Passive fire protection systems specialist Promat UK has developed two new steel framed glazed door systems and a timber door set to provide specifiers with assured fire safety solutions in domestic, public and commercial buildings.
The new steel frame doors, PYROSEC Door and PYROSEC SLIMLITE, allow fire doors to be integrated into fire resistance screens and partitions with ease – maximising light transmission and vision without compromising safety. Both are designed to integrate with the Promat SYSTEMGLAS Ferro fire resistant glazing system, which provides architects and specifiers with a complete glazing solution backed by third party test evidence and Promat’s 360-degree ‘Wheel of Assurance’.
PYROSEC Door provides strong aesthetic appeal with large vision panels. It is available in a single or double leaf configuration, with minimal stainless steel frame members and compatibility with a full complement of over panels and side screens that allow for clear butt joint glazing.
For those applications where a slimmer frame is sought, PYROSEC SLIMLITE will meet the brief. The glass area is maximised thanks to a super-slim 20mm frame section, 25mm stiles and 90mm rails, making it one of the most slimline fire rated doors available in the UK.
The third new fire door from Promat, a timber door set, offers the same fire resistance as the two PYROSEC options for applications where a traditional timber solution is required. It integrates seamlessly with the Promat SYSTEMGLAS Ligna glazing system, which is widely used in all kinds of traditional and contemporary interiors.
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. Key to the ‘golden thread’ approach being adopted by the construction industry more broadly, this means Promat can provide a post-installation certificate of conformity because it is in control of the whole supply process, from raw material sourcing, design and manufacture to installation.
Cath McLean, Segment Manager – 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.”
