Radiology Doorset

Up to 2 hours fire-resistance

The Fire Resistant Glass Door steel fire-resistant sections have been tested in accordance with EN 1634-1.

Wall sections offer up to 120 mins integrity and insulation, door sets up to 90 minutes of integrity and 60 minutes of insulation. Double-leaf sliding doors can now offer up to 30 minutes integrity and insulation.

Door and wall sections make up the fire cell partitions in, for example, corridors, main passageways and stairwells used as evacuation routes in the event of a fire. The solid fire-resistant insulating core between the steel profiles effectively reduces heat transfer from the side of the door or wall exposed to the fire.

Combined fire and security resistance

The Fire Resistant Glass Door system is type-approved for fire-resistance in combination with burglary resistance, e.g. EI 60 and PAS 24. Fire-resistance is provided in accordance with the applicable type approval certificate. Burglary resistance classes are in accordance with standard ENV 1627.

The type approval certificates mean that “labelled” sections can be used to comply with specific requirements for fire and burglary resistance with a transparent solution in stairwells, for instance. It is also possible to move exterior protection from an entrance and also comply with these requirements in stairwells, for example, that may may separate various activities.

The profile depth can be adjusted to suit specific requirements, e.g. 65, 70 and 90 mm.

In addition to requirements for fire-resistance, glass must also comply with requirements for burglary resistance as per EN 356 as well as fittings. Type-approved solutions include, among other things, multipoint locks (MPL).

Unique Fire-Resistant Sliding

These doors have been developed and tested a type-approved 30/30 fire-resistant glazed sliding door to EN 1634-1. The door is operated using Besam Unislide (including LD 550494). Max section dimensions 10m x 3m, and the max door leaf dimensions are 1250mm. This provides a max opening of 2210mm for bi-parting sliding doors.

Please note that door leaves in sliding doors must not pass over any vertical element as there is a risk of damages. Sliding doors must not be installed along evacuation routes, and if required, an emergency exit door should be installed at the side.
