Our composite door saves your pocket and preserves the environment
These days, energy efficiency is important to all of us. We all want to be more energy efficient to reduce our fuel bills and protect the future of the planet.
Our composite door is the perfect way to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
Our composite doors are more energy efficient – fact!
We have tested our 44.5mm composite door in comparison with a 48mm solid timber core composite door and a 44mm timber panelled door.
Our composite door was proved to be:
- 19% more thermally efficient than the 48mm solid timber core composite door
- 17% more thermally efficient than the 44mm traditional timber panelled door.
The photos show the thermal efficiency of each of the doors. Dark blues indicate lower heat loss. Reds and greens indicate higher heat loss. The lower the score the more thermally efficient the door is.
Why are our composite doors so thermally efficient?
Our composite doors help you to keep warmth in and cold and noise out because it has a high performance insulating core.
The insulated core is made up of a high density CFC-free PV foam which is environmentally friendly with a Global Warming Potential of less than five and an Ozone Depletion Score of zero. The product installed far exceeds the requirements of Approved Document L of the Building Regulations.
