The aïr Range Doesn’t Just Look Good, It’s Energy Efficient Too!

Posted on 30/09/2017 a 03:52pm

aïr 800, 500LS and 600LS are much more than aluminium doors. They provide a whole host of benefits to the modern homeowner including:

  • Slimline frames and large glass panes to maximise views
  • Designed for large openings
  • An easy 2-finger push & slide opening
  • Handcrafted detailing
  • 1000’s of colour options

However, we appreciate that homeowners also expect one other major benefit when investing in any new aluminium door solution for their property; exceptional energy efficiency, indeed, it’s become a top priority for many people.  

aïr obliges and promises very low U-values

For those who don’t know, U-values are a measure of heat loss. They are expressed as W/m²K and highlight the amount of heat lost in watts (W) per square metre of glass.

Simply put, the lower the U-value, the better the standard of energy efficiency provided by the product.

Here’s the good news…

The aïr 500LS and aïr 600LS have a U-value from just 0.95 W/m²K.

The aïr 800 has a U-value from just 1.4 W/m²K.

This means that they’re terrifically effective at keeping out the cold and limiting heat loss by retaining much of the warmth generated by your boiler.

They also provide extreme wind resistance, being capable of withstanding wind speeds of up to 100mph, so there’s little chance of blustery conditions ever getting the better of these captivating doors.

It helps too that they contain Teflon® coated, interlocking seals to give aïr added protection against the weather, dust and dirt. This will ensure that they consistently glide across the track with immense ease.
