Despite the overwhelming need for effective fire-protection in system-built façades, windows and doors, few companies possess a range that is comprehensive enough to provide a complete solution.

The exception is Schueco UK whose suite of fire-rated aluminium systems can satisfy even the most demanding requirements.  

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 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 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.
