Our com­pos­ite front and back doors are pop­u­lar not just at the front of the home, but for use as a back or side door too. Ful­ly cus­tomis­able and resilient to envi­ron­men­tal stress­es, they can enhance the look of your home whilst still pro­vid­ing you with a high lev­el of security.

What is a Com­pos­ite Door?

Com­pos­ite doors are named because they’re made from more than one mate­r­i­al. Rather than being con­struct­ed from sol­id tim­ber or uPVC, com­pos­ite doors are made from GRP. This stands for Glass Rein­forced Plas­tic. You may know this mate­r­i­al by its oth­er name – fibre­glass. This is a ver­sa­tile and resilient mate­r­i­al that is used for many dif­fer­ent things through­out the world, from boats to under­ground piping.

Our com­pos­ite doors are made with a foam-filled core to ensure excel­lent ther­mal effi­cien­cy. This also keeps your door light and strong. In fact, a com­pos­ite front door from Evan­der is one of the most robust and long-last­ing doors you can buy.
