Security Features

Why is this important?

Standard euro cylinder locks are weak around the screw fixing position and offer no resistance against lock snapping. Even locks with only sacrificial sections offer a limited resistance against lock snapping.

Composite Door Direct is different – The Composite Door Direct kitemark 3 star lock has a unique patented method of locking the cam into position to secure your home against intruders.

The lock off point is deep within the cam and the pin isn’t close to the snap off point so cannot be easily manipulated after snapping.

Avantis Lock

The Avantis lock easily passed PAS 24 for security, which requires that the lock can sustain a manual attack for three minutes. In fact after two men had attacked the door for five minutes, they gave up to test the Composite Door Direct hinge, which also comfortably exceeded the required specification. Look at our video to see for yourself just how secure our doors are. Composite Door Direct can boast that not only are their doors some of the most secure in the market, they are also some of the most innovative!

According to an independent testing house it was ‘the strongest composite door yet tested’ thanks to the hardware and the fact that the Composite Door Direct slab is a solid timber core, rather than a foam filled GRP door that other manufacturers use. This new lock provides the largest and strongest hook and bolt system in the door sector.

Excellent Weatherproofing

Water resistant polymer composite rails that protect its core. This means it won’t suffer from water absorption which can lead to skin de-lamination and cause functional problems that lesser products have. Your door will keep the weather at bay and stay looking good for longer.
