Everyone loves a Bank Holiday Weekend - there's one less day of work, you get to stay up late on Sunday night, and, if weather allows, you might even get the BBQ out of your garden shed for the first time!
This Bank Holiday, why not try something different?
If you're looking to add a bit of TLC to your home to give it a fresh, modern appearance, then one of our composite doors will be just for you.
Our online door designer makes it easier than ever to build your own door from scratch, in a step-by-step process, which can take only a matter of minutes.
Quality control is always something we take extremely serious here at Total Doors - and we never let a door leave our warehouse before it's been fully checked by a member of staff.
We build each door to order - so when you submit a design using our door designer, that door is then built from scratch to meet those exact specifications.
At each stage of the process - from the cutting of the door, to the decorations, and then the final finishing touches, our manufacturing team compare the door to the order to make sure you get exactly what you want.
When it comes to fire doors, our motto is 'prepare for the worst by installing the best'.
The primary purpose of a fire door is to, of course, keep a fire contained. We use only the highest quality components, which have been thoroughly tested, within our third party accredited fire doors.
Keeping a fire contained gives your family, or employees, vital time needed to escape a building when a fire occurs. Every extra second saves lives, and our FD30 fire doors are built to withstand fires for thirty minutes.
All of our composite doors are manufactured to the highest standards. Not only do we use the best materials, to ensure your door lasts as long as you'd expect, but we also have stringent quality assurance procedures to make sure every door which leaves our factory is exactly as ordered.
Where our doors differ to many, and what our customers really appreciate, is the finishing touches we add to a door.
Whether it's the pattern in the glass, the type of letterbox, or the frame around - we know it's the little details which really add up.
With yellow, amber and even red storm warnings in place across the UK this week, did you know that our composite doors offer fantastic thermal efficiency, which in turn helps keep your house warm and saves you money on your energy bills?
Don't shiver inside when Storm Emma is on the outside - talk to one of our sales advisors who can give you helpful, obligation free advice on what our composite doors can offer you.
Every week we get orders for doors of all shapes, sizes, colours and functions.
Whether it's a vibrant red door for your new home, an automated system for your new office, or certified fire doors to stop flames from spreading, it's non-stop in our warehouse.
Every Monday morning, we have a list of orders from the weekend before which we start work on. As we fire our machines up, to start cutting and designing the doors, the team also collect the furniture and check the specifications of the order.
Feeling The Cold? Composite Doors Can Keep Your House Warm
Wednesday, February 7, 2018
With snow falling across the UK this week, is your house feeling colder than ever? Are you wrapping up on the sofa more with a blanket? Is your energy bill going up because you're keeping on the heating more?
Unfortunately, we can't do anything about the weather. The British weather is going rain or snow no matter what we do!
However, our high quality composite doors are built to keep the cold out and the warmth in, which in turn will result in a cosier house.
Following an expansion to our new premises in Dafen, Llanelli, we are delighted to introduce another member to our team.
Michelle Humphreys has now joined us as the Sales Director, with over 20 years of experience in the affordable housing sector, and 17 years of those years specialising within the composite door marketplace.
She has worked onsite managing contracts from concept to completion, as well as managing all aspects of compliancy, sales and specification.
We are now settled in to our brand new headquarters in Llanelli and we took the opportunity to produce a promotional video which gives a fantastic look at our new premises, as well as a look at how a composite door is manufactured.
There have been big changes at Total Doors over the last few weeks and we are now settled in at our brand new offices in Llanelli!
We have been busy at work taking snaps and putting together a video this week - which we will share with you next week - but we wanted to update you on our new address and phone number before we gave you the full tour.
Due to continued success and growth, Total Doors are looking for a full time works co-ordinator to join a friendly, established team. We are searching for a hard-working, conscientious individual who is keen to learn with self-motivated abilities.
It is a huge honour for us to be nominated in these prestigious awards as it recognises the huge amount of work we put into manufacturing the highest quality doors, as well as providing the very best service to our customers and trade partners.
Are you looking for a unique Christmas gift for a loved one this year? We know it's only October, but before you know it the tree will be up and the turkey will be in the freezer, so you better start planning now!
Whether it's for your partner or a parent, a brand new composite door can breathe a lot of new life into a home, and with our huge selection of styles, colours, frames and more, you'll be certain to find one which is just right for them.
How can you do this quickly and easily? Using our online door designer.
As autumn comes around, temperatures continue to drop and the 'great' British weather of rain and wind returns, are you considering how much money you could save on your energy bills?
