Can Composite Doors Be Broken Into?

Composite doors are incredibly difficult to break into. This is because of the inherent robustness and strength created during the manufacturing process, in which various elements are combined to create a composite door. Additionally, you can outfit your composite door with the latest and most advanced security hardware accessories. This includes the ABS Ultimate locking cylinder which intuitively responds to forced entry attempts and resists them. The lock itself is fitted securely into the composite door itself and cannot be accessed by potential intruders. As a result, Endurance composite doors cannot easily be broken into.

Our composite doors have also been tested to resist more brute force means of breaching your home. To make sure our composite doors are not easy to break into, we attempted to break through them using a sledgehammer. We’re proud to say that they resisted. Our composite doors are therefore almost impossible to break into, since they are able to resist even the brute force of a sledgehammer as well as those who may attempt to remove the lock. For total peace of mind, in the very unlikely event that our ABS Ultimate cylinder doesn’t resist a break-in attempt, we offer a £2000 security back guarantee, so you don’t have to worry at all.

Why Are Composite Doors So Difficult To Break Into?

Composite doors are significantly stronger than timber, uPVC and other front door styles in the market. Compared to these, they are much harder to break into. The manufacturing process behind a composite door subjects the components to a high-pressure process which makes them inherently strong, robust and durable.

In addition to this, composite doors are highly customisable. You can refine any and all aspects of your door design from the colour and finish to – more importantly in this case – the highly secure hardware. The inclusion of a ABS Ultimate cylinder alongside the £2000 security guarantee if it should fail will reassure you that your composite door will not easily be broken into.

Benefits of Highly Secure Composite Doors


Endurance doors are thicker than most other composite doors on the market at an impressive 48mm. In addition to this, the double and triple glazing we offer is a further 4mm of toughened safety glass. This meets the high standards of complete door protection of BSEN1279. Furthermore, meeting the requirements of PAS 24:2016, our composite doors’ hinges are concealed and protection so intruders cannot gain access by opening the door outwards. These features make our composite doors more difficult to break into.

Advanced Security

As mentioned previously, Endurance composite doors are fitted with the ABS locking cylinder and boast a comprehensive £2000 security back guarantee in the unlikely event it fails. Its resilient design is approved by the UK Police’s security initiative and is expertly integrated into the door itself to make sure potential intruders cannot access it to remove it. The ABS locking cylinder makes your composite door even more difficult to be broken into, ensuring consistently high levels of security for your home.

Robust and Resilient

These features mean that Endurance composite doors earn coveted Secured by Design approval. This UK Police initiative rigorously tests all front door styles on the market to ensure they can resist the latest and most prevalent forced entry attempts. Accreditation from this body means that Endurance composite doors are as difficult as they can be to break into. SBD’s comprehensive test attacks and assesses the hardware and durability of the composite door itself at key points to ensure structural integrity. They also use a range of tools such as a crowbar, chisel and screwdriver. Endurance doors have been proven time and again to resist all of these forced entry attempts, so you can be sure that your composite door cannot be broken into easily.

Solid To The Core Composite Doors

Endurance Doors are solid to the core. Our composite doors are very difficult to break into because of their intelligently designed structure. They boast a solid timber core compromising 17 engineered timber laminates. Their robustness and rigidity makes them able to resist even the more extreme forced entry attempts, such as when we put them to the sledgehammer test.

Thicker than conventional composite doors, our designs are even stronger and more secure thanks to the 48m cross-bonded veneered laminated structure that others do not possess. For unrivalled levels of strength and to keep your home as safe as it can possibly be, Endurance composite doors are the ideal choice.
