Rationel FORMAPLUS® Doors
Description

A range of energy efficient, solid timber doors with an external aluminium cladding, ensuring minimum maintenance. The cladding adds to the protection against wind and weather. Rationel FORMAPLUS® is slim and traditional and is suitable for new-build or refurbishment projects. The angled glazing bead and ovolo-moulded profile make it a suitable choice for country-style and traditional designs. The slim and well-insulated construction makes it possible to let in more solar heat during winter than it lets out, resulting in a much lower heating bill and significant CO2 savings.

Rationel FORMAPLUS® is available in many different opening functions and designs and the product range is available in a wide range of RAL colours and selection of energy efficient panes, depending on the desired function of the doors. The door includes security ironmongery as standard.

Standard product features

Material:

- Timber:

The timber used in the manufacture is supplied from FSC-certified North European coniferous trees from selected sawmills with sustainable forest management. The proportion of heartwood is at least 60% for exterior rebates and surfaces. In general, knots and small cracks are cut off and the wood finger-jointed. However, minor knots will be permitted. All softwood sections are laminated and their edges rounded.

The surface treatment uses the System 2 Eco, which involves:

  • Impregnation in a flow coat system.
  • Primed with a flow coat system.
  • Topcoat with a water-based paint, gloss 20.

- Aluminium:

  • Since the external aluminium cladding functions solely as a climate envelope, it does not form part of the sealing face. The cladding is attached using plastic clips to ensure the necessary draining and ventilation of the wood components.
  • The aluminium alloy must be EN AW-6060 or EN AW-6063 in accordance with EN 755-2.
  • Aluminium glazing beads are polyester powder-coated to a coating thickness of 60-120 microns, standard gloss 30.

Threshold:

Rationel HELO.

Weather strips:

All windows are constructed with two sealing faces. The weather strips are grey EPDM and are fitted in a groove in the sash in the same face.

Glazing:

  • Double and triple-glazed units, respectively, are manufactured with 32 mm and 52 mm insulated glazing and covered by the glass supplier's standard five-year guarantee.
  • All the glazing units are safety sealed.
  • All panes are approved to BS EN 1279 and have a warm-edge spacer.

Glazing gaskets:

Glazing gaskets are manufactured from a grey thermoplastic (PVC-free) material that does not rub off when washed. The removable gasket must be fitted in a groove in the sash.

Ironmongery:

  • The adjustable hinges are coated using grey zinc dust. Each hinge is fitted with a through bolt and a pronged tee nut on the back of the frame. Hinges and ironmongery, including a receiver which forms part of the door's burglary protection, are fitted with angled screws for increased strength and protection.
  • The espagnolette has a minimum of three locking points, including fixation points in each corner. The opening sash is fitted with a handle-controlled friction brake with a maximum opening of approximately 90°.
  • A sash lifter is fitted to the door.

Product Options

Type:

- Entrance door:

Inward or outward opening door constructed with a frame and sash which can include glazing bars and/ or transoms and mullions. The areas created can be infilled with either glass or a composite insulated panel. Doors are side-hinged with visible and adjustable grey Dacromet hinges. The doors are fitted with a three-point espagnolette locking system and lockbox with latch & deadbolt.

- Panelled door:

Available as either inward or outward opening and can be manufactured with a wide range of patterns and vision panels. It is fitted on a timber sash with timber-ply and an aluminium stabilizer on each side and insulating material in-between. 80 mm thick door plate constructed on a wood frame with aluminium plates on both sides and insulated between. Plates are covered with timber faced plywood and have a surface-treated finish. 150 mm aluminium kick plates included both internally and externally. The doors are hung on grey Dacromet adjustable hinges and fitted with a three-point locking espagnolette and lockbox with latch and deadbolt.

- Window door:

The window door is outward-opening only and is ideal for access to balconies, gardens and patios. The slim construction allows a maximum of daylight and heat into the house without compromising on functionality, security and comfort. It has the same proportions as a side-hung window, with the only visual difference from the outside being a threshold instead of a window sill. It is operated with an espagnolette handle which activates three locking points. The door opens up to 90° and is fitted with a handle-operated friction brake that allows the door to be kept open in any arbitrary position.
