We have been dealing with Rockdoor for over 10 years which gives us an unprecedented knowledge of their doors. We know Rockdoors inside out and have over 900 of them installed by us across the country. We have extremely low overheads which enables us to charge very competitive Rockdoor prices with a first class service saving our customers hundreds of pounds compared to their local competitors.
We have installed about eight different types of composite doors in 10 years, all from various manufacturers, the one door that has always impressed was the Rockdoor. Below are some small but very important reasons why we chose to supply and fit Rockdoors and why they should be top of your list.
Read our What is a Rockdoor and why choose them guide.
Rockdoor use a 3mm compressed uPVC skin on the internal and external side of the door which is superb and extremely strong and scratch resistant. It is also resistant to discolouring and is able to withstand extreme weather. I must say of all the Rockdoors we have dealt with, I’ve not known of any to be scratched by cats or dogs which is reassuring to those with pets and a great credit to Rockdoor.
The skin is also very resistant to general wear and tear and day to day use of carrying things through the door etc. Should any minor damage or scratches occur, there are touch up pens which have such a good match you wouldn’t even noticed it’s been touched up.
Rockdoor use traditional butt hinges instead of other types of hinges, which can have a tendency to drop and move, especially with a heavy door. The hinges on Rockdoors are substantial and allow for full 3D movement; height, compression and side to side movement. They are an overlooked integral part of a door.
Rockdoor don’t offer too many variations of furniture, but they all just work and are of the highest quality. The standard handle is beautifully finished with some real weight behind it, as soon as you hold it you immediately know it is heavy duty, solid and a premium component.
Rockdoors standard locking mechanism is about as heavy duty you can get without going down the full steel door route. The Winkhaus lock runs the full length of the door slab top to bottom and is not lightweight like most other door manufacturers where you operate them with your little finger. Rockdoors locking mechanism is easy and smooth throughout to operate but there is a slight resistance when you operate it due to how heavy duty it is, but when you operate it, you know it’s not some off the shelf locking mechanism but one that means serious business. It feels secure and you can rest assure no one is getting through it. Rockdoor use 3* cylinders as standard. We have a detailed blog going into more detail about Rockdoors security and locking.
Rockdoors are unique in which they manufacture doors. Most manufacturers use a glazing cassette where the glass is put into the door and sealed with a cassette, leaving air trapped around the glass and in the door but can be changed down the line. Rockdoor have a different approach. The glass on all their doors are built directly into the door. The glass is airtight with high density foam all around it leaving no gaps so you get better thermal efficiency and sound insulation. This is also better for security and aesthetics too.
Rockdoor offer 13 different colours. 9 of them colours can have colour matching frames. You can mix and match any combination of internal and external door colours so you can be sure there will be a specification for you. Rockdoors feature 6 different furniture colours including Black, Gold, Satin Chrome (Graphite), Polished Chrome and Stainless Steel.
From the scratch resistant skin to the robust 3D hinges, all the way down to the handles, furniture and locking mechanisms, the Rockdoor is a complete premium door with no expense spared when being manufactured. Rockdoors are not the cheapest door on the market, but if you want the best of the best, nothing comes close. Nothing. These are some of the reasons we choose to supply and fit Rockdoors, coupled with our long history and expertise, they are an absolutely joy to fit.
