New Acoustic, Smoke and Fire Seals for Door Assemblies brochure from Lorient
Leading door seal manufacturer Lorient has launched its new, improved 'Acoustic, Smoke and Fire Seals for Door Assemblies' brochure.
The brochure showcases Lorient's unique range of multi-functional door seals, which can provide the highest standard of protection against sound (Approved Documents E); smoke at all temperatures and fire (Approved Document B); while offering low frictional resistance for ease of door operation (Approved Document M). In addition, Lorient’s seals are tested for air tightness under BS 476: Pt. 31.1; and will make a positive contribution to thermal containment.
Many of Lorient's seals are tested over 1,000,000 opening and closing cycles on a full-size door assembly without failure; thus giving an exceptional product lifespan; reducing the need to replace the product; and minimising waste. Furthermore, Lorient is accredited under a number of third-party approval schemes, setting benchmark quality and performance requirements, which go beyond simply passing a single fire or smoke test; these include: CERTIFIRE, BBA and IFC Certification.
The brochure features comprehensive information and advice on door sealing; to help anyone involved in the construction industry to meet the latest requirements of the Approved Documents to the Building Regulations (England and Wales). Similar guidance for Northern Ireland is also included; as well as the relevant requirements for Scotland - The Scottish Technical Handbooks.
Seals are available in a range of standard sizes, lengths and colours to suit all applications - allowing freedom of design. Many are also available in metallic, or woodgrain finishes, which have been selected to harmonise with commonly specified timbers and replicate the appearance of natural wood.
