Bowater DUO Composite Door Styles

Bowater DUO Logo

A stylish front door is one of the first impressions of your home – why not make yours as individual as you are?

With such a wide range of colours, styles, glazing and finishing options – you’ll probably never see another DUO door like yours.

Whether you prefer time-honoured and traditional, or contemporary and cutting-edge, you can choose a door style to suit you and your home. The choice of colour, glass, furniture and finish means there are thousands of possible combinations. You can even complement your door with matching side panels, sidelights and toplights.

The DUO door range has been designed with symmetry and style in mind; each one is finished with attention to detail and built in Britain, using the strongest, low-maintenance materials. Thanks to their extra sharp woodgrain definition, they are virtually indistinguishable from a traditional timber door, but have a range of modern advantages.

The tough GRP skin means your door will withstand any knocks and scratches, and it has been developed to withstand extreme UV testing, so it will not fade in strong sunlight.

A well-made, well-chosen door from South Lakes Windows Ltd will improve not only the appearance, but also the value of your home.

• There is a great range of colours and styles to choose from with the DUO range
• The low threshold option means these doors minimise a potential trip hazard and provide easy access
• White, Rosewood or Golden Oak frames are available as standard
• There is an exclusive range of decorative glass designs to choose from

DUO Composite Door Benefits

  • Energy-efficient – lowering your heating bills
  • 54% thicker than a standard door – leaving would-be intruders out in the cold
  • Double compression seals – improved thermal and acoustic efficiency
  • Solid and secure – all DUO doors use a multi-point locking system

Available in 7 colourways, plus the option of foils on both sides for those that prefer a woodgrain finish within their home as opposed to the standard white interior.

Every DUO door is double rebated as standard, to help you keep the heat inside where it belongs.

Duo Composite Door Colours

The colour of your front door says a lot about your home and sets the tone for the style within so think carefully about this important decision.

Duo Composite Door Colour Range

DUO Composite Door Colour Range

Bowater Composite Doors are available in a wide choice of colours and wood grain effects;

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Black
  • White

  • Rosewood

On selected styles, the Golden Oak and Rosewood woodgrain effect UPVC doors are available with the colour on both sides, in place of the standard white interior finish – see the door styles section or request our brochure for details on which door styles this applies to.

Colour Decisions?

So what colour of front door will you choose? Here are a few hints to help you…..

A White composite door always looks clean and fresh and is suited to either traditional or contemporary properties.

Black UPVC doors can make a dramatic impact, particularly when coupled with chrome door furniture – a classic combination.

A Blue front door creates an elegant entrance to your home that is timeless.

A Red front door is the ideal choice for those that want something a little different and to brighten the entrance to their home – particularly well suited to pale stone properties.

A Green front door sets a calming tone for visitors and is suited to almost any type of brick or stone.

A Golden Oak or Rosewood front door both add warmth due to their natural woodgrain effect finish. For properties that already feature Golden Oak, Rosewood or other woodgrain windows, this really is the perfect choice and many styles of Bowater Composite Doors are available with Golden Oak and Rosewood on the inside of the door too, for those that want to continue the wood theme within their home.

Once you’ve made the important decision about the colour of your new front door, you want it to stay looking bright and colourful. That’s why the external surface of a Bowater Composite Door panel is made from GRP (Glass Reinforced Polymer). GRP is a highly durable material that is much more hard wearing than a traditional painted timber door which means that time consuming “touch-ups” are required much less frequently – if at all. So your Bowater Composite Door will remain a colourful addition to your home for may years to come.

Composite Door Furniture

Add the finishing touches to your door by choosing from a complete range of matching quality door handles, letterplates, urn knockers, spyholes, security chain and numerals in gold and chrome effect finish.

To complement your new Duo Plus entrance door and your existing interior decor you may choose from a range of 4 hardware finishes; white, brass, chrome and black. These solid zinc handles are contemporary in design and will enhance the appearance of all doors regardless of colour and design. Brass and Chrome colour options both have a lacquer finish that will help prevent corrosion, especially around coastal areas.
