Schueco's Aluminium Fire Protection Products Meet Strict Standards

The case for the suitability of aluminium for the fabrication of fire protection products is made strongly by leading building envelope and solar products specialist, Schueco UK Limited, whose range of specialist glazed aluminium doors, façades and windows is the most comprehensive in the UK market.

Based on many years of experience, independent test evidence and assessment, Schueco’s aluminium fire protection systems fully satisfy Building Regulations’ requirements. Almost indistinguishable in appearance from standard products, they meet all the 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.

Single and double Schueco ADS 80 FR doors can be specified with either a 30- or 60-minute integrity or integrity/insulation rating and, like every system in the Schueco fire-protection range, are fully tested according to 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.

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 conforming to EN 1364. Also available is a Schueco AWS fire window offering 30-minute integrity/insulation (EI).

Schueco – Green Technology for the Blue Planet

That means clean energy from solar products and windows. And the contribution that Schueco makes to the environment with pioneering building envelopes. To be more precise, with Energy3: Saving Energy – Generating Energy – Networking Energy. Window and façade systems not only save energy due to optimum thermal insulation, they also generate energy thanks to efficient solar solutions. This creates an excess of energy which can be used by means of intelligent networking. For building functions, as well as for everyday life. The result is a significant step towards energy self-sufficiency. Towards the sustainable conservation of natural resources. And for a secure future. With more than 5200 employees and 12,000 partner companies, Schueco is active in more than 75 countries worldwide and achieved turnover of 2.38 billion euros in 2010.
