With a newly tested fire-resistant overhead door, Protec Industrial Doors is introducing a fire door that will be competing with all door variations already available. This new fire-resistant door has huge benefits with regard to certification, pricing, weight and areas of application.
The door has been tested at Efectis/TNO/Peutz and achieved the EI1 60-minute classification, which means that this door is ahead of legislation and in all cases can be used without discussion in all situations where a fire door is required. Whether it concerns the storage of hazardous substances or a regular fire-retarding wall, this door hardly has any limitations.
In many cases the applications already used will be replaced by NEN-EN 1624-1, meaning that additional requirements will apply to the solution chosen by you. In many specifications and specification texts this is still being included incorrectly, as a result of which end users and purchasing parties are forced by the Fire Brigade, insurance companies and municipal bodies to replace the doors before the building is opened for service.
Because all the benefits of an overhead door are also incorporated in this door, there are hardly any usage limitations relating to the area of application, in outer walls, or usage, this is almost unlimited. Provisions such as a power cut function, a combination with a liquid-retention barrier and ATEX facilities are also possible.
A variation of this fire-resistant door has also been tested and certified with a sound-insulating value of 38 dB, as a result of which this fire-resistant and sound-insulating door has a unique area of application outside of regular fire-retarding walls. Examples include theatres, test rooms, production areas and power stations.
