Teckentrup’s core expertise is the design and manufacture of fire doors. The intelligent modular system combines precisely attuned functionality with high grade design aesthetics.
Teckentrup has left its mark in on the development of structural fire protection in Germany for decades. Teckentrup was the first company to introduce a fire rated sliding door with approval to DIN4102 fire test standard. It seeks, at all times, to provide best practice choices.
Teckentrup’s approach is best exemplified by its insulated fire doors and the opportunity they provide for architects to specify a commercially competitive, integrity and insulation performance level.
Teckentrup offers a complete design, manufacture and installation solution.
The Teckentrup fire door range includes fire doors CE marked for external use with fire and smoke resistance characteristics (compulsory since Nov 1st 2019) under the harmonised standard BS EN 14351-1: 2006 + A2 2016 and BS EN 16034: 2014.
The UK & Ireland are the only major European markets where it is NOT mandatory to specify steel personnel doors with both insulation and integrity fire ratings...
Why does this matter? In a fire situation an un-insulated, hollow metal door will contain a fire but offer little resistance to the passage of thermally radiated heat.
Levels of up to 33.5 kW/M2 after 30 minutes at 0.5M from the unexposed surface are typically recorded on test, risking harm to people queuing in high traffic, escape corridors. These levels also risk becoming an ignition source for close proximity inflammable materials.
The Teckentrup T60-FSA Fire Resistant steel door is tested to EN1634-1, providing up to 120 minutes integrity and up to 60 minutes insulation, increasing the safety of any people in proximity to the door.
Other manufacturers’ fire tests look like this...
Surface Temperature: 700ºC
Teckentrup fire tests look like this...
Surface Temperature: 180ºC (Max)
Teckentrup understands the language of complex projects; how to design a solution for the building not just a door, but how to provide drawings in the right way, how to deliver the door, how to manage project timeframe shifts, how to work seamlessly within the contract process and provide product of certified and documented capability.
“We have a process - it's called a contract!”
– Project Quantity Surveyor
“Teckentrup understands. We read it, we refer to it. We use it to help you achieve the right result.”
“Non-compliance is everywhere!”
– Design Manager
“We don’t do non-compliance and see the specification and the contract as the simplest route to make things work smoothly for everyone.”
“If we work together and tick the boxes the package should be straightforward.”
– Package Manager
“Working to specification and contract is key; communication with you is central to keeping things moving.”
As a project manager, the success of a major initiative often depends on a small detail.
Teckentrup's frame solutions allow for installation in all site scenarios including variable reveal depths and flush finish with wall renders. The four main types are:
Teckentrup can advise on the right solution and their suitability for applications such as fire, acoustics, etc.
The Hardware, accessories, vision panels, louvres, etc., are all selected to suit application, life cycle value requirements and other criteria, against which Teckentrup can provide certification. Advice on selection and integration with access and building systems such as fire and security is also part of our solution based approach.
