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.
The enhanced door sets were 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 from 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.
