With Nico Technical Representative Duncan Kury active and energised on the Certifire Hardware Panel the company have updated their informative Fire Door Technical Information literature to reflect current Certifire best practice. Intumescent fitting instructions are now available on the Nico website and as a downloadable pdf. These instructions inform the customer of what intumescent was used to achieve the fire ratings of all approved hinges. Clearly customer specific door assembly intumescent requirements ( based on their own testing ) will always override those supplied by a hardware supplier, nonetheless this information can act as a useful guide and indicator.
Nico are currently embarked on a comprehensive revision and expansion of all their Certifire approved products, and more information will be available when testing is completed.
