Kaba’s range of Unican push button locks (PBL), when fitted with Kaba Intumescent Door Kits, have been successful in fire tests to BS EN 1634-1, for up to 60 minutes duration. Both the Simplex and Eplex range of push button locks were tested along with their intumescent protection. Assessments proved the push button locks, when fitted with the intumescent material, are non detrimental to the integrity and performance of the fire doors.The correct Kaba Intumescent Door Kits must be fitted to the relevant push button lock for use on a fire door, in accordance with the fire assessment.
"Anyone specifying or purchasing door hardware has a legal duty of care to ensure that the products are safe to use on the fire doors to which they will be fitted. KABA now provides this evidence, so that Unican push button locks can be specified and used on fire doors".
