Amongst our hugely diverse colour range is a number of industry firsts including Rich Aubergine, Chartwell Green, Duck Egg Blue, French Grey and Irish Oak plus the new Cobalt Blue, Lavender and Twilight Grey

Safe and Secure

For a secure home you need a secure door and they don’t come any more secure than a Solidor. Not only does it consist of a 48mm thick solid timber core, but it also comes ready fitted with the Ultion lock cylinder as standard


It seems only fitting that the UK’s most secure composite door now features the country’s most secure locking system; the Ultion

It’s called the ‘Ultion’ because it offers the ultimate in locking protection, capable of sensing an attack and subsequently engaging via a hidden lock to prevent intruders gaining entry, even when snapped twice

Analysis has shown that the Ultion easily outperforms the very best 3 star locks in a variety of different tests and when locked, stays locked

No key, no chance of burglary; the Ultion really is that good

New Art Deco Glass Collection

Tailor-made for the fashion-conscious homeowner

It’s not just the art deco movement that has informed the design of these extraordinary glass designs. The four different glass styles (Fairmount, Paramount, Wilton and Tate) are also reminiscent of other classical artistic styles including minimalism and the impressionist movement

Now what will you choose?

New Jo Downs Glass Collection

A world respected fused glass artist

Solidor is delighted to be able to give you exclusive access to the cutting edge, handmade contemporary glass designs of Jo Downs, the UK's leading designer and producer of fused glass.

Available in three stunning styles and four attractive colourways across our Stirling, Beeston, Ludlow, Flint door styles, these unique glass designs will completely set your Solidor apart

Exclusive to Solidor

from one of the world's most respected fused glass designers

Traditional and Italia Styles

All of our stunning composite door designs in both Italia Contemporary and Traditional styles, many can also be specially styled into a handsome set of French doors or extremely practical stable door. There’s also the option to include matching side panels with your chosen Solidor allowing you to create the perfect front door or back door for your home

Traditional Styles

The Alnwick Range

The Alnwick omits the top panel and has a large amount of glass fitted within the frame, a nod to the Art Deco period. It makes for a great alternative to traditional half glazed panel designs and is perfect for those wanting an entranceway that allows maximum natural light into the home. The huge expanse of glass is the door’s main centrepiece

The Beeston Range

Given the size of the glazed area, it's possible to create something particularly individual when combined with one of the major colours, or you can even specify an integral blind. Like all the doors in the Solidor range, there's the option of chrome, brushed, gold, black chrome, black and white door furniture. So go on, be bold in your design!

The Berkeley Range

The Berkeley contains two immaculately styled glazed units to help entice the natural light of the sun into your hallway. Because the design is largely solid, it will hugely appeal to those who crave enhanced privacy. You can even have it as a full solid door if you’re keen to completely obscure the inside of your entranceway from the outside world

The Conway Range

This door can be designed as a completely solid door, or with just the top fanlight glazed or even with a fully glazed design to take account of the vast array of glass options. The square or quad glass options can be manufactured in grey, black and red colours for added elegance. Our advice is to also choose a bold doorknocker for this design!

The Edinburgh Range

The Edinburgh is a wonderful alternative to the classic Victorian four panel door style, thanks to its two elongated glazed units. The decorative and delicate glass panels will entice the light of the sun indoors and give you a door that becomes the talk of the neighbourhood. It can also be adapted into a fully solid door if privacy is your main concern

The Flint Cottage

It's fast becoming the number one choice for homeowners with cottages, farmhouses or for those looking for a side door option, thanks to its vertical panelled appearance. We have also added a contemporary twist to the design with the introduction of single or triple diamond shaped glass features to broaden its appearance. It's also proving a great option as a stable door

The Harlech Range

Like the Conway door, a bold doorknocker is recommended such as our Urn, Lion or even traditional handmade ring design. Choose a strong colour such as black, green or blue and it may be worth considering a contrasting frame colour such as foiled white, which has a subtle grain through it

