Protection against the spread of fire and smoke
Fire doors are intended to protect openings in fire-retardant or fire-resistant walls against the penetration of fire. TORMAX automatic fire doors provide convenience in normal operations – and a plus point in terms of safety in an emergency because of their sustained resistance to fire and smoke.
Fire doors must always be self-closing and must not be held open by wedges or other means. The closing impulse can be triggered manually via a button or a connection to a smoke alarm or building management system.
People escaping from the fire must always be able to open the door manually; the drive closes the door again safely when they have passed through.
Legislation on fire and smoke protection continues to be at a national level. We therefore recommend that you obtain information from your local TORMAX partner about suitable solutions for your requirement in your country.
