What Is A Composite Door?

For both urban and rural homes alike the front door is the focal point, protecting the household from intruders and the elements whilst still being affordable and reflecting the homes' individuality. 

When purchasing your new front door there are many factors to take into consideration, such as the level of security, quality, materials used and the overall design. Many people choose to go for the cheaper alternatives such as a UPVC doors, compromising on their home's security. Hardwood doors may be strong but they need a lot of maintenance throughout their life span, such as painting and weather sealing. 

While many people tend to choose the cheaper alternatives to save on the overall cost, these can end up causing problems that go far beyond their initial guarantee period and while homeowners may not realise it, there is a great way to get the best of all worlds between security, strength and style.

So what exactly are composite doors?

Composite doors are made from a multitude of materials that are pressed together and glued under high pressure to create a highly insulated door that is virtually indistinguishable from wooden doors. Homeowners have been trusting Endurance Doors to protect their homes and families for well over a decade.

The Door

Endurance Doors are 10% thicker than most standard doors. Made up of 17 layers of BBA accredited, engineered LVL (laminated veneered lumber) it offers lateral strength. The 48mm thick core delivers unrivalled dimensional stability to eliminate the possibility of warping over time. In addition to this, each door is manufactured with an integrated Moisture Barrier System in the base of the door. This extruded cellular profile can protect your door against water damage, delamination and helps to maintain the doors integrity over time.
