Norseal Hardware Kits Save Time and Hassle on Site

Hundreds of FD30 fire doors at a historic hotel in London’s Piccadilly have been fitted with a variety of Norseal intumescent and fire-rated products.

Many of the products were made bespoke by Norseal, to make the job quicker, easier and trouble-free for specialist joinery and interior fit-out contractor NBJ (London) Limited.

London’s iconic Piccadilly Hotel, later Le Méridien Piccadilly recently re-named as The Dilly is currently undergoing an impressive restoration and transformation programme. The hotel, at 21 Piccadilly, Mayfair, dates back to 1908 and this latest transformation sees The Dilly redefined and restored to distinctive London style. 

The hotel incorporates 283 rooms and suites, various restaurants and food outlets, a health club and spa, a dance studio, and seven meeting rooms. Designers for the project, Aspinall Creative, have taken inspiration from the heritage of the city of London with strong design connections to an age of elegance and the hotel’s cosmopolitan heritage.

Joinery contractors NBJ, working on phase one of the restoration project, installed over two hundred FD30 fire doors on bedroom doors at the Dilly Hotel using a variety of products from Norseal to maintain fire integrity throughout. As well as a variety of intumescent strip seals, NBJ fitted Norseal’s NOR810 single actuated bottom edge drop seal for its acoustic and smoke rating.

A significant benefit for NBJ installation was Norseal’s intumescent lock kits, cut to bespoke size for the hotel room door locks, saving NBJ time, money and hassle on site. 

Craig Smith from NBJ says: 
“We always get great service from Norseal and these Interdens lock kits certainly saved us a great deal of time on such a large project, and we were always confident that they would be perfect every time.” 
“Having the pre-cut intumescent kits, along with intumescent strip – in white to match the doors – drop seals and fire rated door viewers all from one place delivered without fail on time was a great help to us in getting these doors completed to the highest standards on time to meet the project’s tight deadlines.”
Norseal supplies a variety of low-pressure graphite and Interdens intumescent sealing solutions for a variety of ironmongery products including hinges, flush bolts, door closers, and locks, all designed to help prevent the transfer of heat through door hardware during a fire. 

In accordance with BS 476-22, they provide up to 120-minute fire resistance and can be designed and bespoke in-house so they are right first time, every time and did not need to be cut or adjusted on site.

The NOR810 is a single actuated bottom edge drop seal for acoustic and fire-rated timber doorsets. It has been tested to one million cycles to all appropriate standards and is available in thirteen lengths as standard from 320-1535mm. In addition, Norseal can cut accurately to any length using Europe’s first custom-made drop seal cutting machine. 

The machine will cut any drop seal to the exact size needed, ready for next day delivery, without damaging it, keeping the fire, smoke and acoustic integrity of the door intact. Every door seal cut to size by Norseal comes with a one million cycle guarantee.
