Complete fire compliance
ERA is supplying a portfolio of fire door hardware and decorative furniture, which has been independently tested to the latest standards, in a bid to help fabricators deliver compliant fire doorsets.
Following the release of the Hackitt Report, Building Safety Bill, and formation of the new National Construction Products Regulator, ERA has extended its longstanding commitment to third party testing and certification by independently testing the suite of products to FD30 BS 476, FD30 EN 1634 and FD60 BS 476.
The complementary portfolio includes ERA’s Fortress 3-Star cylinder, SureFire multi-point lock, door viewer, door chain and numerals, in addition to the Fab&Fix Balmoral door handles, Windsor door handles and Nu Mail letterplate.
This provides fabricators with a comprehensive package of hardware and decorative furniture that delivers unrivalled levels of security, while providing an effective barrier to fire for up to 60 minutes for most timber doors, the company said.
Central to the fire door solution is ERA’s Surefire Classic and Heritage multi-point locks, which can be supplied with an intumescent kit, specifically for fabrication with fire doors. PAS 24 accredited, the multi-point lock provides a highly secure solution that automatically fires all locking points when the door is closed. The door is then fully secured by deadlocking the ERA 3-Star maximum security cylinder.
Stuart Costigan, product manager for ERA, said: “Door manufacturers shouldn’t have to compromise on visual appeal or functionality to ensure compliance, and by extending our range of independently tested solutions, we can assist fabricators in ensuring the highest levels of fire safety performance, not just for today, but for the future.”
