Stertil Stokvis has expanded its successful product range by introducing a new door featuring a very special foam core. The PIR foam, from construction industry specialist Kingspan, represents a step change in modern door manufacture.
The new door is constructed from steel sandwich panels with a polyisocyanurate (PIR) core. The polymer structure of PIR is superior to the industry standard polyurethane (PUR), in that it is difficult to ignite and self-extinguishing, thereby providing enhanced fire resistance. PIR already has an excellent track record in real fire situations in many different types of buildings including schools, hospitals, warehouses and factories.
As well as the improved fire resistance, PIR panels also offer enhanced long-term characteristics, such as low heat conductivity, excellent mechanical parameters and low water absorption. Their very fine cell structure and high closed cell content gives the panels a superior coefficient, especially when compared to PUR foamed panels.
As with all products in its range, Stertil Stokvis’s attention to detail is apparent, with high quality materials and precise process control in manufacture adding up to an expectation of long and reliable service. Furthermore, the new door panels are HFC, CFC and HCFC free, with the insulation core having been awarded a Low Global Warming Potential classification. The excellent thermal properties of the door will also help keep energy costs down.
“We’re very pleased to be adding to our range of doors with this new model,” comments Andrew Georgiou of Stertil Stokvis. “This is a value-added and future- proofed product offering many benefits, which I know will be very appealing to specifiers, developers and building owners. Users of the new door will be able to look forward to top performance, exceptional reliability and unparalleled health and safety features.”
Stertil Stokvis has over 40 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and installation of loading bay equipment and industrial door systems. Widely acknowledged for its experience and technical expertise, Stertil Stokvis introduced the world’s first RapidRoll door over 30 years ago and now offers an extensive range of fast-acting, insulated sectional overhead, roller shutter and personnel doors.
