Trade supplier IronmongeryDirect has added the FrameFit fire door remediation system to its fire rated range of over 1,400 stocked products. This fully tested solution is designed to bring non-compliant fire doors to full compliance quickly and easily.
It is estimated that around 30 million non-compliant fire doors in the UK pose a significant risk, with 80% failing due to excessive gaps between the door and frame. However, replacing an entire fire door when it fails can be costly. FrameFit addresses this problem as a cost-effective, straightforward solution to ensure fire doors meet the stringent standards set by BS 476-22:1987 or BS EN 1634-1:2014.
Seal for fire doors
FrameFit is a fully tested, high expansion fire and smoke seal for existing fire doors with excessive gaps between the door and frame. This gap must be no more than 4mm for the door perimeter, while the door base gap must be no more than 10mm for fire doors or 3mm for fire and smoke doors. Supplied in kit form in 5.2m long rolls of 1.5, 3 and 5mm thickness for differing gap sizes, FrameFit brings defective, nominal and notional fire doors into compliance quickly and easily on site.
Roland Etheridge, category manager at IronmongeryDirect said: “Gaps can occur in fire doors for several reasons, including the age of the doorset, incorrect installation or through general wear and tear. FrameFit is a game changer, particularly for care homes, HMOs, hospitals, schools, social housing and hotels, as it provides a cost-effective and efficient way to bring non-compliant doors into compliance without costly replacements.”
