Sledgehammer Test

February 11, 2020

 

Endurance Composite doors often boast about how strong and secure their composite doors are.

 

However, you no longer have to just take their word for it!

 

They recruited Gladiator, bodybuilder and all-round muscle man, James Crossley aka Hunter, to put their doors to the test. In their marketing video, you can see that even the strength of a Gladiator cannot defeat the Endurance door.

 

Armed with a sledgehammer and a reputation for taking on the fiercest competitors, Hunter set to work. First, they challenged him with a run-of-the-mill uPVC front door. As you can probably imagine, Hunter made light work of this style of door. The Gladiator smashed through the slab in seconds, which could be a real cause for concern to homeowners with a uPVC entrance.

 

Second on Hunter’s list of challengers was a GRP, foam filled composite door. Although this door style put up more of a fight than the uPVC contender, it was still no match for our Gladiator. In a few blows with his sledgehammer, the door slab had a substantial hole, meaning that it was certainly no longer secure. This poor performance goes to show that not all composite doors are equal.

 

Finally, the time came to put one of Endurance's own composite doors to the test. Despite the failures of the previous contenders, they still had total confidence in the Endurance door. They are thrilled to say that we were proven right. With its unique 48mm solid timber core, it’s really no surprise that even Hunter couldn’t beat the strength of an Endurance composite door.

 

After a heroic attempt at breaking down the Endurance door with his sledgehammer, even Hunter had to admit defeat. The door slab was barely dented, which is a remarkable contrast to the damage suffered by the uPVC and GRP alternatives.

 

If you were at all unsure whether Endurance doors live up to their reputation for security and strength, this video is sure to put your mind at ease.
