Schueco fire-protection systems benefit from industry upturn

According to leading aluminium systems supplier Schueco UK Ltd., the continuing upturn in activity in the UK building industry – particularly in respect of commercial properties – has led to an increasing demand for all types of their fire-protection products.

One of the few companies in the UK with a truly comprehensive range of fire-protection systems for façades, doors and windows, Schueco is constantly refining its offering to ensure that, whatever the application, it can offer a complete solution at a competitive price.

All but indistinguishable in appearance from standard products, Schueco fire-protection systems have been independently tested to EN 1364/1634, meeting all the necessary criteria for Integrity (E) – the prevention of the spread of flame – and Integrity/Insulation (EI) – the prevention of the spread of flame and the provision of a barrier to heat.  

The Schueco fire protection range includes single and double Schueco ADS 80 FR doors which can be specified with either a 30-minute integrity or 30/60 minute integrity/insulation rating and, like every system in the range, they meet the performance classification of EN 13501. To upgrade from a 30-minute to a 60-minute specification, special heat insulation material is introduced into the aluminium profiles and the glazing is uprated accordingly. Doors and screens that meet an EI90 rating (90-minute) are also available.

The doors are offered with a variety of tested side and top lights including radiused and angled shapes, allowing a wide range of approved design options. While more commonly employed internally, Schueco fire doors can be supplied for external applications as well. All types of doors can be specified with either face-fitting or barrel hinges and standard or EN 1627 burglar-resistant locking options.

In addition to fire doors, Schueco UK also offers aluminium fire protection façade systems (designated FW 50+ BF and FW 60+ BF) and skylight systems with 30- and 60-minute protection, all tested to EN 1364. Also available is a Schueco AWS fire window offering up to 30-minute integrity/insulation (EI).

To complement its fire products offering, Schueco UK runs specialist training courses at its Milton Keynes HQ. On completing the SAFE course, a successful trainee gains official certification as a Schueco-Approved Fire Expert.
