Kilargo provides fire door solutions that effectively restrict the spread of smoke: a dangerous and potentially fatal by-product of fire.
As well as heat, fires produce a deadly cocktail of toxic gasses and dense smoke. This is often the major cause of fatalities, as smoke is produced in large quantities and can spread long distances. Even diluted smoke can blind and disorientate people, obscure exit signage, and hinder escape.
The application of a fire seal and smoke seals to a door assembly is a proven method to improve safety, help save lives, and improve tenable conditions in egress routes. These seals incorporate flexible smoke-sealing fins that restrict the passage of the cool and medium temperature smoke generated in the early stages of a fire.
We also offer a range of combined fire and smoke seals that incorporate an intumescent core material that is activated by heat and expands to many times its original volume – providing a stable, resilient and insulating barrier that restricts the spread of flames and hot smoke. These seals are designed for all “phases” of smoke by providing a performance overlap, with the intumescent material being activated before the smoke-sealing fin reaches its degradation point.
It is important to note that Australian fire door designs are proprietary by nature. It is therefore a requirement that door seals, smoke seals and other items of essential hardware are tested in accordance with AS1530.4 – with each fire door manufacturer’s door type – to ensure they do not compromise the assembly’s established fire resistance level.
