Glass Options

You don’t just have a plethora of amazing colours to choose from at Solidor. We have also managed to develop an impressive selection of glass options for those wanting to add a wholly different dimension to their door. Your options include coloured, bevelled and textured glass, which all beautifully complement every single one of our stunning composite door designs. Thoroughly assess each form of glass before commissioning the final design plus The Art Deco Collection and the exclusive Jo Downs Fused Glass Collection

Frame Options


Our composite door range keeps on growing and each design can encompass two contrasting varieties of frame; a sculptured door frame and contemporary chamfered frame. Both options can be adorned in 18 different colour combinations and are manufactured using lead-free materials supplied by Kömmerling, the experts when it comes to PVCU extruders. We can also give you access to low thresholds from Stormguard, all of which are mobility friendly

Security

It's reassuring to know that our composite doors are arguably the most secure on the market, featuring insurance and Police approved locking systems.

ABS Master

We know protecting your home and family is important. Knowing your door is fitted with an ABS Master lock will give you the peace of mind you’re doing all you can, to do just that

This 3-star, tried and tested British Kitemarked approved cylinder creates a barrier if it’s attacked. Avocet are so sure of its high performance; they’re willing to offer £2000* if it’s snapped by a burglar!

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, all with a £2000 homeowner guarantee*, 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

AV3

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

Digital Smart Locks

We also offer a range of next generation digital Smart Locks from trusted brands like Yale and Ultion which can be added to most of our Solidor range 

Smart locks allow control from inside or outside your home, even remotely

You can also set up temporary access for guests or tradespeople

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

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 £2000

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
