12 Oct Fire certified Frame System launched
In the UK, Profab Access has launched a certified frame system which sets a new standard for fire performance, functionality and innovation.
The PRECISION adjustable frame makes installation on site safer, by transforming the process and streamlining the specification process for architects and specifiers. This is all achievable thanks to the unique construction of the product. The frame can be fully adjusted to fit specific dimensions of each structural opening.
In addition the need for plastic packers is removed making installation safer, faster and simpler. The need to rely on non-compliant components which may not have been tested in conjunction with the riser door is eliminated.
The PRECISION adjustable frame has been bi-directionally fire tested along with the INTEGRA 4000 Series Riser Door as an entire doorset for up to 120 minutes. It received the CERTIFIRE accreditation for installation in unlined shaft walls and solid wall construction.
Marcus Parnham, Commercial Director at Profab Access, said: “We have a responsibility to push the boundaries of this product category and ensure every access solution we supply delivers the highest standards in performance and compliance.
“Our new patent pending PRECISION adjustable frame represents a real step change for the industry, supporting professionals in fulfilling their duty of care by going above and beyond current legislation in delivering the highest standards of due diligence and achieving constant compliance for the entire doorset, including the materials used throughout the installation process. The frame is the result of our unwavering commitment to innovation and providing the built environment with the very highest standards in access solutions.”
Even in the event of a fire, occupants’ safety is ensured. The PRECISION adjustable frame is constructed from all-in-one smoke, intumescent and acoustic FS1000 seal, removed the need for additional intumescent mastic. With no halogen compounds, this sustainable material won’t emit toxic gas when heated.
