INTACT INTELLIGENT INSTALLATION

April 8, 2024

Insensation leads the market with the only frameless doors to be manufactured with INTACT intelligent installation.

All Insensation FS1 Frameless Doors are manufactured and delivered completed pre-engineered and pre-assembled. The completely pre-hung door and frame is individually packaged in protective wrapping and ready to be individually unpacked and placed directly in the rough opening of the walls. No need for sorting through boxes of parts or watching videos to install components, Insensation INTACT intelligent installation saves contractors thousands of dollars in labor cost and shortens the entire installation process significantly since we do most of the work in our factory. Our easy 3-step installation process can be accomplished by any contractor who knows how to apply drywall. All other manufacturers will have you studying diagrams and videos for weeks while you assemble their complex products.

INSIGHTS: THE IMPORTANCE OF UNIVERSALITY

March 16, 2024

Welcome to our first edition of INsights, where we will explore our thoughts on design and construction. You will notice the IN is large, as it is in our INsensation logo, because we will put an emphasis on the interior aspect of design. Insensation means ‘interior sensation’, and even though we also manufacture very high-end exterior, entrance doors, these doors are also have an interior side which we can design to match the frameless interior doors of a luxury residence.

The first topic we will explore is universality. One of the unique aspects of our 2″ thick Insensation frameless doors is that they work the same whether push-in or pull-out, whether single or double, whether ceiling-high or not, whether pivoting in or out, we use the same products, the same exact hidden frame, the same materials. This is unique in the frameless world, as most other frameless doors have separate frames and door thickness for a push and pull door and have not been able to achieve one product for all configurations. Other manufacturers have different, inferior door thicknesses of 1 3/8″ or 1 3/4″ depending on push or pull.  No luxury home should have such thin doors. Our frameless swing doors work in any kind of wall of any thickness, unlike steel-based framed doors which have enormous design restrictions and quality problems with wall cracking.

Universality also applies to who can install our doors. While many companies will attempt to sell you their own installers, every product we design is engineered to be installed by any contractor. We often get requests from designers and architects claiming their contractors will not install our frameless doors. Our answer is always the same. If the contractor can’t use a drill and apply drywall, then they are not a contractor. It is that easy. Just this week we had a designer in Miami claiming her contractors would not install our doors because they have never done it. This particular designer also insisted that the frames be installed separately from the doors, which is an antiquated concept used with poorly engineered frameless doors. Insensation frameless doors do not come in dozens of pieces for your contractor to spend weeks putting together and praying to get a good result. Our doors are pre-milled, pre-hung and pre-assembled, completely prepared to be fit into the rough openings of a wall, with the door leaf hanging and everything prepared for our extensive lines of levers, pulls and locks.  There is no need for an expensive installation process when you understand what you are doing. If your subcontractors are messy, our doors can be protected during the plaster and painting phases. Probably 60-70% of our contractors do not even cover the doors during the finishing stages, as they work cleanly and professionally.

To sum it up, universality saves time and money, guarantees a perfect installation, and is the key indicator if a door is well engineered or not.

BIOMETRIC ENTRANCE DOORS

December 20, 2023

All Insensation’s Entrance doors are security doors, and come with extreme security options like bullet-proof cores and locks, and high-tech security access systems.

Our Smart Access is a motorised electronic lock purposely designed for use on armoured doors. The opening and closing functions are controlled by a motor and an electronic card with a state-of-the-art microprocessor. Even in the event of a power failure, the door can still be opened using the mechanical key which, thanks to a security system, can disconnect the motor during the activation of the mechanical cylinder. The system is scalable, and can be used as a simple keypad with code access or with extensive, combinable access controls for the inside and outside of the residence such as:

Biometric Fingerprint Scan, Keypad Code, Smartphone access, Smartwatch access, Transponder (fob), Card access

NEW MAGNETIC PERFECTION

November 6, 2023

Insensation’s use of magnetic lockcases in frameless doors goes way back to 2002 when we implemented the first frameless doors in Switzerland. The lack of a visible strike plate was a novelty at that time. Today, Insensation implements magnetic technology across a wide spectrum of functionality.

Magnetic Lockcases come in several versions for passage, privacy and security locks.

Magnetic Rollers are used to hold closet doors shut, and are recessed into our frames and doors.

Magnetic NoHa (No Handle) is used when clients want absolute minimalism with no levers.

Magnetic Stoppers are sunk into floors and doors to hold them from hitting the walls.

EXPEDITED SHIPPING

May 1, 2022

In these turbulent times, when all manufacturers are being challenged to deliver on time and with reasonable cost, Insensation has maintained a very high level of service. In addition to our Real-Time Tracking of ocean shipments, we now offer Expedited shipping of our frameless doors.

Expedited shipping involves shipping the Frameless door frames ahead of the actual doors. The production and delivery of the frames is typically achieved in 3-4 weeks. The doors follow several weeks later, which allows the contractor to rapidly advance the wall work on the project.

If you are interested in this new option, drop us an email.

Keep in mind that Insensation delivers pre-milled, pre-assembled and pre-hung frameless doors as our STANDARD delivery. This will save your contractor thousands of dollars and time on installation. If you choose Expedited Shipping, assembly is required on site, like all other door manufacturers, which is a disadvantage for you. It is best to plan ahead, get the best product on the market, which is our pre-hung series. Beware what some companies call pre-hung..they mean knock-down, which is NOT pre-hung. Insensation doors are fully assembled, individually packaged and placed in secure wooden crates for shipment.

Insensation has large, active interior doors projects across the USA and Canada.

FRAMELESS POCKET DOORS

May 26, 2021

For architects and contractors seeking a complete interior frameless pocket door, without having to source the track, hardware, wall reception piece, floor guide or drywall studs themselves, Insensation offers FP1, a turn-key solution which is both of high acoustic quality and eliminates any installation errors of the pocket on building sites. The architect no longer has to worry about the frameless detailing, as this concept is inherent in all our products.

FP1 accommodates single or double 1/2” sheetrock, to ensure your pocket wall is sturdy and strong. Doors leafs can be provided by us or you. The system works with doors up to 1 5/8” (42 mm). The system is engineered using a metal stud wall thickness of 3 5/8” (92 mm) with a total finished wall width of 5 5/8” (143 mm).

Includes: complete pocket construction which accepts single or double 1/2” sheetrock, heavy-duty sliding door track and wheels with 220 lbs (100 kg) capacity, door suspension, floor guide, wall reception piece, acoustic gaskets, instructions

Advantages: these doors provide a very good acoustic protection compared to other systems, and are aesthetically reduced to a frameless door appearance.  The pocket is quickly and perfectly assembled every time due to the pre-engineered components.

FP1 is available in bulk quantities at standard US sizes (7′ and 8′), and on a made-to-measure basis for individual projects.

Ask us for bulk pricing if you are a building supply company.

If you need less than 5 doors, and have a contractor or millworker who can manufacture you the door leafs, we also sell our high-end frames including all the necessary kit, pre-milled technical components, soft-stop and soft-close. Delivery of frames-only takes only approx. 3 weeks.

DOOR LEAFS come in wide variety of lacquer, wood veneer and cement finishes.
