With var­i­ous dif­fer­ent colour options and glaz­ing designs to choose from, it’s easy to cre­ate the ide­al door for your home from our range. Secure and ther­mal­ly effi­cient, your doors will keep you safe and draught-free.

What is a uPVC Door?

uPVC stands for unplas­ti­cised polyvinyl chlo­ride, which means it’s a hard mate­r­i­al that does not flex eas­i­ly. Although its prop­er name sounds like a chem­i­cal, uPVC is actu­al­ly a very benign sub­stance which is also used to make mouth guards and ortho­don­tic retain­ers, so you can be sure that it is a safe mate­r­i­al for use around your home. Water and fire-resis­tant, uPVC cre­ates strong, main­te­nance-free prod­ucts – and our doors are no exception.

With a dense core sur­round­ed by high-qual­i­ty uPVC, our doors are resilient and will ensure your entrance way is not draughty or inef­fi­cient at retain­ing heat. This also ensures that our doors are light yet strong – a must for ease of use and prop­er­ty secu­ri­ty. Colour is applied through­out the mate­r­i­al, so our uPVC doors won’t fade or peel over time.
