Intumescent Strips for Door Frames

Fire doors great, Intumescent Strips better

It’s no big secret that anyone who has paying guests need to be compliant with the rules on fire safety.

The official guide written by the Home Office, in conjunction with The Chief Fire Officer’s Association quote that although it doesn’t name specific measures per se, you must adequately “manage the overall risk of a fire”. Whether you rent a room on Air BnB or have a fullbown hotel.

A good practice for this is to install a quality fire door installed with Fire Rated Ironmongery and associated fittings. All doors naturally have a gap between the door and its outer frame. In the case of a fire, the extreme heat of fire and smoke can still get through.

The solution for this is to fit intumescent strips in the gap of each door frame. Then if a fire should occur, the seals expand and seal off the vulnerability of any gaps, protecting you, your customers, their property and even your business.

Hotel Lock and Safe provide a range of Intumescent strips, seals, mastics, foams and architectural ironmongery to keep you protected and compliant with the rules. Contact us today for a quote/demo.

Panic bars:  It is a legal requirement for every commercial building to provide both an escape route and a final exit door, in the event of a fire.  The panic bar consists of a spring loaded meal bar that unlatches the door enabling a quick exit.  these are normally fitted horizontally across the final escape door.

Door handles – Chances are you have touched a door handle already today.  These are vital for general operation of any door in use.  The models can vary from basic use to security, opened by a key or a keycard.

Hinges – an essential part of door operation but often overlooked.  There are many hinges available from ballbearing hinges, ideal for reducing fiction for heavy doors to spring loaded ideal for everyday use.
