Why Installing A Composite Door Will Make For A Safer Home



Just the thought of coming home to find that someone has broken into your property is enough to make you feel sick, but it is unfortunately a growing occurrence both locally and nationally. Figures released by the Metropolitan Police in January 2018 back this up as they show a 21% rise in UK burglaries year on year.

A significant number of these break-ins take place because of the failure of UPVC panel doors to resist the efforts of thieves who use every method they can to gain access. Many UPVC doors are too hollow and lack the unrivalled sturdiness offered by composite doors.

Make the switch from UPVC to composite

Upgrading your existing front door to a composite door will vastly reduce the chances of someone unlawfully forcing their way into your private living quarters and stop you fretting so much about home security.

The best place to buy a secure composite door from for anyone residing in Essex, Hornchurch, Woodford, Loughton, Brentwood, Colchester and their surrounding areas? The Essex Composite Door Shop of course!

We say that as our full suite of traditional and modern composite doors are designed and crafted with security in mind.

Lasting security

They contain a glass reinforced plastic skin (the same material used to make the hulls of boats), have been fully security tested by the BSI and comply with PAS 24 after satisfying the enhanced security performance requirements of external door sets.

As far as the locking system is concerned, we utilise the Ultion, a 3 star cylinder that has achieved the coveted Sold Secure Diamond standard from the Master Locksmiths Association (MLA).

Such is the confidence we have in our composite doors that in the unlikely event they’re broken by a burglar we promise to replace the door for FREE, hand you £500 and guarantee the replacement door for 10 years.

For year upon year of impenetrable home protection in your entranceway, you can count on a composite door to safeguard your most treasured possessions.
