What is a double rebated door?

 The term “Double rebate” is thrown around alot within the composite door industry, but what does it really mean?

Quite simply put, a double rebated door has two seals, one making contact with the outside of the door and one on the inside. This adds twice the defense against the wind and rain when compared to a single rebate door, as even if the water and wind get through the outside seal, they still have to penetrate the inside seal. That’s what makes double rebated composite doors seriously tough and resistant to even extreme weather conditions which is why we especially recommend them for particularly remote locations such as coastal facing or hilly properties. 

Our 70mm thick double rebated doors are also significantly thicker than single rebated doors as the door needs to be thicker to accomodate the second seal. This also has a significant effect on the U–values of the door as well as security as the extra door thickness keeps out the cold and any potential intruders. The extra door thickness also creates enough space to allow for triple glazing which comes as standard with all our double rebated doors. 

I hope this helped clarify a few things in regards to our double rebated composite doors. If you have any further questions, please email and we’ll happily help!
