Smoke seals for double action fire doors

Recommended Posts

Guest RobertLis

Hello,

I am an architect and am looking for a double, double action, floor-sprung, doorset (swings both ways), FD30 that is has a certified smoke seal all around.

Am having a job finding this arrangement for any suppliers, with the smoke seal part being the problem.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks

Yes there are available double swing fire doors which uses specialised hinges and closers. A fire door closer used with double swing doors should not only close the door but also hold it firmly in the closed position. It needs to be strong enough to keep the door closed against any pressure to which the door leaf may be subjected in a fire. The only type of device which has been shown to be successful is a spring type mounted in the sill.

What is the maximum allowable gap between the two leaf at that case to comply with NFPA 80?

My customer has a large doorway in a listed building the original door was taken down and now needs a firedoor to replace 

It's in a hotel so they have asked if there is such a thing as a saloon style door consisting of two doors hung on hinges as normal but swing both ways meeting in the middle is this allowed or such thing exist..

Would a double action double fire door within a fire exit corridor require to have smoke seals ? 

I.e FD30 s ??

If so, how can smoke seal be achieve due to nature of closing (floor mounted closer )

Yes the doors across escape corridors are smoke stop doors to ensure you do not have to travel more than 18 m in smoke conditions, check out ARCHITECTURAL AND SPECIALIST DOOR MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION BEST PRACTICE GUIDE TO TIMBER FIRE DOORS section 14 Smoke control door seals.
