No risks are taken with regard to fire safety. Certification in the field of fire resistance is therefore strict and highly important. This is because it provides a guarantee for the performance of fire-resistant overhead doors and, as a result, for part of your building’s fire safety.
There are many forms of fire resistance, all of which have different classifications of fire resistance. Protec Industrial Doors continues to innovate and develop in this regard. As a result we can offer you very high fire resistance classes for our fire doors: EI1-60 (60 minutes) and EI1-90 (90 minutes).
There are several classifications that are linked to the performance of overhead fire doors. Each classification describes a different performance in the field of smoke resistance, thermal insulation and obviously the fire resistance itself. The fire-resistant overhead doors of Protec Industrial Doors are tested in accordance with current European regulations, EN1634-1. These fire doors are certified to the highest possible classification: EI-1 in accordance with EN 13501-2.
The consultants of Protec Industrial Doors have extensive knowledge of all door properties, standards, certifications and guidelines. As a result, we can advise you extensively on all the standards, classifications and guidelines applicable to your project as a specialised discussion partner to you and your building team.
Total project solution
Naturally, project-specific requirements and specifications apply in the field of fire safety. Other requirements may also apply, such as acoustic insulation and burglar resistance.
At Protec Industrial Doors, all door properties can be combined in a single door. Your fire-resistant overhead door can also be designed as an explosion-resistant and explosion-proof version. Legally speaking, even the smallest modification of the door structure voids the certification of the overhead door in question. However, Protec Industrial Doors is capable of developing, testing and certifying the fire-resistant doors on a project basis.
