COMPOSITE DOOR GUIDE
THE SCIENCE BIT
The primary component that defines a Composite Door is the material it is made from. Our MAGNUM composite doors begin with an energy efficient fibreglass composite that provides excellent thermal and sound insulation. Its strength comes from the construction of its sub-frame in solid, water-resistant polymer material, which is then reinforced with Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). The depression moulded GRP skins provide a truly realistic timber look to the composite door and is bonded to the subframe and its core filled with high density, 100% CFC-free polyurethane foam. The fully reinforced, triple sealed outer frame, the multipoint security locking system and the unique adjustable hinges make MAGNUM composite doors a truly high level performer that retains an amazingly light, yet positive easy feel.
Unlike traditional timber constructed doors, MAGNUM composite doors will not warp, bow, rot, twist, flake, crack or discolour, making for an almost entirely maintenance free door. All that is ever required is an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth and your MAGNUM composite door will continue to look as fresh as the day it was installed.
