The strength of Distinction Door’s position as the UK market leader in composite doors was recently reinforced when its Nan Ya doorset was proved to be the most thermally efficient composite door on the market. Chantel Roach, Distinction’s Marketing Manager, said, “The thermal performance of a door is always important to homeowners, especially with energy bills on the rise. We’re delighted that our door has proved its quality in this area, as in many others.”
The thermal efficiency of the Nan Ya slab was proved in tests at the University of Salford’s Energy House. The tests showed that the Nan Ya 44.5mm slab was 19% more thermally efficient than a 48mm solid timber core composite door and 17% more thermally efficient than a 44mm traditional timber panelled door.
The reason for the dramatic difference in thermal efficiency is thanks to the Nan Ya slab’s high performance insulated core, which is made up of a high density CFC-free PV foam. The foam is environmentally friendly with a Global Warming Potential of less than five and an Ozone Depletion Score of zero, making it all the more attractive to environment-conscious homeowners.
The door is proven to the BS 6375-1 classification for weather tightness, air, wind and water and, once installed, far exceeds the requirements of Approved Document L of the Building Regulations.
As Chantel says, the market-leading thermal efficiency is a vital selling point for homeowners. Combined with stunning aesthetics, a huge range of design, colour and triple glazed glass options plus excellent security as standard, the Nan Ya GRP composite door slab from Distinction Doors is a competition-beating product.
Chantel concludes, “We were the first company to introduce GRP composite doors to the UK market and we’re the UK’s biggest supplier. The biggest reason for that is the unbeatable Nan Ya slab. We are proud to supply it and we know our customers value what it has to offer them.”
