Aïr Performance Standards Explained

We have quite simply thought of everything.

When it comes to looking for a set of sliding or bi-fold doors, many people don’t know what to look out for. What separates the average from the best? It is hard to distinguish. We want to make that easy for you, and so we hang our hat on the following measures. Whether you are buying a set of aïr doors or not – always demand to know what you are putting into your home.


Ease of Maintenance

An aïr door gives you all the advantages of slimline and thermally efficient aluminium that only requires cleaning with a mild soapy solution. Every air door is coated using the latest in coating technology to protect your doors all year round and ensure they look great for years to come. Whether you choose our exclusive and durable aircoat or other colour, you are guaranteed a door that is easy to maintain and keep clean all year round. The hardware fitted to our doors is also extensively cycle tested to ensure it performs faultlessly every time.

Weather Resistance

The elements naturally play a huge role in testing the integrity of your doors. Thats why wind load and watertightness are essential values to be aware of. Wind load is the amount of force a structure can take from the impact of the wind. Watertightness is the measure of how much water can penetrate an object. Both are measured in pascals (pa). The higher the pa value the better.

Ease of Use

We have carefully considered every aspect of an air door to ensure years or trouble free operation. We’ve engineered our products to work effortlessly and seamlessly, even with wide and tall doors. The hardware and components on an air door are the very best available. Every component is designed to ensure your new door will be secure, weather resistant and long-lasting. At the same time you’ll find our doors easy to use with a smooth and precise action.


Safety & Security

Our homes are precious, they hold inside the things most dear to us. Don’t compromise security. aïr doors are tested to PAS24 Secured by Design standard – keeping even the most determined of intruders out.

Energy Efficiency

A U-Value is a calculation that measures the heat transmission or loss through building materials. U-Values are shown in W/m2K. Your new aïr doors are designed to offer you some of the best U-Values in the door industry.


Configuration Options

Every home is different with large or small spaces, restrictions internally and other considerations. Therefore your ideal doors should offer the flexibility to be manufactured as you want it. This is where aïr doors can provide solutions.
