“Public buildings like hospitals and shopping malls have to meet very strict fire resistance requirements and the doors have to be extremely durable as well. Our steel profile fire-resistant sliding door EI30 is the best choice in those circumstances”, he declares.
The new Forster Fuego light automatic door with fire and smoke resistance combines the benefits of maximum barrier-free clearances with the maximum transparency of slender, fully glazed steel constructions. Class EI230 fire barrier door stops the spreading of fire and isolates the heat from the fire for at least 30 minutes.
Fire-resistant doors are used for additional safety in case of building fires. Sliding doors are used in seperation walls of room, if opening of door must create as large aperture as possible or there is no room for opening of usual door.

The door is intended for indoor use in dry and heated rooms where there is no direct contact with chemicals and no corrosive environments.
