The best designs always provide a practical but elegant solution to a serious problem. Using a unique combination of some of the strongest and most robust materials in the world including steel, GRP, toughened triple or double glazed units and high density polyurethane, every Apeer70 and Apeer44 has security at its very core.
The company’s Apeer 70 and Apeer 44 doorsets are now being constructed with an all-GRP inner sash, replacing the u-PVC sash with fibre glass. It means the entire unit is now made from one material, effectively eliminating any possibility of movement or distortion – a common problem with other types of doorset and the cause of many remedial callbacks throughout the industry.
Did you know that much like your washing machine or your fridge freezer, your front door can be energy rated too? So, when we created our flagship product the Apeer70, we used the very latest in design and materials to help keep the heat in and the cold out; creating one of the most energy efficient doors available.
Made from fibreglass (GRP) and high-density polyurethane materials and with the extremely efficient draught excluding double rebate, all Apeer70 doors can be specified to achieve the maximum A rating. Even if you want to include glazing in your door* we can use toughened, triple insulated, low E, gas filled glass units meaning you can benefit from extra light without having to compromise greatly on your door’s thermal performance. These units also come complete with the Q Seal warm edge Super Spacer® system. This non-conductive double-sealed spacing inside the panes of glass significantly improves the thermal performance and durability of the glazing.
Why is double rebate important?
Apeer70’s double rebate system adds additional draught protection by creating an internal secondary rebated seal.
For better insulation every Apeer70 is equipped with toughened triple glazed units and Apeer44 with double glazed units. Glazed units are also available with Low E glass and can be gas filled to offer improved thermal performance.
*As you would expect, large areas of glass in the door and surrounding sidelights and toplights can reduce the energy performance of your front door. By specifying low E, gas filled glazed units, you can improve this, but we recommend you work with your dealer to achieve the perfect combination of looks, light and energy performance that is right for your home.
Integrating glass into your Apeer door is a simple way to add personality and light to your living space. All of our bevelled glass, fused tile and sandblasted designs are hand crafted by our decorative glass experts. Each design is then integrated into our unique triple or double-glazed units and then presented in the door framed by a matching timber-effect, raised internal moulding trim. We have ensured that these glazed units can only be accessed from the inside, which both further enhances the security features of your door and facilitates redecorations or replacements.
Unique Glazing System.
Matching timber-effect raised mouldings are fitted to the inside of the door which cover our reinforced, fully insulated toughened glazed units
In an Apeer door, every last detail is carefully designed to make a real difference. So when we apply the finishing touches, we put as much consideration and effort into things like glazing trims and mouldings, as we do the overall door finish. Details like our timber-effect raised mouldings and handmade, triple or double insulated decorative glass units might be harder to create, but they are what makes an Apeer door look so unique.
