Gripcore Is Core On New Door

A Gripcore door

Doorco, is launching a new addition to its composite door range with a new hybrid door slab engineered using Gripcore technology.

The new door has the same GRP skin but with a solid timber core and thus greater tolerance and security.


 “Gripcore Technology is a matrix of cross laminated engineered timber and hardwood stiles and rails with pressed GRP skins, resulting in a door that will not crack, move or de-laminate. Safety and security have been built into Gripcore’s DNA, delivering a stronger, heavier and more robust door.”

– Dan Sullivan 

Managing Director, Doorco


10 Year Warranty

“It is the most engineered door I have ever seen," continues Doorco's Sullivan. "In fact, we are so confident in the product and the engineering and investment behind it, we are offering a 10 Year Warranty on all Gripcore doors, with a further guarantee that the door will not move more than 3mm in its lifetime. Both will give installer customers confidence for years to come."



Sullivan adds: “For existing Doorco customers, incorporating Gripcore into their portfolio will be easy as manufacturing requirements do not vary from Doorco’s standard door. It will be available as a one size fits all 914mm blank. This means from one slab you can make all required door sizes which makes stocking Gripcore simple. There are both traditional and contemporary options like a woodgrain panelled door, farmhouse, flush, Monza II and LINKS. The Gripcore range will also include some bespoke glass and colour options.


More stable than anything on the market

“The composite door market is a competitive place and for us, it’s all about innovating products which help our customers stand out from the crowd. Creating a solid core Doorco door was the next logical step for us and I was intrigued by the initial idea of using Doorco’s collective experience to engineer out all the issues consumers face with the current market offering. Doorco is pushing the boundaries to create a hybrid of modern and traditional materials, resulting in a composite door slab that is stronger, more rigid and more stable than anything on the market. So far, our customers are delighted with the new product and we anticipate it being a real game-changer for Doorco and the composite door market as a whole.”
