Wrightstyle, the leading international supplier of advanced glazing systems, has introduced a new door system that provides 90 minutes of integrity and insulation (EI90). The new 8050 series of thermally broken fire doors are fully compatible with Wrightstyle’s SR60 curtain walling system, and provide a new level of aesthetic appeal.
The door system is available in either single leaf (1606mm wide x 3062mm high or 1534mm wide x 3222mm high) or double leaf (3102mm wide x 3062mm high or 2958mm wide x 3222mm high).
The doors, which will accept glass up to 60mm thick, can be used as a stand-alone product or incorporated into Wrightstyle’s SR60 curtain walling system, to provide a complete screen or façade of 90 minutes integrity and insulation. The new door system has been successfully fire tested, and can incorporate any EI-90 glass that has been tested into steel framing to a maximum glass area of 3.97 sq metres.
It adds a further option to Wrightstyle’s already extensive range of fire and smoke resistant doors, which include a range of unlatched doors in double or single leaf format – a breakthrough fully-glazed fire door system.
Previously, Wrightstyle’s F1 glazed door and screen system, offered non-thermally broken fire protection up to EI-60. The new system therefore adds a further 30 minutes of protection with the significant and added benefit of thermally broken profiles.
The SR series curtain wall and roof glazing system provides architects and designers with flexibility in glass dimensions and façade design, allowing large areas to be spanned without the need for a secondary support assembly.
“The inclusion of a thermal break in this new door system gives it added insulation, while allowing for slimline steel framing,” said Denis Wright, Wrightstyle’s chairman.
“It therefore combines the protective function of an advanced steel glazing system with the sleek aesthetics that architects and designers are looking for,” he said.
