How Secure are Composite Doors?

Attlas supplies a wide range of composite doors for your home. With many designs to choose from, they are proving popular because they have many options for you to consider. They also have many advantages, but you might wonder about their security. In this article, we will explore how they will improve your home security and what they are made from. To first understand what makes a door secure, it is important to recognise what is a composite door. These doors are created with robust materials such as Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) and a solid foam core, protecting your home from cold weather. This helps a composite door become one of the most secure doors on the market because they will not bow to violent winds or even robust knocks. This enhances security, making it easier to ward off intruders in the long term. Glass Reinforced Plastic is an incredibly lightweight material made from glass fibres. It’s cheaper than steel and used to make boats and cars, demonstrating its durability and strength. In comparison to uPVC, this helps the material last for a very long time. All these materials are important because they secure the doors, along with the glazing that comes with the doors. The glazing is fitted tightly within the frame, so it won’t be able to be easily pried open by intruders. Furthermore, the doors will also offer superb thermal efficiency, which keeps natural heat indoors and cold air outside, helping you save money on your energy bills in the long run. This will allow you to spend money on the things that you need.  The doors are equipped with advanced double glazing, creating a robust thermal barrier that traps natural heat indoors and leaves cold air outside. This is ideal in tough conditions because our composite doors offer extremely low u Values between 1.5 and 1.8, so you can deal with even the toughest weather conditions. Not only will this keep your home safe, but you will also be reducing your carbon footprint and protecting the environment. Composite doors bring together the natural look of timber with the robust material of uPVC, giving you the best of both worlds. This means your home will get unbeatable strength and functionality without sacrificing style. Compared to uPVC doors, your composite door is a lot stronger in every aspect because they avoid many issues plaguing both timber and uPVC doors. Furthermore, the doors are equipped with multi-point locking systems and advanced shootbolt techniques, which will stop even the most hardened criminal from entering the property. You can also customise your door by getting handles with a firm grip. The doors are also modern because they meet both Secured by Design and Ps 24 accreditations. Secured by Design is an initiative backed by the police which ensures that every building is safe to live in. This ensures that you will have the strongest protection if you choose a composite door. Another thing that sets our composite doors apart is that they come with a Kitemark Euro bolt system made from hardened steel. The cylinder will protect the door against sudden movements from outside, including drilling, twisting, pulling, and bumping. Moreover, they also feature some of the most durable locking systems on the market, including a deadbolt with two finger bolts and hooks. This helps give your home the best protection against unwanted intruders. What’s more, you can enhance the security even further by including a spy hole which lets you see who is at the door. Our composite doors are built with your needs in mind, so they come in a wide range of styles, meaning you can increase the glazing and security of your home if you desire.
