The future of building design is clear
Now part of the Novoferm family, ROBUST UK continue to lead the field and are now offering fully glazed doors and screens as part of their comprehensive range of steel door products.
Architects and building engineers can specify fully glazed steel doors and wall partitions in areas that need to meet fire and security requirements, and GLAS-DOR 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, door sets 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. 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.
