Passive fire protection specialist Promat UK has launched the PYROSEC E Door range, a solution which offers assured E-rated ‘integrity-only’ fire resistance of up to 60 minutes.
Available in single, pair or ‘leaf and half’ configurations, the PYROSEC E Door is suitable for a wide variety of applications where the fire strategy allows for integrity-only performance. With its 50mm horizontal and 30mm vertical frame members, along with 25mm stiles and 90mm rails, the system minimises the framing and maximises the glass area to allow for optimum light transmission and vision.
PYROSEC E Door balances performance with aesthetics, with the framing available in stainless steel or finished in any RAL colour. This E rated glass door system can incorporate a full height or “through glass” handle – often a popular design preference in contemporary interiors, but not easily achieved where the glass door is EI-rated.
Traceability of materials
The aesthetic benefits are extended further as it will integrate seamlessly with over panels and unlimited butt-jointed side screens. This means equivalent integrity-only E performance can be achieved throughout the complete glazing element with the benefit of Promat UK’s 360-degree ‘wheel of assurance’ – this offers complete traceability from raw material sourcing and manufacture to installation and post-completion checking in line with the golden thread.
The E30 and E60-rated PYROSEC E Door is part of a wide range of fire resistant glazing and door solutions available from Promat including sister products, PYROSEC Door and PYROSEC SLIMLITE Door. These are similarly attractive glass door systems with minimal steel framing and maximised glass, but they offer an EI (integrity and insulation) rating of 30 or 60 minutes.
Cath McLean, sales manager at Glass at Promat UK said: “PYROSEC E Door is ideal for meeting the design requirements in projects where the passive fire protection strategy does not require glass fire doors to offer insulation and integrity (EI) protection. That could make this new product suitable for a large number of projects, giving architects and specifiers a new dimension when it comes to new build and refurbishment projects.”
All these glass doors can be specified with Promat SYSTEMGLAS®, a range of fire resistant glazing that has been at the forefront of the market for over thirty years. This includes the Ferro steel frame system, a timber framing option with Ligna, and systems that allow for the frame to be concealed within surrounding walls and floors or painted/over-clad through the use of PROMATECT® H for the framing.
