What’s the Difference between Composite Doors and UPVC Doors?

A Composite Door is manufactured using a composition of different materials (UPVC, Fibreglass, Timber, etc.), The Door itself has a fiberglass foiled skin which gives the door a very similar look to a timber door, This fibreglass skin gives the Composite Doors the ability to be manufactured in a variety of different Styles and Colours which make the doors highly customizable and the perfect option for a Front door.

The UPVC Doors on the other hand are manufactured using only UPVC, The colour of UPVC doors can be customised, however, the door design is much more restrictive, with fully glazed or half glazed designs being the only options, UPVC doors have a more plain and simple look so are often used as back doors or utility doors.

Is there a difference in Security?

Composite Doors and UPVC Doors will have Toughened Glass, High Security Lock Mechanisms and High security Cylinders, so the security of both the doors should be the same.
