EN81-58 Fire Test for our Concertina Shutter Door

Posted on Tuesday, 4th April 2017 in News

We are pleased to announce that our Concertina Shutter Door range of BKG Goods Only Lifts are now available with 2 hours EN81-58 Fire Rating.

This European Standard specifies the method of test for determining the fire resistance of lift landing doors which may be exposed to a fire from the landing side. The procedure applies to all types of lift landing doors used as a means of access to lifts in buildings and which are intended to provide a fire barrier to the spread of fire via the lift well.

The fire test was successfully completed at the Exova Laboratories in Warrington, where the new design of BKG Landing Frame in conjunction with Shorts’ Concertina Shutter Door was subjected to over 2 hours of furnace testing at temperatures up to 1000°C with the door and frame finishing the test with their structural integrity intact.

This now means that all landing doors options across our entire BKG Service and Goods Lift ranges are available as EN81-58 certified.
