ERA sets the standard for fire safety with FD30 testing

ERA, one of the UK’s leading home security and fenestration component providers, has achieved the FD30 for its TS 008 Nu Mail Shield Letterplate, further extending its dedicated suite of hardware and decorative furniture for fire doors.

Independently tested in accordance with the requirements of BS EN 1634-1: 2014 on a 30-minute timber fire door, the FD30 test evidence demonstrates ERA’s continued commitment to providing fabricators with solutions that comply with the latest standards.

 Supplied with comprehensive test evidence and documentation, door manufacturers can be confident that when they contact their test body to assess their door substrate, the ERA  letterplate will provide the highest standards of fire performance for the required 30 minutes.

As well as providing the highest standards of fire safety performance, the letterplate also offers unrivalled levels of security, having been specifically designed to prevent access through the letterplate via fishing or reaching, with a restricted flap protecting the property within.

This test evidence further enhances ERA’s extensive portfolio of fire door hardware and decorative furniture. This includes ERA’s Fortress 3* cylinder, SureFire multi-point lock, door viewer, door chain and numerals, in addition to the Fab&Fix Balmoral door handles, Windsor door handles and Nu Mail letterplate; which have been tested to FD30 BS 476, FD30 EN 1634 and FD60 BS 476

Ben Penson, Technical Innovation and Improvement Director at ERA, commented: “Our latest FD30 test evidence reflects our continued dedication to manufacturing hardware that meets the most demanding performance standards and fulfils the necessary requirements for our fabrication partners.

“By extending our range of independently tested solutions, we are able to provide manufacturers with a complete offering of hardware that can be used across a wide range of fire doors to ensure the highest levels of safety and durability.”

The letterplate has also undergone thorough independent testing to conform to the TS 008:2015 security standard, whilst also meeting the requirements of PAS 24 and Secured by Design to provide the highest standards of protection.
