If your smoke alarm goes off in the middle of the night, do not investigate to see if there is a fire, shout to wake everyone up and get out.
On the way out check closed doors with the back of your hand – if they are warm do not open them – the fire is on the other side.
Hope for the best, be prepared for the worst.
- Make sure that locked doors and windows can be opened easily from the inside.
- Make sure everyone knows where door and window keys are kept and are easily available
Now rewind back in the moment of building the home
When you build you want to be sure that you are getting the best quality and safety, and at the same time a possibility everything to be aesthetically pleasing. We, as your partner in building, strive to provide the best technology that delivers safety, security, and comfort beautifully, which is why we have invested in innovation and came up with the aluminium door that can resist fire. This highly integrated state of the art solution offers two ranges, to retard fire for 30 and 60 minutes, both designed for inside and outside application.
This system provides a high-quality flush door and partitioning system that combines elevated requirements regarding fire resistance, stability, safety, and thermal insulation while offering the comfort of the use of standard profiles and components.
Want an XL door? Yes. It’s possible!
The size is never a problem. The doors can be used in different compositions and in combination with fixed glazing to create limitless glass walls and to increase light and transparency in the building. Both single and double-leaf doors are available up to a maximum door leaf size of 1,3 by 2,75 meters, making it possible to design extra-large doors.
Talking about the glass
A single glass clip type applies to all applications and additional approved screw corner connections are provided to facilitate transportation of larger elements. Glass thicknesses of between 15 to 52 mm apply to the EI30 solution while the EI60 allows thicknesses from 23 to 52 mm. With a clearance around a glass of 6 mm, any standard floor connections can be chosen.
Test- Don’t assume!
In order to determine the stability, thermal insulation, and radiation insulation over a certain amount of time, we have conducted a test by exposing the system to fire. This was done with glass and hardware of different suppliers, resulting in the widest possible range of approved solutions.
The test confirmed outstanding fire and smoke resistant performance. The well-insulated profiles with cooling inserts and intumescent strips that expand substantially in volume when exposed to heat, sealing every gap while the cooling inserts control the maximum temperature increase of the element surface, contain the fire by 30 or 60 minutes.
And the aesthetic…?
Architectural versatility, aesthetics, superior quality, and ease of construction were not neglected. Having in mind the needs of homeowners, office owners, architects, and constructors, we provide an option for door and partitioning system and also fixed windows. Its extended range of flush doors is available for all inward and outward opening door types. It is designed to accept a full range of door locks and hinges to fit all types of locking requirements, including standard single-point locks up to motorized multi-point locks, as well as fully integrated solutions in building management systems.
