Glazing:

- Glass panels:

22–40 mm glass look-a-like panels incorporating two panes of minimum 6 mm- thick glass, with a 16 mm argon gas filled cavity and ceramic painted internal face with foil backed insulation to achieve a maximum 0.35 W/m²K centre pane. Exposed internal faces of insulation incorporate an internal polyester powder coated aluminium tray backing.

- Glazing:

22–40 mm insulating glass units incorporating a clear low emissivity inner pane and a clear outer pane with an argon gas filled cavity and 'warm edge' spacer bar to achieve a maximum centre pane U-value of 1.0 W/m²K. All glass within 800 mm from FFL should be toughened or laminated (within 1500 mm from FFL if within 300 mm of a door).

- Infill panels:

22–40 mm insulated sandwich panels incorporating two sheets of a minimum 2 mm- thick polyester powder coated aluminium sheet to match framing and minimum 24 mm non-combustible foam insulation core.

Finish:

  • A variety of powder coated colours are available in accordance with BS 6496 and BS EN 12206-1:2004. Powder coating is applied to a Qualicoat standard, utilizing an inline flash anodizing pre-treatment process, with the polyester powder coating applied within 30 minutes of the flash anodizing process to ensure suitable adhesion.
  • Doors can be dual coloured, textured or have an anodized finish.

Ironmongery:

High security hinges and locking mechanisms as standard with shootbolts top and bottom of the interlocks for enhanced security. Full range of suited hardware available.
