The Difference Between Composite And UPVC Doors?

You’ll read a lot about the benefits of composite doors, but how exactly are they different?

What exactly is a composite door?

Unlike uPVC doors which are purely plastic, composite doors are made from a number of different materials which are pressed and glued together under high pressure conditions. The materials selected specifically for their properties, and are specifically put together to counteract flaws common in single-material doors.

They are much thicker than uPVC doors at 44mm compared to uPVC, which are 28mm.  A good quality composite door will be made from the highest quality materials meaning they are strong, durable, secure and weather resistant.

Here’s what that might mean for you if you’re considering changing to composite…

Front door security

uPVC doors are extremely secure, but composite doors offer the highest level of security. The super-strong structural frame combined with glass-reinforced plastic, provide infallible protection against intruders. Plus, the laminated glass will not fall out of the door if broken. It will shatter but stay in place.

Variety of choice

uPVC doors can have some variety (we offer uPVC doors in white, rosewood and golden oak), but with composite doors there are far more options available. You can choose from white, rosewood, oak, green, red, blue and black. You can also decide between a range of beautiful glass options.

Look and feel

Composite doors give you the option of being more flexible with design, meaning you can tailor your door to meet the overall look and feel of your home.  You can choose a traditional or more contemporary style to suit your exact requirements.

Value for money

Composite doors are great value for money. They are excellent quality, durable and have a life span of around 35 years! They are also extremely low maintenance and easy to look after – simply give it a wipe over and oil the hinges occasionally, and your composite door will continue to look great and work as new.
