Five of Moralt’s high quality, performance door cores are now available with the reassurance of third-party certification from the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme - one of the most prestigious third party certification processes available in the UK for timber based products.
The door cores, which include two Moralt FireSmoke and three Moralt FireSound cores - the only high acoustic fire door cores offering BM TRADA Q-Mark accreditation - are all available nationwide and directly from stock through Moralt’s exclusive UK distributor, James Latham.
The BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme provides peace of mind to specifiers and purchasers that timber based products are manufactured to a high standard, guaranteeing their consistent quality and performance.
In the UK, there is a legal requirement for manufacturers of fire doors to provide proof of the ability of their products to resist the passage of fire through the provision of test evidence.
Whilst this demonstrates that the door meets the legally acceptable minimum standards, the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme provides additional reassurance that products are fit for purpose through on-going compliance to the original product specification.
Steven Dennard, Group Door Manager for James Latham commented, “Most manufacturers have several options for 30 and 60 minute fire rated doors, but Moralt has now supplemented their Q-Mark offer with three high end acoustic FireSound door cores (44mm, 54mm and 59mm thick) which not only achieve FD30/FD60 but also 40dB – 44 dB acoustic rating.
“This is great news for all Q-Mark manufacturing members, as well as architects, specifiers and any other Latham door-producing customers. Not only does it demonstrate their commitment to consistently manufacturing high quality timber joinery products but it also shows that they have the confidence that their products will perform to the high standards demanded by schemes such as this.”
He added, “The FireSound and FireSmoke door blanks deliver numerous features and benefits and now, with this excellent and widely recognised independent accreditation to back them up, they also offer much stronger specification appeal.”
As well as the Moralt FireSound and FireSmoke range, James Latham is now also offering a Moralt PassiveHouse compliant doorkits, supplied complete with Meranti frame, ironmongery, and a 98mm thick door blank. The door blank is supplied part processed/CNC'd for the double-rebate detail along with lock and hinge fixings and the kit is CE-Marked – EN14351-1, External Windows & Doors.
