To start with, we only use the highest quality stainless steel multi point locking systems. Have total pace of mind that the locks fitted to your composite door are manufactured with the latest anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-snap technology.

We have designed your composite door to be as security conscience as possible. By this we mean, all of our locks and hinges are built into the frame. Our logic is, out of sight out of mind. If potential burglars cannot see the locks and hinges, how would they know which part to target?

All of our composite doors are Secured By Design accredited.

Secured By Design

Secured By Design was established in 1989. Secured By Design is the title given to police projects focusing on design and security for new and refurbished homes. The objective of SBD is to design crime out homes throughout Essex and the remainder of the UK. This is done by making sure that the design is physically strong enough to withstand a reasonable to substantial effort to gain forced entry.

Our entire range of composite doors all carry the police approved Secured By Design stature.

Composite Doors Maintenance

Unlike traditional wooden doors, our composite doors require little to no maintenance to retain their unbeatable energy efficiency and security. Oakland recommend an occasional wash once in a while, just to help your door keep its effortless functionality by removing any grit and dust which has inevitably built up in throughout weather conditions.

Composite doors are built and designed to replicate the appearance of wooden doors. The main difference being that composite doors will not need anywhere near the amount of work that wooden ones will.

For example, if you choose a wooden door you’ll have to go through the hardship of reserving an entire weekend to twinge your back out whilst removing the heavy door from its frame. Then there’s the joy of treating the wood after a harsh winter, sanding it down and refitting it to the frame – most likely hurting your back again.

Composite doors are amongst most energy efficient products on the current home improvements. Why? They are triple sealed to minimise the effects of damaging weather conditions like rain, sleet and ice. The doors themselves are exceptionally thick, durable and dense. Furthermore, all of our composite door frames are fitted with a high quality sealant around the perimeter of the door, minimising the amount of heat escaping from your Essex home.
