Intumescent strip is vital for protecting the weakest point on a fire door – around the edges. FItting intumescent strip to a fire door means that when fire strikes, the intumescent strip expands and forms a tight seal around the edge of the fire door, resisting the passage of fire and hot smoke. The removeable brush also stops the passage of cold smoke. However, intumescent strip is often complicated, time consuming and messy to fit, requiring removal of the door, routing the door edge, fitting the strips, re-fitting the door, then a big clean up job!
This surface mounted product simply sticks on to the door frame and leaving no mess and requiring no tools except a sharp knife.
- Clean surfaces with alcohol wipe supplied to ensure they are free from dust and grease.
- Remove backing tape and position with brush against the door stop as indicated.
- Apply to both sides over hinges and latch plate. With a sharp knife cut around the latch plate allowing the door to engage. Apply to top of door frame cutting in corners ensuring a tight fit.
- For best results allow the adhesive to cure overnight.
- Apply fire door stickers enclosed.
