Force 8 Calls On UK Homeowners To Beef Up Their Security With A Composite Door

UK composite door manufacturer Force 8 has called on homeowners across the UK to make sure their properties are safe from intruders.
Over 65 per cent of burglaries are attempted through doors and in order to beat the crooks, Force 8 has urged people to fit stylish, intruder-proof, composite doors.
After more than 20 years in the replacement windows and doors trade, the team at Force 8 has a wealth of knowledge about the best products on the market. And when it comes to doors, there’s only one product that meets the firm’s high standards – the composite door.
Managing director Dennis Sumner said: "Many people are unaware that uPVC panelled doors are made up in two parts, similar to a window. The frame is welded together and then a thin plastic panel is clipped in place by glazing beads.
"This panel offers no security. A few sharp kicks from a burglar makes the beads fly out, in goes the panel and in steps the burglar."
Dennis speaks from experience. He has fitted doors for hundreds of customers who have been the victims of crime because their previous uPVC door couldn’t withstand pressure from a burglar.
He said: "One customer told me their uPVC back door was kicked in with alarming ease. We fitted a composite door and he feels safer now that his property is more secure."
The Force 8 High Security Composite Doors are manufactured from high impact-resistant materials. The door slabs have been tested to vigorous PAS24 standards for weather tightness and enhanced security. A PAS24 certificate is the customer’s guarantee that a composite door has passed a series of rigorous 'break-in' tests.
Each door component is evaluated, including handles, barrels, glazed panels, door corners, the locking mechanism and the door’s surface. This makes certain that each and every door in the stylish collection is 100 per cent intruder-proof.
These doors have been put to the test by simulating a burglary to show how much battering they can withstand. Go to www.force8.co.uk and click on ‘beat the burglar’ to see the results. On the same website, a second demonstration shows the door being hit repeatedly by an FBI battering device.
Each door offers six times more insulation and is available in eight woodgrain colours and in thousands of different styles and glazing combinations. They can be supplied as combination frames with arches, side panels and top lights. At Force 8, composite fire doors, composite stable doors and French doors are all available as well as encapsulated Venetian blinds.
The full, extensive product range is available to view at either of Force 8's showrooms at School Street Industrial Estate, Hazel Grove, which is open seven days a week, or our new Altrincham showroom at 74 Park Road, Timperley.
