Composite Rockdoors are regarded in the industry as the best composite on the market for the home in terms of quality, security and thermal efficiency. The Ultimate Rockdoors are so secure that even the police can’t get through them and the fireman need special training to gain entry.
We have 900 different designs and combinations of composite Rockdoors on our website to choose from and some of the lowest fitted prices in the UK. If you need a very secure, top quality front or back door and security is very important to you then a Rockdoor should be top of your list.
All our composite door prices include installation, VAT, 10 year guarantee and a building certificate as standard. You will also get an Insurance Backed Guarantee for each Rockdoor fitted.
Having fit about eight different types of composite doors over the last five years from various manufacturers, the one door that always impressed was the Rockdoor. Every Rockdoor we receive is packaged properly so there is little chance of it being received damaged which is very important.
More importantly though is the quality of the Rockdoor itself. All the components that go into making one are of the best quality available and the finish for handles and letterboxes look like they belong in a jewellers glass case rather than on a Rockdoor. The finish of the Rockdoor face is superb. It is a very hard wearing compressed uPVC finish that is very resistant to scratches meaning that your new Rockdoor will look good for the years to come.
When choosing Rockdoors over other door suppliers I went back to the ones we had installed and was pleasantly surprised at just how well they looked having been fitted up to 4 years previous. To be honest they looked just as good as they did the day they were installed and having spoke to various customers it was evident that they were still highly delighted with their rockdoor years later. As an installer, once you have fitted a Rockdoor for someone you seldom see that person again unless you are called to either adjust a door or do extra work. The last thing you want as an installer or a customer is a product that creates problems down the line.
All the security features ever needed for a Rockdoor are available to choose from but it’s the inner strength that set it apart from the rest. Many door makers buy standard sized door slabs and reduce the door height and width to get the desired size. This reduction of width and height means that the door is not as strong as it should be. A Rockdoor is made from scratch meaning that every rockdoor has the same sized internal frame as every other Rockdoor meaning that the strength of the inner frame is never compromised or reduced in any way. The new Ultimate range is so advanced that it has state of the art carbon fibre built into the framework of the door making it the strongest composite on the market of it’s kind.
Many composite doors are light weight in construction. Having had the door slab reduced to get the height and width required the majority of the door is then just condensed foam with a door skin either side. Compared like for like (solid door with no glass in) I would estimate that a Rockdoor is at least 30% heavier than other composite doors I have handled. As a customer you wouldn’t be aware of the weight as the rockdoor is usually on hinges and fitted before you get a feel of the door so you never get to feel the full weight of the door. Talking of hinges, they use the traditional butt hinge with 3D adjustment. Hinges are crucial to the door and you need a hinge that can not only take the weight of a door but also stay in adjustment.
One other thing worth mentioning is the way glass is installed in a standard composite door. Nearly all manufacturers use a system called a glazing cassette. I personally think they are a liability as they reduce thermal and noise insulation. I remember fitting a door for a company where the customer complained that the door was noisy around the glass and asked if anything could anything be done to improve the situation. I was sent back to take out the glazing cassette and apply a sound deadening material around the glass and was shocked not only to see just how easily a glazing cassette could be removed but the gap around the glass itself which basically lets cold air from the outside through to the inner face of the door. That puts me off 90% of composite doors for that reason alone. The only door not to use this system that I know of was the Rockdoor because the glass is built into the door itself.
Reading the above makes it seem like the Rockdoor is the only door you that should have fitted to your home. It isn’t. The above description is about why I chose Rockdoor. There are numerous suppliers offering composite doors that I could have gone with that are cheaper than a Rockdoor but at the end of the day I have gone for quality over quantity so if your budget does allow, then a Rockdoor should be top of your list and because we have very low overheads we don't need to charge inflated prices.
Thanks for looking.
