Are composite doors secure?

Contemporary Composite Doors

It’s that time of year again; the leaves are falling, there’s a chill in the air and many of us are counting down the days until the Christmas holidays begin! With Halloween just around the corner, October also celebrates National Home Security Month. Raising awareness around the importance of home security, did you know…

  • Burglaries spike by more than a third when the clocks go back
  • 28% of UK adults take no safety precautions at home
  • Thefts from UK gardens have increased by 23% since 2017
  • Overall, theft has increased by 13% between March 2017 and March 2019
  • 5% of burglaries take place due to an unlocked door

So, if you have a uPVC front door it’s the ideal time of year to review your home security and protect your family with the help of a high-performance composite door from DW Windows.

What is a composite door?

Composite doors are one of the strongest door systems around, thanks to their unique fusion of durable materials. At DW Windows we offer 3 high-quality composite door collections that boast the following security benefits:

Apeer composite doors

Apeer 70: 70mm high-density polyurethane foam, extra insulating double rebate, GRP inner frame, anti-tamper triple glazed units, double steel hinge bolts, multi-point locking, anti-pick, anti-snap cylinders, Secured by Design and PAS 24 certification.

Apeer 44: 44mm high-density polyurethane foam, double glazed Q Seal warm edge Super Spacer system, multi-point locking, anti-pick, anti-snap cylinders and Secured By Design and PAS 24 certification.

The Dales Collection

GRP outer skin, rigid foam infill panel, uPVC inserts and edge banding, the latest five-point anti-bump cylinder locking system, three-way adjustable hinges, stainless steel hardware with a 25-year guarantee, £1,000 money-back security guarantee and Secured By Design and BM Trada Q-Mark available.


Rock Door Composite Stable Door

Reinforced inner and outer frame, steel hooks and keeps, S-Glazing (provides greater resistance to glass removal), 3-star diamond cylinders, deadbolts, steel security mesh, three-way adjustable hinges, a tough 3mm uPVC door skin that resists cutting and impacts and Secured By Design and PAS 24 certification.

What is GRP?

GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Plastic, which is also known as fibreglass. Offering more strength than steel, this lightweight construction material actively resists corrosion and warping or bowing; an issue that can arise with old or inferior uPVC doors. Used to construct boats, cars, pipes ad roofing, it’s not difficult to understand why it makes such a great door material.

What is steel security mesh?

The Rockdoor composite door is slightly different from the others, as it utilises steel security mesh and uPVC. Made from a galvanised steel sheet, the inclusion of steel security mesh makes the robust door sash 4 times stronger.
