See how much thought, work and technology goes into something we all take for granted every day of the week in creating the UK's strongest composite door.Each step in the manufacturing process makes every Rockdoor have the style, security and strength we demand.
For over 20 years we've known that our doors need to be strong, secure, well-crafted and fitting to the environment it is to be used in.
Our locks and reinforcement are the best available on the market today helping us protect thousands of homeowners and families from burglary.
Every Rockdoor is strong and stylish. After all what good is pretty, if the result is not practical?
Whether it’s a front door or back door, a Rockdoor creates the perfect look for your home.
You can design your door online choosing the door colour, glass design and door furniture that actually suits the look and feel of your property.
A Rockdoor is never ever ‘off the shelf’ with each door being made to the exact specification of your door requirements, every time.
Guaranteed. No exceptions.
Opening, closing and slamming! A Rockdoor will contend with years of use and abuse. Being virtually maintenance free a Rockdoor lasts well over thirty years.
That’s long enough to have started a family, gone through teething, been proud at their first sports day, squabbled, helped them grow and then see them fly the nest.
Not many other products or composite doors can survive that.
Nearly 70% of burglaries involve forced entry through the front or back door. Our nickel-coated solid brass hook locks slide into steel keeps that run the full length of the doors outer frame.
It means your Rockdoor can’t be forced open keeping you and your family safe.
Contrary to popular belief, burglars prefer to quietly unclip and remove the glazing panels in front and back doors rather than smash their way through them. With most composite doors, it only takes them a minute or two.
In a Rockdoor, the double glazing is instead part of the door itself. So no matter how hard they try, they can’t get in.
Who looks after your home when you’re not there?
Your front and back door do for a start.
Rockdoors are consistently found to be one of the most secure options offered to homeowners. The proof being, many of our orders come via word of mouth.
Our success is down to each and every one of our doors being tailor made to be an exact fit for your home.
Rockdoor grabbed the front pages in 2004 with the headline of ‘Door that Beat the Bobbies’. No matter how much the police smashed it with battering rams, the Rockdoor didn’t give in.
Police eventually halted their attempts of breaking through a Rockdoor composite door. A great vindication for our door’s strength.
It’s reassuring to hear and read about our 3 star cylinders (the best available), multi-point locks, 50mm thickness, hinge blocks, steel drill plates, aluminum reinforcement, toughened glass, S-Glaze technology and high impact uPVC skins used on a Rockdoor.
But we reckon that what matters most to you as you lock up your home is that the only way to get past your Rockdoor is with your key.
Because our Rockdoors feature an aluminium core, with the added option of steel security mesh, it is impossible to cut through them.
Each Rockdoor is made-to-measure and so is unique to your home. Because most commonly available composite doors are mass produced - often to a standard shape, and then cut down to fit your doorway, they’re inherently weaker, less secure and prone to draughts.
Rockdoors are so tough that we started getting enquiries from the emergency services asking how to get through one, so a training course was planned to demonstrate which industrial strengthen power tools were needed. The rest is a trade secret, but rest assured, burglars can’t force open a Rockdoor composite door.

The rest is a trade secret, but rest assured, burglars can’t force open a Rockdoor composite door.
The heat that’s lost through standard composite doors (such as those made of wood or glass reinforced plastic) means they can’t compete with a Rockdoor in terms of security and energy efficiency.
Thanks to our unique S-Glaze technology eliminating draughts, and carbon fibre reinforcing meaning our door is timber free, we’re able to offer the largest range of A-rated doors available - by some way too.
Like your safety, your energy bills are in good hands.
S-Glaze is our unique way of glazing Rockdoors for the ultimate thermal performance. The specially coated double glazed unit in a Rockdoor is filled with a safe gas called Argon, a gas great for insulation.
Our glass is then bonded to the door, vacuumed and locked in for life meaning no cold air can pass through the door like other door manufacturers that use clip on glazing cassettes.
Having a secure back door is more important than having a secure front door. Why?
Burglars often target the back door to break into a home, as it’s out of sight, usually in the dark due to no street lighting and homeowners have over the years chosen cheaper inferior options for their back doors, instead spending more on their front door.
For complete safety and peace of mind, a Rockdoor back door is a must.
Without a Rockdoor back door installed on your house, you and your family are heightened risk of burglary. 70% of burglaries are through doors, and the vast majority of these are through the back door.
Ask yourself, upon hearing a noise in the night, would you go towards the front door or back door to investigate?
Stable doors add charm and convenience, and it’s no surprise that they’re such a favourite. In fact the only drawback was once the prospect of leaking weather seals and misfits over time as a result of warping wood. Not anymore.
Every maintenance free Rockdoor Stable Door is made-to-measure and features all the technology you need to enjoy headache-free stable door convenience.
Rockdoor Stable Doors are quite simply unique; everything from our innovative design, our lock options and our weather seal is bespoke to Rockdoor.
All these factors together ensure your Stable Door doesn’t leak and remains just as strong as standard Rockdoors.
One of the main reasons homeowners choose a Rockdoor Stable Door is because it allows you to open the top part of the door for ventilation, whilst keeping children and pets safe and secure inside.
When you need the benefits of a window and the security of a composite door, you need a Rockdoor Stable Door.
They may look great and let loads of light into a room, but they were once easy prey for burglars.
Rockdoor French Doors were the first in the industry to achieve Secured by Design accreditation for safety and security - whilst also being extremely energy efficient.
By not protecting your French Doors with a Rockdoor you could be leaving yourself vulnerable to burglary.
Rockdoor French Doors feature an aluminium reinforced inner frame, a high security multi point locking system, and shoot bolts that engage into the outer frame, resulting in a set of French Doors that burglars despise.
After security, style was our most important consideration.
Carefully designed lines, deep bottom rails and large glass apertures, make our French Doors perfect for a variety of uses from standard wide openings to conservatory French Doors.
The term Composite Door is a phrase used to describe a door which is made of a mixture of materials. It has become the new word to describe entrance doors.
Rockdoor has been the driving force behind composite doors for over 20 years.
During that time, more than half a million doors have been produced at our Lancashire innovation and production centre keeping UK families safe and secure.
We’re not the cheapest and we make no apology. We use exceptional components, each one layering value and quality to our product.
It’s not rocket science. The better the components, the better the door - and we always go for quality which our reputation depends upon.
From solid, indestructible locks, to aluminium reinforcement, Rockdoor is designed to a standard, so that a Rockdoor never lets you, or us, down.
We don’t use timber either. Timber results in doors that warp and swell. They also perform extremely poor in terms of energy efficiency. So Timber is not for us.
In 1996 a small dedicated team sat down in a Lancashire workshop and modelled a dream.
When it emerged, Rockdoor stunned the composite door market and transformed the way Britain's homes were protected. To this day, our founding principles remain the same - security, style and energy efficiency.
