JELD-WEN New Flat & Apartment Entrance Doorset Helps Enhance Fire Safety

JELD-WEN has expanded its range of SecureFit doorsets by introducing a new 60 minute fire-rated flat and apartment entrance doorset, to meet the demand from developers and social landlords for this specification.

Following the tragic fire that caused death and injury in a block of flats in London in Summer 2009, many local authorities and private landlords are upgrading their flat and apartment entrance doors to minimise the risks and provide a safer living environment for residents.

JELD-WEN’s new FD60 SecureFit Flat entrance doorsets are available in popular real wood veneers, including ash, oak and beech. The 54mm thick doors also meet with Secured by Design accreditation, which is the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) approved standard for doorsets that offer greater protection against intruder attack.

Chris Miller, Product Manager for JELD-WEN, said: “Fire safety is a major concern in apartments and the new specification for our entrance door range is already much in demand with specifiers, developers and social landlords. This exciting new specification has all the features that have made the range popular with housebuilders, as it comes in an easy-to-fit format, with all handles, lock and keep supplied, minimising installation time. It also provides occupants with the added peace of mind that they are protected from intruder entry and from the effects of smoke and flame.”

The main advantage of these doorsets is that they speed up installation and result in a premium quality fit. They also have a concealed solid and reliable fixing system through the frame into the wall, which is a requirement for fire resistant doors.

SecureFit entrance doorsets are supplied with an adjustable acoustic drop seal to the bottom of the door and viewer already fitted as standard. All doors are hung on 1.5 pairs of steel hinges in a choice of gold or silver effect, all of which are CE certified. The doors are hung in a hardwood frame and with smoke and intumescent seals integrated into the head and two jambs.

The core construction, 54mm door thickness, acoustic seals and drop down seals assist the product in compliance with acoustic regulations, where apartment entrance doors are required to have a sound reduction index of 29dBRw.*

Chris Miller continues. “Our service levels match the quality of the product, with delivery of our doorsets to meet our customer requirements. This ensures the door and frame remain in premium condition, avoiding any unnecessary damage or need for customers to store the doors on site.”

All JELD-WEN’s SecureFit Flat Entrance Doorsets come with a 10 year manufacturer’s guarantee.

*29dBRw is already achieved with FD30 SecureFit, currently undergoing third party testing for the FD60 version.
