DOORS&WINDOWS Entrance doors setting the insulation standards With increased demand for better insulation and better security, Hörmann is setting new standards with the introduction of two new entrance doors for 2014. Set to feature prominently on Hörmann’s stand at this years FIT show, both the ThermoSafe and ThermoCarbon represent a new generation of high-insulation entrance doors, designed for low energy homes and housing developments. Impressive thermal and acoustic insulation plus high security, are key features of these aluminium entrance doors. The ThermoSafe features a 73mm thick door leaf with a rigid, CFC free, PU foam infill and an aluminium sub-frame with thermal break, which gives an excellent u-value as low as 0.8 W/m2K. Triple glazed panels with shatterproof safety glass, on the inside and outside, help maintain the high level of insulation when these options are chosen. For the ultimate in insulation, the ThermoCarbon door marries a reinforced carbon fibre subframe with solid PU foam in a 100mm thick door leaf, to produce an entrance door with a U-value of only 0.47 W/m2K. Quadruple glazed panels help to maintain this ground-breaking level. This door also comes with 9-point locking and hidden hinges as standard. These two new doors follow hot on the heels of the ThermoPro Plus steel faced entrance door, which with a Thermal U-value of only 1.0 W/m2K, is yet another high performance choice from the Hörmann range. This door has a 65mm thick steel door leaf, that utilises the same rigid foam infill for both strength and improved thermal performance. A composite frame adds to the thermal integrity of the doorset, since it offers an improved thermal break. All Hörmann entrance doors are highly secure, thanks to multipoint locking, conical swing bolts, security bolts and lock bolts that pull the doors tightly shut. From the entry level ThermoPro doors to the ThermoCarbon door, precision engineering delivers good looking doors that can meet all your requirements. Matching side elements and transom lights can also be selected to create the perfect entrance.
