The Extended Performance Range takes fully engineered flush doorsets to the highest specified performance levels while offering freedom of choice with styles, finishes and colours to match doorsets from our other ranges, particularly the Designer Range of flush doorsets. Being driven by technical requirements, Extended Performance doorsets offers enhanced characteristics in the areas of acoustics, fire resistance (90 and 120 minutes), radiation shielding and security and have been used in a wide range of building types including healthcare, education, transport, leisure and industry.
This section provides detailed information on particular doorsets to meet various specific performance demands but Leaderflush Shapland works in partnership with designers to achieve doorset solutions for whatever technical challenges are presented.
Why choose Extended Performance?
There are many instances when doors and doorsets are needed with a range of different performance characteristics. One option is to source these products from a number of separate specialist companies and run the risk of encountering problems of mismatching or doors not having a uniform look after installation.
Leaderflush Shapland can manufacture doorset solutions to achieve virtually any performance and design requirements and by specifying from a single source, you can be confident that the end result will be both highly effective and aesthetically pleasing.
