NEW GORBALS TOWERS FIRE DOORS, GLASGOW

Working on behalf of New Gorbals Housing Association, CCG supplied and installed a total of 288 door sets for a planned renewals programme for two multi-storey flatted blocks in the south-Glasgow area.

Situated on Waddell Court near the banks of the River Clyde, three styles of fire-rated doors were installed from the 1st floor upwards on the 14-storey blocks comprising common corridor door screens, storeroom access doors and common doors located at each stairwell.

Manufactured using engineered timber, each door is fully fire-rated for up to 60 minutes of fire performance thanks to the use of incumbents applied to the door frame. A mechanical closing system is also installed to the top of the door frame where the door is automatically closed after being opened. In the event of a fire, this system, complementary to the specification of the door, is utilised to help prevent fire spreading.

The glazed units, along with all ironmongery and paintwork, are pre-applied before being installed on-site with full installation services performed by CCG SBS within a year’s programme.
