Safestyle UK launch new composite door range
Safestyle are making a grand entrance to 2009! Our continuous endeavours to improve the technology and materials of our double glazing windows and doors have resulted in the latest range of brand new composite doors, the Safestyle GuardDoor!
The new composite door is the culmination of many developments in differing technologies and processes, but at the heart of its robust construction is a laminated timber sub-frame, stronger than single-piece timber, and a high-density energy-saving insulating core, that is almost as good as cavity wall insulation. This is skinned with high-impact, dyed-through Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) panels, incorporating patented ColourFusion™ technology, which ensures that the through-coloured surface is highly resistant to damage, wear and the elements. The edges of the door are stylishly protected by the EdgeGuard™ system.
Another interesting GuardDoor technology is FlushGlaze™, which is a unique glazing system without unsightly gaskets or vulnerable beading. This improves the appearance of your composite door as well as the important security aspect!
Tested and certified to British Standards PAS 23-1 and PAS 24-1, our GuardDoor has achieved the very highest security, performance and durability ratings possible for domestic doors. This makes for a virtually unparalleled door system which is not only incredibly durable and long-lasting, but with its strength and locking systems, it is an ideal product for the security conscious. All while retaining a beautiful appearance with a look of classic elegance and nobility.
The range itself consists of 12 doors, and all are available in 7 different colours: red, greed, blue, black, white and the wood effects of Oak and Rosewood, which are highly realistic. Eight of the doors – the Amersham, Canterbury, Cheltenham, Exeter, Gloucester, Oxford, Stratford and Windsor – all have glazing options, while the remaining four – the Aylesbury, Richmond, Warwick and Worcester – are fully solid doors without glass. Glazing options for the GuardDoor are quite wide and varied, with some doors having over 20 designs specifically created for them, ranging from textured obscure glass to coloured glass, bevels, fret and lead designs.
The improved energy saving aspects of the GuardDoor, with its highly thermally-efficient insulation core, make for an excellent package when coupled with Safestyle’s ‘Energy Saving Recommended’ Diamond Window, which saves 90% heat loss and helps reduce household energy bills. Imagine all the energy and money that could be saved, not to mention the reduced impact on the environment, if all the nation had Safestyle double glazing technology in their homes!
