Certifire has certified UAP’s Soterian Slim TS008 letterplate. The certification means the product can be safely installed in timber FD30 fire doors without the need for further testing. Certifire is recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide as an international mark of fire safety across a range of passive fire products. The certification process for the Soterian Slim was carried out by Warringtonfire, a global leader in fire safety services.
Julian Roberts, UAP’s technical services director, said: “The Certifire certification follows a rigorous assessment. This involves factory production audits at each site where the product is manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 and additional requirements of the Certifire scheme. The process has independently verified the performance and quality of the Soterian Slim, ensuring installers and end users can make an informed decision when selecting the product.”
Designed for 44mm-70mm composite, timber and PVC-U doors, the Soterian Slim measures 298mm x 98mm, with a flap projection of 14mm. The design includes a pivoting serrated stay system that limits the flap opening to 39° to protect against key fishing and lock manipulation.
As well as its robust security and fire safety features, the product aims to eliminate bulkiness on the interior face of the door, providing a more aesthetic solution. The letterplate ensures that a door can open fully without damaging the letterplate or interior wall.
