Why choose a composite door for your home?

The front door is a key focal point of any home; it’s the first impression to visitors, an insulator and protector. With so many options and designs on the market, here’s a brief rundown on why composite doors are the best choice when it comes to a new front door for your house

Why should I choose a composite door?

Due to advances in technology, composite doors are able to offer additional benefits to homeowners in comparison to solid timber doors and UPVc alternatives.

Security is key

Bowater Doors pride themselves on offering one of the most secure door solutions on the market. The Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin that encases each door is tough and durable. In some instances, pound for pound, GRP can be stronger than steel. In addition to this, Bowater Doors frames and door slabs are reinforced to add additional strength and security. We also offer Secured by Design accredited designs that have been tested to withstand even the most persistent of intruders.

Energy efficiency

Composite doors are compiled of a number of materials including polyurethane foam that offers the highest levels of thermal insulation, it also acts as a soundproofing agent to keep limit the noise from traffic and the street. We regularly test our doors to check how thermally efficient they are, our results show that our doors can achieve U values as low as 0.8 W/m2.K, in comparison to timber doors that average 3.0W/m2.K.

Custom designs

Composite doors allow each and every homeowner to design a new front door as unique as they are. Thanks to our on-site paint facility, we can paint a door to any RAL colour so you can stick to the traditional or really splash out and choose a vivid colour.

Bowater Doors are also able to offer two finishes., Our woodgrain texture mimics the appearance and feel of a traditional timber door. Our smooth skin finish delivers a seamless and contemporary feel that takes on the appearance of steel and aluminium doors, but with the durability and energy efficiency of composite models.

Low maintenance fit and forget systems

Our doors are extremely low maintenance. All they require is a clean with warm soapy water as and when required. Unlike wood, composite doors won’t warp, rot, crack so there will never be a need to strip, sand or paint them. Your new front door will look simply stunning all year round, that’s the Bowater Doors promise.
