Kent based aluminium door supplier, Dutemänn, recently opened the doors of its new 16,000ft2 premises, to reveal its latest door innovations.
New products unveiled at the open day event included Dutemänn Haus Tür, a fully bonded, contemporary aluminium residential door.
An upgrade of the popular Dutemänn Haus range, launched in 2013, Tür is aimed largely at the renovation market and is said to offer ‘exceptionally high’ security standards, as well as durability and energy efficiency.
Available in a choice of powdercoated finishes, Tür has a face thickness of 3mm, with grooves cut in for a ‘crisp finish’. Glazed options include satin glass and side and top lights are available, beaded to suit double or triple glazing. Aimed at residential properties, Tür is described as ‘maintenance free’ and can also be used for commercial applications.
Also on display was the Dutemänn Glide-S, which has superseded the original Dutemänn Glide sliding door and offers a ‘robust’ frame, supported by ultra-slim profile, accented with contemporary hardware to offer unobstructed views.
With fully weathered thresholds and thermal efficiency achieved through a choice of double or triple glazing, the Glide-S is available with 47mm or 94mm mullions as a mono, double or triple track option, bead glazed with a 28mm low threshold. A unique sliding mechanism lifts the sash (up to 400kgs per panel) to deliver ‘smooth, effortless’ operation.
In addition, a ‘pocket’ version of the Glide-S, which slides neatly into the wall cavity to create more space, is also available. Aimed primarily at the new build sector, where architects can design the door into a project, the fully weathered Glide-S Pocket incorporates multipoint locking and can achieve up to 90% clear opening.
As well as the opportunity to see Dutemänn Haus Tür and the Glide-S, the open day also offered a demonstration of Dutemänn’s cornerless bi-folding door, which will be displayed on the company’s stand at the FIT Show next year, along with another new product, set to be unveiled at the show.
Guests were also treated to a tour of the new 16,000ft2 factory, located in Northfleet, as well as a delicious fish and chip lunch.
