DOORS TECHNICAL

Discover why our doors are so special

Exceeding expectations & regulations...

All RK aluminium front doors far exceed the current recommended energy efficiency regulations. Doors energy efficiency is measured as a 'U value' and new doors must have a minimum U value of 1.8W/m2K (1.6W/m2K in Scotland) or less, with lower numbers being better. A typical wooden door might have a U value of around 2.5W/m2K and a lot of new doors will be just meeting the basic requirement of 1.80W/m2K...

Our doors far exceed this level and our 'Excellence' Premium door has a U value rating at an amazing 0.67W/m2K* with our 'Excellence' Standard door has a U Value of 0.92W/m2K*, far better than many other doors on the market.

Secure front doors

Enhanced security on all doors...

All our doors, benefit from "Secured by Design" and "PAS 24" enhanced security certification to ensure full compliance with UK Buidling Regulation and insurance requirements and giving our customers complete peace of mind.

You can even add our finger print entry system for added security and convenience.
