Fire rated sliding doors.

Postby lynx » Thu Oct 07, 2010 10:14 pm

I need to costs to upgrade a set in doors that open into a cinema room, from hinged to sliding. I'm hoping that the doors can slide
behind my furniture but i have to obtain at least FD30. I was thinking of just purchasing a pocket door system that is already tested, and wrapping my furniture around it. Anyone see any other options here?

The doors themselves, i will buy in, and veneer. It's the framing around the doors I'm worried about. These systems allow you to integrate into the new build, as part of the wall. I will be adding this to the face on an existing brick built wall, and placing my furniture over the top. Thinking about it now, I think this will work so will submit details to building control was approval.

Changing the subject, but I'm allowed, it's my topic. Matty, how you getting on with that sander. Got the 400 Abranet on the festool but still fine duct about and I'm after that smoooooooth dust free finish. ;)
