Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answers to a selection of FAQs here. If you have something else to ask us, contact our Essex team today via our online form.

Are Gerda doors better than composite doors?

Absolutely. Composite doors often feature antiquated materials like uPVC or timber. Gerda entrance doors are made from metals, which don’t warp, rot or distort. Your homeowners get a higher quality door at a similar price point. Step into the future with Gerda and Pioneer and forget the composite door.

They do not. Gerda manufacture all their hardware in-house, knowing they can trust the experience that comes from their decades of innovative engineering. Handles and hardware are all produced by Gerda themselves, without fail.

An added benefit of this is greatly reduced air miles in the manufacturing process. Rather than having handles and hardware shipped over from China, everything is instead produced here in Europe.

We do not. These doors, their handles and hardware are all installed by our network of trade partners. Based in Essex, we work with carefully selected installers situated right across the country.

If you’re a homeowner looking to have a Gerda entrance door fitted to your home with these leading handles and hardware, use our online tool today to find your nearest stockist.

For the performance homeowners get, Gerda entrance doors are incredibly cost effective. With all their high quality handles and hardware, they perform categorically better than composite doors at a comparative price point.

We bring over 35 years of experience in the industry to our work with Gerda. You can rely on our personal customer service and ability to supply with these entrance doors.

All of Gerda’s doors are excellent, but they are ordered in a fashion that allows them to outperform the entrance doors at each similar price point. The OPTIMA is the entry level door, the ALTUS the best. In middle you have the THERMO PREMIUM and THERMO PRIME.

All come with the same incredible standard of handles and hardware.
