Award winning partnership

Seeing ODL Europe win the Best New Product of The Year at The G21 Awards for their Guardsman Composite Fire Door was recognition of a journey that has started some years earlier and a partnership with Winkhaus that has existed for far longer.
At the centre of the relationship is a passion to develop innovative solutions. In the case of the Guardsman Fire Doorset, a solution that is fully compliant with the latest legislation. 

This includes testing to and above the requirements of building regulations and Q Mark 3rd party audited through design and manufacture of the doorset, survey and installation. The full lifecycle of the door can also be 3rd party audited. 

The Winkhaus technical team, led by Winkhaus UK’s Technical Director, Chris Flaherty, have been heavily involved from the start.  

This included the development of the technical specifications and drawings to the creation of the Field of Application and training of fabricators as they prepare to manufacture.

The finished doorset includes both the Winkhaus AV2 autolocking system and Winkhaus FireFrame, a specially developed GRP (Glass Reinforced Polymer) frame system with high fire resistance properties.

Ian Glenister, Technical Sales Manager at ODL Europe, said: 
“Our collaboration with Winkhaus on our Guardsman Fire Door project has been very successful.  Winkhaus share the same vision as ODL Europe and value the importance of developing solutions that exceed current legislation.  Their focus and commitment have been an important part of the journey and one that has resulted in delivering the best in composite fire door safety.”
Ian continued: “This is just the start of the journey as we continue to partner with Winkhaus, ensuring our award-winning position is maintained, with constant expansion of test evidence and third-party certification.”
Chris Flaherty concluded: “Congratulations again for the deserved recognition and a toast to our next decade of partnership and innovation.”
