What are composite doors?
Composite doors are constructed from multiple different types of material in order to provide a door which is highly secure and weather resistant. The aluminium composite doors provided by Spitfire feature aluminium walls filled with insulating material. The aluminium layers make the door strong, weather-resistant and secure, while the insulating layer acts as a thermal break, which reduces heat conductivity of the door and prevents warm indoor air from escaping. The doors are therefore very energy efficient and provide superior thermal efficiency over UPVC.
When comparing the security of high-quality composite doors and UPVC doors, composite doors are significantly thicker and stronger. This means they hold up far better to attempted break ins. Spitfire Aluminium composite doors also feature high security multipoint locks, which makes them even more resistant to attempted burglary. They are secured by design, which is the police-preferred method of home security.
Products available from composite door supplier Spitfire
Spitfire are expert composite door manufacturers and offer two key variations of composite external doors – S-200 and S-500. Both models are suitable for front and back door installation.

They feature Winkhaus German engineered precision locking systems for maximum security, and discreet mechanical fixings to prevent distortion in very hot or cold temperatures. The doors are 75mm thick and the glazed panels have three layers of security glass. With U-values as low as 1.4 W/m2K, they provide excellent levels of insulation.
There are a variety of composite door styles in the S-200 range, including traditional and contemporary looks. Plus, you can choose from a variety of handle options, glass designs and hundreds of RAL colours, as well as woodgrain effect finishes.
