    I am looking for a wooden entrance door of the kind of performance spec offered by green building store:

    or rationel:

    Both of these manufacture in northern europe. Are there any uk manufacturers making doors to a similar spec? I favour timber, but in terms of u values, should i ( in peoples' opinion) be thinking about steel and PUR, or whatever composite doors are made of? Is there such a thing as a timber door with foam core?

    Any decent joinery firm could make that for you. If you do go down the bespoke route specify laminated timber construction.

    I made my own door, turned out 105mm thick but nice low U value and strong

    Sadly they make the best gear. UK stuff is expensive but horrible. I bought mine from Albo (https://www.albo.cz) but it looks like they have given up on the UK market. Not much help I know :)
    The Sheffield-based bloke I used (with whose workmanship I am very happy indeed) will sadly not be manufacturing again till next summer. Message me if you want to keep his details for future ref.
