KJM are proud to announce the addition to our product range…The Veka Infinity recycled profile system.
Plastic waste has become a global concern. According to data released in 2020, nearly four hundred million tons of it are produced globally every year, while 79% of all plastic waste ever produced has ended up in landfills or as litter in natural environments, not data that should make any of us happy. The 21st century has led to innovations in recycling, because of this PVCu windows and doors can now be labelled as the first choice for sustainability too. This is because you can recycle and re-use ‘end of life PVCu’ and put it back into our new products, so minimal material ends up as waste in landfill. Millions of window and door frames are now recycled every year and KJM can boast that every uPVC frame we remove will not end up in landfill.

Xtreme Composite Door FAQ’s
Can my Xtreme door be specified Secure by Design?
Yes it can, Secured by Design (SBD) is a police initiative put in place to reduce burglary and crime in the UK by designing out crime through physical security and processes. There are some items that need upgrading from the standard door offering. These items include a door safety chain, laminate glass, a viewer, so you can see who is on the other side before answering the door and finally an upgraded letter box that stops ‘fishing’. Fishing is a common method of attack whereby items such as keys are removed from the home via the letter-plate. It is basically an inner flap that prevents access to the area around the inside of the door. The lock and cylinder meet the SBD standards and don’t need upgrading.
How much are composite front doors?
Composite doors have been around for decades, they were initially very expensive. Today composite doors come with foam filled cores, engineered timber cores and aluminium faced doors. They do all vary in cost, a typical foam filled core with glass would average around £1100-£1200, fitted and including VAT. Other variables that will add a reasonable amount to the cost of the doors include decorative glass units, sometimes even triple glazed and high end stainless steel bar handles and letter boxes.
What colours can I order my Xtreme door in?
You can order your Xtreme composite door in one of the seven standard range of colours, these include White, Red, Green, Blue, Black, Light Oak and Rosewood. Premium colours are available for a small surcharge and include Cream, Chartwell Green, Duck Egg Blue, French Blue, Royal Magenta, Anthracite, Slate and Moondust Grey.

There is the option to colour both sides of the door as well, the standard offering is for the internal face of the door to be white.
Are Xtreme doors thermally efficient?
An Xtreme front door is more thermally efficient thanks to a combination of a high insulating foam core and PVCu edge-banding. It is an easy way to make your home warmer and help cut down on your energy consumption. Xtreme doors are better at six time better insulating than timber.
