Fire-resistant sectional door
The CAMPISAFIRE door is built just like a sectional gate. Fire-resistant panels are approximately 600 mm high and varied depth and mass depending on fire resistance class. The door is identical on both sides. Its most important components are a special glass fibre panel and fire-resistant materials bound with special resins that evaporate at some temperature and, although not harmful, leave the basic framework that guarantees good fire resistance even during 1200°C tests.
External panels are resistant to weather conditions. 120 and 180 minute versions are finished with yellow acrylic paint RAL 1024. Panels may be painted with acrylic paints for outdoor use, available in specialised shops. The 60 minute resistance door is only made of a central panel painted yellow RAL1024. For additional payment, it may be painted with other colours on request.
Assembly and side space
CAMPISAFIRE fire doors are installed as STANDARD, HI-LINTEL, VERTICAL and LOW-LINTEL sectional doors for the doors of up to 950 kg of weight. Fire doors in the version with up to 60 and 120 minutes fire resistance may be installed with a low lintel of minimum 450–550 mm (depending on the dimensions of the door). Maximum 300 mm side space is necessary for the installation. Walls must be straight and levelled with the lintel. The space necessary for the installation is stated in the technical specifications.
The CAMPISAFIRE door is supplied on with a Fidelity hydraulic drive unit, which guarantees excellent operation, does not require numerous maintenance procedures and fulfils the robust requirements applied in the design of fire doors. The door is lifted with the drive unit and closed gravitationally. Two versions are available:
The CAMPISAFIRE door consists of:
Mandatory settings of the mode of operation
Fire-resistant door with the following settings:
- automatic closing after the alarm and power breakdown with the speed of about 0.08 m/s
- if an obstacle is detected when the gate is being closed, it will stop until the backup battery goes empty, also when the power suffers breakdown; after removing the obstacle, closing will continue with the speed of about 0.08 m/s
- kwhen the door is locked, is stays fire-resistant on both sides for the time corresponding with the approved fire resistance rating
CAMPISAFIRE gate possibilities
the door is available in various EN 1634-1 classes.
|EN 1634-1 class|
Fire resistance of the CAMPISAFIRE door has been tested by the body notified by CSI. The tests were done in the largest available furnace, 2.6 m x 2.8 m wide, with the certified resistance exceeding by 10% the required time, which allowed to extend certification for larger doors.
CAMPISAFIRE protection measures
Fire doors are expensive due to the use of the latest technologies and expensive elements.
It is logical that this investment needs to be protected against damages so that it could always guarantee the best protecting against fire, but also because repair is expensive. For this reason, we recommend:
- to always use strong protection of vertical guides along the door opening.
Optional protection systems
Apart from this, we always recommend using protective ribbing and photocells installed in many points, because they allow to monitor the movement of the door in case of obstacles in the door opening, with the local alarm or in any place being activated after the set time after breaking the photocell path to prevent simple alarm reactions in the work of the door. The product certified in accordance with the standard EN 1634-1. The new standard EN 1634-1 allowed unification throughout the European Community. National certification in accordance with various national standards is still being used, but it is obvious that assembly of the door certified in accordance with the new European standard EN 1634-1 ensures duration of the investment.
The CAMPISAFIRE fire doors are currently marked with the CE mark only under the Machine Directive 98/37/CE, improved 98/79/CE directive and the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 89/336/CE. The door will be marked with the CE mark after approval in accordance with the Building Materials Directive EN 13241-2, which deals in particular with fire resistant doors. The certification process is under way.
The technical description of the fire resistant door
The opening and closing system
Static option: opening with a pneumatic and hydraulic actuator with 8 bar compressed air (if unavailable, a small portable compressor will do).
Intense operation option: for intense operation, automatic. Opening with the speed of 0.18 or 0.09 m/s for the door of over 750 kg. Faster opening optionally possible. (Controlled) closing with the regular speed of about 0.18 m/s, closing in case of fire alarm with the speed of about 0.08 m/s.
Alarm protection measures
Sound alarm if the obstacle is not removed for a longer time (the alarm may be placed somewhere else): it means continuous monitoring for obstacles in the door opening.
