Halspan launches new range of fire doors with XTra benefits
Global fire door supplier, Halspan, has launched a new range of products into the UK market.
Following the Grenfell Tower disaster, councils, housing associations and other landlords are looking for a reliable fire door product. This has led to the creation of Halspan XT.
A significant step-up on its already high performing ProTech product, the new Halspan XT range of solid timber core fire door blanks provides a fully-certified solution.
Developed specifically for use in exterior, fully exposed conditions, the new Halspan XT range of fire door blanks features a 3-layer solid timber core, Class 3 exterior grade plywood facing and adhesive. For internal applications, the new Halspan IT range of fire door blanks features the same 3-layer solid timber core, faced with MDF for a superior finish. Technical Director of Halspan, Rhod Williams, said: “The new XT and IT products are here to answer a problem in our industry. When fire doors are installed into a building by a landlord - private or public - they must be able to trust in them.
“Halspan’s robust chain of custody ensures both consistency of supply and the quality of the product. Additionally, all our timber is FSC Chain of Custody certified.
“The key difference between XT and any other solid timber core door on the market is that only XT uses exterior Class 3 grade plywood, making it uniquely suitable for fully exposed exterior conditions. The XT also has extensive dual scope data covering both fire resistance and security. It can therefore be used with a variety of ancillary components, offering unrivalled flexibility.
“Halspan is extremely proud of the XT and also our new IT product. Complementing our range of particle board door blanks, Halspan IT also saves time and boosts productivity with no need to calibrate sanders.”
Halspan will be running webinars on this new range of products on July 15 and August 5. This will cover all the Xtra benefits of installing this range into buildings, its technical spacifications and why the supply chain must react in the wake of Grenfell. Sign up to either date here.
