What makes Residor composite doors special
A premium GRP composite door
Encased in glass-reinforced plastic (GRP, the same material used to make the hulls of boats) for exceptional strength and all weather performance.
Unlike most GRP doors on the market that have only a 1.6mm GRP skin, Residor doors have a 3.6mm skin that complies with the most up to date PAS24:2016 security test guidelines.
