Security and efficiency
Security and thermal efficiency are always at the forefront of a homeowner’s mind when they are looking to bring something new to their property, according to Endurance.
Endurance composite doors feature a solid timber core, which offers internal strength and resilience to attack. It is made up of 17 cross-bonded veneered laminates that result in an overall core thickness of 48mm (nearly 10% thicker than most other composite doors).
This core is BBA accredited, as well as CE marked and certified by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. It has also been tested and certified to Secured by Design standards, including a manual attack on the locking hardware, unlimited three-minute attacks on the door cylinder, and a hard body impact test that applies force to the hinge and locking points with a 50kg steel impactor.
The Endurance range also achieves a U-value of 1.8W/m2K, and is fitted with the Moisture Barrier System (MBS) that has become a signature of the Endurance design. This bonded cellular PVC is designed to stop moisture ingress and therefore prevent the expansion of the door that can warp it out of shape.
