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 timeless design of the Garador FGS 100 is perfectly suited to blend in with most UK homes.
Don’t be fooled by the classic look of this door. This is a German manufactured state of the art steel front door. Steel front doors offer both excellent insulation and security.
Construction & Insulation
The 46mm thick leaf is made of a double steel skin with a foam core. The foam is ridged CFC free PU. This is injected into the steel body and thus makes the door extremely strong. The door frame of Garador FGS 100 is made from extruded aluminium. The frame has a built in thermal break which further improves insulation. When purchased without a letter plate this door has a thermal transmittance value of U=1.1W/m2k.
As standard with Garador FGS 100 you get a five point security as standard. There is also the option to upgrade to either the Secure by Design security standard or RC 2 security standard. Secure by Design is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers. This is a recognised security standard within the UK. The upgrade includes a high security cylinder & keys and a registration card. RC 2 stands for Burglar Resistance Class 2. This standard is recognised throughout Europe and also includes a security rose escutcheon to protect the cylinder.
Side and Transom Elements
With Garador FGS 100 you have the choice of solid panel or glazed side elements. The solid panels are in the same Georgian panel style as the leaf. In addition, glazed panels are available with either cathedral or clear glass. Transom elements are only available glazed.
