Composite door company, Solidor, has unveiled The Radlington, a new deep nose cill that is available in nine finishes complete with matching foiled end caps.
According to Solidor, the Radlington, which it claims is ‘perfect for the replacement door market’, is a ‘modern interpretation’ of a traditional timber cill, with similar dimensions, therefore offering a ‘traditional look’ for any new build project. According to Solidor, traditional timber cills were deep and usually aligned with a course of bricks which often varied in height, while metric bricks are generally 65mm high.
For these reasons, The Radlington has been designed and engineered at 55mm high, with a projection of 165mm, allowing for packing, expansion, baypole jacks and irregular mortar. The first installations have reportedly shown that it is far quicker to install on site and a more robust cill option than a standard 30mm high X 150mm projection cill, which, according to Solidor, is designed more with PVC-U windows in mind.
This new type of cill is available for the existing Solidor range in nine finishes including white, foiled white, cream, Chartwell green, Irish oak, golden oak, rosewood, grey, schwarzbraun black. There are also eight further finishes to match the colours of the latest Solidor/R9 composite door offering, with exclusive finishes such as silvered oak and Painswick.
Lee Williams, sales director of Solidor, commented: “The Radlington is a true replacement of the traditional timber cill, yet with modern engineered materials and structurally a great choice for a composite door installation. It’s a fundamental part of our strategy to offer our customers new and exciting products and The Radlington certainly fits the bill.”
