"A basic risk assessment of a fire door determines it will not work with the intumescent seals missing.

The British Woodworking Federations’ Fire Door Inspection scheme reports that 61% of fire doors inspected in installations across the UK  have a problem with the seals.
That is a truly frightening landscape.  Read on arrowLearn More...

         A Case History

 

 
So, for Elliott it is attractive to eliminate a detail that could go wrong. The seals in the header of door frame are defying gravity, relying on 15mm of self-adhesive tape to hold them in place. The smoke seals interact with the opening forces of heavy fire doors so it is not hard to understand how a seal can work loose over time.  Elliott take every step it can to ensure our buildings comply with every aspect of the building regulations including passive fire protection.

Forever Firecheck® stops the fire seal from being able to work loose and has been tested and proven by Morland to work effectively in the event of a fire. Smoke control is provided by batwings fitted to the door stop so there is no friction from the action of the door working them loose.
Morland even go to the trouble of fitting the smoke seal to the door stop in their factory so it can not be overlooked on installation.” Forever Firecheck® Quote Close

Applications

Applications

CE Marked Doorsets

With the forthcoming arrival of CE marking for fire doorsets it is imperative that the doorset manufacturer is able to ensure the correct seal stays in place through installation and decoration.

Standard practise on site is to remove seals for the decoration of the frame and to then replace them. Even temporarily removing them and re-instating them invites errors and reduces the adhesion the strip has to the frame making certification compliance questionable. Forever Firecheck® requires no further finishing ensuring certification compliance is maintained.

Mental Health Facilities

Intumescent seals have been associated with a number of harmful incidents and standard practice now is to cut strips into small lengths and screw them into the frame. Forever Firecheck® negates this requirement by wrapping the intumescent seal.

“High end” Residential Door Frames

For installations where the door and frame are a key design aspects, such as luxury apartments, the requirement for a plastic strip in the frame is unwelcome. Forever Firecheck® allows the strips to be hidden away.
