Why Choose a GRP Composite Door?

Hardwood, uPVC or GRP Composite?

Lets start at the bottom. The ugly plastic uPVC external door. This kind of door was very popular in the 1980's as a cheap alternative to timber. However people soon became aware they were also forfeiting insulation and security as these doors are very light weight and easily broken into!
Hardwood and timber doors have been around almost as long as buildings themselves and although manufacturing tecniques have changed slightly over the years they offer great, natural insulation and solid security. The only down side to a timber door is a small amount of maintenance to maintain the doors life span, such as painting or varnishing annually.
GRP Composite is the latest step in the door world, offering very high security and some of the best energy efficiency. Not to mention easy installation and very low maintenance.
Take a look at how they stack up to each other in the table below...


Fitting a door will not always guarantee your customer the latest security. Burglars are pretty good at finding the weak points, but the ERA cylinder-free lock is so secure, we guarantee you it won’t happen to your new composite door.

With a traditional mortice key, the door doesn’t need a locking cylinder because the key engages directly to the lock. No cylinder means no chance of your composite door being opened by a burglar snapping or bumping the cylinder.

We also offer £500 cash and a free replacement composite door should your door be broken in to!
