Hinge Fire Protection

Hinge fire protection, flexible intumescent protection sheet 1mm thick. Placed within the hinge, lock, or door closer space. Designed to protect metals and doors from overheating in a fire. Unaffected by moisture.

  • Supplied in standard sizes for quick and easy fitting (some with self-adhesive backing, whilst others are plain).
  • Ideal for use behind hinges and steel door closures and completely wrapped around the hidden parts of lock hardware on a fire-rated door.
  • When installed, the sheet compresses without compromising its protective qualities. Unlike mastic, which is ineffective for hinge, lock, and door closure protection.
  • Subsequently, the intumescent paper cools the lock, hinges, and screws and protects them from overheating in the event of a fire.

Under UK Building Regulations, all door furniture must be protected by intumescent material.

Furthermore, in a number of fire resistance tests, the product protected ironmongery.

New CE-approved self-closing hinge (Set of 3) – Self-closing hinge set, available in brass finish, brown, chrome finish, stainless steel, bronze, and white.

Fire-rated intumescent plugs – a plastic tubular plug containing flexible intumescent material for fixing into holes in solid surfaces. Moreover, protects hinges by cooling them down in the event of a fire. In addition to this, the intumescent expands around the hinges, cooling the metal. Available in 38mm lengths with a diameter of 6mm or 8mm.
