FD30 and FD60 Fire and Security Door set Solutions

Winkhaus helps door set suppliers to comply with BOTH Security and Fire regulations

Hardware specialist Winkhaus illustrate how their Fire and Security door set - test evidence solution achieved using a combination of  their AV2 or AV3 auto locking system with industry leading  composite or timber veneered door leaf, will help fabricators meet both the changes introduced by the Approved Document Q (Security), and the EN1634 – 30 or 60 minute fire and smoke resistance performance requirements.

Winkhaus have invested extensively in fire and security test evidence to achieve“Q Mark Fire” and “Q Mark Security” certification scheme compliance.  This evidence in line with latest SBD and DCLG guidelines can be made available to the door set supplier.

The Part Q Security requirements of the UK building regulations add considerable pressure on a manufacturing business. 

The changes will require all doors supplied to projects that require planning permission to have achieved the PAS24 security standard, or comply with a number of other requirements aimed at improving security levels.

CE marking regulations for fire door sets have also been introduced, (co-existence period until September 2019). The regulation stipulates that all fire doors should comply with the EN 1634 fire and smoke test requirement, as opposed to the original  BS compliance.

CE marking also requires that doors are manufactured within an independently audited factory production control or “certification scheme”.  As CE marking falls into the responsibility of those placing the product on the market, fabricators could be faced with a long period of costly testing.

The Winkhaus  Fire and Security door set - test evidence solution will considerably reduce  both the fabricator’s costs and time spent to achieve compliance.

To satisfy different market demands Winkhaus have test evidence with two different outer frame materials.
Winkhaus have introduced FireFrame ®, a low maintenance, fully finished frame system (No painting required) or traditional timber frame solutions both of which have been designed for FD30 and FD60 fire compliance and PAS 024 compliance.

Both FireFrame® and timber frame options have been tested with the Winkhaus range of AV2 and AV3 auto locking systems. Further options include FD30 and FD60 composite door leafs and 44mm or 54mm internal or external grade timber veneered door leafs. Single leaf door assemblies with side or fan light glazing, and double door assemblies with door leafs up to 2800mm high.

The Winkhaus fire and security door set solutions using the Winkhaus AV2 or AV3 range of multipoint auto-locks are available as an off the shelf fully tested solution for both fabricator’s and specifiers to choose an easy route to assured compliance.
