Distinction Doors is known as the home of the composite door slab and for Drew Wright, the company’s Managing Director, it’s the quality of the door that has been key in the company turning over in excess of £30 million in 2013. “The quality of our door is a huge selling point for our customers,” he says.
The strength of the door is best illustrated in a simple test. A standard PVC-U infill panelled door can be kicked out with a single, well-aimed kick. Try the same test with a Distinction Doors composite door and the same thing cannot be achieved. In fact, even with the aid of a police battering ram, the door cannot be forced within a reasonable timeframe, as viewers of www.youtube.com/distinctiondoorsltd can see. That’s because the door is made of impact-resistant GRP with a rigid polymer sub-frame and a high density polyurethane foam core and is proven to PAS24 UK industry standard. For Drew, this level of security is a key USP. “We know from our customers that when it comes to a front door, while looks and energy efficiency are important, security is crucial for homeowners. The battering ram test provides all the reassurance that homeowners need.”
Of course, as Drew says, looks are vital too and Distinction’s doors more than measure up here. A wide range of styles, colours, decorative glass options and door furniture help homeowners make a statement with their front door.
The door’s GRP skin is bonded to the rigid composite polymer sub-frame, offering total waterproofing, while its 100% CFC free high density polyurethane foam core provides unrivalled energy and sound insulating benefits. There is a wide range of choice in style and colour to suit the personal needs of the discerning house owner and provide individuality. The unique slim secure snap fit glazing cassette features the same traditional timber graining definition as the door and complements the moulds to provide attractive sightlines and balance.
To complete the suite of value added benefits, door sets built using the Distinction door leaf and glazing cassette system exceeds the requirements of UK industry test standards and building regulations. This performance pedigree is underpinned with over 2 million sold since the product’s introduction to the UK in 1998, testimony to its stability, good looks and low maintenance.
