The future of building design is clear with GLAS-DOR
Robust UK is launching their new glazed fire resistant steel profile and doorsets. ‘GLAS-DOR’ can provide up to 2 hours of fire resistance with a core of fire resistant insulation for glazed doors, sliding doors, partition walls and window sections.
The introduction of GLAS-DOR brings new opportunities for building design, as Paul Williams, Sales Director at Robust UK, explains:
“Building on the experience and knowledge from over 20 years trading history with our sister company in Sweden, we are very pleased to be able to offer the new Robust GLAS-DOR system.
“Architects and building engineers can now specify fully glazed steel doors and wall partitions in areas that need to meet fire and security requirements and is perfect for use in offices, shopping centres, airports, hotels, hospitals, schools and similar public buildings.”
The doors and wall partitions are built using the Stalprofil SP35000 and SP76000 systems. Both carry a variety of UK and European test evidence for fire, security and acoustic performance which Robust will be adding to with a programme of UK specific testing.
Robust fire resistant sections in steel have been tested in accordance with BS476: Part 22: 1987 for wall sections up to 120 minutes integrity and insulation, doorsets up to 90 minutes integrity and 60 minutes insulation as well as double leaf sliding doors with top and side lights for 30 minutes integrity.
GLAS-DOR Door and Wall Sections can make up the fire cell partitions in, for example, corridors, main passageways and stairwells used as evacuation routes in the event of a fire. The solid fire-resistant insulating core between the steel profiles effectively reduces heat transfer from the side of the door or wall exposed to the fire.
The systems can be adapted to suit requirements and are type approved, with features including finger trap gaskets, round windows and arches. The systems have profiles adapted for modular locks (85 mm) as well as narrow (20 mm) and wide (130, 180 and 260 mm) profiles. These tested and approved systems also come in a wide variety of heights and widths. Wall sections up to 3.45m height and with a free edge have been tested as per EN 1364-1 to ensure compliance up to EI 120, and 4 metres height sections up to EI 60.
Robust GLAS-DOR is manufactured in Robust’s brand new facility located at their headquarters in
Stoke-on-Trent and is available made-to-measure.
