Door fire protection products from Envirograf have been used at the elegant Gosfield Hall, Essex. The venue is operated by County House Weddings of Ross-on-Wye. With a high volume of guests in the hall every year, the local authority had to ensure that every effort had been made to protect occupants in the event of a fire.
Architect Rob Wood contacted local fire consultant Vic Lewis of Fire Prevention Products (Essex and Suffolk) to find a cost-effective solution to fire protection of exit doors to comply with current fire regulations, without the nuisance and expense of replacement.
For the glazed corridor areas of the hall, Vic suggested the use of Envirograf® Product 79 (softwood intumescent glazing beads offering up to 30 minutes of fire protection). The old doors were upgraded to fire-rated doors with a combination of Envirograf® Product 38 (firecard and intumescent sheet) and Product 42 (HW coatings system).
Envirograf® Product 69 (surfacemounted fire/smoke seals) were used for flexibility on uneven door frames and to avoid the need for rebating. Envirograf® Product 13 (intumescent pipe collars) were also used where door handles were recessed into wooden wall panels.
