Designed from scratch starting with a clean sheet of paper, every single component has been concept sketched, detail designed, prototyped, tooled, trial installed and rigorously tested.
WarmCore is a high quality aluminium folding sliding door solution with peerless thermal performance that ensures end-user comfort, all year round.
Precision-manufactured with a high quality surface finish and affording slim sightlines when installed, aluminium has become the material of choice for premium folding sliding door applications. WarmCore doors utilise a composite of materials to ensure an end product that is energy efficienct and recyclable combined with the premium quality, structural integrity and architectural design elegance of aluminium to create a product perfect for both residential and commercial building applications.
From the rollers to the handles to the corner assemblies, WarmCore displays an elegance of design that translates into a high performance installed product that looks outstanding.
At the heart of WarmCore products is a thermal core which significantly out-performs the polyamide thermal breaks commonly used to reduce the threat of cold bridging on aluminium windows and doors. The result is an innovative “warm aluminium” frame construction, carefully dimensioned to provide an optimised 70mm front-to-back overall sash frame depth while ensuring market-leading thermal performance thanks to the multi-chambered insulating core.
Fully concealed multi-chambered cores substantially improve thermal performance when compared to thermally-broken aluminium doors:
U-value of 1.4 W/m2K with 28mm double glazing
U-value of 1.0 W/m2K with 44mm Triple glazing
WarmCore has been designed from the ground up to offer market leading thermal performance, protecting against future tightening of Building Regulations. Using standard double glazing the WarmCore folding sliding door achieves a U-value of 1.5, with U-values as low as 1.0 achievable using 44mm triple glazing. The advantage against traditional aluminium doors is clear, with many struggling to meet current legislation.
PAS24 and Secure By Design (SBD) compatibility as standard provides peace of mind for end users. WarmCore doors have been independently third party tested by a UKAS laboratory to prove impressive structural strength and security credentials.
