Eliminating a damaging issue

The Moisture Barrier System (MBS) from Endurance Doors dramatically improves long-term performance and eliminates the damaging issue of water ingress to the foot of a solid timber composite door, the company has reported.

Over the years this has reduced the number of call backs for Endurance Doors installers and is helping increase the amount of referral sales, the company said.

The MBS is a blown, recycled PVCU section that is extruded in house within the Rocal Group and has been designed to be bonded at the base of all of its timber composite doors, prior to edgebanding and the bonding of the PVCU CoolSkin.

Endurance Doors also wet glazes and tapes all glazing apertures, as part of a drive to make its solid timber composite door virtually water ingress free.

Stephen Nadin, managing director of Endurance Doors, said: “Given our history in solid core composite doors dating back to 2002, we know about the potential for water ingress into a composite door. Back in 2015 we developed the unique MBS and, consequently, the number of customer concerns plummeted overnight. Our solid timber composite door now also benefits from a wet glaze and the taping of all glazing apertures, as we look to make our door technically the best in the sector.”
