fireproof door cross sectionIn the face of stiff competition, Sapa Building System in Germany recently won an order for 600 fireproof doors for a new office building in Munich.

“The order is one of our biggest ever,” says sales and marketing manager Udo Büchel. “It marks a breakthrough for Sapa into the German market for fireproof products, which has grown rapidly since the fire at Düsseldorf Airport in 2004. Since then a growing number of public buildings have been designed with fireproof partitions, and emergency exit routes have been improved.”

Sapa has been offering fireproof products since 2005. They are thoroughly tested and able to meet very strict requirements.

The Secur II door is made from 75-millimetre anodised or painted aluminium profiles and 7–32 millimetre-thick glass. It has no filling, but can still resist extremely high temperatures – exceeding 800 °C for around 30 minutes.
