JELD-WEN Reveals Low U Value Composite Doorset Range – DreamVu™ 68

There is now an even better solution to achieving greater energy efficiency and meeting the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes, as JELD-WEN has released an exciting new range of low U value composite doorsets, known as DreamVu™ 68.

JELD-WEN’s DreamVu™ 68 composite doorsets are 68mm thick and will deliver outstanding U values down to 0.7 W/m2K. Building on the popularity with specifiers of JELD-WEN’s high performance DreamVu™ window range, these doorsets are double weather-sealed to counteract the effects of wind-driven rain and feature an innovative design, with one seal integrated within the frame and one within the door.

The new doorsets will be revealed in an exciting range of contemporary designs, as well as in the most popular designs of JELD-WEN’s existing range of composite doors. Doors will be available in glazed and unglazed versions, with styles featuring triple-glazed Argon filled units to further enhance thermal performance. JELD-WEN’s DreamVu™ 68 composite doorsets are Secured by Design compliant as standard, for enhanced protection of building occupants.

Chris Miller, Product Manager for JELD-WEN, explains: “We have responded to demand from the market for composite doorsets with higher thermal performance, to meet the more stringent building performance requirements. Our new DreamVu™ 68 doorsets create a compelling proposition for anyone looking for energy efficiency with excellent all-round performance. We are expecting a great deal of interest from specifiers and developers, especially those building to the higher code levels or on carbon zero projects.”

JELD-WEN’s composite doorsets are renowned for offering six times the thermal performance of other materials, as well as providing a robust finish. The doorsets are manufactured from high performance GRP, which will not splinter or dent and each door face is through-coloured woodgrain to replicate the look of real wood and requires no further decoration.

JELD-WEN’s range is available with the option of woodgrain effect to recreate the look of real timber, or with a smooth faced, if preferred.
