PROMETAL doorset achieves fire resistance certification
Thomas Bell-Wright International Consultants has announced certification of PROMETAL’s latched single-acting double-leaf steel doorset with aluminium decorative cladding. The door achieved a fire resistance rating of 90 minutes when tested to ANSI/UL 10C at the Thomas Bell-Wright laboratory in Dubai.
TBWIC is the first certified body for fire rated products based within the UAE.
Ayman Odeh, Managing Director of PROEMTAL, said: “PROMETAL always aims to combine products & services by providing a total solution as per international standards and local government regulations. We also cater to customized requirements in prestigious projects without compromising safety & security.”
Tom Bell-Wright who is the CEO and CTO of TBWIC, said: “We are proud of our association with Prometal and ASSA ABLOY. We believe that our system for labelling doors is particularly robust, since we produce the laser-engraved labels in-house, and each doorset has a unique label which includes a QR code pointing to the certification documentation on our website. We expect this to differentiate both ourselves and Prometal in our respective marketplaces.”
