What is a composite door? Put simply, composite doors are doors which are made out of a variety of materials, which has a timber effect. The difference between a composite and a PVC door? It is all about the materials and the finish. Composite doors have the style and look of a timber door, without any of the maintenance problems which come with a timber door. There are many differences between composite doors and uPVC – composite doors have a grain effect, and there is a far wider range of colours. In fact, we can paint our composite doors literally any RAL colour possible.

From Orchid Pink to Steel Blue, and Mandarin Orange to Chartwell Green, with our composite doors you can really make a statement. There is also a far wider range of handles available with a composite door: you can have modern and contemporary handles including bow and bar handles, and you can also have the specialised AV2 lock for the door, or the Yale keyless lock. You have the choice of our Apeer Diamond, Apeer 70 and Apeer 44 doors, as well as our luxurious Modo and Solidor ranges.
