Dorma Gulf has launched the ST Flex Green sliding door, which is designed to increase energy efficiency and improve the sustainability of buildings.
Despite its slender profile, ST Flex Green offers outstanding thermal insulation, as confirmed by German testing, surveillance and certification body ift Rosenheim.
Carrying an environmental production declaration (EPD) certificate, ST Flex Green is designed to function as an aesthetic sliding door. Incorporating energy efficiency into an elegant design, it is also suitable for emergency exits and escape routes.
ST Flex Green meets the requirements of the latest German energy saving regulation, (EnEV 2009) and its dual drive technology enables reliable operation of emergency exits. The sliding door range is designed to blend with its surroundings, and meets the highest regulatory standards for smooth access solutions, says Dorma.
Commenting on the new product, Agy Mathew, product marketing manager, Dorma Gulf, says: “The ST Flex Green sliding door is a revolutionary system ideal for sophisticated interiors and landmark projects in this region. Its unique selling point is its elegant sleek profiles, and it does not compromise on luxury. Excellent interlocking side seals and top and bottom seals enhance the benefits of the solution.”
The ST Flex Green boasts a low thermal transmission co-efficient, making the door energy-efficient by effectively controlling the transfer of heat from outside a building. It is a very sustainable and reliable solution designed to enhance a building’s overall appeal.
“The ST Flex Green is an impressive solution based on the Flex profile system by Dorma Gulf, offering protection against draughts via circumferential seals and thermal insulation in conjunction with excellent energy-saving features for the highest stability and rigidity,” says Mathew.
