Kawneer opens the door on its BRE Green Guide A rated range


A swing door has been added to Kawneer’s AA®540 window range.

Leading architectural aluminium systems supplier Kawneer has further enhanced its AA®540 window range, which combines value for money with a BRE Green Guide “A” rated frame*1, with a high-performance swing door.

The AA®545 door uses the same multi-chamber thermal break core as the AA®541 casement, AA®542 pivot and AA®543 tilturn windows in the range. This technology, along with the addition of a thermally enhanced centre seal, ensures thermal efficiency (Uw values down to 1.29 W/m2K using 0.6 W/m²K glazing)*2 and full compliance with Document L.

Designed for direct fix into prepared openings and within ribbon windows, the door suites with Kawneer’s AA®540 window range, AA®100 and AA®110 curtain walling, 451PT framing and door systems to give specifiers and architects even more flexibility for new-build and refurbishment projects in low and high-rise applications where cost is a key driver.

Available as a single-action open-in or open-out swing door, it also features a range of threshold options including a low threshold for easy wheelchair access (compliant with Document M), a barrier-free for a seamless transition or a fully rebated option for improved weathering.

There is also a range of hardware options including a choice of panic exit options to allow usage on a variety of applications and additional finger guard hardware to provide additional safety.

Capable of taking triple glazing up to 47mm, square and soft-line profile options give a choice of aesthetics while adjustable two or three-part hinges make it suitable for use in light and medium-traffic locations.

The AA®545 swing door is completing a range of stringent laboratory tests carried out by a UKAS accredited testing authority which includes air permeability Class 4A, watertightness Class 9A, windload resistance Class AE2400 and PAS 24 Standard for the enhanced security performance on single and double-leaf external doors.

*1 Corresponds to the BRE Global Green Guide online generic specification for windows and achieves a summary rating of A (www.thegreenguide.org.uk, Element Number 831500023).

*2 Based on a standard single door, open out on a CEN sized door.
