Promat UK launches integrity-only fire resistant glass doors

Passive fire protection specialist Promat UK has launched the PYROSEC E Door range, a versatile solution which offers assured E-rated ‘integrity-only’ fire resistance of up to 60 minutes in a visually appealing design.

Available in single, pair or ‘leaf and half’ configurations, the PYROSEC E Door is ideal for a wide variety of applications where the fire strategy allows for integrity-only performance. With its 50 millimetre horizontal and 30 millimetre vertical frame members, along with 25 millimetre stiles and 90 millimetre rails, the system minimises the framing and maximises the glass area to allow for optimum light transmission and vision.

PYROSEC E Door balances dependable performance with elegant aesthetics, with the framing available in stainless steel or finished in any RAL colour. Another advantage of this E rated glass door system versus integrity and insulation (EI) alternatives is the ability to incorporate a full height or “through glass” handle – often a popular design preference in contemporary interiors, but not easily achieved where the glass door is EI-rated.

The aesthetic benefits are extended further as it will integrate seamlessly with over panels and unlimited butt-jointed side screens. This means equivalent integrity-only E performance can be achieved throughout the complete glazing element with the benefit of Promat UK’s 360-degree ‘wheel of assurance’ – this offers complete traceability from raw material sourcing and manufacture to installation and post-completion checking in line with the golden thread.

Cath McLean, Sales Manager – Glass at Promat UK, said, “PYROSEC E Door is ideal for meeting the design requirements in projects where the passive fire protection strategy does not require glass fire doors to offer insulation and integrity (EI) protection. That could make this new product suitable for a large number of projects, giving architects and specifiers a new dimension when it comes to new build and refurbishment projects.”

The E30 and E60-rated PYROSEC E Door is part of a wide range of fire resistant glazing and door solutions available from Promat. Sister products, PYROSEC Door and PYROSEC SLIMLITE Door, are similarly attractive glass door systems which offer an EI (integrity and insulation) rating of 30 or 60 minutes, and Promat also provides timber fire rated doors sets offering the same EI performance.

All these doors can be specified with Promat SYSTEMGLAS®, a range of fire resistant glazing that has been at the forefront of the market for over thirty years. This includes the Ferro steel frame system, a timber framing option with Ligna, and systems that allow for the frame to be concealed within surrounding walls and floors or painted/over-clad through the use of PROMATECT® H for the framing.
