The Australian climate can be harsh, and a typical timber door can expand, contract, and split when exposed to rapid changes temperature variations. In areas where there is not enough overhead protection from the elements, or where a door is exposed to rapid temperature fluctuations, we strongly recommend a fibre glass door. These doors can withstand rain and sun and are a great long-lasting solution. As compared to wood fiberglass is very low maintenance and is one of the most hardened materials. It is robust, stable, and offers excellent insulation properties.
Benefits of a Fibreglass door?
Fiberglass components are used in a variety of construction applications, in buildings, on land and sea, which all capitalize on the inherent qualities of strength, durability, and moisture resistance.
The polyurethane core in Fiberglass makes it more resistant to damage than traditional wooden doors. Fiberglass doors withstand the elements without cracking or bowing and they won’t rot or warp. Fiberglass composite ranks high in impact testing because it withstands impacts without deformation and when tested, performs twice as strong as aluminium.
- Moisture Resistance
Due to the seamless fabrication of fibreglass doors, moisture is unable to penetrate the surface substrates eliminating the concerns of rot, warping and improving the weather ability characteristics.
- Sound Transmission
Fibreglass doors can reduce up to 5 times the transfer of sound in comparison to a solid timber door.
- Energy Efficiency
Fiberglass doors feature fully insulated cores designed to reduce thermal transfer between outdoors and inside, giving you better protection against cold and heat.
How different does a Fibreglass door look to a traditional timber door?
Manufacturers have gotten so good at mimicking the look and feel of wood that you would be mistaken for thinking you were looking at a timber door. They are typically covered with an artificial grain and with the right choice of colour, you can get the look and feel of a solid timber door without all the hassle.
