Key Features / Performance Characteristics

  • Series 852 hinged doors are an innovative thermally broken aluminium commercial door system designed to complement the Elevate™ Commercial thermally broken CentreGLAZE™ and FrontGLAZE™ framing systems.
  • Incorporating ThermalHEART™ technology, Series 852 hinged doors deliver excellent thermal performance and are ideal for commercial and high-end residential applications where minimising heat or cold transfer is desired.
  • To enable excellent thermal performance to be achieved, a "Thermal Break" is incorporated which separates the inside and outside elements of the frame providing an insulator to minimise the transfer of heat or cold between the elements.
  • This insulating strip is manufactured from polyamide and delivers the same structural properties as aluminium to ensure the integrity of the system is maintained.
  • Series 852 commercial hinged door system incorporated fully beaded 50mm thick heavy duty door stiles and rails designed to accept 24mm IGUs.
  • We also offer a range of snap-on glazing beads to allow us to fit thinner glass – down to 4mm thick.
  • Hinged door stiles have been designed to accept wide backset (34mm and 38mm) locks. The greater the backset the easier it is to access the key.
  • Double glazed hinged doors will be heavy and for this reason we have designed an adjustable heavy duty hinge.
  • Captive co-extruded glazing wedge option (illustrated) reduces the chance of vandalism.
  • Top and bottom rails are secured to stiles with heavy duty spigot fixed to thick backing plate with high tensile bolts.
  • Can also be configured as sliding/ Stacking door see Series 852S.
