Schueco Jansen expands range with introduction of unlatched fire doors


Leading UK steel systems specialist Schueco Jansen has significantly expanded its range of fire protection solutions with the introduction of two Unlatched Steel Fire Doors.

Compared to traditional timber fire doors, these superbly engineered steel framed doors offer the advantages of slim sightlines, fully glazed leaves and a high level of performance, making them ideal for public-access locations such as hospitals, hotels and schools.

The doors are available in two ranges, Jansen Economy 60 E30 and Janisol 2 EI30. They operate without lever handles and are equipped with a bi-metallic latch that reacts to the heat from a fire, causing a pin to expand and retain the leaf in place.

They can be colour-coated to match the decor of the building in which they are installed and can be specified in both single- and double-leaf versions, either as stand-alone door-sets or as part of a glazed fire-resisting screen. Associated fittings include a variety of glazing options, hinges and integral door-closing devices.

Having undergone a Field of Application Assessment by International Fire Consultants Ltd, both systems have been assessed to EN 1634, meaning that they comply with all existing statutory legislation.
