The door industry on a whole has continued to evolve rapidly in recent times and Truedor have been at the forefront of this. This has culminated in the development of the composite door, which is now the key innovation when it comes to doors.
So what is a composite door?
Composite doors are made using the selection of materials such as a solid timber core, glass reinforced plastic and PVC to name just a few. These have each been chosen due to their specific qualities, in order to create the strongest door on the market. This is in comparison to previous doors such as a uPVC door, which is made just of plastic. Composite doors are made with the materials fused together under high pressure conditions, which results in this ultra-durable and reliable product.
The composite door was created in order to tackle each of the problems of previous doors of the past and this is why they have been such a great success and innovative product. They have enhanced weatherproofing, which also means they are very low maintenance.
Security of a composite door?
One of the key reasons behind a door is simply security and these products promise to add extra security to your home or business. They can also be tailored to fit into any home such as a Victorian terrace or a modern development.
Truedor composite doors are fitted with high security multi-point locking systems as standard. These locks meet the requirements of PAS 23/24 and are tested in accordance with BS EN ISO 1303 Building Hardware, Cylinders and locks. The security of these doors are further added as they are fitted with a specially designed dog bolt system as standard. This involves two sets of triple hinge bolts that help to secure the frame. This means it makes it extremely hard for intruders and gives you peace of mind in the protection of your home or business.
Further security can also be added to these through the supply of a ‘split spindle’ option. These work by locking onto the latch as soon as the door is closed and can only be unlocked from the inside.
The cylinder is approved by UAP Kinetica Kitemarked and has been tested in order to ensure that the composite door is secure and safe at all times. This means that it can still be opened from the inside even if it is being attacked from the outside.
