Glass Fire Door Seals


INTRODUCTION

Glass fire doors present particular desgn challenges because unlike glazed fire doors there is often no substantial frame to restrain the glass so that it delivers the required fire resistance performance.  Sealmaster intumescent seals have helped glass fire door designers overcome these challenges.

BENEFITS
Glass fire doors allow the optimul flow of natural light whilst achieving 30 or 60 minutes fire resistance performance.

The example shown here is a 30 minute glass fire door installed as part of a faceted butt-jointed fire screen in the Heathrow Hilton Hotel. The fire door incorporates Sealmaster Ultima seals   in slim 22mm stiles. These fire and smoke seals have the added feature of providing draught sealing to the door.
