Eurocell has reconfigured its popular Dales Collection range of composite doors to increase and improve aesthetic choice, security and resilience.
The company has introduced three new panel designs – the Elton, Hartington and Newhaven – which deliver ‘on trend’ farmhouse and contemporary styles. The three designs are complemented by six further glass patterns to further increase choice.
The additional door and glass introductions bring the total of Dales Collection front and back composite door combinations to 15 styles in 15 colours and 18 glazing options.
The colours are in three groups: Contemporary, e.g. Anthracite Grey, Slate Grey and Moondust Grey; Standard, e.g. Rosewood, Golden Oak, Frost White and Berry Red; and Heritage, e.g. Eurocell Cream, Chartwell Green and Duck Egg Blue (all made to order). Dales Collection doors are also available with colour-matched weather bars.
With security and peace of mind very much on the agenda, not least following the introduction of Approved Document Q (AD Q) of the Building Regulations in October 2015, Eurocell has also improved both the structural stability of its door panels and its locking hardware.
A new accredited five-point multi-locking system with adjustable keeps has been introduced, providing an improved weather rating that can now achieve up to a massive 1200 Pascals – a 50% improvement on previous tests. The new design also includes an increase of the outer GRP skin thickness from 2mm to 4mm.
The collection is now also fitted with the Tri-Sis glazing cassette which can be deglazed internally without damaging the door panel or affecting the security performance of the door overall.
In terms of energy efficiency and sustainability, The Dales Collection composite doors range is ‘B’ rated as standard but ‘A’ rated is also available.
