It goes without saying that trade doors often face heavy usage compared to their non-trade counterparts. This means that they must be made from materials that can withstand constant opening, closing, and potential impacts such as increased footfall within a building or office environment. High-quality materials like steel, fiberglass, or solid wood are much more durable and resistant to wear and tear over time compared to cheaper alternatives which makes them the materials of choice when it comes to trade doors.


Trade doors are a crucial aspect of securing the property in which they are installed. Quality materials provide a far better resistance against forced entry from any potential intruder, increasing the overall security of the premises as well as providing peace of mind for personnel working inside. For instance, solid wood or steel doors are much harder to breach than hollow-core or low-grade alternatives.


Quality materials contribute to better insulation all round, helping to maintain optimal temperatures inside a building, particularly during colder months of the year. This is essential for energy efficiency and cost savings, especially in commercial or industrial settings where heating and cooling expenses can be significant.

Aesthetic Appeal

Trade doors often serve as the first impression of a business or establishment so they must look good and set a truly professional scene for both personnel and potential customers. Quality materials not only enhance the visual appeal but also convey a sense of professionalism and reliability. This can be crucial for businesses looking to attract customers or clients.

Long-Term Value

Making the initial investment in trade doors made from quality materials may typically require a higher upfront cost, but it pays off in the long run. So, we would advise that, if budgets allow, always opt for the quality material option/quote and you will be better off in the long-term – pay cheap, buy twice is a phrase you should consider! Doors made from quality materials will typically have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance, saving you valuable money on repairs and replacements over time.

Regulatory Compliance

In many industries, there is a wide variety of regulations and standards that govern the materials used in building construction, including doors. Using quality materials ensures compliance with these regulations, avoiding potential fines or legal issues.

To sum up

In summary, quality materials are absolutely essential for trade doors because they provide durability, security, insulation, aesthetic appeal, long-term value, and regulatory compliance. Investing in high-quality doors is a wise decision for businesses looking to prioritize safety, efficiency, and professionalism.
