Behind that rather scientific-sounding name, you’ll find the latest technology and design in doors. And when you’re indoors you’ll enjoy loads of style, strength and security.
Lets get personal now. How your door looks is up to you. Like traditional-style or contemporary? You can choose from twenty styles in seven colours. Keep looking – we’ve got three finishes of door furniture and a beautiful range of glass too.
Our composite doors are tested to the very limit. Against extreme weather, extreme attach – and extremely over-enthusiastic visitors, And wannabe burglars are going to hate all those high tech security features.
Home and Dry
Shower…storms…drizzle…We hate to break it to you, but the average rainfall in the Uk is between 700mm a year in East Anglia and 3000mm a year in the Scottish Highlands*.
That’s a lot of potential for leaks, puddles or even worse.
But we’ve designed our doors to withstand even the heaviest downpour.
The doors are tested by the BSI by spraying six litres of water every minute at the door in their test chamber. That’s a serious amount of rain.
So even when it’s cats and dogs out there, your door will keep you snug and dry. Our doors are also tested in a pressurised chamber to simulate gusting winds. The test starts at 500 Pascal – 63 miles an hour. Then the BSI turn those gusts up to an equivalent of 80 miles an hour (800 Pascal). That’s stronger than a hurricane. Even in our in house test rig the door remained unchanged at simulated winds of over 100 miles an hour.
Water tightness: Tested in accordance with BSEN 1027: 2000
Air permeability: Tested in accordance with BSEN 1026: 2000
Wind resistance: Tested in accordance with BSEN 1211: 2000
