Traditionally composite doors are made up of solid timber core, an external frame reinforced with steel and subframe featuring uPVC. The end result is a door with robust intrinsic qualities and an outer finish which is modern and highly durable, boasting the pleasing aesthetics of wood, with all the advantages of the latest technically advanced modern materials.
