Certifire approval

The Soterian TS008 letterplate from UAP has achieved Certifire approval.

Independently tested by Warringtonfire Testing and Certification, the letterplate is certified for FD30 and FD60 timber doorsets.

The Soterian is approved for use with a variety of door assemblies: timber-faced and edged door leaves with a solid cellulosic core in a timber, metal or composite frames having fire resistance of 30 and 60 minutes, depending on letterplate assembly.

As a complete letterplate system with an integral intumescent liner material, The Soterian, part of the company’s Salamander product range, can be fitted to endure fire attack from either face.

The TS008 letterplate was approved on the basis of initial type testing, a design appraisal against TS32, certification of Quality Management System to ISO 9001:2008 and inspection and surveillance of factory production control; and certified in accordance with TS00 General Requirements for Certification of Fire Protection Products.

UAP is also inviting timber door manufacturers to visit its head office in Whitefield, Manchester, to learn more about its fire-rated hardware products.
