New Hardware Kits take the confusion out of Fire Door Specification

A new complete range of fire door kits are available for installers looking to fit fire doors in commercial buildings, but are unsure about which door hardware they should use.

Fire doors are a life-saving feature, engineered to hold back flames and smoke allowing evacuation and access routes to remain clear for fire and rescue services, and helping to protect people and property. It is imperative that all fire door installations comply with fire safety regulations to ensure they perform as stated in the event of a fire.

HOPPE (UK) has worked alongside Doras Distributors and Spanish fire door manufacturer Norma Doors Technologies, to create a fully compliant fire door solution for non-specialist installers.

Installers will be able to simply choose from a selection of Norma FD30 doors, find the corresponding architectural ironmongery kit, and then they will have everything they need for a fully compliant fire door.

There are five fire door hardware kits designed to meet the needs of commercial buildings. Available to buy off the shelf from builders’ merchants, installers can purchase kits for use on corridor doors (both locking and non-locking), bathroom doors, office doors and deadlocking doors.

Ged Ryan, CEO of HOPPE (UK), said:
“We know that choosing products for fire doors can be very confusing. With various test sheets, symbols and quality marks it is difficult to know which products work together, or where they can and can’t be used. Our aim is to make the process as quick and easy as possible, so that installers can get on with the job with complete confidence that the fire door assembly is compliant.”

As standard, the kit contains a sash lock; a lever handle on a sprung rose; a pull handle; a euro profile cylinder with turn; stainless steel hinges; escutcheons; cylinder pull; disabled bathroom turn and release; fire door keep locked or keep shut sign; overhead door closer; single cylinder and two intumescent packs, but some kits may contain additional items depending on where the door will be fitted.

The fire door kit has been tested specifically for use on Norma FD30 fire doors to both European and British standards, and is third-party certificated by Certifire and Ensatec, so installers can be confident that the fire door will perform as stated on the box.
