Crossing the Threshold into a New Era - with Hollodeen

Reasons To Build Hollodeen Into Your Development Plans

It may not be a name you are familiar with but the highly innovative range of Hollodeen thresholds designed for standard, bi-fold and portal door systems, offer you a wide range of benefits way beyond the traditional materials being used currently. For not only are they durable, accessible (meeting Part M Regulations) and virtually indestructible, but they are also highly sustainable.

In fact, we think they come with so many benefits that once you try them, you’ll be sold on Hollodeen solutions.

So Why Hollodeen? Here’s 15 Good Reasons…

  • Offering extremely low heat conductivity - Hollodeen provides excellent thermal values – with a thermal advantage of 0.4w/m.k.
  • Lifetime guarantee - made from an innovative resin, the thresholds are unbreakable
  • 100% recyclable and manufactured from 90% recycled material
  • No maintenance or painting required
  • Integrated drainage channels
  • Self-coloured throughout the whole section and available in a variety of finishes
  • Solid construction making it unbreakable and more secure
  • Available in a number of profiles for standard doors, bi-folds and Lift & Slide configurations
  • Bespoke profiles available
  • Meeting Part M with a timber cill is challenging and rots in the ground, Hollodeen is Part M compliant and won’t rot, making it particularly suitable for use at ground level.
  • Is weatherproof and very suitable for coastal locations
  • Passivhaus standards can be met by combining Hollodeen thresholds with twin perimeter seals.
  • Fire resistant to 30 minutes
  • Joiners can also benefit from the pre-machined profile saving them valuable workshop time
  • Ease of fitting – simpler to fit than timber alternatives

But don’t just take our word for it:

“Since Costal introduced us to the benefits of Hollodeen it has been a no brainer to use them for all of our bi-fold door applications. This works perfectly with our Accoya products giving us a trouble free product. We introduce our customers to Hollodeen during our first conversations, giving them the option of a timber cill as well. So far everyone has opted for the Hollodeen. We have even had specially produced sections to cope with triple glazing and plinth brickwork.”

Why compare the performance of your weatherseal?

It's a fact that high quality weatherseal performance can make a big difference, providing excellent protection from all the elements – wind, water, smoke, and sound. And with our Tempo Weatherseal solutions you can enjoy great results:

  • Increases the energy performance of your doors and windows, keeping the warmth in and the cold out.
  • No water soak up due to closed cell micro foam, keeping the weather where it belongs – outside!
  • Smoke-resistant up to 200°C and compliant with norm NEN 6075 and EN 1634-3.
  • Excellent sound insulation thanks to the hollow-chamber design.

Tempo Weatherseal by Deventer is designed to provide better compression than any other seal on the market, making doors and windows easier to close but still provide an excellent seal. Not only that, it’s easy to install with the adjustable foot allowing grooves from 2.8 - 5.2mm.

Jump the Q with Coastal

9th May 2017

Jump the Q

It’s been 18 months since we first launched our Part Q initiative helping the door and window industry meet new Building Regulations and in that time have helped joinery firms across England meet the PAS24 standards.

The impact on the industry of Part Q, requiring all new build properties in England from October 2015 to have security rated PAS24 certified doors and windows fitted as standard, cannot be underestimated. Everyone involved in the manufacturing of doors and windows has been affected, from large manufacturers to small joinery firms – who all faced (and continue to face) the prospect of having their products tested and certified at significant financial cost. Our Part Q initiative - has been designed to take the pressure away from joinery firms and has helped scores of them offer their customers a range of PAS24 compliant doors and windows without the huge time and financial burdens.

It’s not just us talking about the benefits of our Part Q initiative. Iain McIlwee of the British Woodworking Federation writes:

PartQ Quote
“ The team at Coastal Group are to be applauded for taking such a proactive approach to helping our small and medium sized joinery companies meet their Part Q responsibilities. Part Q created a unique challenge for the timber door and window manufacturing sector, but through prescriptive methods of compliance that the BWF has developed and companies such as Coastal rallying to provide cascadable test evidence, it has not been as disruptive as it could have been.”

PartQ testing strip

Currently we have six products that have been successfully Part Q certified including:

  • High Performance Flush, Side Hung Window
  • High Performance Flush, Top Hung Window
  • Box Frame Sliding Sash Window, Weights & Pullies
  • Single Flush Door, Open In
  • Double Flush Door, Open Out (SOLO)
  • Bi-Folding Doors, Open Out

But we’re not stopping there. Because as part of our culture of continually improving and innovating, creating industry-led solutions, we are working on adding more products to our Part Q initiative. Watch the press for new additional products as and when they come online.
