esearch shows that around 30 million UK proerties have an entrance door that is over 10 years old – yet, in that time, the style and security of front doors has changed vastly. The demand for unique, stylish and secure entrances that make a statement about both the home and its owner means that door manufacturers are offering a greater range of products than ever before and one, in particular, is taking over the market. Composite doors are now the number 1 choice for homeowners in the UK, with around half a million being installed here each year. So why are they proving to be so popular?
David O’Mara is the UK Marketing Manager at Europe’s leading door manufacturer, Hörmann: “A front door speaks volumes about your property and home owners are now using this as an opportunity to express themselves creatively. Hörmann’s composite doors offer a wide variety of design options, which means that, as well as being able to choose from an assortment of finishes, accessories and glazing, doors can also be tailored to meet different budgets.” To meet popular demand, Hörmann added a brand new composite door to its range at the start of 2016. The ThermoComp comes in a wide variety of
styles to suit a range of properties – be it a Victorian terrace, farmhouse or a modern development. The ThermoComp is available in five standard colours and two woodstain finishes, however, Hörmann also offers specialist colours and a colour matching service to blend in with windows, garage doors and any other exterior features. Security remains a top priority and each ThermoComp door comes equipped with a multi-point locking as standard. The hinge side is secured with three security bolts to boost anti-leverage and the 8mm-thick laminated safety glass also helps to prevent break-ins. For homeowners who are looking for added insulation, the Hörmann entrance door collection also features the ThermoPro and ThermoPlus doors, made from top quality steel to protect against the extremes of British weather. These doors allow home owners to save energy in the long term and protect the environment. So whether homeowners are looking for a bold or understated look, the ThermoComp, ThermoPro and ThermoPlus doors create a secure, elegant entrance that can be tailored to suit any property.
