Spotlight on: Composite Doors


What front door you choose for your project plays a big part in the property’s kerb appeal but also its security and thermal efficiency.  Composite front doors are created by pressing and bonding several materials together at a high pressure. This results in a great looking, strong, weather resistant and secure door, ideal for new homes as well as renovation projects.

At Tradeglaze we supply the Xtreme Composite Door range by the leading UK manufacturer Vista Ltd. We offer a wide variety of colours, textured glass and furniture finishes and standard and optional security features to help you create the perfect door for your project. Our doors are secure, durable and weatherproof, and come with a 10-year guarantee allowing to provide homeowners with a complete peace of mind.

Why choose a composite door?

Composite doors offer the look and feel of a timber door without any of the inherent problems, such as cracking, bowing or twisting. They have a high-density foam core which offers excellent strength and thermal performance, and a durable Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) skin to protect from the elements. GRP is the same materials that is used to make the hull of lifeboats – demonstrating just how tough it really is! And unlike timber, composite doors are incredibly low maintenance – an occasional wipe over with a damp cloth will restore it to it’s original finish.

They can be customised to suit any taste, enabling you to maximise the opportunities presented by this market.

1. Exceptional security

Our composite doors have a rigid polymer subframe, a high density CFC-free polyurethane foam core, impact-resistant GRP skin, a five point locking system and an anti-snap, bump, pick and drill cylinder fitted with a guard for ultimate security. You can be assured that you are offering high levels of security to your customers with your door choice. All our doors can achieve PAS 24 2016 Enhanced Security and Secured by Design accreditation.

2. Limitless color and style choices

Our composite door range is available in virtually any colour. This includes our standard range of White, Red, Green, Blue, Black, Light Oak and Rosewood, to bespoke laminated foils and a premium range in any RAL CLASSIC colour – both frame and door. Our doors are supplied with white internal colour as standard, however coloured both sides is available on request.

Vista is also leading the market in style choices and has just added five new door styles to its range. Whether it’s a bold and contemporary design, a modern look, or a classic cottage style that you are after for your next project, we can supply the perfect composite door for you.

3. Outstanding thermal performance

The warm foam core allows our composite doors to have a significantly better U-Value than traditional timber doors. The 100% CFC free polyurethane insulating core provides superior thermal performance as well as enhancing sound proofing. In fact, selected styles offer U-Value as low as 0.8W/m2K! In addition to that, we offer upgrades to glass options which increase the thermal performance of the door.

4. Exceptional weather resistance

Come rain or shine, our doors are built to resist the elements. Extremes of temperatures can play havoc on some doors, exposing them to problems like warping and cracking, but not with our composite doors. Thanks to the water proof skin and triple sealed uPVC outer frame our composite doors will never swell or stick as no moisture is able to get into it.

Our composite doors skins are made from GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) and won’t fade, crack or warp, so your door will carry on functioning perfectly whatever the weather.
