One of the UK’s largest and longest established fabricators, Wellingborough based Astraseal, has launched the new, innovative WarmCore folding sliding door system from Synseal, adding this to its already extensive portfolio of products designed to help installers take advantage of profitable industry trends.
Sales and marketing manager Zac Nedimovic discusses the product launch: “WarmCore is a viable alternative to aluminium, and we launched the product in order to help our trade customers win new business in markets where aluminium is a popular material. We’re offering WarmCore on quick lead times, with no additional charges or lead times for dual colour options, meaning our customers can stick to tight installation deadlines. The response so far has been very positive and we look forward to helping more installers take advantage.”
The WarmCore door is available in residential, French and bi-fold door options and a choice of four external cladding styles – Pencil Round, Chamfered, Square and Decorative. At the heart of WarmCore products is a thermal core which significantly out-performs the polyamide thermal breaks commonly used in aluminium systems.
“The door can achieve a U-Value of just 1.0 W/m2K, compared to 1.8 W/m2K on an aluminium door” Zac explains.
The size of the door is another key benefit. Folding sliding doors can measure up to six metres wide, meaning they can be partnered with wide span conservatory an orangery roofs, which Astraseal will colour code in either white, cream, black or grey to match.
The door is packed with innovative features such as double-strength sash corners and custom-engineered extruded aluminium hinges for additional security; clip-fit hinges for easy on-site installation and a triple sealed weatherstrip to eliminate draughts and ensure optimum weather tightness.
Warm Core joins Astraseal’s already comprehensive product range that includes the full range of windows and doors available from REHAU, Smarts and Reynaers; composite doors set in a REHAU outerframe and Synseal Global conservatory roofs. Astraseal produces all IGU’s in-house and can colour coat frames in any RAL colour.
“Warm Core is the perfect ‘half way house’ between our PVC-u and aluminium product range and I welcome any companies that wish to speak to me and learn more about this innovative system” Zac concluded.
