Description

The PURe® Fold door range is a suite of aluminium swing and folding doors with an innovative, enhanced thermal barrier manufactured from expanded polyurethane (PUR), allowing ultra-low U-values to be achieved.

Designed for maximum style and performance, the doors complement the PURe® window range and are fully compatible with all Senior windows and curtain walling.

The door is constructed using mitred corners, joined with mechanical cleats; alignment chevrons assist in clean, accurate mitres. A proprietary sealant is used on all metal joints in line with good practice.

Available pre-finished in an almost unlimited range of colours and finishes both inside and out, with a choice of configurations and sizes, All configurations have excellent weather performance and further thermal enhancement is available.
