COMPOSITE DOORS - THE STYLISH WAY TO PROTECT YOUR HOME AGAINST THE COLD THIS WINTER!

 

 

With summer fading into a distant memory, it’s time to face facts and admit that winter will soon be upon us. And there’s no better time than to take a good look at your doors and make sure they are in good working order to see you through the winter, before the cold weather sets in.

 

Some figures suggest that up to 30% of heat loss is down to draughts so one of the most obvious places to start looking would be your doors.  Choose the right style and design of door and you’ve immediately improved the facade of your home. Pick the right product and you can be safe in the knowledge that your door will also help cut down on some of that unnecessary heat loss.

 

Here at Ilkley Windows, we fit a whole range of doors including PVCu doors, patio doors and our ever popular bi-folding doors. But, for the best protection against the cold, you should take a look at our high security, energy efficient Solidor composite doors.

 

Keeping warm

Solidor composite doors are made from multiple materials. The core, which can contain wood and other insulating materials, is fully protected in a weather resistant outer skin resulting in excellent thermal performance.

  

Staying safe

With a wide range of multi-point locking systems, from the highest standard cylinder to key-free systems, you can rest easy in the knowledge that security is never compromised. In fact, we can fit your door with the industry’s largest dead bolt if you prefer!  

  

Choice of colours

Our doors are available in a range of 17 colours, from the sumptuous Rich Aubergine to a smart and contemporary Irish Oak wood effect. And with different glazing units, frame and door skin options, there are over 10,400 colour combinations available! Once you’ve chosen the colour for you, you’ll be glad to know that each door has a guaranteed UV stable colour fastness which means that’ll never fade in the sun.

 

The little extras

We offer a full range of Prolinea door hardware – all made to the highest standard and of premium quality. From letterboxes, to door handles and knockers, we can help you accessorise your composite door for the perfect finish.

 

Easy to maintain

Thanks to their highly durable plastic skins, you will never have to worry about painting or varnishing your composite door again!

 

 Protecting the environment

 Each door is manufactured using 100% fully recycled door frame reinforcing and they are fully recyclable. Our door skins are lead-free too, for environmental benefit.

  

Peace of mind

Our doors have achieved BSI ISO 9001, are BSI Kitemarked for enhanced security, Pas 23-24 and benefit from Secured by Design accreditation, whilst our glazing is manufactured to BSEN1279. This means that you can be completely confident that your composite door has been manufactured to the highest of standards. What’s more your Solidor from Ilkley Windows will come with a 12 year manufacturing guarantee which covers both the door and whichever locking mechanism you choose.
