A composite is something made up from several elements and this is also true of a Composite Door - it is made up of a timber sub-frame which is filled with high density foam. The surface of the door is coated with Glass Reinforced Polymer for a durable yet beautiful appearance and features a grained effect.
Composite Doors offer all the aesthetic benefits of painted or varnished timber, combined with the security, performance, low maintenance and long life expectancy of modern materials.
