A new breed of door

Virtu-AL, an aluminium textured, smooth non-woodgrain finish composite door – has been launched by Virtuoso to “help installers make the most of the surging popularity of contemporary aluminium products”.

Tony Craggs, managing director of Virtuoso (previously WB Group), said: “The Virtu-AL door is like nothing else out there and it’s certain to open up some fantastic new opportunities for installers who want to broaden their scope beyond standard composite doors and take advantage of the growing consumer appetite for modern, aluminium style products.

“Our high performance Virtu-AL door looks and feels just like a premium aluminium door and it has all the thermal and performance characteristics of a composite door. So now, if a homeowner wants to achieve the high-end contemporary look of an aluminium door but without the price tag of aluminium, they can with this aluminium alternative door.”

The Virtu-AL door consists of a 4mm GRP skin on a 44mm composite slab. It is available in a number of standard colours and it can also be sprayed to match any RAL colour in Virtuoso’s in-house spray booth. And, just like a composite door, it will not warp, twist or flake. The door is PAS 24 and Document Q compliant, and comes with a guarantee to cover its structure and finish.
