The Hurst insulated composite door is strong, durable and secure. Manufactured to an exacting and high quality specification, its strength comes from the construction of the subframe in a solid, water-resistant polymer material, reinforced behind with Laminated Veneered Lumber (LVL) The thermoset GRP skins are then bonded to the subframe, and the core filled with high density 100% CFC-free polyurethane foam. The thermoset GRP skins are depression moulded featuring a lifelike woodgrain effect and high definition panels provide an authentic timber like door with all the advantages but limited maintenance.
Thermoset GRP cannot expand or contract laterally so the door cannot increase or decrease in size, an advantage over many other commonly used materials.
Our composite door collection is a breakthrough in door technology, combining proven levels of high security with incredible good looks.
In addition to our seven standard woodgrain colours we have our premium colours which include more contemporary shades. Our premium sprayed colour service gives you an almost unlimited amount of colour options; choose from the extensive RAL range of colours and make your door truly unique.
For truly stunning glazing options, the Platinum Clarity, Flores, Kara and Simplicity triple glazed designs are constructed using hand-cut bevels and beautifully textured glass pieces. These
are then assembled using traditional stained glass methods into zinc or brass cames. The decorative glass is then encapsulated between two pieces of clear tempered safety glass to give excellent thermal and sound insulation with the added benefit of an easy to clean, smooth surface.
Hand-made to create the look of traditional stained glass windows, the Heritage Dorchester range is made from individual pieces of coloured and clear obscure glass cemented into lead grooves and protected between two sheets of clear toughened glass.
Whilst standard uPVC residential doors were the more usual choice for back doors and kitchen doors, there is no reason why you can't chose a composite door. A uPVC residential door will be the more cost effective option, but a composite door will provide a more elegant solution, offering additional good looks with security. Classic styles such as our composite half or composite four make ideal front or back doors and you can choose a plain glass option to keep it simple
An alternative solution for a kitchen back door is the composite stable door. This has become very popular with our customers lately, combining both style and practicality. As well as the true aesthetics of a wooden door, the design allows for the opening of the upper leaf. This provides light and ventilation whilst keeping the lower leaf closed to prevent children or pets from leaving the home. Each leaf is completely surrounded by a rigid subframe providing both security and stability, as well as weather protection.
Choose from a range of colours in a tongue and groove wood effect and glass options, from the simple rustic to bevelled elegance.
