Distinction Doors was the first company to introduce the composite slab to the UK market and today, with over 2 million units sold, it’s the UK market leader in composite doors. Distinction’s standing in the market is thanks to the pedigree of the Nan Ya slab that it has always used. The product has been in the UK market since 2000 and a process of continual development means its qualities remain at the cutting edge.
The first thing that many people notice about the Nan Ya slab is its stunning aesthetics. The timber grain effect is based on oak graining, giving it a beautifully authentic appearance. The matching grained glazing cassette has slim and shallow sightlines to maximise light transmission and complements the elegant depression mouldings on the fielded panel areas to improve kerb appeal. The slab is available in a wide range of colours and styles so homeowners can personalise their choice. What’s more, the high impact resistant GRP skin ensures protection against everyday knocks and scratches; combined with low maintenance requirements, the door can be relied on to keep its pristine looks.
The slab’s good looks are backed up with some impressive performance benefits.
It’s the most thermally efficient door on the market – in tests at the University of Salford’s Energy House it was proved to be 19% more thermally efficient than its rival 48mm solid timber core composite door. The unrivalled thermal efficiency is thanks to the Nan Ya slab’s CFC-free PU foam core technology, which has the added advantage of being an environmentally responsible material.
It also offers unparalleled security. The Nan Ya slab has met the rigours of the UK national security standard time and time again and video evidence proves that it can withstand even an attack from a police-issue battering ram.
The weatherproofing is also exceptional. The slab has water resistant polymer composite rails around the perimeter, protecting the core. This means that, unlike other composite products, no timber is exposed, so it will not suffer from water absorption that eventually leads to skin delamination and functional issues.
The manufacturer’s confidence in the quality of slab is reflected in the structural and surface manufacturer warranties that Nan Ya, one of the largest plastics companies in the world, provides.
In short, the Nan Ya composite slab from Distinction Doors is an exceptional product that has been adding value to UK homes since 2000. And two million slabs sold to date demonstrate the market recognises the quality it offers.
