Composite Doors from Colins Sash Windows

A composite door speaks volumes about a property. Now you can make even more of a statement with our range of contemporary furniture suites which can transform a front door into a real property feature.

Choose from the Long Bar handle suite, the ultra-modern Square suite, the elegant Bow Handle suite, or the timeless Classic suite, available to order here.

The composite door can be as individual as you like. Three new door colours; Poppy Red, Duck Egg Blue and Black Brown, have added to our existing ten; White, Black, Blue, Red, Green, Oak, Darkwood, Cream, Grey and Chartwell Green.

Choice of Colours for composite doors

We also offer colour all round options, and 9 frame colours – white, mahogany, cherrywood, oak, white grain, brown–black, grey, cream and chartwell green – to compliment your new door colour. All of which can be configured with gold, chrome, black, white and contemporary hardware; it’s easy to see how there are over 900 billion types of Door-Stop door.

Eco Friendly Composite Doors

We’ve always been ahead when it comes to taking responsibility for the planet.

From day one we chose to use a calcium zinc based compound in the extrusion of the door frame (which we make in different lengths to avoid waste) because it’s much kinder to the planet than lead based additives.

The door’s inner rigid foam system is completely, utterly, one hundred percent CFC-free.

Energy Saving Certificates

All composite doors are rated by The British Fenestration Rating Council, which introduced the DER scheme in September 2011. Door-Stop supplied the first ever energy rated door and the first ‘A’ energy rated door.

New energy regulations for composite doors mean all door manufacturers and resellers will have to prove compliance. A generic certificate for certain door ‘types’ is unlikely to suffice. Using a calculation method verified by the Building Research Establishment and BFRC each and every Door-Stop composite door comes with a unique energy rating certificate, delivered immediately at the point of order.

This is not a type test or a dubious assurance that gives all composite doors the same U-value. It is tailored for each particular door configuration.

Maintaining your composite doors

Composite Door-Stop doors are low maintenance – you’ll find a little care every six months goes a very long way.

Part of the door Recommended Maintenance Notes
Hindges Keep them at their best by lubricating with a little light engineering oil, e.g. 3 in 1
Cylinder Locks Need lubricating with Teflon based lubricant. They're sensitive so don't use oil or graphite powder
Hardware (handles and knockers) Just add a touch of light engineering oil on all moving parts. Especially important if you live near the coaster or by a building or industrial site.

Cleaning your composite doors

Your composite door will stay in top condition with just one clean a month.

Here’s how to care for each part of your door.

Path of the Door Cleaning Finishing
Door Leaf Keep the grime and grit away with warm soapy water (not washing up liquid) and wipe with a soft cloth.
Door Frame Wash with warm soapy water. Stubborn stains demand a specialised PVC-U cleaner. Read the cleaner's guidelines carefully.
External Glass Wash with warm soapy water with soft cloth. Finish with a proprietary glass cleaner.
Leaded Glass Wash with warm soapy water. Finish with a proprietary glass cleaner. (Oxidisation will naturally occur over time.)
Hardware (handlers, knockers) Take a clean cloth and warm water with a mild detergent, then simply wipe clean to a shine.
