Ahmarra invest in smoke testing for certified fire doors at the Warrington fire test centre in High Wycombe.
Several smoke seal options were tested and achieved smoke leakage results as low as 1m3/m/hr leakage rate, which is under the 3m3/m/hr threshold.
Thanks to this smoke test and their existing bank of primary fire test data, Ahmarra can offer a wide range of fire and smoke seal options for every door configuration, ensuring full compliance with both fire and smoke certification.
Tim Doran, Ahmarra’s Managing Director said: ‘This smoke test gives our customers further reassurance that our products are more than capable of meeting the requirements for both smoke and fire certification - and are genuinely “Tried and Tested”.
‘The decision to smoke test was mainly due to the majority of smoke seal test evidence being based on single doors and we were surprised by the lack of evidence for double doors with a lock.’
