Solidor vs Rockdoor. These are the two biggest names in the composite door industry. Many people compare Rockdoor and Solidor, ask which one is best, or ask which one do you recommend.
I recommend both Solidor and Rockdoor. They are both superb composite doors whilst being completely different.
The inner core of a Rockdoor is completely different to Solidor doors, both have their advantages and disadvantages. A Solidor is made from wood with a uPVC skin either side, a Rockdoor is made from a very high density foam with a uPVC skin either side with a 10mm aluminium box section along the perimeter of the door slab. The foam is very dense so even over a small area it still has incredible strength and combined with the very strong uPVC skin makes it very secure.
The Solidor doors uses a wood core which has it’s advantages too, such as being more resistant to being cut open, but in the real world this is never a likely scenario. Rockdoors advantages over Solidors are slightly better energy rating but negligible in the real world, and they have the highest security rating possible of any composite door.
Solidor advantages over Rockdoor is mainly that a Solidor uses a solid timber core, Solidor have a lot more accessories and furniture options including heritage and architectural types along with more door designs and glass designs than Rockdoor, however Solidor are not as secure depending on lock specifications chosen.
