The perfect partnership Gloucester based CDW Systems says it has fabricated Sapa Building System’s products for many years, so when Sapa introduced the Stormframe STII door, it was reportedly keen to ‘get on board’. The newest addition to CDW’s factory, the commercial STII door, is said to use advanced polyamide thermal break technology, allowing it to achieve ‘U’ values as low as 1.9W/m²k, with double-glazing 64 D O O R S & COMMERCIAL ENTRANCES ‘easily surpassing’ the requirements for high traffic doors of 3.5W/m²k. The door, which is available in dual colour, has an ‘extensive range’ of functional options including anti finger trap. The product is designed to use the standard hardware and door closer options to guarantee a consistent look and feel across the product range. It can also accommodate glazing up to 46mm with a door size of up to 3m high. The 65mm profile depth is also said to provide stronger overall construction making it suitable for high traffic areas. Richard Smith, technical director of CDW Systems, said: “Having fabricated the ST doors for some time, the transition over to the STII was very straightforward since no additional tools were required. In addition, the product’s fabrication is not labour or part intensive, which makes it very easy to work with for those in the factory. What’s more, as with all of Sapa’s products, we are extremely impressed with the quality and aesthetics offered by this system.” STII has also been successfully tested to the PAS024 security standard, which is widely specified across a number of sectors. For CDW, this was a key benefit. “To have Sapa undertake 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,” said Richard.