The Italia Collection

There are 19 exclusive designs, each with a range of complementary solid stainless steel designer handles and accessories. There's even the option of handmade Warwick Glass, where two pieces are never the same and also matching side panels. As with any Solidor product, the Italia Collection reflects outstanding product quality and attention to detail. Composite doors never looked so good

The Ludlow Range

It's perfectly suited to both rich colours such as red and traditional woodgrain effects such as rosewood. The two glazed panels can help shape the visual appearance of the overall door with options ranging from the traditional diamond to the more contemporary abstract. There's also the option of a solid door, which looks great in Irish Oak

The Nottingham Range

This is a unique design that can be tailored for a traditional appearance or even made for a fresh, modern design through the stunning glass and colour options. Like the Harlech door, if you choose a strong colour such as black, green or blue, it may be worth considering a contrasting frame colour such as white to add a little vibrancy to the overall design

The Stafford Range

The single arch emphasises the type of glass, from the traditional Diamond Lead to the detailed Royale. There is even the option of several glass designs, which can be manufactured in several colours including butterscotch, black and red for added elegance. Why not choose a woodgrain finish and our traditional ironmongery range for a complete authentic look

The Stirling Range

New Autumn 2018

The Trieste Range

New Autumn 2018

The Thornbury Range

It's perfectly suited to lighter colours and pastel shades such as white, cream, Chartwell Green or even Duck Egg blue. Given the understated design of the door, the choice of handle, letterbox and knocker can make a real difference, as our pewter traditional ironmongery range shows with great aplomb

Italia Styles

The Italia collection is Solidor’s most luxurious composite door. There are 19 exclusive designs, each with a range of complementary solid stainless steel designer handles and accessories. There's even the option of handmade Warwick Glass, where two pieces are never the same and also matching side panels. As with any Solidor product, the Italia Collection reflects outstanding product quality and attention to detail. Composite doors never looked so good


Brescia / Monza LHS-RHS


Composite French Doors

All of our door designs are available as double or French Doors, in all 20 colours. If you are a style savvy homeowner then forget typical PVCu French Doors, as a Solidor option can look quite exquisite

Composite Stable Doors

These are as stunning as they are practical. All of our standard and many of our Italia Collection door styles can be integrated into a stable door and you can even benefit from different colours inside and out

Side Panels

We can also offer matching side panels from our full range of doors in full height and half height options. Choose a different colour door frame to the door for added impact when you have a large door area

A wide range of accessories

We have a fine selection of beautiful accessories for our composite doors including an array of elegantly styled and finished hinges, handles, letter plates and door knockers. Whether you’re seeking a modern or traditional looking composite door, you will find an accessory to really make your Solidor stand out - see our 2018 Solidor Furniture Selection Gallery below

Security - Secure as standard

Britain’s most secure composite doors have just got even better thanks to Ultion. Fitted as standard in every Solidor, this revolutionary locking system will when locked, stay locked. Leaving a key on the inside of the lock won’t affect its performance, plus you can have as many keys cut as you like.

If a break-in occurs as a result of lock snapping, Ultion will give you £1000

Solid timber core

All of our composite doors are based on our proven 48mm design that is 10% thicker than our nearest competitors and offers incredible around-the-clock protection. The added thickness of a Solidor is because it is manufactured from a solid timber core, which helps make it the most durable composite door on the market.

It's all in the detail...

Our Solidor Furniture Selection for 2018 is wider and more exciting than ever with styles to please contemporary, classic, heritage and traditionalists alike!

