Fire Door Fittings

Product

  1. Hinges
    You will need a minimum of 3 hinges (depending on door height) to securely connect the door to the door frame. Hafele’s Stainless Steel Butt Hinge has two high quality ball bearing race joints and an ANSI hole pattern; ideal for internal application. These hinges are CE marked and compliant with BS EN 1935.

     
  2. Intumescent Hinge pads
    Hinge pads should be fitted into the door cut outs before the hinges are fitted. These pads are fire rated for 30 and 60 minutes and are unaffected by moisture, humidity or pollution. View the product here. These Intumescent hinge pads are compliant with BS 476 part 22 and tested in accordance with BS EN 1634-1

 

  1. Door Closer
    Door closers fitted to fire doors must be CE marked and be tested to EN 1154 – this is a mandatory requirement under the Construction Product Regulation. All fire doors need to be fitted with a door closer when they are not FDKL (Fire Door Keep Locked), this is to keep the doors shut and stop a fire from spreading. Our door closers are available in aluminium, stainless steel, polished brass or silver coloured lacquer finishes.

 

  1. Mortice Lock
    Should the door require locking, our Startec Mortice Sash Lock is available, and can have a square or radius forend. The lock is CE marked and is compliant with EN 12209:2003.

 

  1. Intumescent Fire Protection Kit for Lock Mortice
    This fire protection kit protects the lock mortice when exposed to hot temperatures. It is recommended that you use the kit that provides fire resistance for your door type. The kit is available for 30 and 60 minutes.

 

  1. Lever Handle
    The sash lock would be operated with a lever handle to make exiting through the door as accessible as possible. Our Lever Handle set, available in polished or satin finish, is available for two thicknesses of door and is fire rated for 30 and 60 minutes. This lever handle set is compliant with BS EN 190

 

  1. Euro Profile Cylinder
    The dead bolt would be operated with a euro profile cylinder. Dependent on selection you can have a key both sides, or a key & turn. We stock a large range of cylinders, and are also able to provide a master key suite if required.

 

  1. Fire Door Keep Shut Sign
    Your fire door will require two “Fire Door Keep Shut” signs, one on either side of the door, so that everyone that enters or exits the door is aware that they must shut the door behind them. These signs should be positioned above eye level to increase visibility. Our Keep Shut Signs are available in a range of materials. This signage conforms to BS 5499 pt.5:2002.
    The intumescent strip is normally supplied with by the door & frame manufacture, however should you require these items please view them here.

 

 

When it comes to fire doors, remember this advice from the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers;

 

  • Hang it
  • Close it
  • Lock it
  • Furnish it
  • Protect it

We can also help you correctly specify additional hardware such as door protection plates, door stops, finger protection etc. should these be required.
