Our new composite door offer, which was launched at the end of June (2019), is built around a cutting-edge new slab, featuring an industry leading 4mm impact resistant fibreglass skin and a high-density polyurethane foam core, which combine to deliver U-values of between 0.9 and 1.3 W/m2K dependent on glazing.
It also includes two innovative features. The first is the highly innovative Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) sub-frame, further enhancing the strength and security of the door. The second is the TriSYS three-piece dry glaze frame system which eliminates screw hole plugs and can easily be re-glazed if the glass is damaged.
John Leary, sales and marketing director at Emplas, said: “Our new composite door range delivers a series of advantages, including improved thermal efficiency and security. The TriSYS system should also make remedial work far simpler as a dry-glaze and silicone-free system.
“It’s real USP is, however, that we’re supplying it with the Kubu smart locking mechanism as standard. This gives our customers the ability to up-sell to ‘smart’ and build an increased margin into their offer, or simply supply the door as ‘standard’.
“Cost neutral it gives them the option and removes the barriers to access to the burgeoning smart home improvement market if they choose to but without obligation to do so because there’s no additional cost involved.”
Developed in partnership with Avantis, the hardware specialists, the Kubu smart lock uses smart technology to upgrade the standard multi-point locking system. All the installer has to do is insert the optional Kubu battery-powered module, with no wiring or additional work required.
This can then be linked by the end-user to their mobile phone or tablet, allowing them to real-time check the status of their locks through the Kubu app. Easy to set up, Kubu also works with other smart devices such as the Amazon Alexa.
John added: “Kubu creates another platform but there’s no obligation to sell it because there is no additional cost involved. We launched our new composite door first and foremost because the core offer allowed us to deliver more to our customers.
“It’s a better, more thermally efficient, more secure door. Kubu smart sensor technology as standard delivers further flexibility and higher margin opportunities.”
