Reynaers achieves triple PAS 24
Reynaers Concept Patio 130, HiFinity lift and slide and MasterPatio systems have achieved PAS24 certification.
ConceptPatio 130, which is Part L compliant, is the group’s most popular lift and slide door system. HiFinity is the group’s high-end option. With ultra-slim profiles it can be fabricated to a height of over 4m and can achieve a U-value as low as 1.0W/mK².
MasterPatio is a high-performance door system that offers superior insulation and recycled components, which makes it an ideal sustainability upgrade. This system can achieve a U-value as low as 0.82W/mK² and is just one of nine Reynaers systems that are Cradle-to-Cradle certified.
The plan, in line with Reynaers Act – the group’s sustainability strategy – is to have a further nine systems Cradle-to-Cradle certified by 2024.
The company says it continues to develop its products even after they have been successfully launched and that the slimline nature of the products and the demand for concealed components means building in additional functionality and security measures poses a challenge.
According to John McComb, technical services director at Reynaers, the product development team thrive on such challenges, even designing components from scratch where needed.
He said: “We are not a company that stands still, instead we have dedicated teams that constantly work to enhance and upgrade our products, continually moving the capability forwards.
“Ultimately the reason for this is to meet and exceed the expectations of customers, to make sure they have a product that does exactly what they want.
He added: “Achieving high levels of security without compromising on the aesthetic means that components need to be specifically designed, especially in ultra slim contemporary glazing where the locking system is concealed.
“With different products available within the same range, where a certain level of security has been specified, it is always advisable to check with a member of our technical team that your chosen product specification is PAS 24 compliant.”
