WARMCORE FOLDING SLIDING DOORS
Built around a belief that beauty doesn’t have to compromise performance, WarmCore aluminium folding sliding doors were created out of a desire to combine the desirability and durability of aluminium with unparallelled insulation. The orange thermal core – hidden away in the finished doors – is key to why WarmCore doors are 25% more thermally efficient than traditional aluminium systems.
Built WITH A REVOLUTIONARY thermal core at its heart!
Strong and secure, WarmCore doors come with class leading security built in, backed by a comprehensive 10 year product guarantee, reinforced by the ERA Five Star security guarantee. Inwards or outwards opening doors up to 6m wide, with as many as 7 opening sashes glide along custom designed tracks. While a wealth of colour, style and configuration options help you choose the perfect warm, secure and beautiful WarmCore door for your home. DOWNLOAD BROCHURE HERE.
The traditional weakness of aluminium doors has been the aluminium itself. While a beautifully strong and hard-wearing material, aluminium is a good conductor of energy. Meaning that the warmth from your home finds an easy path outside, leaving you colder and with higher heating bills. Most aluminium folding sliding doors try to overcome this inherent weakness by replacing a section of aluminium with a small thermal break of less conductive material to lessen this heat loss.
WarmCore took a different approach, from inception this revolutionary folding sliding door was designed to be as thermally efficient as possible. Built around a full width thermal core – maximising the use of low conductive material – WarmCore is 25% more efficient at keeping heat in your home than traditional aluminium doors. Yet it doesn’t compromise strength as the outer faces of the profile are high grade aluminium, positioned to add the greatest structural rigidity.
Superior Thermal Performance
At the heart of WarmCore products is a thermal core which significantly out-performs the polyamide thermal breaks commonly used to reduce the threat of cold bridging on aluminium windows and doors. The result is an innovative “warm aluminium” frame construction, carefully dimensioned to provide an optimised 70mm front-to-back overall sash frame depth while ensuring market-leading thermal performance thanks to the multi-chambered insulating core.
WarmCore has been designed from the ground up to offer market-leading thermal performance, and comfortably meets the requirements of Building Regulations – Part L. Traditional aluminium doors struggle to meet current legislation, forcing you to choose aluminium aesthetics and finish over thermal performance. WarmCore gives you both, with its innovative full width thermal core.
This unique composite construction creates the most thermally efficient folding sliding door in its class. This design philosophy has produced a folding sliding door that has exceptional thermal performance, helping keep fuel bills lower and heat in your home, while retaining the sleek and architectural look of aluminium.
- Folding sliding door leaves are triple-sealed with contact weatherstrip gaskets to eradicate draughts and ensure excellent weathertightness
- Best-in-class weathertightness for all-year-round user comfort
- Gasket corner mouldings for sash-to-frame and sash-to-sash applications use a push-fit design to neatly and positively couple with straight-cut gasket lengths for easy application, whilst avoiding any need to overrun gaskets to fill gaps between sashes
