Aspex has successfully fire tested the Novista Riser Steel doorset with multiple door leafs mounted in a single frame.

The doorsets were tested to BS EN1634-1: 2014 and BS EN1363: 2012 for two hours by Exova, the UKAS accredited testing company in High Wycombe.

Passing the two-hour fire test means Aspex can now supply three, four, five, and six door leafs in a single frame, which will provide end users with a seamless solution, allowing access to long riser areas without the need for intermediate supports or walls.

The door frames for these multiple leaf systems, which can be very wide, are supplied in kit form for easy assembly on site without the need for special tools.  The door leafs are hung using a pivot system with a sprung top pin making them easy to install and remove.

The Aspex Novista Riser doorsets have now passed four fire safety tests in total, with the Novista Riser Timber tested to FD30 and FD60 and the Novista Riser Steel tested to FD120.

Launching earlier this year, the Novista Riser Steel system is suitable for a wide variety of projects with either standard single and double door leaf configurations or a newly tested multiple system where three, four, five, or even six door leafs can be installed into a single frame.

The door leafs can be factory painted to any RAL colour or primed to allow on-site painting for precise colour matching with the adjacent wall.

Ashley Burberry, managing director of Aspex UK, said: “Meeting fire safety regulations is a crucial element when it comes to doorsets, and it is something that we as a company are committed to.

“All of the fire rated doorsets that we provide have been tested by UKAS accredited companies and are supplied under the International Fire Consultants (IFC) certification scheme.

“The Novista Riser doorsets have primary fire test evidence meaning that we can guarantee that these doorsets will deliver on performance and meet the highest safety regulations.”
