The Warmcore door is a brand new bifolding door marketed as latest generation “warm aluminium”. At the core of it’s design is an aluminium clad multi chamber and insulated core that is a departure from the traditional aluminium profiles of many bifolding door systems available.
The Warmcore Bifolding Door benefits from very good thermal performance that will exceed current and future Building Regulations. Changes in the Building Regulations have been known about for several years already with 2016 bringing yet more changes required to the overall Window Energy Ratings and U Values of windows.
Thanks to the way the Warmcore door is constructed the product is effectively “future proofed” against the upcoming changes in these Building Regulations.
The Warmcore door is an aesthetically pleasing product that is slim and suits direct fixing thanks to its 70mm front to back dimensions. There is a choice of external aluminium profiles available that include:
Warmcore bifolding doors feature a range of profile and bead options.
Square profile design for contemporary looking doors, Profiled framing or “Pencil Round” design, an ovolo profile that will suit those seeking a more traditional timber look product and a chamfered design to mimic putty line windows or doors.
Additionally, there are three types of glazing beads available that also alter the look of the product although not all beads can be used with any frame combination. The doors are internally beaded. Square glazing beads can be fitted all round the doors, chamfered glazing beads are possible on the vertical parts of the door leaf only. The flatline in appearance bead used for those that require a triple glazed Warmcore door is fitted all round.
Presently four standard colours are available for the internal and external aluminium profiles. These are standard White and Cream that will colour match existing Synseal Conservatory Roof Systems, Grey RAL 7016 that is one of the most popular grey colours offered and Black RAL 9005.
Should customers require single swing doors or French Doors to match the bifolding doors, we offer a suite of products enabling single action left or right hung, open in or open outdoors whether single or double leaves.
With the bifolding doors themselves maximum widths possible are 6000mm. Doors (including outer frames) can be manufactured at 2400mm high, with maximum sash widths of 1000mm. The maximum load per door sash is 100kg. Whilst these dimensions will be suitable for most residential applications, other aluminium systems utilising the traditional thermal break methods can be made wider and much taller than Warmcore..
