Home safety is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing exterior home doors. Secure composite doors are the most secure type of door on the marketplace. They are extremely durable and create an excellent physical barrier that will protect your home, belongings, and family.
Secure composite doors make it hard, if not impossible, for a burglar to force their way into your home. If you are looking at front doors and security is important to you, these trendy and versatile doors are the ones to put on top of your shortlist.
Here we take a look at the safety features of composite doors and explore how they keep your home safe.
Safety Features Of Composite Doors
Our secure composite doors are virtually unbreakable and house state-of-the-art locking systems. These multi-point locking systems lock the door to the strong outer frame at the top, middle, and bottom.
However, a strong locking system is only half of the battle. It will help if you ensure your front door has a strong core as well. Our secure composite doors have strength built-in. The door’s core is made from multiple durable materials, including wood, to create an almost impenetrable barrier.
When weighing up the pros and cons of a front or side door, it helps to ensure that the unit meets the security standards set out by the police, insurance companies, and British building regulations. In particular, the Secured by Design marking shows the door is made to the official police security initiative’s standards. These products follow the principles of designing out crime.
You can further enhance the qualities of secure composite doors by opting for security glass and extras such as a spy hole and security chain.
Benefits Of Composite Doors
We offer composite doors with more than fifty styles to choose from, covering the door, glass, and frame. You can easily add the wow factor and stand out from the crowd or complement the look of other homes in your neighbourhood. Side panels or a dramatic double-opening door are two styles to consider.
The units require no maintenance and have a long life of 30 years or more. They can also withstand anything the weather throws at them. Their weathertight and insulating characteristics help you save on your energy bills by keeping the cold weather outside. Typically, they are 10% thicker than other door types, adding to their thermal efficiency to keep your home warmer.
A composite door may be slightly more expensive than a uPVC door, but they are certainly worth the investment.
