Triotherm+ thermal support brackets are the perfect solution for supporting all types of doors without thermal bridging.
Due to its low thermal conductivity of 0.040W/m²K and a standard depth of 85mm, the Triotherm+ profile creates a better thermal insulation performance than the supported door.
As the load bearing capacity is just phenomenal, no door is to big or heavy, that she can´t be supported by Triotherm. Sliding doors with heavy weights have been successfully supported by
Triotherm with a simplified installation detail in comparison to conventional materials like concrete, thermal concrete blocks or thermal blocks of any other material (e.g. foam glass).
As the Triotherm system consists of various (certified) components, we can provide you a solution for almost every installation detail.
No door is to big or heavy - the highest weight for a (sliding) door, supported by Triotherm here in Ireland, is (currently) 700kg!
The images down below were taken during the installation process of Triotherm, for supporting a sliding door in a new build with raft foundation.
The most sliding doors require a wider threshold support, due to the deeper frame layout, which allows the sliding of the sash in front or behind of the fixed glass panel.
The height adjustment with packers is only required for gaps of 4mm and more.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German poet & writer
Triotherm provides installation details for almost any building design.
Is there a need for DPC when using Triotherm as thermal door threshold ?
Simple and easy: No, DPC is not recommended when using Triotherm as thermal support for door thresholds.
DPC was initially made as a horizontal waterproofing barrier, to provide rising dampness in wall structures. Over the years, it seems this material has become popular for almost every application
in regards to waterproofing.
DPC should never be used as a sealing strategy in the threshold area of doors and certainly should not be routed under the door from the outside to the inside!
DPC is unsuitable here for several reasons - the material is not flexible enough, not suitable for full-surface bonding and also has a surface structure that allows dirt to adhere easily and thus
favours moisture transport.
A professional waterproofing for Triotherm consists of an inner airtight layer and an outer waterproof layer. Triotherm itself is both airtight and waterproof, but the connection joints
(Triotherm to door frame and Triotherm to wall & floor) need to be protected in the same way, so the sealing of the full surface is recommended.
