PAS24 on 3m-tall door
The Decalu88 bifold from Deceuninck Aluminium has successfully completed PAS24 testing on a 3m tall door.
Put through its paces by testing house Elements and accredited by BM Trada, testing was completed in June, with two configurations of the Decalu88 passing at the first attempt.
Nigel Headford, director at Deceuninck Aluminium, said: “The Decalu88 bifold is a proven system. PAS24 gives us the additional approval in newbuild applications.
“What for me is the really exciting achievement is how we went through testing, with first time passes on two 3m-high doors representing a very real achievement and evidence of how highly engineered this product is.”
Launched at the beginning of 2020, the Decalu88 bifold is easy to install, the company said. This includes glazing of each sash in as little as five minutes, and the use of a co-extruded pre-inserted gasket, and two fully adjustable jambs, each offering up to 7mm tolerance, simplifying door squaring and setting.
U-values are as low as 0.68W/m2, with each sash able to accommodate weights of 200kg and up to 3m in height.
“It also offers impressive design flexibility, while guaranteeing ultra-smooth running,” the company said.
