There are three aspects that come into play in door security. These are the strength of the door, the double glazing installation, and the security systems installed in the door.

The strength of the door plays a huge role in the security of your home. The more resilient the door, the more difficult it is to damage or break down.

For this reason, uPVC and composite doors are highly recommended for enhanced door security. Both of these door types are known to be highly secure because of their innate strength.


How Strong are Composite Doors?

Composite doors are made up of an amalgamation of materials to give you the best of each. They normally have a timber core that lays the foundation of the structure. This is what gives them their robustness.

This layer is reinforced with a layer of foam for insulation, and a Glass Reinforced Plastic layer for superficial protection. The GRP layer protects the door from scratches and the ravages of adverse weather conditions.

It gives these doors a longer life, and makes them extremely difficult to tamper with.
