Kawneer launches commercial entrance door

An entrance door with thermal performance that is offered with a lifetime guarantee has been launched by Kawneer.

Kawneer’s AA 190 TB door features welded corner construction – said to be the strongest aluminium door construction available, with each corner having four separate weld points, each of which has a ‘lifetime guarantee’. The door is said to be suitable for use in severe-duty applications as defined in BS 6375-2: 2009.

With regards to weather performance, the system has Class 2 (300 Pa) air permeability, Class 3A (100 Pa) watertightness and Class C2 (800 Pa) wind resistance, results that are based on an open-in double door with butt hinges and rebated threshold.

It is described as an all-purpose door for use in high-traffic areas and automatic entrances. With security hardware it meets Secured by Design criteria.

The door is designed to accept glass units up to 43mm thick, with a maximum leaf weight of 120kg with an overhead closer and a maximum of 200kg using the floor closer, all with leaf sizes up to 1320mm wide and 3000mm high.

As well as the properties mentioned above, the AA 190 TB door also reportedly provides improved thermal performance. According to Kawneer, a whole-door thermal transmittance of Uw = 1.7 W/m2K can be achieved with a glass centre pane of Ug = 1.0 W/m2K.

The AA 190 TB door is offered with a finger guard pivot stile as standard, safeguarding against injury to fingers that might be accidentally caught between the hinge stile and frame.

Independently tested to PAS 24: 2016 for the enhanced security performance of single and double-leaf external doors, the enhanced security is available for both pivot and butt hung doors which can feature panic hardware.

A range of multi-point lock options provides security solutions for all applications including panic doors and electronic access control. There is also a range of thresholds including drained low thresholds compliant with the Equality Act 2010.

For design flexibility the AA 190 TB door is available as single-leaf and double-leaf in open-in, open-out and dual-action swing doors suitable for automatic powered operation. Additionally, the AA 190 TB door can be used with automatic sliding or bi-parting entrance systems.

Naturally, the door is available with its own thermally broken framing system – 451PT, which suites with other Kawneer fenestration solutions.

All door options are available in an extensive range of single or dual-colour finishes.
