ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The PU-Series flush doors are designed to be used where intense protection from freezing cold is a priority. The foam-in-place
Polyurethane core provides total surface support and an exceptionally flat surface, high impact resistance and outstanding
thermal resistance. It provides a high level of compression and shear strength, which is further enhanced by bonding with
facing materials. It offers the lowest “U” value and the highest R-Factor (a measure of insulating performance / thermal resistance,
and measure of ability to retard heat flow) of all the cores.
As described by HMMA / NAAMM–USA (National Association of Architectural Metal Manufacturers-United States of America):
“Urethane core doors possess superior insulating properties (R- factor of 11.1) and are suitable for exterior openings
in cold climates”.
- Foam-In-Place polyurethane thermal insulation core, having a thickness of 43 mm and a nominal density of 47 Kg/m3 (DIN 53420).
- Thermal Conductance (43 mm): U = 0.078 Btu/hr.ft2.ºF. (ASTM C177).
- Thermal Resistance: R-Factor = 12.80 hr.ft2.ºF/Btu. (ASTM C518-63T).
- Polyurethane is a thermo-setting material, which when subjected to heat, merely slowly chars without melting or producing flaming droplets (BRUFMA/ID/2/2001).
- Seamless design.
- Beveled or flush welded glass beads.
- Alkyd, polyurethane or epoxy RAL paint finish (factory applied).
- Non-handed reversible design.
- Vision panels, louver kits, transoms and sidelights.
