Arguably the defining product of 2015 for the fenestration industry, we are delighted to introduce WarmCore technology into our portfolio.
Thanks to its innovative full width thermal core, this exciting new hybrid system gives you both aesthetics and performance – something which, until very recently, did not exist. Significantly out-performing the polyamide thermal breaks commonly used in aluminium windows and doors, the unique and precise composite construction results in a ‘warm aluminium’ frame, ensuring a superior and efficient thermal and recyclable performance – all while providing an optimised 70mm front-to-back overall sash frame depth, thanks to the multi-chambered insulating core. With a 44mm triple glazing choice which gives a 75% better performance than the standard 28mm double glazing, you can even reduce the whole door U-value rating from 1.4 to 1.0.
The high-grade aluminium outer-faces of the profile, corrosion-resistant fixings and 60-80 micron-thick powder finish all ensure that WarmCore doors will stand the test of time. Unlike traditional aluminium doors, which force you to choose look and finish over thermal performance, WarmCore comfortably meets the Building Regulations – enabling you to have a door that both looks and feels great.
From the rollers to the corner assemblies, handles to bespoke union mouldings for gaskets, WarmCore displays a hi-tech elegance of design that translates into unbeatable performance. Folding sliding door leaves are triple-sealed with contact weatherstrip gasket grooves to keep draughts at bay and provide all-year-round user comfort, whilst its unique five-point locking system , double-strength sash corners, multiple screw fixings and high-strength extruded aluminium hinges ensures maximum security, with added features, such as integral dog bolts, protecting against forced entry. Every WarmCore door is independently certified to PAS24:2012, whilst the optional laminate glass upgrade adds Secured by Design accreditation, too.
Available as casement or tilt and turn windows, and with a flush sash option, attention has even paid to the look of the window sashes when open, the result of which is a black full-width thermal core creating a neat appearance. WarmCore also uses a feature mullion, creating a precise bead line-in between the two windows, and is available in a range of different colours and bead options.
All WarmCore doors come with a 10-year ERA ‘Five Star’ guarantee against forced entry, for added peace of mind.
It’s no wonder that WarmCore is fast becoming the door of choice for both installer and homeowner alike.
