The FDS Complete™ Plus Range with enhanced security in FD30(S) and FD60(S) single and double doorsets with the option of screens and panels all tested as a complete doorset.

Construction

This robust range is tailored to suit your building structure openings. It comprises a beautifully finished 54mm or 44mm engineered timber core door leaf and hardwood frame. The doorset is tested with all hardware and signage in full scale tests.

Anti-vandalism Features

The concealed overhead door closer prevents wanton damage and breakage from misuse. The door closer is factory fitted and tested to ensure smooth operation and quiet closure. Stainless steel hinges with security studs are factory fitted to ensure the correct tolerance.

 

The 3tiervision™panel is positioned to prevent deliberate breakage. The system is designed to withstand a high level of accidental or wanton path damage. It has sustained axe attacks, after which the doorset has been able to function as it should. The glazing system is fitted with security screws to enable replacement should it become necessary. The glazing in both the door and side screens is coded. The glazing in both the door and side screens is coded.

 

Smoke Control

All intumescent seals are factory fitted in line are fitted in line with doorset design and testing. These seals effectively resist the passage of smoke. This is because they are  manufactured from a material that is unaffected by moisture or atmospheric carbon dioxide making them less prone to degradation which in turn causes ineffectiveness.

It is important that the seals are fitted correctly for all areas: frame, glazing, hinges and door leaf.  The automatic drop down seal  is an important feature of the doorset design.  This requires no electrical  connection and automatically drops down during the last few millimeters  of the door closing, thus preventing the passage of smoke between the  bottom of the leaf and the floor. Fully intumescent-lined, it acts together with  the doorset edge to provide conformity to EN1634-3:2004 and is in line with BS9999:2008.

Interlocking Frames

The FDS Complete™ Range is designed with interlocking frames to enable easy fitting on site and to assist with the correct installation of the doorset and its side or top screens/panels.

When replacing an old door with a new tested and certified fire doorset, it is important that the top and/or side panels perform to the same required level. The level of compartmentation needs to be maintained, so top and side panels whether glazed or solid, need to perform effectively to the required level of 60 minutes or 30 minutes.

The FDS Complete™ Range offers glazed and solid, side and top panels subject to measurements that are within the full scale fire tests and test reports under the certification scheme.

 

This means:

  • The doorset is tailored to specific requirements

  • The doorset gives a complete solution that meets Fire, Smoke, Safety and Acoustic standards

  • Installation is precise and efficient owing to the specialised interlocking system.
