term 'Composite Door' suggests, this type of door is made out of various composite materials in order to create the perfect blend of strength, security, style, functionality and value. Whilst, if you are used to searching for uPVC front doors, you may initially imagine that a Composite Door would simply be too expensive, if not downright unnecessary, here at Global Door, we can give you several good reasons why this is far from the case.
Composite Door: a truly safe and secure uPVC alternative
As mentioned above, a Composite Door has been designed with a high level of safety and security as amongst its most specific aims. Particularly here at Global Door, we ensure that we continue to live up to our billing as the No 1 Composite Door company in the UK by only offering doors that have been created with a sturdy structure, using the most recent hardware.
The end result is a good one. Not only is a Composite Door from Global Door designed and manufactured to such a standard as to be able to offer an expected life cycle of 33 years - which becomes 35 years if you use oil to maintain it - but it is also finished with a coat of GRP. This latter touch ensures an especially high level of weatherproofing, with the overall Composite Door certainly a stronger alternative to the popular uPVC door.
Other touches that ensure that a Composite Door from Global Door is a safe, strong and secure one include the timber frame and multi-point locking mechanism that each one comes with, the latter courtesy of Yale. Indeed, it's also possible to upgrade these locks to Secured By Design Approved status.
Composite Door: make sure that yours looks good!
Now seems like a good time to point out that there is a 'Design Your Door' feature on our site that allows you to discover precisely how your Composite Door will look when you order it from Global Door. The reality is that there are actually billions of options for you to consider when you choose to order from Global Door, which ensures that the final Composite Door brilliantly complements the appearance of your property as a whole.
That latter point is an important one, as it is unlikely that you will fully appreciate even a Composite Door that incorporates the very best internal features, if it has a jarring aesthetic relationship with the rest of your home. That's why we have an assortment of Composite Door designs from you to choose from, including the traditional looking Cottage door design or the slightly more contemporary-styled 4 Square door.
You can further customise the external appearance of your Composite Door by specifying certain glass patterns, extras and accessories, which may include thermal glass, laminated glass, side panels... the list goes on. Oh, and there are also 7 colours to choose from for your Composite Door. Bear in mind, too, that whichever one you choose, every single Composite Door that we sell also comes with a quality woodgrain finish so that you can look forward to enjoying the pleasing appearance of a traditional timber door, without any of the maintenance headaches that are associated with one.
