Upgrading your Front Doors with Composite & UPVC
The key features of modern uPVC or Composite Front Doors are their long life span combined with high levels of security which means that homeowners can rely on them to keep the family safe for many years. The fact that they also come in a wide variety of designs, styles, shapes & sizes only adds to their versatility and functionality.
The opening sizes for most UK front doors is quite consistent, being round 6ft 6″ high by 2ft 6″ wide, so for where there are larger entrances side or top panels can be added. The wide range of styles & colours makes them very suitable to use in almost any type of home.

Although both uPVC & Composite doors have common features, such as listed below, in our opinion, it is the Composite door,when finished with a wood grain effect surface, that looks the best.
As an added safety feature, you add triple glazed sections.
Security comes from 5 lever cylinder locks, anti-lifting hinges, reinforced panels, toughened or tempered glass for vulnerable areas. (Building regulations cover safety glass reaching floor level)
Options for Colours & Surface finishes
The advantage of uPVC is that it can be manufactured to be very energy efficient and in a wide range of colours to choose from. Check the BFRC door energy rating for your design carefully before buying replacement front doors.
