Here is a link to the on-line chart; www.ralcolor.com however each of our vans have a booklet so you can get a colour match on site if required.
Thermally Broken Aluminium
One thing to bear in mind is that aluminium is a very good conductor of heat which means that in the summer it won’t offer you much protection from the sun and likewise in the winter your premises may be poorly insulated. A solution to this is to offer thermally broken aluminium. The term “break” or “thermal break” means that it actually acts as a barrier to separate both sides of the aluminium frame (inside and out).
The thermally broken section is installed with high U value double glazed units to help combat the elements. Therefore, in the summer it will stop the heat and likewise in the winter eliminate the cold coming in too. This option can be costly, so you would need to weigh up how much of a benefit it would bring you. They do offer a great energy efficient solution and improve insulation and it can also make the premises a little sound proof too.
Toughened Glass Assemblies
Toughened glass is a type of safety glass which is made by taking controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase the strength up to 5 times compared with normal glass.
Toughening the glass puts the outer parts into a compressed state and inside under tension. With the glass being under a stressed state when broken it actually breaks into small granular chunks instead of breaking into huge jaggy and sharp shards as normal glass does. Therefore, toughened glass is much safer and is definitely an option to consider if you are going to be in an environment where the glass can be at risk of being easily broken.
Due to this being safer and stronger, toughened glass is used in a variety of different projects. This included but is not limited to, hotel doors, internal office doors, external shop fronts.
EAS toughened glass manual doors are available in 10, 12 or 15mm options with a variety of different fittings available. We also offer full length top and bottom rails either 78 or 100mm wide and available in a range of finishes including brushed or stainless steel. We also offer patch fittings which are a smaller alternative to a full-length rail meaning that you have a more frameless look.
All toughened glass doors are normally fitted with floor sprints, meaning that the door closer is actually fitted in the ground underneath the door leaf.
