For installation companies looking to offer contemporary design and innovative engineering to customers, the new Technic-AL RD1, is a striking new residential door range from AluFoldDirect.
“Consistent customer demand for a beautiful, top quality entrance door was the inspiration behind this new range,” explains Craig Miller, Managing Director at AluFoldDirect. “We wanted to create an entrance door that could match the design and quality values of our aluminium bi-folding and sliding doors and slimline windows.
“Too often, installers have not been able to source a main entrance door to perform like their new aluminium bi-folding door. Our research also found that aesthetics is crucial for our customers, so we then set about building a product that looked stunning and matched top security expectations and exceeded regulation on energy efficiency.”
The result is the new Technic-AL RD1 Residential Door range, a collection which meets customer demand for high-end design and superb performance.
This contemporary range of entrance doors is completely unique. The slimline, thermally broken, aluminium frame is filled with an engineered, thermally insulated timber door blade, available in nine stunning designs. There are multiple colour options and a five-stage paint process for a beautiful finish to satisfy even the most exacting requirements. Modern pole handle options complete the look.
RD1 has full Secured by Design accreditation and features the Winkhaus AV2 lock and an SBD Yale Platinum 3-star cylinder for total security. Building regulations are fully catered for with U-Values ranging from 1.3 to 1.6W/m2K, dependent on door blade design.
There are nine distinctive designs available, each named after a cosmopolitan European city, including Bonn, Bruges and Maastricht.Made to measure RD1 residential doors are available on a three-week lead time in the seven most popular colour choices, with fully bespoke colours and dual colour options taking a little bit longer.
“The RD1 range offers extensive design options to homeowners and a new opportunity for our installer customers. There are no stock sizes – each Technic-AL RD1 Residential Door is a handmade piece of furniture, designed and manufactured to each individual order for a completely bespoke solution,” continues Craig.
“Our installer customers have built their aluminium offering reliant on our fast, competent expertise in aluminium bi-folding, sliding doors and slimline windows. We have listened to what customers want to add to their product range and created Technic-AL RD1 to fill this niche, for end users looking for something extraordinary, but not wanting to wait for months or pay an exorbitant over the top price.”
