Bradbury Group launches 1.6 U-Value door

Secured by Design (SBD) member company Bradbury Group is pleased to announce that its M2M+ doorset is now available with a certified U-Value of 1.6 W/m2K. 

As a market leader in steel security and fire doors, the group is proud to announce the launch of a 1.6 U-Value Door, meeting industry demands for energy efficiency in residential and commercial buildings.

With a focus on sustainability and environmental responsibility, Bradbury Group has developed this door to support its customers in the reduction of a building’s energy consumption and thermal efficiency, resulting in an overall decrease in a project’s carbon footprint. Achieving 1.6 W/m2K not only aligns with these goals, but also ensures compliance to Building Regulations document L, which advises 1.6 U-Value tested to BS EN ISO 12567-1, for new and existing buildings.

Extension to existing range

This latest update is an extension to the existing range for M2M+, which is already available with a fire or acoustic rating. The versatility of the M2M+ ensures that Bradbury Group can service all of a customer’s project needs, without the need to dual source.

“This is an important step in our product sustainability journey” says Andy Edser, Group Technical Director. “We are focused on achieving a certified U-Value across our entire range of products, and ensuring our customers can meet the entire needs of their clients, with the next step being our fire rated doors.”

Product specification

Bradbury Group’s U-Value door is available as a single or double doorset, manufactured with DDA or stainless-steel thresholds and with any of the group’s standard M2M+ hardware. Further information on product specification is available at
