Offering up to six times the insulation of a timber door, a composite door combines the look of timber with superb thermal performance by using multiple materials to create a high-functioning "composite".
Composite doors boast a unique, attractive design whilst also offering homeowners greater levels of security and thermal performance.
Why install a composite door?
These days, we all worry about how much energy our homes use. The rising cost of our energy bills and our impact on the environment means we want (and need) to keep our energy consumption to a minimum. One of the best ways to do this is to choose thermally efficient products that keep warmth in and cold out, saving both money and emissions.
When it comes to thermally efficient doors, our GRP composite door is the best choice you can make.
Contact us today to have your bespoke composite door designed, manufactured and installed.
What are the benefits of composite doors?
Composite doors are made from a variety of materials including PVCu, wood, insulating foam, and glass reinforced plastic (GRP). This combination of materials, with frames made from Liniar profiles, results in a very strong and secure door which boasts excellent heat retention and thermal performance.
The overall advantages of GRP composite doors are:
- Attractive to the eye
- Provide a warm welcome for your guests (and yourself!)
- Great energy efficiency and high thermal performance
- Low maintenance and easy to care for
- Strong and secure
- Long lasting with great weather resistance
Composite doors are both pleasing to the eye and excellent at keeping in warmth and keeping out draughts. Grab your bespoke GRP door today from Balhousie via the links below.
Our composite doors can be personalised to suit the design of your home and individual needs. Take a look below at the colour options available for composite doors.
Our surveyors can also recommend which colours and designs best suit your needs during an at-home consultation.
Why Choose Composite Doors from Balhousie?
Manufactured to the highest calibre our energy efficient fibreglass composite doors provide excellent thermal and sound insulation. Its strength comes from the construction of its sub-frame in solid, water-resistant polymer material, reinforced with Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). The depression moulded GRP skins, giving the authentic timber look, are then bonded to this sub-frame and its core filled with high density 100% CFC-free polyurethane foam.
All our doors are fitted with high security multi-point locking as standard and are independently tested to the requirements of PAS 24 and Secured by Design.
Each PVCu product in the Linear range is made from lead-free, energy efficient, recyclable PVCu, making it a sustainable choice. Linear works alongside the Environment Agency to shrink its carbon footprint and has achieved ISO14001 accreditation for excellence in Environmental Management.
No. Standard composite doors are typically 44mm deep and feature a foam inner that makes them reassuringly strong and secure.
At 48mm deep, Solid Core doors are slightly thicker than their standard counterparts and are made from laminated layers of timber. This makes them stronger and more durable
Solid Core composite doors on the other hand are deeper (48mm) and are made from laminated layers of timber, making them more secure and long-lasting than standard offerings. They are also finished in a UPVC skin and are therefore available in a variety of colours.
Yes, you can have a different colour and/or finish on either side of your door, the choice is yours! An Balhousie advisor will be able to discuss the colour options available for each door and work with you to create a unique door ideal for your property.
You’ll get three keys as standard. But if you need any more, just let us know when you order your new door.
