The Office of National Statistics has found that 73% of home burglaries take place through a door.  Protecting your family, home and its belongings is vitally important so it’s reassuring to know that our composite doors are arguably the most secure on the market, featuring insurance (*£2000 direct to homeowner guarantee) and Police approved locking systems. To avoid becoming a burglary statistic we offer a high-performance security lock, like the ABS Master or Ultion. With anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump features, and British Kitemark certifications, you can enjoy added peace of mind that your home is safe and secure.

3. Specification

The specification of our timber composite doors is unmatched in the composite door market, thanks to the unique solid timber core construction of our doors and exclusive trading agreements with specialist partners for door furniture and hardware. Our 48mm deep doors are also 10% thicker than our nearest competitors, helping make them more secure and energy efficient.

We can offer 256 door colour combinations and a huge range of glazing and hardware options. These range from contemporary colours to luxurious and life-like woodgrains. We can also offer both a chamfered and a sculptured door frame and these are also available in 18 colour combinations. We believe that you should only be limited by your imagination when it comes to a beautiful composite door.

Composite doors are compiled of several materials including polyurethane foam that offers the highest levels of thermal insulation, it also acts as a soundproofing agent to limit the noise from traffic and the street. We regularly test our doors to check how thermally efficient they are, our results show that our doors can achieve U-values as low as 0.8 W/m2.K, in comparison to timber doors that average 3.0W/m2.K. These impressive U-values help to save money on heating and energy bills.

4. Made in Britain

Our unique solid core timber composite doors are designed and engineered in the UK to the highest quality standards giving customers choice and quality time after time.

5. Benefits of a traditional timber door without the maintenance

No more sanding, painting, or varnishing… a timber composite door offers customers the look and feel of a timber door, but without the maintenance. Timber composite doors are incredibly easy to care for and they will not discolour, fade, or warp. They simply need a wipe down with warm soapy water with a soft cloth to remove any grime or dirt. Also, all moving parts, such as hinges, handles, knockers etc, will require regular lubrication every 6 months.
