Blacks the new White for Front Doors….well almost!

Posted by Lea · April 8th 2011

Choosing the colour of your front door or back door is dependant of your individual taste, but also on the type of property you live in. Your door needs to be in keeping with the style, age and character of your property yet is clearly distinguishable from your neighbours to provide that individual touch you may be looking for.

White front doors, especially for Rockdoor, are by far the most common colour manufactured, however, Black has grown dramatically over the years to become our second most popular front door colour.

Most composite doors and uPVC doors over the years have been white because when exposed to the heat of the sun, the darker the colour, the more heat it absorbs and so the greater the risk of bending, warping or even cracking. In line with our outstanding reputation as the composite door market leader, Rockdoor found an innovative solution to this limitation.

We scientifically developed our exclusive Heat Shield Technology, which prevents heat build-up, so a black composite door can reflect the sun’s harmful rays in the manner of a white door! This also applies to all Rockdoor colours and wood effect foils.

Selecting composite front doors, back doors or stable doors from Rockdoor and you can enjoy the charm and authentic wood grain appearance of a traditional wooden door in the colour of your choice, along with a host of additional modern technology benefits.

Rockdoor composite doors offer the highest level of security, far exceeding that of UPVC doors, thanks to our state of the art, multipoint locking system and unique inner and outer frame. Composite doors are also incredibly durable as the foil used is thick enough to withstand scratches and so on. Better still, composite doors are also low maintenance and never require painting!
