How secure is a composite door?

If you’re thinking about getting a new front door for your home, it’s important to consider all the factors before making a decision. One of the most important things to consider is the level of security the door provides.

A good front door should welcome your family and friends in while keeping unwanted visitors out. Unfortunately, burglars often use the front door as an entry point, especially during the winter months. This makes it the perfect time to evaluate the condition of your front door and upgrade to a high-quality composite door.

In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at how secure a composite door is as well as its other benefits.

What is a composite door?

When considering a composite door it’s important to understand exactly what it is. A composite door is made from a combination of materials including a layer of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), a warm polyurethane foam core and a uPVC and steel reinforcement. This innovative combination of materials offers a door that is strong, durable, and fully weatherproof.

Are composite doors secure?

Composite doors offer excellent home security and are widely regarded as one of the most secure doors on the market. Expertly crafted, composite doors are renowned for their outstanding strength and stability. Composite doors come with uPVC and steel reinforcement and when combined with multipoint locking systems and quality hardware, they work hard to keep intruders at bay. All these features make composite doors an excellent choice for homeowners who are looking for high quality security benefits. With a composite door, you can rest assured that you and your loved ones are safe from any unwanted visitors.

What are the benefits of a composite door?

As well as being highly secure, composite doors offer numerous benefits including;

  • Aesthetic Appeal– Composite doors are available in a huge range of customisation options including your choice of style and colour. With so many options available it makes it incredibly easy to find a door that enhances the overall aesthetic of your home.
  • Long Lasting Durability– Crafted from a unique combination of materials, composite doors have a lifespan of 30 years or more, so you won’t need to replace your composite door for many years to come.
  • Low Maintenance– Another benefit of composite doors is how low maintenance they are. Compared to traditional wooden doors that require regular maintenance, composite doors only require a simple wipe-down with soapy water to keep them in pristine condition. They’re a great choice, especially for those who don’t want to spend hours cleaning.
  • Energy Efficient– Additionally, composite doors provide excellent heat retention due to their thickness. Composite doors effectively work to conserve energy which will not only help to keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year round but it will also help to save you money in the long run.
