Responding to UK/Ireland specifier calls for high-performance door components, James Latham introduces FERRO, a premium range of highly durable and weather resistant external door blanks from leading brand Moralt.
Comprising some of the most robust external blanks currently available on the market, FERRO blanks are made from top-quality natural and engineered timbers, with either paintable plywood, exterior MDF or decorative veneered plywood faces.
What sets the FERRO blanks apart from others on the market is that each one contains two thermally isolated solid steel stabilising bars in its core, helping to prevent bowing and warping.
Such is the degree of anti-bowing and warping strength achieved through the incorporation of the steel stabilisers every FERRO blank comes with a 10-year anti-bowing guarantee. Going even further, Moralt is committed to replace any FERRO door, free-of-charge, which warps more than 4mm over this period, including fitting costs.
Ready For Any Application
That’s not all. The FERRO range is CE-certified and has been developed to meet contemporary specification requirements, particularly in line with evolving UK and Ireland regulations around energy efficiency and fire safety.
Starting with the standard Klassikplus, specifiers can choose from a wider range of enhanced blanks with increased thermal performance, soundproofing and fire resistant properties; or a combination of all these augmentations.
An All-Round Performer
Perfect for any application, whether on or off site, commercial or residential, the FERRO range delivers on every level.
Unlike many competing products it can be used to manufacture doors which are strong and robust and deliver maximum interior comfort through optimum airtightness, with a customisable finish for unrivalled visual appeal. This guarantees long-term value on every level.
Even better, all blanks in the range meet the UK’s newly introduced sustainability requirements for residential properties, ensuring developers and asset owners remain compliant with regulation.
Commenting on the introduction of FERRO in the UK and Ireland, James Latham’s Group Door Manager, Steve Williams, says, “FERRO is one of the most exciting architectural products currently available in the UK and Irish market, the perfect balance of style and substance. Its steel stabiliser gives it unrivalled durability, particularly from a structural and security perspective, giving residents and asset owners extra peace-of-mind the external doors on their properties will provide extra protection from the elements and intruders. Furthermore, developers will feel reassured that the thermal performance of the FERRO range will help them meet the revised Part L requirements, which become compulsory in June 2023. Once again, Moralt has responded to its audience’s requirements with a product that goes above and beyond to meet almost any specification.”
