Faster to fit

The Alumina range of bifolding doors, flush fit French doors and residential doors from Liniar is now even faster to fit, thanks to a fully matching optional PVCU bead.

Alumina doors span up to 2.5m high, offering wide expanses of glass and slim sightlines in hundreds of warm touch foil finishes or three RAL powder-coated finishes, available on the interior and exterior of the door.

The foiled finishes could be supplied with PVCU beading, making them faster to fit as well as enhancing thermal efficiency, the company said. Previously, RAL powder-coated versions of Alumina were supplied with aluminium beading due to the potential colour shade difference between the powder coating and the PVCU bead.

The Liniar bead can now be supplied ready painted with bonding colour, with the same 10-year guarantee.

The co-extruded bubble gasket included in Liniar’s PVCU beading means that, unlike an aluminium bead, installers don’t have to install the gasket separately. This is weatherproof and provides an additional level of thermal efficiency when compared to the aluminium bead, the company said. It also means no visible wedge gaskets, providing a sleek finish.

The bonding process also ensures painted surfaces are less likely to suffer damage than aluminium beading when fitting glazing units, and run-through mitres create a cleaner appearance and slicker joints in the corners.
