Recyclable composite material is the new green standard in exterior doors


A new composite plastic material is gaining popularity in the European door industry. By replacing traditional materials such as aluminium and wood with a new and exceptionally strong plastic composite, buildings can increase insulation levels significantly. At the same time, the material is 100 pct. recyclable.


Insulation and thermal bridges are a problem for producers of exterior doors. Doors need to be strong to handle stress of daily use, especially heavy exterior doors in Northern Europe with sub-zero winter temperatures. This has traditionally limited the choice of materials and left door-producers with wood and metal – materials with bad insulation properties.

Benefits from the new composite material when used for exterior doors:

» Lower weight
» Better insulation
» Completely recyclable solution

New types of polymer composites change this. A number of European manufacturers of exterior doors have begun producing highly insulating composite doors, which still have the strength of traditional materials.
