What Exactly Are Composite Doors?
As a relatively new style of door, not a lot of people know what they are. However, it is simple enough to understand.
Composite doors get their name through being made out of a composition of different materials:
GRP (glass reinforced plastic) – a versatile, light, and strong material that is great for thermal insulation. Typically, GRP is easily shaped, and is very strong in comparison to their weight.
Solid Timber – Cut straight from the tree, and includes all the natural knots and imperfections. It is strong and an effective insulator against both heat and noise.
uPVC – Strong, flexible, and brilliant at keeping in heat. uPVC is very common in home improvements, and is a great material to provide a number of benefits.
Overall, each material brings a separate advantage to these fantastic doors.
