When you consider a front door for your brand new home, composite doors are a very popular choice because they are robust and sturdy. People choose them because they offer more protection than the likes of wooden doors and even uPVC doors. They are made from both aluminium and uPVC, along with a layer of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) which bolsters the door even further. These materials are created in very high pressure to ensure that your door is thermally insulated and keeps the heat in. But how secure is your composite door? Read on to find out.
At Select Extensions, we believe that your security is paramount because you and your family should be protected from any intruders. It is very hard to keep completely secure because burglaries are coming up with more methods to target homes. However, a composite door has the tools to stop them in their tracks. That is why the composite doors we offer to provide plenty of security for your home, so you can live comfortably and stress free.
A composite door is very secure because it is weatherproof, so it will stand firm against even the toughest of conditions. The strong material resists warping and doesn’t rust in the long term either, which helps because it can stay durable for much longer. In addition, our doors can have advanced double glazing as well, which resists any hard knocks. Not only can this protect you against strong winds, but it can also prevent any intruders from coming into your home. One key advantage that a composite door has is that it can either come with two options. These include:
Not only that, but these doors also come with advanced multi point locking systems that help bolster your doors’ security. As standard procedure, the doors also come with robust hinges and shootbolts, which will give you and your family a more comfortable home to live in. Burglars will not be able to force the doors open. You can also maximise the protection even more by making it Secured by Design protected, which is an attack resistant crime prevention scheme organised by the police. It ensures that buildings that need it are safe to live in and is an essential way of keeping your property secure.
Another way of keeping your door secure is by using a locking cylinder. A locking cylinder is the bit of the door where you turn the key and the bit that burglars try to get at first when they open the door. However, this cylinder is fixed on the door very tightly, so an intruder will have a hard time trying to break through it. This increases the robustness of your composite door because it ensures that burglars will not be able to enter.
In addition to this, your composite door is also fitted with a powerful glass that holds firm against anyone who tries to smash their way into the home. The glass is made from advanced double glazing, which keeps your home secure. But not only that, it deals with objects that can be used to smash the doors open as well. So, you can rest assured that your door won’t be broken into easily.
You can even install a security chain on your door as well, which only lets you open the door slightly ajar. This is ideal for conversations and to see who is outside; however, the other person won’t break in. But you don’t even need to open the door either, as our composite doors also come with a spy hole which allows you to see who is outside the door as well. This small telescope can help you decide if you want to let someone in or not.
All our composite doors are made with very high quality materials such as foam and wood. So, if you are looking for a door that boasts durability, security, and strength for a range of situations, then a composite door is the right choice for you.
Here at Select Products, we want to make sure that your composite door is as secure as it can be. But if you have any questions, feel free to get in contact with us.
