See The Engineering Behind GripCore Technology

A range of Gripcore Firedoors

Doorco’s announcement that it is launching a new solid core composite door product has been backed up with a new video demonstrating the engineering behind the  technology.

According to Doorco the product has demonstrated safety and impressive results in tolerance and security.


 “GripCore  technology is a hybrid of modern and traditional materials and has been engineered to deliver a stronger, heavier and more robust door that will not crack, move or de-laminate.”

– Dan Sullivan 

MD, Doorco



"The structure consists of a matrix of cross laminated engineered timber and hardwood stiles and rails, pressed with Doorco’s signature 4mm GRP skins," continues Sullivan. "All of this results in a door that will not move/bow/twist more than 3mm. These are strong claims, but it is truly the most engineered door I have ever seen. As well as offering a 10 year warranty on all GripCore  doors, we felt it was important to demonstrate the engineering behind the door – and what better way than with a video showing exactly how it’s made."



Sullivan adds: “The new video is just one part of Doorco’s new marketing suite which is designed to really help customers sell GripCore  technology as the premium upgrade to our foam-filled standard doors. From April, it will be available in our six most popular doors which are used to create a wide range of designs: 4 panel blank top and 6/4 combi for traditional door styles, farmhouse for popular cottage doors and Flush, Monza II and Links for more contemporary options. We’re also adding some new door styles created specifically for GripCore  as well as bespoke colours and an expanded glass range, which now includes some bespoke designs from our creative consultant, Jeyda.

“We are very excited about GripCore ’s potential. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, Doorco is driven by innovating products and solutions that stand out from the crowd. GripCore is testament to this and we anticipate it being a real game-changer, not just for Doorco and our customers but the wider composite door market too."

Doorco doors engineered with GripCore  technology will be available from April.
