Our flood door offers everything that you would expect from a door in terms of security and kerb appeal – with the additional seals that provide protection from flooding. The seals have been tested to ensure that they meet high standards of weathertightness.
The 70mm Flood Defence Composite Door provides a level of protection against flooding that is not provided by a standard front door. The core of the laminated lumber door is filled with polyurethane foam that is protected from water-absorption by a water-resistant polymer sub-frame and rails. The weather seal has been tested for weathertightness by the British Standards Institution. The BSI team bombarded the doors with water and simulated wind and were satisfied that they met BS 6375-1 (the relevant UK standard for doors and windows).
If you have a timber front door, you are more exposed to flood risk and heat loss. The second law of thermodynamics dictates that the transfer of heat is always from the warmer place to the cooler place. This means that the heat from your centrally heated home will leak away through poorly insulated areas of your home. The polyurethane core of our Flood Defence Composite Door keeps warmth in and cold out – cutting emissions and saving you money.
Our doors are secure. They have multi-point locking systems that mean there is no single weak point that a would-be burglar can exploit. The split spindle latch system means that if your door is closed then the latch will stop anyone outside from simply opening the door. This reduces the possibility of daytime chancers wandering in through an unlocked door – multi-point locks still need to be set to prevent a forced entry.
Our Flood Door is 57% thicker than a standard door and has a high-density polyurethane core. In addition to providing superb thermal efficiency, these twin qualities also confer excellent acoustic insulation. Sleep tight at night knowing that impact of outdoor noise inside your home will be significantly reduced.
The woodgrain finish on our Flood Door deliberately mimics that found in oak. If you choose to have a window, there are several different styles and shapes on offer. Each glazing cassette has been colour matched to your door and features the same woodgrain effect as the rest of the door.
Maintaining your door couldn’t be easier. Keep it clean by sponging with warm soapy water. AVOID using abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, bleach and high pressure or steam cleaners – as these could damage the laminate finish of your door.
You can opt for a solid door or choose between a variety of styles of decorative glazing. All of our glass panels are triple-glazed – with an interior pane of laminated glass, decorative glass in the middle and an exterior pane of toughened glass. Various glass patterns are available featuring textured and coloured glass held in place by zinc caming.
Our solid doors are available as a flush door with no panelling or as a traditional six-panelled door. With no glazing, you’ll really admire the beautiful woodgrain finish.
A traditional six-panelled door. Decorative glazing is kept to a minimum in the classical design with just the upper two smallest panels glazed. A good compromise for those who value privacy but don’t want to shut out all the natural light. Also available is the Classical Half-Glazed: in this version, all four panels above the letterbox are glazed.
This door has a semi-circular glazed panel sitting over two upright rectangular glazed panels. The attractive composition of the panels draws the eye. If you like the arch, but don’t want too much light filtering through the door: choose Eclat Arch as this design doesn’t feature the two lower glazed panels.
Understated perfection. Our Elegance doors feature a single large glass window in the upper half of your door. Elegance Arch features an attractive curved arch shape.
Esteem is a four-panelled door. This modern descendant of the traditional Georgian six-panelled door features two short solid panels below the letterbox with two longer glazed panels above.
Each system incorporates an aluminium frame which is fitted to the fabric of your building. These frames can be supplied in a choice of five standard colours, including White, Stone, Terracotta, Mahogany Brown and Black.
