Fiber Glass Doors

Our rustproof fiberglass door panel is not only scratch and dent resistant; it offers exceptional strength and durability too!! Fiberglass is known to require little maintenance over the years, to be strong, durable, rot and moisture free as well as energy efficient but is more expensive than steel doors. Our fiberglass door panel manufacturing process delivers a superior finish and remarkable quality of paint and stain.

Fiberglass doors score high when durability matters. They last long and stay sturdy surpassing severe climatic conditions. In comparison to wood, you will find that fiberglass doors are more energy efficient. You have to treat wood door with preservatives to protect it from termites, but fiberglass door makes you free from any such trouble.

Cost:

Fiberglass doors are less expensive than wooden doors, but with utmost sturdiness and durability, they add value to your money. You may need to renew or repair the wood door numerous times, but fiberglass can last for decades.

Durability:

If we evaluate fiberglass exterior doors with wood doors, the later has the tendency to bloat and decay in the long run, and are likely to endure irretrievable damage as these doors a vulnerable to dampness and temperature changes. On the other hand, low maintenance requirement of fiberglass doors is one of the prime advantages as fiberglass door does not split, distort, decay or bloat due to clamminess or moisture and can defy harsher weather environment than wood doors.

Finish:

Fiberglass doors look very much like wood doors that it is difficult to distinguish between the two. Wood doors have a natural texture with attractive grains and finishes, where as fiberglass doors are created to reflect actual wood grain. When necessary, both materials can be painted or stained, sanded and refinished.

True fiberglass is made entirely from very thin fibers of glass and may also be known as fibreglass and glass fibre. It is primarily used to reinforce many different polymers, such as plastic. These resulting composite materials are also commonly referred to as "fiberglass," although they are properly called fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) or glass-reinforced plastic (GRP).
Fiberglass doors have a number of advantages over doors made from more conventional materials. They provide good insulation, making them energy efficient, and are generally longer lasting and more moisture resistant than wood doors.

Insulation

Insulation refers to the ability of a material to reduce the rate of heat transfer. Fiberglass has a much higher level of insulation than many other common materials.
Try: BobVila.com compares fiberglass doors with those of wood and steel doors, especially their respective insulative properties.

Wood grain

Many fiberglass doors are made with a wood grain finish that mimics the appearance of real wood. This is a common consideration in the purchase of fiberglass doors, as fiberglass doors can have a very convincing wood grain.
Try: Iver H. Carlson & Son discusses the qualities of fiberglass doors, especially the issue of wood grain.

Fiberglass Composite

Fiberglass composite doors are composed of fiberglass and other materials, such as plastic and wood. Most so-called fiberglass doors are actually made from a fiberglass composite.
Try: Home Tips provides a variety of tips on home repair and describes the construction of fiberglass composite doors.

R-value

The R-value is a measure of the insulation capability of a material that is used by the construction industry. Fiberglass doors have good insulators, so their R-value is relatively high.
Try: Therma Tru Doors has an extensive glossary of terms that relate to fiberglass doors, including R-value.

Fiberglass stain

It is more common to stain fiberglass doors than it is to paint them. Fiberglass stain is quite different from wood stain and requires thinner coats.
Try: Ask the Builder describes fiberglass stain and also provides specific instructions for applying it to fiberglass doors.

Catalyst

A catalyst is a substance that greatly increases the speed of a chemical reaction. The manufacturing of FRP doors involves coating a plastic form with a resin. A catalyst must be added to the resin to accelerate its curing process so that it will bond with the plastic.
