Watch the FD30 Fire Test

FD30

Falcon Panel Products testing an FD30 entrance door-set including both Strebord and Stredor 44mm cores, and incorporating multi point locks, vision panels, softwood frames and Astra jamb mounted concealed door closers.

With so much debate about fire safety lately, culminating in recent statements from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) outlining new testing requirements for fire doors, there is an increasing emphasis on the suitability of door hardware for use on fire doors. The Astra 4003 concealed door closer, is fully certified, CE marked in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation, and tested to 500000 cycles, complying with BS EN1154 European harmonised standard.

Fire testing of doors consistently shows the top of the door and frame to be the most vulnerable area with regard to smoke and flame penetration – as seen in the above video. In our experience, a jamb mounted device, installed around the middle of the door, is much less onerous in this respect, and therefore clearly the safer option
