Plastic bags, cotton buds, plastic stirrers and straws are all on the UK Governments hit list. However the plastic encapsulated intumescent strip lives long. Too long in the opinion of both David Attenborough and Morland.
With this in mind Morland have developed a fire rated door frame system, Forever Firecheck® under their patent GB2546328 where the intumescent material is held in place by the “wrap” Morland apply to their MDF Mouldings, eradicating the need for the traditional plastic encapsulation entirely.
The wrap can be paper, vinyl, veneer or laminate. Tested and approved by Warrington Certifire this innovative fire safety product will be launched at UK Construction Week in October 2018.
Mike Bebb, Morlands’ product manager says; “Morland have unique competencies in the reel application of decorative surfaces so it was a logical step for our factory. We now reel off the graphite strip at 25m per minute as part of our standard production process. Fitting plastic seals is a fiddly process. They flick out on the CNCs, they get lost on site, they work loose overtime and they are unsightly. At a stroke Forever Firecheck® addresses all of those shortcomings and additionally eradicates millions of linear metres of plastic use per year. What’s not to like? “
Launched at the NEC during UK Construction Week; where it was received with considerable interest, Forever Firecheck® also won the 2018 BWF Process Efficiency Award in November. Morland are very pleased to be able to bring this ground-breaking door jamb to market.To view the video, order samples or for more details visit www.morlanduk.com/foreverfirecheck
