Entrance doorset suitable for interior of buildings (high rise blocks), balconies and street level. (Note street level will not generally call for fire or smoke performance). Secured by Design 2018 approved.
Timber engineered construction 54mm with hardwood lippings. The frame is hardwood density 640 kg per m² - this is important for durability and temperature variation. Threshold options include hardwood, slim line & low profile. Supplied with hardwood frame and door stop.
Designed and tested as complete doorset assembly (including top fanlight solid, glazed, & side panels top glazed, bottom solid) The complete doorset includes hinges (CE marked); all intumescent seals and smoke seals integral to the doorset design; locking system/s; all hardware, including door viewer, door knocker - bolt through, letter plate, door closer cam action CE marked to EN1154 for Equality Act and BS8300 requirements.
The same complete doorset design specification undergoes primary testing at UKAS accredited test houses for all industry standard performance tests as recently referenced in Government document: MHCLG guidance note 16 section 1.5.
Environmentally friendly design
Non-toxic natural bio-degradeable materials (particularly important for when in a fire) are used in the design and manufacture of the doorset: composite timber & water-based high tech finishes. Repairable door core and frame - timber composite core and hardwood frames.
State of the art production
The doorset is produced with state of the art CNC production machinery. All hinge cut outs and any apertures are to exact dimensions to ensure correct sizing and tolerances. The doorset is beautifully finished and delivered to site separately with the frame, any fanlights or sidelights and its box of components – all of which are labelled and traceable. The modular framing system for fanlights and sidelights assists with manual handling and offers more flexibility with on-site installation. The complete doorset leads to lower carbon footprint reduction and better quality control, as it is does not require drilling and finishing by different trades on-site.
All hardware is matching in satin chrome finish and aesthetically pleasing. Good quality and tested as part of complete doorset in performance tests.
Locking system options
Letterbox, door knocker, door viewer, door chain
All doorsets are factory finished to a high standard and able to be installed without any further finishing work. Options include:
The style is solid flush with options of glazed fanlight and/or side panel (top glazed bottom solid) as per primary fire test.
Doorsets are primary tested in full scale fire tests for solid doorsets with fanlights / side panel top section in monolithic multidirectional glazing which offers fire insulation as well as fire integrity. The glazing also meets BS EN 356 attack resistance requirements which Secured by Design call for. Finish: obscure or clear. Standard is obscure. This type of glazing is suitable for internal areas with reduced exposure to direct sunlight.
Doorsets are tailored to size, including heights of up to 2100mm (door, frame and hardwood cill). Any fanlights are in addition to this size. Door sizes are adaptable to meet Part M of building regulations 2015.
In the event of a doorset being damaged by accidental damage, it is able to be repaired and/or repainted with the Safer Homes kit. All Safer Homes Range doorsets are fitted as standard with the G-smart system for complete traceability on the doorset’s DNA. This system records all maintenance audits and any repairs.
1) CE Marking
As an entrance doorset, it is required to be CE marked to the standard EN14351-1. This is a legal requirement. The CE Marking for the doorset denotes the 2 mandatory requirements:
2) Weathering Performance
CE Marking also calls for:
The doorset is suitable for its environment from a weathering performance perspective. As some doorsets may be street level / balcony level as well as internal to a building, the specification is level 1200. All weathering tests are undertaken with the doorset as a complete unit including with the letterbox.
The air permeability / water tightness and wind resistance exposure categories for the achieved doorset classification (as per above test standards) are stated on the CE mark.
Note weathering performance depends upon choice of threshold and locking system.
4) Security Performance
5) Thermal Insulation Performance
U value for doors in new build: 2.0 w/m²K or lower (houses) 2.2 w/m²K or lower (flats/apartments) U value for doors in existing / refurbishment: 1.8 w/m²K or lower for houses and flats.
The Safer Homes range achieves 1.5 w/m²K
Tested for a range of threshold options – please check when choosing threshold option.
7) Fire Safety Performance
8) Smoke Control Performance
9) Acoustics Performance
If required sound reduction control should not be lower than 29dB
10) Installation of Doors
11) Certification of doors
Doorsets carry third party certification for manufacture for Fire and for Security.
This is for the complete doorset. The notification body, Exova BM Trada, is UKAS accredited.
Doorsets are fitted with G-Smart coding - cost-effective, user friendly maintenance management.
Helps with fire safety responsibilities for flats (giving clear audit trail).
