Fire door advance
Astraseal now manufactures fire doors using FireFrame, the 60-minute fire door frame from Winkhaus.
The new FireFrame, which offers slim internal sightlines, will be paired with both Astraseal’s PVCU door set from Rehau, and its composite door slab from Distinction.
“For us, it was a no-brainer to switch to the Winkhaus FireFrame,” Zac Nedimovic, Astraseal’s sales and marketing manager, said. “The FireFrame is a smart, high-performance solution which for us is easier to fabricate and is more cost-effective, allowing us to reduce our lead times, deliver competitive prices, and ensure the fast turnaround our customers come to expect.
“It’s no secret with the tragedy of Grenfell Tower that everyone is questioning their fire rated products and looking for something that they can assure their customers is of first-class quality. Upgrading to Winkhaus’s FireFrame strengthens our FD60 offering and ensures our door range not only complies with FIRAS assessment for both FD30 and FD60 but also with Approved Document Q and PAS24.”
