Eurocell has introduced a new PVC-U low threshold for its Eurologik 70mm chamfered and ovolo doors, offering users an alternative to aluminium that will cut energy bills and improve comfort.
The UK’s leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U window, door, conservatory and roofline products has introduced this threshold as it is vastly superior to aluminium equivalents.
This reduces cold bridging and is more thermally efficient, all helping Eurocell in its efforts to continuously improve its systems.
Using the PVC-U low threshold can improve the U-value by varying amounts, depending on the style and specification of the door.
In other words, using the PVC-U threshold can increase the energy rating of a door by up to one energy band, surpassing the aluminium equivalent.
A further advantage of this threshold is that, as Eurocell designed it, it can be removed and replaced without taking away the whole door if damaged.
Fully tested to BS 6375 and PAS 24, both on residential and French doors, the threshold complies with Part M of the Building Regulations (Access to and use of Buildings.
These govern disabled access, when installed complete with a choice of specific ramps from the company.
