Strong Timber Materials

When choosing a front door, homeowners must consider not only the style but also the material they want their installation to be made from. With so many options on the market, including uPVC, composite and aluminium, as well as of course timber, it can be a daunting task to understand which – if any – are better than the others for strength and performance.

While wooden doors are often most renowned for their elegant, traditional aesthetics, they are also impressively strong. At Dempsey Dyer, we manufacture secure timber doors from exceptional quality timber. This material is already one of the densest and most durable available, so refining our choice even further means we’re able to offer strength beyond the norm.

Guaranteed Safety

We guarantee that our timber doors are some of the most secure on the market. In fact, any of our wooden doors that feature the tough and highly secure MACO locks come with a secure guarantee. That way, our customers have total peace of mind that they have made the right investment.

MACO locks make our secure timber doors some of the toughest around, putting advanced mechanisms between properties and any unwanted intruders. With steel bolts, locking hooks and the cutting-edge hook & bolt combination, our wooden doors are a force to be reckoned with, resisting forced entry attempts with secure, durable hardware precision-engineered to keep people safe.

Secured by Design

It’s thanks to the inherent strength and additional hardware of our secure timber doors that we’re proud to say they meet Secured by Design (SBD) approval. This UK Police initiative rigorously tests uPVC, aluminium, composite and timber doors alike and holds them all the same high standards. With this approval, they have demonstrated their ability to resist the latest and more prevalent forced entry attempts.

Our timber doors can achieve SBD status to give our customers total peace of mind. Wherever at the front or back of a property, our wooden doors are the first line of defence between a peaceful and safe living space and those who want to disrupt it. That’s why we’re proud to manufacture secure timber doors that meet Secured by Design approval with high performance hardware to keep people safe.
