All Doors ‘INTELLIGENT-TIMBER’ COMPOSITE DOOR » » SLIDERS UK HAS launched its new PAS24 and Part Q approved ‘intelligent timber’ Ultimate Composite Door. Among the UK’s most secure doors, it’s manufactured using the new Capstone leaf which features 15mm thick LVL timber inserts. Intelligently encased inside a foam core and durable GRP skin, these provide additional core strength without impacting on thermal efficiency. This combination means that it not only achieves U-values of as low as 1.0Wm2.K, but has also been independently tested to PAS24:2016 - including cut- through testing. Security is further enhanced through Capstone’s patented three stage glazing cassette system, which supports easy replacement of glass but maximizes security. This technically advanced combination of timber inserts and thermally insulating foam also significantly reduces bowing, which means that the Ultimate Composite Door is supplied by Sliders UK with just a 3mm bowing tolerance. Door furniture and hardware is Trojan, while standard hinges and locks are manufactured by Ingenious, with heritage and auto-locking options from Winkhaus. Door cylinders are six-pin anti-drill and pick as standard with the UKAS accredited 3-star BSI TS007 tested Ingenious cylinder, also available as an upgrade option. Glass options include a choice of double or triple-glazed options, achieving U-Values as low as 1.0Wm2.K including laminated and toughened options. Available in lead times of 5-days or less, standard colours are black, red, blue, green, Gold Oak and Rosewood, while a range of premium finishes are also available. This is combined with a choice of standard or colour matched, fully reinforced Duraflex and Eurocell 70mm PVC-U outer frames and slim, low line aluminium thresholds with twin seals. Both Duraflex and Eurocell framed doors have been tested to PAS24:2016. Palmer suggests that composite doors now account for 50% of the entrance door market, the share rising to 54% by installed value with the inclusion of PVC/ABS faced doors. The Market for Domestic Entrance Doors 2017 edition also forecasts a 22% increase in composite door sales through to 2020. C L E A RV I E W-U K . C O M » M AY 2018 » 59
