Over 10 per cent of homes in England are built on a flood plain, and 11 per cent of homes built since the year 2000 are in flood hazard areas.
If your home is at risk, Elitis offer a range of residential composite doors which provide extra protection for householders in the event of flooding. Elitis Duo Guard doors are the perfect solution for front line flood protection.
Tested in specially constructed test rigs, the double-rebated Duo Guard door significantly outperformed a standard single-rebated door.
While not designed to stop every drop of water entering, Elitis flood doors are built to drastically resist and reduce water ingress to the property. At a water level of 600mm, the doors permitted only 3.25 litres of water per hour to enter, whereas a normal single-rebate door allows 800 litres of water through the seals.
The 68mm thick, thermally efficient Duo Guard door features new developments in sealing, fixing and locking technology. The door is equipped with 12 locking points, increasing security, and it doesn’t compromise on appearance either – The doors look exactly the same as a standard composite door.
