Gerda Thermo Prime 75 – Overview
Positioned as the upper-level model within the Gerda door collection using steel doors with an aluminium frame, Gerda Thermo Prime 75 is very similar to the Thermo Premium model. The significant difference is an improved insulation material in combination with the Deceuninck thermally insulated frame. This model still offers the same highly-engineered Gerda door design with quality steel on both the inner and outer door faces, with an inset wooden structure for support with its ultra-insulating inner core.
As the rest of the Gerda doors range, Gerda Thermo Prime 75 comes as a single door with optional aluminium sidelights and toplights. Thermo Prime strongly focuses on contemporary door styles and meeting the higher insulation requirements of discerning homeowners, architects or developers. Door sizes for this model range from as slim as 840mm wide to 1130mm wide and heights from 1950mm up to 2200mm.
The upper-tier Gerda Thermo Prime 75 exterior door offers all the styling, quality and design options of the Thermo Premium 75 model but with even better thermal performance, thanks to enhanced insulation between the quality steel external and internal door skins. Expertly crafted with a robust design and evident quality, Gerda Thermo Prime 75 meets the requirements of any project wanting a highly energy-efficient front door for new build projects or general property renovations.
Gerda Thermo Prime 75 – Features and Benefits
The Gerda Thermo Prime 75 model is designed and constructed as a high-end front door, with excellent quality hardware and a feel of a solid, reliable and dependable front door set. Security, energy efficiency, weather resistance, functionality are all excellent.
Advanced polyurethane thermal core
Polyurethane is an excellent thermal core choice amongst several available for front doors because it offers superior insulation and energy efficiency when compared to styrofoam. The closed-cell structure of polyurethane better reduces heat transfer and has a higher R-value – the measure of thermal resistance too. As a result, the insulation is improved with the benefit of helping reduce energy bills and creating more comfortable interiors behind the door set.
Polyurethane’s physical properties also make it highly humidity-resistant whilst making the door leaf construction stronger than styrofoam. Polyurethane is used by leading aluminium system companies as their go-to material for creating windows and doors with low U-Values.
Low thermal transmittance
Using the polyurethane inner core, the Gerda Thermo Prime 75 door comes with U-Values of 0.9Wm2K, depending on the panel design and whether it is a solid door or is partially glazed. The substantial thermal insulation embedded within the 75mm door leaf is complemented by extensive sealing throughout the aluminium frame and the door leaf. The benefit of highly insulated front doors is a comfortable room behind the door set and working with other insulated glazing around the home, helping lower energy bills overall.
Enhanced RC2 or RC3 Security
When equipped with suitable hardware, the Gerda Thermo Prime 75 exterior doors meet the RC2 security standard and can be upgraded to the RC3 level, which subjects the door to a broader array of attack methods and tools. The superior locking system of this door includes a main lock and an upper lock, each with three steel bolts, a lower-level lock with an additional two locking points, with a vertical shoot bolt securing into the frame head.
