Eurocell, a leading manufacturer, distributor and recycler of PVC-U building products, is launching a brand new product to maintain its strength in the patio door market.
Syncro provides a new level of sustainability alongside it's strength and security, plus improved design and performance that meet the demands of installers and homeowners alike thanks to a number of features.
These include main frames made using at least 60% post-consumer recycled PVC-U; better thermal efficiency, with triple glazed U-values as low as 1.0; a 3.5m maximum width, one of the largest PVC-U patio door systems on the market; and a unique new soft close system, which, along with a choice of standard or heavy duty rollers allowing sash weights of up to 140kg, makes for a much smoother glide and closure action with no ‘bounce back.’
Something else new is the option of a through-colour grey substrate – a first for Eurocell in a patio door. Not only does this the give installers a way to meet current design trends for the all grey look; because patio doors are open so much of the time on sunny summer days, it also makes for much cleaner lines by doing away with the exposed white sash core.
Smooth or matt grey foil options can also be ordered, which have a special ‘cool colours’ heat reflective pigment base to reduce expansion on hot days. Traditional rosewood and golden oak from stock, plus 32 further colour options on longer lead times, extend the colour choices still further, while hardware is available in white, chrome or graphite, with flush fitting exterior handles available.
Syncro is tested to BS6375 and PAS24 2016 standards and therefore meets the requirements of Document Q - the newest security guidelines for patio doors. And for additional peace of mind, Syncro has been through 50,000 cycles of open and close tests to prove robustness.
Ian Kernaghan, Head of Product Design and Development for Eurocell commented, “Syncro has been designed to meet the changing needs of the patio door market and we believe it does that job beautifully. It offers customers genuinely attractive new options like triple glazing, a soft close feature and white or grey substrate options, in addition to using recycled PVC-U content and achieving new levels of thermal and acoustic insulation efficiency.
“The huge interest Syncro had when it was previewed at FIT 2019 shows the trade really is ready for a new generation of patio doors offering even easier fabrication, easier installation and the smoothest operation on the market. Syncro is another demonstration of how our commitment to research and development keeps our products in sync with the demands of designers, fabricators, installers and homeowners across the board.”
