The panelled design with half-moon shaped window is one that’s stood the test of time. Garador FGS 200 uses this classic design but on a high performance door.
Garador FrontGuard doors are produced in Germany in a state of the art manufacturing facility. They provide excellent insulation values and are secure.
Construction & Insulation
The 46mm thick door leaf is made from double skin steel with a ridged PU foam core. This method of door construction makes the leaf excellent for insulation and also very strong. The window is double glazed with cathedral style glass. The door frame is extruded aluminium with an integral thermal break which also helps with insulation. Garador FGS 200 has a thermal transmittance of U=1.2W/m2k when fitted without a letter plate.
Garador FGS 200 comes with 5 point security as standard. This includes: locking rod, soft locking latch, shoot bolts, hook bolts and hinge pins. There is then the option of two different security upgrades: Secure by Design or RC 2. Secure by design upgrade consists of a high security cylinder & keys and a registration card. Secure by Design is a UK only recognised standard. RC 2 is a Europe wide recognised standard. This upgrade includes a security rose escutsion to protect the cylinder from attack.
Side and Transom Elements
Side elements for Garador FGS 200 are available as either solid panels in the same style as the door or as full glazed panels. Ransom elements are only available glazed. Glazed elements are available with either cathedral style glass or clear.
