Promat UK Helps Fire Door Manufacturers and Installers Raise the Bar

Promat PYROSEC Doors

Fire door manufacturers and installers can reduce the risk of inappropriate or untested materials being used in their fire rated doorsets through Promat UK’s wide range of technically advanced finished products, raw materials and components, all under one roof.

As a leading manufacturer of fire, thermal and acoustic solutions for the door and fire-resistant glazing sectors, Promat has a unique perspective and range of products to meet different customer requirements along the construction supply chain.

For clients seeking a complete manufactured and installed solution, Promat offers fully glazed steel framed doors in its PYROSEC® Doors range, plus fire rated timber doorsets. Both solutions give customers traceability and the peace of mind that their bespoke fire doors are designed and manufactured under Promat’s control, and installation can also be checked for conformity.

Promat PYROSEC® Doors are available as single or double options with EI30 or EI60 fire protection available. They are also designed to integrate into the Promat SYSTEMGLAS® range of fire-resistant glazing systems, which provides glazing for numerous applications in four different framing options.

The Promat timber fire door is also designed for use with SYSTEMGLAS®, specifically the Ligna timber frame glazing system. This contemporary passive fire protection solution allows stylish timber glazed features to be created with integrated single or double fire doors offering EI60 performance.

For door manufacturers, Promat also represents a ‘one-stop shop’ solution for components and raw materials – helping them reduce risk given its ability to provide key structural materials for the doorset’s construction to meet the required performance standards.


Importantly too, Promat’s wealth of technical expertise can help with the design and specification of products, ensuring they are integrated into the doorset in the correct way to meet the performance expectations, from FD30 up to FD120.

Promat UK’s range includes several options for glazed panels, including PYROSEC® glass, along with PROMSEAL® PL strip for intumescent seals and a non-combustible calcium silicate fire protection board, PROMATECT® H. This can be used to form the core material of fire doors as well as provide insulation strips where required in an assembly. It can also, in certain conditions, be used to provide extra insulation to enable the upgrading of doors.


Cath McLean, Segment Manager at Promat UK says: 
“Remember that a fire doorset is considered in its entirety, so only ‘tested’ materials must be used in its construction, and these must be those prescribed in the test.
“There is no scope for substitution of tested materials, because this may seriously affect the overall performance of the doorset in the event of a fire. This is a reputational risk that no professional doorset manufacturer can afford to take.
“Unfortunately, if you source fire protection materials from numerous suppliers, such as the glass from one place and the frame and intumescent seals from another, this is what can result. That’s why Promat UK, as a single-source supplier, takes away the ambiguity and helps manufacturers deliver dependable fire doors.”
