14 Mar Prometal doorset achieves fire certification from Thomas Bell-Wright
Dubai-based security and safety door manufacturers, Prometal Industries, has been awarded a fire resistance certification from the Thomas Bell-Wright laboratory in Dubai.
The company says that its ‘Latched Single Acting Double Leaf Steel Doorset with Aluminium Decorative Cladding’ achieved a fire resistance rating of 90 minutes when tested to ANSI/UL 10C. In June last year Assa Abloy acquired Prometal Group, the group consists of three companies called Prometal Steel Doors, Lockwood Wooden Doors and Boxtech Metal Electrical Cabinets.
Tom Bell-Wright who is the CEO & CTO of TBWIC said that its system for labelling doors is particularly robust and they produce the laser-engraved labels in-house. “Each doorset has a unique label which includes a QR code pointing to the certification documentation on our website. We expect this to differentiate both ourselves and Prometal in our respective marketplaces.”
