UPVC Front Doors
Your front door, being the main entrance to your home, is the first thing people see when visiting. It is also one of the prime points of protection for your home and valuables and is also open to the elements. This is why the choice of which UPVC Double Glazed Door to install is an important one. Quality, Design, Security and Energy Efficiency all come into play.
UPVC Replacement External Doors – Quality
When choosing a UPVC front door it is advisable to go for a high quality door and not be tempted by cheaper but less reliable versions. If a door seems too inexpensive to be true, it usually is. Buying an inferior door which may be less substantial and need to be replaced sooner could work out to be a more expensive option. Or worse it may not be as secure as it should be, leaving your home and possessions vulnerable to break ins.

UPVC Replacement Door Security
The main function of a front door is to allow entry to some while keeping others out, which is why the ability to withstand unwanted entry either by force or by tampering with the lock is critical. Many self professed reputable companies provide UPVC doors which do not have state of the art, dependable security features.
Our associate company, UPVC Door Store, supply and fit replacement doors which are resistant to most forms of assault. Using a combination of toughened safety glass, a 3mm thick outer wall and a galvanised steel reinforced core these doors are built to ensure peace of mind.
UPVC Door Security – Locks
The presence in itself of a UPVC replacement back door or front door acts as a strong deterrent to burglars, who know how difficult they are to break into. Further security measures are also a wise step to take and it is therefore a good idea to have a sophisticated and proven door lock system such as a Safeware 8. This locking system fitted to doors supplied by both Essex Trade Windows and UPVC Door Store is an example of technical excellence at its best with several aspects combining to guard against every forced entry threat.
Energy Efficient UPVC Front Doors
UPVC doors are more energy efficient than traditional wooden doors on several counts. Heat escape is reduced by weather strips which are supported by the rigidity of the doors. UPVC as a construction material is a better heat insulator than wood and UPVC doors are designed to utilise a series of chambers, acting as a void between outside and inside preventing, heat or cold transference.
As a result of the insulating effect of well fitting double glazed UPVC doors and windows, noise is also minimised, so more privacy and peace ensues.
