31 Aug New fire rated door sets launched by Promat UK
Promat UK, fire protection experts, has developed two new steel framed glazed door systems and a timber door as new fire safety solutions.
All three door sets are available in EI30 or EI60 specifications, which means they will retain their integrity and provide effective insulation to protect people and assets in the event of a fire for either 30 or 60 minutes. The doors are expected to be used in commercial and domestic situations.
The new steel frame doors, PYROSEC Door and PYROSEC SLIMLITE, are designed to allow fire doors to be integrated into fire resistance screens and partitions. This will maximise light transmission and vision without compromising safety and providing some of the highest levels of fire protection. Both also integrate with the Promat SYSTEMGLAS Ferro fire resistant glazing system.
The third new fire door, a timber door set, offers the same fire resistance as the other two options for applications where a traditional timber solution is needed. It integrates with the Promat SYSTEMGLAS Ligna glazing system, which is already widely used.
The new fire rated door sets, along with the complete SYSTEMGLAS range, can be fitted by Promat approved installers, which ensures the company can provide clients with complete traceability of the installed product.
Cath McLean, Segment Manager for Glass at Promat UK said: “As the annual Fire Door Safety Week once again shines a light on why we can never become complacent about fire safety in new build and refurbishment projects, we are delighted to be able to be launching these three new door sets at this time.
“With no margin for error when it comes to the design and installation of passive fire protection products, it is important that specifiers and installers have access to the systems they can depend on. That’s why we invest in creating fully tested complete systems which ensure risk is minimised at all points in the supply chain – ultimately providing peace of mind for clients and the end-users of buildings.”
