What is a composite door?
Composite doors are fast becoming the preferred entrance door among homeowners in the UK. These exterior doors are made from a combination of materials which can include wood, uPVC, PU foam insulation and a thermoplastic polymer skin which make composite doors one of the best front door designs. They are strong, durable, weather-resistant and thermally insulated to reduce the warmth escaping your home and keep the draughts out.
Unlike other companies, Anglian composite front doors come in two types of composite door material. Decide which is best for your home from our Classic and Elite composite ranges.

Why Choose a Composite Door?
Thermally Efficient Design
Our composite doors are made from a 44m or 48mm thick door panel with insulating materials inside. They keep the heat in and the cold out with a U-Value rating that meets the most up-to-date Building Regulations.
Average Lifespan of 30+ Years
Composite doors are very hard-wearing and durable, providing the look of real wood without the upkeep. They can easily stand up to everyday knocks and bumps, and won’t crack or peel from years of exposure to rain and sun. The average lifespan of a composite door can be more than 30 years if well maintained.
Composite doors are among the easiest front and back door types to look after over time. Simply wipe them down regularly and keep the seals and hinges clear of debris.

With a huge range of exciting front door designs, glazing and colours comes a range of other customisations in the final finish of the door. Here are some of the things to consider when tailoring the appearance of your composite front door for your home.
