Sapa Building Systems has launched a new commercial STII door which will use polyamide thermal break technology to achieve U-values as low as 1.9W/m2k.
The Stormframe STII door will be fabricated by Gloucester-based manufacturer CDW Systems and will accommodate glazing up to 46mm, with a door size of up to 3 metres high and a profile depth of 65mm.
The door is available in dual colour and comes with an range of functional add-ons including an anti-finger trap.
Ideal for high traffic environments such as schools, healthcare and education, STII has also been tested to the PAS024 security standard which is widely specified across a number of sectors. This was of great benefit to CDW, as Technical Director Richard Smith explains:
“Sapa having carried out the initial type testing of STII with a full hardware offer is a huge benefit since we can be certified under the cascaded Sapa Kitemark scope, which means the initial investment is not required for CDW to add the product to our own scope.”
CDW Systems has manufactured Sapa Building System’s products for many years. The introduction of Sapa’s STII door has allowed CDW to ensure that customer needs are continuously met.
Mark Robinson, Technical Director at Sapa Building Systems explained:
“The relationship we have with CDW is very important to us particularly as it enables us to get important feedback, which helps with future product hardware and development options.
The positive comments we have had from the company on the STII door from both a quality and fabrication perspective are fantastic.”
