Composite or PVCu? Need-to-know guide to choosing entrance doors  

Composite and PVCu entrance doors have many benefits in common, but their design structures can be quite different. Both take the ‘sandwich’ of materials approach which makes the end product extremely robust.

Composite entrance doors are custom-made and are comprised of several different, high-performing materials compressed and glued together in high pressure conditions. Finished with a high quality, multi-point lock and door furniture hardware (letterbox plates/door knockers / handles etc) these include a:

•    outer frame of steel-reinforced PVCu
•    sub-frame of rigid polymer
•    core of high density polyurethane foam
•    ‘skin’ of glass reinforced plastic (GRP)
•    click-fit double/triple glazed unit system (optional)

PVCu entrance doors are comprised of several different, high-performing polymer materials. Finished with a high quality, multi-point lock and door furniture hardware (letterbox plates/door knockers / handles etc) these include a:

•    outer frame of PVCu
•    sub-frame of PVCu
•    core of Styrofoam encased in PVCu
•    double/triple glazed unit system (optional)

Installation FAQs

Why choose Aluminium Bifolding Doors? Quick guide to bifold doors  

Bifolding doors can provide a wide expanse of floor-to-ceiling glazing or ‘glass wall’ which allows light to flood in and can ‘extend’ the room into any other interior room or garden area. They also concertina back fully for an impressive opening, or if part-opened, can achieve access of variable width.

Bifolding doors can be used as external doors, or as in internal glass ‘partition’ and have long been favoured to create a large open plan space from a living room and conservatory. The doors ‘run’ on tracks, with relatively complex mechanisms. There are a range of stacking configurations available which depend on the style and available space within the room.

At Mr Misty, our extensive experience as door repairers has informed our choice - we only install aluminium bifolds and select the best quality aluminium bifolding door systems on the market. We are expert systems fitters who know exactly how to install aluminium bifolding doors properly, to ensure their smooth running and avoid any future issues.

Advances in design and engineering technologies mean that aluminium is highly suited to the construction of robust bifolding door products. The aesthetics of their sleek, slimline frames far outstrip chunkier PVCu bifold doors which will stack much less discreetly. With an impressive range of possible stacking configurations, aluminium doors fold right back into a tidy and compact concertina of panels, maximising space all round.

Aluminium bifold doors benefits

•    Suitable for largescale openings
•    Slimline frames  - sleek, attractive, discreet and more natural light 
•    Impressive thermal properties  - thanks to ‘warm core’ technologies 
•    Hide-away handles (optional) – for that ‘glass wall’ look 
•    Flush-fit styling an option - for smooth sightlines and extra neat stacking 
•    Many panel configurations and stacking options
•    Powder-coated finish in any RAL colour – smart options that make a statement 
•    Suitable for most properties - traditional and contemporary 

Stacking options for aluminium bifold doors 

Doors tuck away discreetly for maximum opening that integrates any two spaces.
•    Inside-stacking – bifold doors stack within the room when open
•    Outside-stacking - bifold doors stack outside the room when open
•    Right or left side stacking - bifold doors stack either inside/outside, but only to one side when open 
•    Split-stacking - bifold doors stack on both sides either inside/outside when open. 

A note about door locks, handles, hinges and hardware

Locks are integral to the security of any door and at Mr Misty installations we’re experts when it comes to locks on UPVC and composite entrance, sliding patio, French and bifolding doors. With years of experience in repairing and replacing locking mechanism emergencies, we ensure that all the doors we install have only the best and most reliable locking mechanisms, which are well-integrated, super secure and easy-to-use. 

There is always a large choice of door handles and hinges, but we concentrate on fitting the right ones for your property – and for you as the end-user. And when it comes to other entrance door hardware such as letterbox plates, knobs, door knockers, spy-holes and numbers, we’ve got that covered too with plenty of options for you to put your personal stamp on your smart new front door.
