Esstee Engineered Half-Hour rated frame for FIRE DOOR applications

The following engineered meranti frames comply with Class E (SANS 1253:2003) specifications for half-hour fire assemblies, as tested by the SABS:

MF2032 and MF2350

Specified dimensions are as follows:

55x90mm x-section, with rebate of 25x40mm

As components of the assembly, the following are important installation parameters:

- 4 x 100mm x1.2mm thick removable steel hinges equally spaced
- 1st / 4th hinges not more than 150mm from top/bottom inside edge of frame
- Fitting - Clearances between door leaf and frame
* Top Leaf - not to exceed 3mm

* Floor clearance not to exceed 12mm


Standard size for frames is 44x74mm cross section, with rebate suitable for 40mm thick doors.  Internal dimensions are 762/  813/1206/1511/1614mm with internal height of 2032 (cut to 2080) mm. Timber used is imported meranti – no veneers, laminations or finger-joints in the standard frames.

We can also supply customised frames with the above cross-section dimension (eg for 2400mm door height).

We pre-treat frames to ensure that they are protected from damage and staining during the building process. Once installed, the frames can be re-treated to keep their natural wood finish or painted with PVA or enamel (a suitable primer is recommended) to suit the needs of the individual.
