Starting the new year with composite doors
As the New Year starts, many homeowners will be considering investing in new windows and doors. With security being such a key concern these days, composite doors are becoming increasingly popular. In this article, we’re going to take a look into the many features and benefits of composite doors and what makes them a great investment for your clients.
What are composite doors?
A composite door, as the name suggests, is a door that is comprised of several different types of materials. Some of the common materials used in a composite door are uPVC, wood, as well as insulating foam and glass reinforcement. This results in a door that is well insulated and secure.
At TruFrame our composite doors use reinforced 4mm GRP skins which not only provide a tough outer shell but also a wood-like appearance which requires minimal maintenance.
Additionally, the multi-chambered profile and PU foam core help to provide unbeatable thermal efficiency.
What are the benefits of composite doors?
Composite doors offer the highest level of security available for residential customers which are far superior to their timber counterparts. This is due to the multi-layered construction, which includes the resilient GRP outer frame, Liniar’s uPVC reinforced chamber profile and a PU foam core which acts additionally to absorb shock damage. This makes the TruFrame composite door the perfect home security door.
The entire TruFrame composite range is 3-star British Kitemark certified as standard. This certification demonstrates that a product has met the security standards set by the British Standards Institute. As well as this we partner with Yale to provide world-class locking systems.
Our GRP skin doors (glass reinforced plastic) are completely resistant to sun bleaching and fading, as well as being resistant to scratch damage, warping, cracking and bowing. All of these features combine to provide a product that needs little to no maintenance and is incredibly hard wearing.
An occasional wipe down with a damp cloth is all a TruFrame composite door will ever need.
Excellent thermal efficiency
With an insulating foam core and a strong outer frame, the multi-layered construction of a composite door provides not only strength and resilience but also a tough defence against the elements.
The Liniar multi-chambered profile utilises size-optimised chambers to break up convection currents, locking in the warm air and preventing cold air entering the home. As well as this an additional ‘thermal dam’ provides a wall against heat transferal.
With a wide range of styles and colours to choose from, your customers will have the same extensive range of customisability options available across the entire TruFrame range.
The entryway to a home will be a very personal choice for your client. With TruFrame composite doors each product can be specified to their exact specification and delivered in record time.
TruFrame composite doors provide unbeatable security, style and energy efficiency. Find out more about our range of secure doors and how our products provide peace of mind. For more information about TruFrame products and services, get in touch with our team.
