UNION launches new Fire Door Kit range
UNION is cutting the hassle out of sourcing fire door hardware with its new Fire Door Kits, featuring a complete range of pre-selected products that work seamlessly together, look good and meet every relevant standard. The role of a fire door in supporting fire safety and integrity within a building is critical. UNION’s Fire Door Kit is a single box solution that helps installers to ensure that they are fitting correct and fully compliant hardware.
Until now property owners, facilities managers and installers have faced a bewildering variety of hardware choices when installing or maintaining a fire door set. With the UNION Fire Door Kit, all that worry, guesswork and lost time is now a thing of the past.
Designed for common installation situations, each Fire Door Kit combines all the hardware needed to install or repair a fire door. This includes hinges, door closer, lockcase, levers and signage, as well as installation instructions, fitting templates, fixings and the performance sheets to hand over to the building owner for their records.
Crucially, every part included in the Kit is tested to all relevant standards, ensuring the door will meet regulations.
There are four different Fire Door Kits, each designed to work in a specific application. The Sashlock Kit is ideal for locking fire doors, while the Deadlock Kit is a perfect fit for locking storage areas. The Latch Kit is designed for non-locked rooms, and finally the Corridor Kit is used for push-pull non-locking fire doors.
Alison Aston, Category Manager at UNION, said: “The Fire Door Kit range is the easiest way to install or maintain a fire door. We believe this will be a huge benefit for property owners and tradespeople alike, as they now have a way to ensure a fire door is fitted with all the hardware it needs to meet legal requirements and work perfectly too. It’s simple to stock, easy to order, compact to transport and store on site – Kit in one arm, door blank in the other, job done.
“The UNION Fire Door Kit is ideal for any owner/landlord, tradesperson, facilities manager or caretaker wanting to add or maintain a fire door to a property. It brings instant safety, compliance and peace of mind while saving time, and it’s all from UNION, the most trusted name in fire door safety and security.”
