Architectural aluminium glazing specialist, Technal, has expanded its range of door systems with the launch of PXi – a thermally broken commercial door, which is its most advanced door system to date.

PXi has been specifically designed to deliver enhanced thermal performance, giving specifiers even more choice to meet the revised Building Regulations. Applications for PXi are diverse and include offices, shopping centres, supermarkets, hospitals, schools, airports and apartments.

A 9mm thermal break formed from a 15mm double flush polyamide strip provides excellent thermal efficiency, and slim sight lines give a visually attractive, contemporary finish. PXi also has a technically advanced framing system for ease of operation and maximum resistance to wear.

The PXi range will accommodate leaf sizes of up to 2.3m high and a single leaf width of up to 1.2m, and there is a choice of rebated or flush door thresholds and configurations to suit individual project requirements. Other features of the new system include single or dual colours for further design flexibility, and an overhead concealed closer for the pivot door. The option of a floor spring for the pivot door, which has two hold facilities, is also available.

The PXi door uses a 52mm module, which is fully compatible with Technal’s FXi52 casement window, allowing the creation of composite configurations. The system can also be inserted into curtain walling, making it ideal for commercial and penthouse apartment schemes.

The PXi suite benefits from a number of reassuring safety and security features. All leaves are internally glazed to prevent removal of the glass from the outside, and cylinder locks for all configurations have single or three-point double locking dead bolts. Hinged doors have a stainless steel anti-lift device and a face-fitted friction adjustable door closer. There is also the option of an anti-finger trap device.

Common tooling and a universal range of profiles, hardware and accessories simplify both specification and fabrication.
