Slab only service

solidorSolidor has expanded its slab only offering for fabricators and door manufacturers, with a complete range of door designs, 17 through colours inside and out, ODL TriSYS cassettes, glazing, hardware and accessories all delivered nationwide in three to five days.

,The company believes its latest expanded offering will further entice manufacturers to make the change to a composite door slab that’s produced in the UK with a solid, hardwood core.

,All the doors are finished off with an exterior window grade foil finish that, according to Solidor, is ‘a perfect match for nearly all standard PVC-U door profiles’.

,The Solidor slab is reportedly 10% thicker than the ‘standard’ imported slabs from the Far East and is said to be ‘perfectly suited’ to a standard door outer frame from the likes of Kömmerling, Deceuninck, Rehau, Spectus, Swish, Synseal, Veka and many other leading systems in the UK.

,Solidor claims that it is of huge benefit for fabricators to be able to use a standard door outer frame. This means there is no issue of additional stockholding for a dedicated composite door frame in white, plus all of the colour options.

,The door slabs have been recently re-engineered to offer better levels of energy efficiency with some slabs achieving a ‘U’ value of just 1.3 W/m2K, while the 62mm door slab can achieve the Passivhaus standard of 0.8 W/m2K. Solidor has achieved this with the help of IFT Rosenheim in Germany and Build Check in the UK.

,The latest CNC equipment at Solidor’s production facility allows for the routing for any combination of lock, handle and hinge, while all the door slabs are edgebanded for extended performance as standard, and have been fully tested in the UK and Germany for security and thermal performance. Solidor carries ISO 9001:2008, while its products are covered by the BSI Kitemark for enhanced security, PAS 23-24 and have Secured by Design accreditation. They are CE marked and carry a comprehensive 10-year warranty.

,Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group, commented: “Our slab only offering is a complete one-stop shop for all composite door manufacturers. We believe our numerous product features, UK manufacturing flexibility and support is a better option, as the market continues to demand a better composite door.”
