New fire doorsets are aiming to make apartment entrance fire doors visually appealing as well as safe and secure.
XL Joinery has launched Simpli Advanced® range of high-performance fire doorsets which combine oak door manufacturing with hardware from ASSA ABLOY.
Mark Kilbride, technical manager at XL Joinery, comments: “Fire doors are traditionally seen as more functional than attractive, but when it comes to living spaces, aesthetics are an important consideration – after all, no one wants an unsightly door in their home. That’s why we’ve launched the Simpli Advanced® range. It combines our beautiful FSC® certified doors with the highest specification safety and security components to create a solution that offers style and safety in equal measure.”
The doorsets range are available in a choice of styles and can be matched to XL Joinery’s wide range of internal door designs – including Suffolk, Palermo and Monza – and the oak, handle, viewer and intumescent seal are all available in a choice of finishing options.
Available with either FD30 or FD60 fire protection, the doors offer protection against fire. Batwing® drop and perimeter seals from Lorient work together to prevent the passage of smoke and fire to other parts of the building, while the closing force of the ASSA ABLOY door closer ensures reliable closing every time.
Simpli Advanced® also provides security. The PAS24 and Secured By Design-approved Yale Platinum three Star Cylinder delivers protection against the common attack method of lock-snapping, and for added protection, the FD60 option features the Yale Lockmaster lock and deadbolt.
Mark continues: “The different components on the doors work hand in hand to maintain integrity during a fire and keep intruders out. As well as this, the fact that they all come pre-fitted means the doors can be installed in as little as 20 minutes – leading to considerable time and cost savings for installers, especially on quick-build construction projects.
“Another benefit of this is that it serves to reassure everyone in the supply chain that the doorsets are fully compliant, since they have been pre-assembled by the experts and are third-party accredited.
“As with all our products, the Simpli Advanced® range comes with our 10-year manufacturing guarantee, which means it will always be backed up by our dedicated support team, who are also on hand to help with any technical and installation advice that may be required.”
