An Overview of the Hurst Composite Door Designer

An Overview of the Hurst Composite Door Designer

At Leekes, we supply composite doors for your home in South Wales. A composite door adds a layer of inherent strength to your property because it combines both uPVC and aluminium to give you the best of both worlds. This results in a door that will last for decades.

We work with Hurst, one of the companies that manufacture our composite doors. Hurst is a worldwide renowned company. Their doors are made from a rigid polymer subframe, a high impact GRP skin, and a high density CFC- free polyurethane foam core to bolster security.

Hursts composite doors are available in a variety of beautiful styles, and we offer a composite door designer. The door designer gives you thousands of combination designs, allowing you to create your ideal design. In this article, we are going to look at the composite door designer in more detail.

Choose Door Type  

Once you click on the composite door designer page, there are two types of doors to choose from. These options are a Composite Door or a Composite Stable Door. A composite door is extremely popular because it is weatherproof, low maintenance, and thermally efficient. The doors look fantastic and will enhance any home’s kerb appeal. 

A composite stable door offers a traditional look to a home with the upper and lower leaves working independently from each other. However, unlike a traditional stable door, a composite stable door is surrounded by a subframe that gives them stability and security.

Select A Door Collection 

After you have chosen your door, we give you a choice of four designs that will begin the customisation process. A Classic design gives you a selection of styles that are suited for a traditional home, such as Composite Half Arched, Composite Crown and Composite Half Georgian. The glazing lets natural light flood through your home.

We also include the Contemporary Bohemia range, which consists of modern doors. The Bohemia range gives your home a fresh and modern look. The doors have a high level of thermal efficiency, which keeps natural heat indoors and cold air outside, helping save money on your energy bills. 

Select Frame Style 

Customise the frame styles with top panels and lights, which can be activated on the top, right, and left sides. These sidelights will bring extra daylight into your home while providing a welcoming feel. You also have a choice on which side the hinge will fit. 

Choose Your Door Colour 

The Hurst Designer gives you a wide selection of external colours to stamp your personality all over your home. Select from a plethora of colours such as Chartwell Green, Candy Red, Rosewood, and Cream. If you want a dual colour effect, select from White, Slate Grey, or all our RAL colours.

The Hurst Designer lets you choose the colour of the frame, which gives your home a welcoming appearance. There is a plethora of colours on offer, which includes Oak, Rosewood, and White Foil. Alternatively, choose from our RAL colour options. While for the internal colour, go for a White frame or a bespoke RAL selection to colour match the frame. We offer many choices at your disposal. 

Choose a Sculptured Profile 

The door designer gives you a choice from three profiles: Eurocell Chamfered, Liniar’s Chamfered Profile, and Eurocell Chamfered Slimline. A chamfered profile gives a traditional window a modern look and a neat image. The chamfered styles have a traditional look with excellent thermal efficiency options, giving you excellent thermal options. 

A slimline profile, on the other hand, gives a slim look that you can only find on aluminium windows. This will give a sleek, modern appearance to your property while letting floods of natural light in, keeping your property warm. The profiles can be finished off in your choice of colour.

Secured by Design 

To keep your door even more secure, add Secured by Design. This is an initiative backed by the police which ensures every home is safe to live in. The Secured by Design upgrade includes a spyhole, a safety chain, laminated glass which prevents hard knocks, and a security cowl. This prevents criminals from fishing through a letterbox to unlock latches. 

Select A Glass Design for your Hardware 

With plenty of stained glass patterns to choose from, there are lots of choices which can be customised to your needs. A glass design increases privacy levels in your room as well, giving you a unique space. Choose from a range of finishes that help your home stand out even more. 

Choose Accessories For Your Door 

Finally, choose a range of accessories for your door. These include knockers, handles, and safety chains. This helps you tailor your door to your needs.
