Zero Seal Systems Ltd have just had their full automatic dropseal range positively assessed by UL International (UK) for use on previously tested steel based door assemblies to EN 1634-1:2014. When fitted with one of the Zero dropseals mentioned below, steel door assemblies would be expected to achieve a fire resistance performance of up to 180 minutes integrity. This new assessment covers the whole range, namely 320A, 321AA, 323A, 350A, 351AA, 352AA, 354A, 355A, 360A, 361AA, 364A, 364FSA, 365AA, 365FSAA, 367AA, 368AA and 369A. These models include patterns which are light, medium and heavy duty and also patterns which can be morticed, semi-morticed and surface mounted. Most Zero dropseals (or automatic threshold seals) are adjustable to 25mm. They work on a hinge-side plunger with a flat spring mechanism, so there are no electrics to deal with. The system drops a neoprene gasket in a scissor-like motion to form a tight seal with no drag – even on an uneven floor. The seal retracts automatically when the door opens. Sales Director Mark Lockley believes this just further strengthens Zero’s position as a market leading door hardware supplier “One of the major benefits of a steel door is the increased fire resistance they offer over say a timber door, well now Zero dropseals can be specified with confidence for fire resisting steel door assemblies. Having our whole range assessed for a duration of three hours to EN1634.1 is, we believe, ahead of the competition”. For further information please contact us.

The CORNI Ministar and Minipad ranges have now successfully completed the very high resistance 240 hours salt spray test. This means the sixth digit of their CE marking changes from Grade 3 (96 hours) to Grade 4 (240 hours). Both products are supplied with stainless steel side latches and Pullman latches as standard. New Certificates of Conformity and Declarations of Performance are available on our website. The CORNI MINISTAR 429 range was introduced by Zero in 2014 to replace the MAB EXIT 1000 range. It has the same functions and a very similar appearance but with many design improvements. This tried and tested product still uses the same modular approach to components as the MAB EXIT 1000 Series but Pullman latch bolts are now made from stainless steel and the rods come with steel covers as standard. The CORNI MINISTAR 429 is fully tested to the European standard EN 1125: 2008 on panic exit devices, is CE marked, and is suitable for use on fire rated doors.

Zero Seal Systems Ltd has recently completed a phase of increasing the mezzanine storage area in it’s warehouse. With the increasing demand to meet customers’ delivery requirements, extra storage for stock was required. Gavin Hogan commented “We are working in an increasing next day delivery industry, which obviously means we need sufficient stocks of the ZEROplus range to meet this. We have had the mezzanine in the warehouse since we moved back in 2011, but decided that it should be extended across the warehouse to give us that much needed extra storage. This now really gives us the confidence that we will continue to meet our customers’ demands in the future, as we would like to think we have always done in the past”. Service is very important to Zero, so the new extra storage space will enable them to uphold their excellent reputation.

Zero has undertaken successful fire testing on timber doors with the FLDL fusible link louvre in conjunction with an intumescent aperture liner. This intumescent has been specifically formulated for use with this louvre on timber fire doors and protects the door from burning through; it is not required on steel fire doors. The AL134PSA liner is 44mm wide and has been included in a successful 30 minute fire test on a 44mm thick timber door, while AL218PSA is 54mm wide and has been included in a successful 60 minute fire test on a 54mm thick timber door, both to BS EN 1634-1: 2008. BM TRADA Report CHILT/RF13260 refers, copy of test report available on request. The FLDL has been used on steel fire doors for many years, but it can now be used on timber fire doors. It is a self-attaching steel louvre (i.e. no holes need to be drilled in the door) with concealed fixings one side. In normal operation the blades can be opened and shut manually by means of a finger pull. In the event of fire, it has a fusible link which parts at 74⁰C and allows the stainless steel mechanism to snap the louvre blades shut, thus preventing the spread of flames. The standard finish is galvanised steel grey primed ready for powder coating but it is also available Grades 304 and 316 stainless steel. Expandable models are available to suit different door thicknesses. Please contact us if you require any further information on these products.