Ultion Lock

It seems only fitting that the UK’s most secure composite door now features the country’s most secure locking system; the Ultion

It’s called the ‘Ultion’ because it offers the ultimate in locking protection, capable of sensing an attack and subsequently engaging via a hidden lock to prevent intruders gaining entry, even when snapped twice

Analysis has shown that the Ultion easily outperforms the very best 3 star locks in a variety of different tests and when locked, stays locked

No key, no chance of burglary; the Ultion really is that good

Lock Lock

With Lock Lock, better security is built right in. Because when you lock a door featuring Lock Lock, you lock the spindle. This patented design features a simple, super-safe switch which replaces the need to turn a key to lock your door. There's no fuss, no risk and no searching for keys. You simply press down the switch and your door is more than locked. It's Lock Locked. So your family is better protected. Instantly


The AV3 locking system is an automatic multi-point locking system with independently acting hooks for claw action and sealing elements for a dynamic contact pressure. By pulling the door closed, the sealing elements and the sturdy hook are triggered by means of a magnetic release on the frame and the door is secured against undesired entry. This ensures that the door always remains securely locked and remains firmly in its frame even without additional locking

The sturdy hooks, sealing elements and latch can be retracted manually using the locking cylinder or door handle

Avantis Lock

The Avantis Lock is exclusive to Solidor and was recently subject to the very highest testing procedures at a UKAS accredited Test Centre. According to an independent testing house it was 'the strongest composite door yet tested' thanks to the hardware and the fact that the Solidor slab is a solid timber core, rather than a foam filled GRP door that other manufacturers use. This new lock provides the largest and strongest hook and bolt system in the door sector. Like many features from Solidor, this new locking mechanism carries the market's first 25mm triangulated dead bolt, which makes for greater compression and security on a closed door. Another key feature is the deadlock, which also operates from the action of lifting the handle, rather than a key turn

The Avantis lock easily passed PAS 24 for security, which requires that the lock can sustain a manual attack for three minutes. In fact after two men had attacked the door for five minutes, they gave up to test the Solidor hinge, which also comfortably exceeded the required specification. Look at our video to see for yourself just how secure our doors are. Solidor can boast that not only are their doors some of the most secure in the market, they are also some of the most innovative!

Key Wind Up

Our Key Wind Up locking systems are used on doors where there is no locking handle, but traditional pull door furniture. Typical Edwardian and Georgian period doors had large pull handles and knobs and also our luxurious Italia Collection features the Key Wind Up locks, to enable the introduction of some very striking contemporary door handles. We also incorporate Key Wind Up locking when our traditional hand made antique door furniture is specified. Behind the Key Wind Up lock is an STV Cobra 2 mechanism, which is tested in accordance with DIN18103 (burglar resistant doors) and approved by major UK insurance companies

The deadbolt and hooks are thrown by turning the key and it also features a secure locking mechanism using sintered metal gears, which ensures a long service life. The STV Cobra 2 has been tested in accordance with PAS23 & PAS24 standards and the deadbolt can withstand in excess of 4.5kN end load, to comply with the additional Police 'Secured by Design' initiative. Reliability is provided by the fact that it has been endurance tested to 100,000 cycles and 30,000 cycles under load

Heritage AV2

As you would expect from a pioneer in the composite door market, we've pulled off yet another first in the door market with the introduction of the AV2 Heritage Door Lock. This new lock satisfies the need for traditional looking rim latches on composite doors, yet with the benefit of high security, multipoint locking. The AV2 is seen as an upgrade from the standard Key Wind Up and traditional rim lock used on our doors. Up until now, modern multi-point locking systems haven't lent themselves to doors that feature pull door furniture, particularly Georgian and Edwardian period doors and it has been a topic of discussion for the composite door sector

The AV2 Heritage Locking System has the euro profile locking cylinder at a similar height to a traditional round cylinder and the lock is operated automatically as soon as the door is closed. This key feature means that an external lever handle is not required to operate the locking points and the lock can be opened externally by turning the key a quarter of a turn or deadlocked with an additional full turn. From the inside, the door can be opened by an internal thumb turn, again with a quarter turn. The door is automatically locked when closed from the inside or outside and the key is then required to gain entry from the outside. The AV2 has been engineered and manufactured in Germany as a quality product and is Police Secured by Design and PAS23/24 accredited
