Goodwins Hall – FrameFit

The second Athena Care Home site PAL were asked to look at, again showed significant problems with excessive gaps at the bottom of the doors.

Gaps below the bottom of a fire door should be no larger than 8mm, or 3mm for fire and smoke doors.

In order to bring those doors back into compliance, PAL specified the use of FrameFit for bottom door seals and High Expansion FrameFit c/w smoke seal to remediate excessive gaps around the door leaf.

Like the previous care home, our client used Fire Teams Solutions Ltd to carry out the install.

The Army Veteran led team provide fire door installation and maintenance services across the UK and have subsequently won the install of NEW PAL Fire Doorsets at both sites, where the Fire Doors have been condemned for more than just Gap Related issues.
