The 44mm thick door leaf is comprised of high-density polyurethane foam, along with a timber sub-frame for extra strength. Aluminium inserts are also used on both sides to prevent the door from warping or bowing. The doors are then finished off with a 2.5mm GRP outer skin, which is completely immune to sun fade and bleaching. These high impact durable skins are injected with a ‘through colour’ process to ensure that no scratches or blemishes are visible.
Super strong, high security, easy maintenance, excellent thermal efficiency, a lifespan of at least 35 years and the general look and feel of a composite door make it the most popular door choice on the market.
Both sides of the door has a 2.5mm grp (glass reinforced plastic) outerskin that requires very little maintenance – only an occasional wipe clean with a damp cloth will keep the door looking like new and it will never require painting.
Composite doors have now become the preferred choice of entrance doors for many people due to the major advantages that Composite doors have over the alternative wooden doors.
UPVC is based on polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the most versatile polymers found in the century. PVC today finds application in almost all facet of our life, from daily use to highly sophisticated life saving applications. This flexibility of PVC is leveraged through a unique formulation to prepare a special UPVC blend for windows and doors.
UPVC (where ‘U’ stands for unplasticized) is one of the most preferred window framing material across the world. The material comes in a range of colour, is low maintenance and offers benefits which no material so far has matched. This has helped UPVC garner more than 50% market share in countries like UK, USA where it is also known as vinyl or vinyl siding.
UPVC is prepared with a special formulation in which modifiers and stabilizers are added to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) making it rigid and suitable for use as window frames.
PVC forms the major (approx 80 – 85 %) constituent of blend composition. PVC unlike other polymer is heat sensitive and hence needs additives for processing. The property of material is such that it can be made as soft as rubber or can have strength close to any other engineered plastic. This versatility is developed through additives (like light & UV stabilizer, processing aids, impact modifier, lubricants, fillers, pigments, plasticizer etc.) which are added in PVC during the blending process.
Wooden doors have a rich sense of character and beauty all their own. Perhaps this can be attributed to their natural wood grain, their often stained (rather than painted) appearance and the heavy, durable feel they tend to have. What’s more, they can be a stunning way to make a statement at your front entry and also give guests an idea of what awaits in your home’s interior spaces. Here are a few features of wood doors to note before installing one at your home’s front entry.
As we all know that wood grain is one of the most attractive features of a wooden exterior door. As with wood furniture, there are numerous options of wood to choose from when it comes to your door. You can have everything from a modern and sleek bamboo or teak to a traditional oak or mahogany or even a more rustic cedar or knotty pine — along with plenty of selections that fall somewhere in between. Door panels, molding and any special feature you want can be crafted into the wood. You can also customize the finish of your door with stain or paint. Stains are often a popular choice allowing you to show the wood’s natural grain.
Most of these entry doors are also solid wood or feature a solid engineered wood core, meaning you have superior durability and insulation. This may not only help with security concerns and energy savings, but could also reduce the amount of noise you hear from the outdoors.
