The locking solution provider are pleased to announce that DOM D31 Single mortise lock has now passed the fire test which took place at the well-established laboratory Warrington Fire; market leader in testing, inspection and certification.

 

The D31 Lock case had undergone rigorous fire testing to meet British, European and International standards for passive fire protection products, under the door sets and door hardware category. 


To initiate the test, a UK door manufacturer Bradbury Group supplied two door sets to Warrington Fire. After approximately 240 minutes, and rising temperatures of up to 1160 Degrees Celsius. There were evidently no traces of active flames reaching the door, and the lock case was kept intact. By meeting this test method, it proves in the event of a fire the D31 Single Mortise Locks meets all fire resistance standards to BS EN 1363-1.

 

UK National Sales Manager Mr Lloyd Chitty comments "This is a great development for our mechanical locking range, and works in line with fire and safety regulations for buildings and door safety.
