Painted hinge end

Entrance Composite Door Solutions now offers a painted hinge edge as standard for its range of prepped GRP composite door slabs, which now match the finish to the external door face.

Most prepped slabs are supplied in a raw finish to the hinge edge, and even other timber composite doors have just a few edgebanding colour options, the company said.

“For consumers, with composite door ticket prices from £1,200 to nearly £3,000, the white, caramel or dark edgebanding is now starting to look a little budget,” Entrance said.

“Each customer benefits from a bespoke manufacturing package of prepped slabs, glazing, cassettes, hardware, along with a marketing support package that’s been bolstered by a new 72-page brochure.”

Greg Kelly, managing director of Entrance, said: “Our customers sell on the merits of the care and attention we have to them and in the production of prepped slabs and our package as a whole. With the hardware and cassettes, we’re the ultimate one-stop shop for composite door manufacturing and can actively help customers entering the market.”
