City Island Phase 2 project is a housing development in East London. It includes 10 residential buildings, offices, retail, an energy centre and a centrepiece cultural building, which is home to the English National Ballet.
Soundcraft have been appointed by Pantera Carpentry for the supply of over 400 apartment entrance doors for the blocks (A&M). As the developer requested that a non-standard multipoint lock to be installed and as Soundcraft had not previously tested this particular lock a fire test was required.
Consequently, Soundcraft instructed Exova BM Trada to carry out the fire test on the FD30 front entrance doors, incorporating a German manufactured Glutz multipoint lock complete with the necessary intumescent packs. Other ironmongery included 4nr hinges, a cylinder with thumb turn, lever, escutcheons, spyhole and dropseal.
The fire test was successful with the doorset performing over and above the required 30 minutes mark and was switched off at 40 minutes. Soundcraft have since been awarded further Blocks (B&C) with the same customer for another 400+ apartment front entrance doors. In addition to being FD30, the doors are also Pas 24 and FSC.
A third-party certification from Exova BM Trada provides the reassurance that every product will perform as expected.