As well as double glazing on your windows, having a door which keeps the heat in your house can make more than an insignificant impact on your bills!
Did you know that a composite door from Total Doors is 19% more thermally efficient than a 48mm solid timber core composite door, and 17% more thermally efficient than a 44mm traditional timber panelled door?
As Total Doors continues to grow, customers from around the UK are contacting to us about our diverse range of products - from stylish composite doors, to bespoke access control systems.
We always put our customers first and that's why our reputation across the country is unbeaten. Whether they need technical advice, reassurance about a delivery, or friendly and professional installation we always deliver.
"Avoid The Worst By Installing The Best" - Our Fire Door Message
Tuesday, August 8, 2017
This article was published in the September edition of 'Clearview' magazine about the range of third party acreddited composite doors which we supply across the UK:
Following the tragic scenes of Grenfell Tower and the Government's renewed interest in fire safety, Swansea-based door manufacturers Total Doors Ltd have been on the front line in promoting responsible manufacturing and installation of fire doors from companies with third party accreditation.
Those are the words of our competition winner, Samantha Davies, who is absolutely delighted with her new composite door - and equally impressed with the fantastic service she received from Total Doors.
Following the installation of her door, we sat down with Samantha for a cup of tea.
She said: "I'd highly recommend Total Doors UK, from the start the communication was instant.
Since launching our nxt-gen range of composite doors a few weeks ago we've had incredible demand and fantastic feedback.
We always strive to bring our customers the very newest doors, and our nxt-gen range is our best selection yet.
So what makes our nxt-gen range so special? Here are seven simple reasons.
With six door designs to choose from in a huge variety of colours, including Anthracite, Grey and Chartwell, you've never had more options from your door. No matter what style you're looking for, our nxt-gen range will have it!
The question seems simple - but there's more answers than you may think. Picking the right door for your home requires a lot of thought. What style do you want? What colour should it be? Do you want windows, and if so what style of glass?
These are things that many home or business owners don't consider at first - but once they begin browsing our range of high quality composite doors, they realise there's a lot more options than they originally imagined.
Nothing puts a smile on our face in the office on a Monday morning like a glowing testimonial, and we've received two today!
We always put our customers first - from the moment they begin designing their dream door, until we know they're happy with the completed installation.
One of our customers, Bev, said: "We are absolutely 'over the moon' with the look and quality of your products and would recommend your company and personnel as highly satisfied. Thank you once again for everything.”
With the sun shining, have you noticed that you're not getting as much light into your home as you would like? In the Winter months you may be happy with doors that have small windows - but when summer rolls around, you don't want to have a dark house.
This is where our selection of high quality French and bi-fold composite doors became an ideal choice for brightening up your house!
Looking to add a little style to your office? A new desk, a large TV and a comfortable chairs are all great things to impress customers - but have you thought about the first impress your office makes?
Your customers will always look at your door first - to locate the number of your property or signage highlighting your building, and of course to gain access to the office.
This is where one of our stylish and modern composite doors really shines.
Have you ever considered improving the safety of your home with a fire door? Here at Total Doors we offer high quality, stylish and certified FD30 doors which are built to achieve increased protection from a fire.
Manufactured in the UK, our range of FD30 fire doors pass the most stringent legal and regulatory requirements, and are all third party accredited.
We know that our preferred installers are always looking for the best doors on the market, so today we're focusing on the first GRP composite fully automated French doors that have been installed to the BSEN16005 certification under the machine directive.
Not only do these doors look modern and stylish, they're fantastic for selling to the sector of the market who are looking for an easy way to control who enters their home, and also customers who value being able to open their door remotely from anywhere in their property.

Tuesday, March 28, 2017
We are looking to expand our list of preferred installers across the UK - could you be the next company to join our list?
As a composite door installer we know there's a lot of options on the market, with many companies offering a variety of options and products.
Where we stand out for our preferred installers is our service. Despite being a rapidly growing company, we still provide the personal touch to each and every single one of our customers, and that extends to our installers too.
Whether you're buying your first home or giving your family home a new lick of paint, you always want it to look its best. When it comes to picking the right door, there are a lot of options on the market, but very few manufacturers can offer something which is suitable for all styles of houses.
Unless you have a special interest in doors, you might not be aware what a composite door is and the benefits they provide - which is absolutely fine! Buying a door shouldn't be a regular thing in your life, so we know that our customers will always have some questions.
Although this article isn't exhaustive, it does run through some of the biggest benefits to purchasing a composite door for your family home, office or commercial property!
