Fire safety can be enhanced by New Fire Rated Sliding Doors have been launched for the industrial and commercial construction sectors. Compliant to BS EN 120 and BS EN 240, the single-leaf fire sliding doors, by door providor Hörmann UK are available in two variations. There is the FST 120-1 BS Fire Sliding Door offering 120-minute fire resistance. There is also the FST 2410-1 BS providing 240-minute fire resistance.

The two latest models are an extension of Hörmann UK’s product portfolio of sliding doors. These fire safety doors are availble with a range of optional additions to meet the requirements of each individual specification.

Paul Tulley, Key Account Manager for Hörmann UK, said: “Our new Fire Rated Sliding Doors, which are compliant to British Standards, are a key addition to our extensive range of fire rated sliding and functional doors. They are suitable for installation across a wide range of developments and industries. The steel or stainless-steel doors can withstand heavy usage cycles with ease. This is due to their quality of construction.”

The doors can be operated in conjunction with an FSA-Basis hold-open device control centre, which combines the power supply, warning signals, fire detector evaluation, manual release button and reset device in a compact housing.

This is supported by LED lamps or acoustic signals, which communicate the status and alarm states of the door. Additional safety elements, including fire detectors, magnets, recess flaps and fire alarm systems can also be quickly connected for easy integration.

The doors can also be operated utilising Hörmann UK’s FSA-Plus hold-open device control centre, which features a battery backup for reliable operation, even in the event of power failures.

The doors are also compatible with Hörmann UK’s SupraMatic operators, which provide fast opening and closing and are also available with soft start and soft stop available as standard, delivering gentle and quiet door travel. In case of fire, a patented compensator release system will unlock the operator, enabling the door to be closed via weights.
