Why dFendor?

  • Impact Resistant. In-house testing has shown that dFendor doorsets can prolong the longevity of the door face over x40 times compared to standard doorsets.
  • Aiding Infection Control. Resistant to over 200 cleaning chemicals, easy to clean and will not deteriorate with cleaning routines.
  • Fire Compliance. All our doorsets are put though burn to death test in certified laboratories by third-party industry recognised assessors
  • Lowered Maintenance costs. Many Doorsets will be in need of constant repair, with our dFendor Doorsets this will continue to perform at 100% throughout its life, with no need for spot repairs or quick touch-ups.
  • Permanent Colouring. dFendor is a solid core product so whilst not only a resilient product is also a solid colour core so does not change or fade at all in usage.
