What are fiberglass doors made of?
Fiberglass doors have three main components which are: the frame, the core, and the skin. The frame is made of a high strength composite material that creates a strong foundation. The core is made of polyurethane insulating foam to soundproof and insulate the door. The exterior of the door, called the skin – is made of high-impact, compression-molded fiberglass. The skin is responsible for protecting the door from splintering, rusting, warping, and denting.
