A recent installation of a Garador FGS 700 front doors Lancashire. The Brief We are changing the front entrance of our property in Chorley, Lancashire...
The modern look of the four square windows make the Garador FGS 030 a popular choice.
Everybody knows German manufacturing as a synonym for quality and you can really see it in the Garador range of steel front doors. This quality can be seen and felt, for not only does the Garador FGS 030 look great, it also closes with a reassuring ‘thunk’.
Construction and Insulation
The door leaf is a double steel skin with a high density PU foam core. This makes the leaf both very strong and highly insulating. The windows are double glazed 24mm thick units with composite frames. The door frame is also aluminium. It has a built in thermal break which further improves insulation. Garador FGS 030 has a thermal transmittance of U=1.4W/m2k. The handle is a fixed bar type and is made from stainless steel.
Garador FGS 030 comes as standard with 5 point security. If however you’re particularly security conscious there is the choice of two security upgrades. Secure by Design is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers and is a recognised standard within the UK. If you choose this upgrade the door will have additional security features added to meet this standard. A further option available is RC 2 security. This is a recognised standard throughout Europe. RC 2 stands for Burglar Resistance Class 2 and again, if you choose this option the door will have additional security features added.
Side and Transom Elements
Garador FGS 030 is available with side and transom elements. The glazing can be either in Mastercarre to match the glazing in the leaf or float clear.
