What is a Composite Door?

Providing a safe environment at home for you and your family is one of the key reasons why homeowners keep choosing our Solidor Composite Doors.

What is a Composite door though? Well, Composite doors are the newest type of doors used in homes and they were designed to combat common flaws found in traditional single material doors which means they are the most secure and durable type of door.

Solidor was founded in 2004 and their beautiful designs and incomparable security have ever since then made them one of the UK’s leading suppliers of Composite Doors.

Benefits of a Composite Door

Composite doors have many benefits, they are low maintenance yet much more energy efficient than single material doors. In addition to this, they are:

  • Highly weather resistant
  • Much thicker, more durable and solid than traditional doors
  • Incredibly secure
  • Visually appealing in a range of design and colours
  • Thermally resistant

What are Composite Doors Made of?

Composite doors, unlike single material doors, are made from a combination of materials which have been specifically selected due to their beneficial purposes in order to create a door which inherits all the best qualities of each material and none of the flaws. There are some variations dependent on brand but generally these materials include:

  • Steel inner reinforcement
  • Weather resistant PVCu outer frame
  • 48mm timber core

Due to the combination of materials used, composite doors are extremely durable and won’t react to seasonal changes or adverse weather. Composite doors still look great due to their wooden appearance, but their specially crafted range of materials mean they won’t fade or require maintenance like a typical wooden door would.

Security Guarantee

Undoubtedly, one of a Composite door’s greatest features is increased security. Ours are made up of an exclusive 48mm timber core and comes with an Ultion locking system as standard making them one of the toughest and most secure doors on the market today. Ultion stands for ‘ultimate in locking protection’, which they certainly are. In the event of burglary by means of picking, drilling or snapping, the lock automatically detects the attack and will go into lockdown mode making it virtually impossible for the trespasser to continue the attack. Ultion is certain of this and as a guarantee they offer £1000 if the burglar manages to snap the lock and enter your home.
