For all the technical details
To truly understand the reason why a fiberglass door is perfect for most homes, the technicality of the product must be understood as well. An individual structural glass fiber is both stiff and strong in tension and compression —that is, along its axis. Although it might be assumed that the fiber is weak in compression, it is actually only the long aspect ratio of the fiber which makes it seem weak. Fiberglass is one of the strongest materials out there and definitely one of the best ones for structuring a perfect door. It is actually only the long aspect ratio of the fiber which makes it seem weak, since a typical fiber is long and narrow, it breaks easily. On the other hand, the glass fiber is weak across its axis. Therefore, if a collection of fibers can be arranged permanently in a preferred direction within a material, and if they can be prevented from breaking in compression, the material will be strong in that direction.
