Open a Bowater Composite Door and you’re looking at the future of all doors. After all, why would anyone choose anything but this high-tech, high performance, highly attractive product above anything else?
Sure, a timber front door looks the business when it’s brand new, but give it a year or so of the good old British weather and it will need sanding, undercoating and painting or varnishing again. And, apart from that regular, joyous, chore, it’s also very likely to crack or warp, letting in drafts, water and even insects or rodents looking for shelter. What’s more, timber doors tend to have simple, old-fashioned locking mechanisms that offer little resistance to even the most haphazard burglars.
Or how about good old PVC with all its low maintenance properties? Well, the problem with PVC doors is that, well they look like what they are and, frankly, they’re a bit bland and soulless for many people’s tastes. Also, many discolour or yellow with age, so end up looking tired and dated.
So, If you like the look of natural or painted timber, you’ll be pleased to hear that Bowater now offers Composite Doors that look the part but have all the energy efficiency, weather resistance and durability of the most modern, high-tech materials.
The part you see is a robust, Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) skin. Which is a highly durable material that is significantly more hardwearing than a traditional painted timber door. But, below the surface, this hardwearing, high performing outer skin is mounted onto a composite material sub-frame supported by laminated timber stiffeners and pressure filled with an energy-efficient foam.
The frame can also be supplied with a low-profile aluminium or carbon fibre threshold to improve accessibility in accordance with Building Regulations Part M. Which all adds up not just to the future of doors, but a future proof door, too.
