Fire Safety & Security The hot topic of fire safety » » WITH FIRE SAFETY AS important a consideration as ever before, Barnsley-based Euroglaze is working with REHAU to provide reliable and cost-effective fire door solutions for social housing and commercial applications. Euroglaze has more than 8 years’ experience in the manufacture of fire rated doors and windows, and in 2016 the company started fabricating REHAU’s new AGILA fire door range. Based on the design of the REHAU TOTAL70 system, the PVC-U fire doors are suitable for fire escape routes, entrance halls and deck access flats, and can be used alongside REHAU’s RAUFERNO windows for complete fire-rated solutions. AGILA Fire Doors feature fire retardant glass and door panels, and a graphite intumescent strip which expands with heat to create a 30-minute fire rating (complying with the requirements of BS476 FD30 Pts 20 and 22). The fire rating applies to the standard composite fire doors as well as the AGILA’s toplight and sidelight configurations, giving customers more choice of style than ever before. Like other AGILA doors, the REHAU fire doors have excellent thermal insulation properties, sound proofing, robust security options and are low maintenance too. Euroglaze managing director Martin Nettleton said: “There is increasing demand in the market for PVC-U composite fire doors and we are pleased to be able to offer these as part of our REHAU range, which includes the RAUFERNO fire-rated windows. “Our technical and fabrication teams have been trained by REHAU to manufacture the AGILA fire door range and we use this specialist knowledge alongside our trusted Euroglaze approach to deliver a personable service to UK customers looking for complete fire-rated solutions.” To receive REHAU accreditation to fabricate the AGILA fire doors, Euroglaze had to be BSI accredited and undergo certified REHAU training, as well as prove the company had a top level quality control system in place. This rigorous selection and training process ensures that all REHAU fire doors fitted are guaranteed to provide protection to life and property for at least 30 minutes. Euroglaze can now provide a complete range of glazing products to its commercial customers – all backed up by 30 years’ industry knowledge and experience.
