ODL Europe, exclusive partner of Capstone Engineering and supplier of the Capstone door slab, has announced the introduction of the new Capstone SecureDesign™ Door Slab. Nathan Barr, ODL Europe’s Managing Director, said: “Our remit is to constantly innovate. The new SecureDesign™ Door Slab has been specifically designed to further enhance our composite doors to deliver a truly maintenance free door with even better performance.”
The SecureDesign™ Door Slab is manufactured with polypropylene, which eliminates water absorption and means doors will not bulge or rot, even if water intrudes through openings from seal failure of glass and letterplates, says the company. Polypropylene also retains its shape even after torsion, bending and / or flexing, giving it superior toughness. Plus, as a thermoplastic it is a good candidate for recycling.
Security is built in, which means the SecureDesign™ Door Slab is PAS 24:2016 accredited as standard. It has been designed to create fewer areas of vulnerability, which increases the difficulty of cutting through the door. The SecureDesign™ Door Slab is an integral part of the door core, rather than ‘floating’ in the door, further improving strength and overall security.
The SecureDesign™ Door Slab has a high-density polyurethane foam core which has been designed and engineered for the best flowability of the foam. This reduces possible foam voids, bulging and uneven surfaces, ensuring high quality aesthetics. Every slab is injection moulded to the specific design, delivering the same specifications and delivering consistent performance every time.
Nathan concludes: “The new Capstone SecureDesign™ Door Slab has uncompromising standards of design, build and quality that stand the test of time. Its intelligent design, superb aesthetics and technical excellence gives installers a clear competitive advantage.”
The Capstone SecureDesign™ Door Slab is available now.
