XP Frame: The easy install, expandable depth window and door frames available at SAS Direct
18th May 2011
The innovative XP frame is now available direct from the manufacturer at SAS Direct Depots throughout the UK. This range of expandable depth aluminium door and window frames can be installed swiftly into either plasterboard partitions or masonry walls between 74mm and 225mm thick.
The XP frame, manufactured by SAS International, provides contractor’s with a price competitive product which is quick and easy to install. All XP door and window frames are supplied as fully finished pre-assembled kits for rapid on-site fitting. Once unpacked, the frames can be installed within 20 minutes for a professional and neat finish.
When fitting door and window frames, wall systems can vary in width and plasterboard can vary significantly in thickness. These fully depth adjustable frames are not reliant on set wall thickness or perfect square openings. Both the door and window frames can provide up to 60 minutes fire resistance.
Door frames are supplied as door sets, complete with a SAS-veneered door and factory-fitted, non-protruding ironmongery. Whilst window frames are supplied with the appropriate rated glass, direct from the factory, reducing on-site installation time.
To meet the varying wall thicknesses, two different sized XP frames are available with either rounded or square profiles; Standard, for wall thicknesses between 74mm and 123mm or Jumbo, for wall thicknesses between 118mm and 225mm.
XP frames suit both 44mm and 54mm standard and bespoke door leaf sizes and are available from stock to suit 2,040mm x 926mm leaves in RAL 9006 and RAL 9010.
