G.R.P. (Glass Reinforced Polyester) garage doors are quite simply the best doors that you can buy. G.R.P. has a better strength to weight ratio than steel, is a natural insulating material, it won’t warp, shrink or rust and is virtually maintenance free.
A modern composite laminate, G.R.P. is a versatile and well proven construction material that has been in use for over 50 years in a huge variety of applications, from boatbuilding, to motor vehicles, to building materials.
GRP is an inherently dent resistant laminate, able to withstand knocks and blows that would easily permanently deform and damage a traditional steel door.
Peterborough Doors fit GRP doors which are tested to, and exceed, the same stringent impact resistance requirements as those stipulated under BS6206:1981 as it applies to Safety Glass and Safety Plastics for use in critical locations in buildings, thereby confirming and guaranteeing the toughness of the product.
GRP is probably the ultimate material from which to manufacture a house doors.
Unlike steel, GRP door panels will not rust or corrode, and are particularly suitable for areas close to the coast where steel doors are severely tested and often have a disappointingly brief life.
Unlike timber, GRP door panels will not shrink, swell, warp or twist and do not require the regular attention needed to ensure a timber door retains its good looks.
G.R.P. Composite Doors can be moulded in smooth gloss finishes or with a stunningly life like Wood grain finish, using moulds taken from real high quality solid timber door designs to give an authentic and faithful finish to your house door that will even deceive the experts.
When cured, each GRP door is a single homogenous composite panel that includes galvanised steel stiffening for strength and solidity as an integral part of its structure.
One further significant feature of GRP is its’ ease of repair. Should a door panel become scratched or damaged, GRP, more than any other material used in Peterborough Doors, construction is easily and effectively restored leaving a repair that would pass the closest inspection.
