Kawneer has launched an entrance door that not only offers class-leading thermal performance, but is so robust it comes with a lifetime guarantee.
The AA®190 TB door, from the leading UK manufacturer of architectural glazing systems, features welded corner construction, which is the strongest aluminium door construction available, with each corner having four separate weld points, each of which has a ‘lifetime guarantee’.
The doors have already been specified by architects Foster + Partners at Central Square in Cardiff, including on BBC Cymru’s HQ.
Rigorous testing has proven its incredible strength and durability, meaning it is suitable for use in severe-duty applications, as defined in BS 6375-2: 2009.
An all-purpose door for use in high-traffic areas and automatic entrances, it is suitable for both internal and external applications, refurbishment and new-build, and for all sectors, particularly education, healthcare, commercial, and leisure and retail.
The door is designed to accept glass units up to 43mm thick, with a maximum leaf weight of 120kg, with an overhead closer and a maximum of 200kg using the floor closer, all with leaf sizes up to 1320mm wide and 3000mm high.
As well as its impressive strength and robust properties, the AA®190 TB door also provides improved thermal performance.
Child-friendly reassurance comes courtesy of a finger guard pivot stile as standard, which safeguards against injury to fingers that might be accidentally caught between the hinge stile and frame.
Independently tested to PAS 24: 2016 for the enhanced security performance of single and double-leaf external doors, the enhanced security is available for both pivot and butt hung doors which can feature panic hardware.
A range of multi-point lock options provides security solutions for all applications, including panic doors and electronic access control.
For ultimate design flexibility, the AA®190 TB door comes as single-leaf and double-leaf in open-in, open-out and dual-action swing doors, suitable for automatic powered operation.
In addition, the AA®190 TB door can be used with automatic sliding or bi-parting entrance systems.
All door options are available in a wide range of single or dual-colour finishes.
The AA®190 TB door is extruded and thermal breaks are added before painting and in-house fabrication at Kawneer’s Runcorn factory.
