As Solidor continues to innovate in the composite door sector, they have just unveiled The Radlington, a new deep nose cill that is available in nine finishes complete with matching foiled end caps.
The Radlington is perfect for the replacement door market and is a modern interpretation of a traditional timber cill, with similar dimensions, yet it also offers a traditional appearance for any new build project. Traditional timber cills were deep and usually aligned with a course of bricks and often these did vary in height, while metric bricks are generally 65mm high.
For these reasons, The Radlington has been designed and engineered 55mm high, with a projection of 165mm, allowing for packing, expansion, baypole jacks and irregular mortar. Yet the first installations have shown that it is far quicker to install on site and a more robust cill option than a standard 30mm high by 150mm projection cill, which is designed more with PVCu windows in mind.
This new type of cill is available for the existing Solidor range in nine finishes including white, foiled white, cream, Chartwell Green, Irish Oak, golden oak, rosewood, grey, Schwarzbraun black. There are also eight further finishes to match the colours of the latest Solidor/R9 composite door offering, with exclusive finishes such as silvered oak and Painswick.
Lee Williams, sales director of Solidor commented: ‘The Radlington is a true replacement of the traditional timber cill, yet with modern engineered materials and structurally a great choice for a composite door installation. It’s a fundamental part of our strategy to offer our customers new and exciting products and The Radlington certainly fits the bill.’
