Promat launches Pyrosec E Door range

Passive fire protection specialist, Promat UK, has launched the Pyrosec E Door range, a versatile solution which offers assured E-rated ‘integrity-only’ fire resistance of up to 60 minutes.

Available in single, pair or ‘leaf and half’ configurations, the Pyrosec E Door is ideal for a wide variety of applications where the fire strategy allows for integrity-only performance.

With its 50mm horizontal and 30mm vertical frame members, along with 25mm stiles and 90mm rails, the system has been designed to maximise the glass area.

The framing is available in stainless steel or finished in any RAL colour. According to Promat UK, another advantage of this E rated glass door system versus integrity and insulation (EI) alternatives is the ability to incorporate a full height or ‘through glass’ handle – said to be a popular design preference in contemporary interiors, but not easily achieved where the glass door is EI-rated.

The Pyrosec E Door range will also integrate seamlessly with over panels and unlimited butt-jointed side screens. This means equivalent integrity-only E performance can be achieved throughout the complete glazing element with the benefit of Promat UK’s 360-degree ‘wheel of assurance’ – this offers complete traceability from raw material sourcing and manufacture to installation and post-completion checking in line with the golden thread.

Cath McLean, sales manager – Glass at Promat UK said: “Pyrosec E Door is ideal for meeting the design requirements in projects where the passive fire protection strategy does not require glass fire doors to offer insulation and integrity (EI) protection. That could make this new product suitable for a large number of projects, giving architects and specifiers a new dimension when it comes to new build and refurbishment projects.”

The E30 and E60-rated Pyrosec E Door is part of a range of fire resistant glazing and door solutions available from Promat. Sister products, Pyrosec Door and Pyrosec Slimlite door, offer an EI (integrity and insulation) rating of 30 or 60 minutes, and Promat also provides timber fire rated doors sets offering the same EI performance.

All these doors can be specified with Promat Systemglas, a range of fire resistant glazing. This includes the Ferro steel frame system, a timber framing option with Ligna, and systems that allow for the frame to be concealed within surrounding walls and floors or painted/over-clad through the use of Promatect H for the framing.
