Next generation

Distinction has announced that its next generation of composite door is available.

Chantel Roach, sales and marketing director at Distinction Doors said: “Our nxt-gen system takes everything that is great about the market-leading Distinction door and moves it to the next level. Quite simply, it sets a new standard in composite door design.”

Distinction said nxt-gen doors are quicker to fabricate: machining time is cut by an average of two minutes across all six door designs and glazing time is cut too. There are also cost savings because waste disposal costs are reduced.

The company said these benefits are thanks to the three pre-apertured trimmable sizes, the consistent letterplate positioning across all six styles, the integral preformed glazing system that accepts IGUs of 24mm-26.8mm, the one piece internal glass retention bead that sits within the door, the ease of deglazing, and the fact that the system uses the same glass sizes as the existing Nan Ya cassette system.

The insulated foam core delivers exceptional thermal performance and the acoustic performance has a weighted reduction of 31 decibels. The risk of water ingress has been reduced by 50%, and nxt-gen doors are PAS24:2016 compliant as standard.

“We worked in partnership with Nan Ya to take the benefits of the composite door further than ever before. All the feedback we’ve had so far is that we’ve achieved that and more,” Chantel said.
