FD120 Hardware Installation

1. Hinges
The following hinges have been successfully tested within the FCH120 doorset and are therefore approved for use:

Hinge

R120 butt hinge HIS-BSS-102 (brushed stainless steel )

Number of Hinges

3no (1½ pairs) per leaf

Positions

The top hinge must be positioned 150-180mm down from the head of the leaf to the top of the hinge and the bottom hinge positioned 180-250mm up from the foot of the leaf to the bottom of the hinge. The middle hinge(s) must be either equispaced between the top and bottom hinge, or 200-250 below the top hinge.

Fixings

No.10 Steel screws, having thread for the full length, 50 mm long for fixing into the door leaf and 32 mm long for fixing into the frame.

Additional Protection

Intumescent protection will be supplied by Forza with all hardware where required and must be incorporated.


2. Mortice Latches/Locks
The following lock/latch has been successfully tested with the door leaves assessed:

Latch/Lock Types

R120 sashlock BOM-LCK -103

Positioning

Centre line of spindle 1020mm above the bottom of the door leaf

Additional Protection

Intumescent protection will be supplied by Forza with all hardware where required and must be incorporated

 3. Door Closers

The following door closer has been successfully tested with the door leaves assessed:

Overhead Closer - R120 power closer CLR-BSS-103 
                  

4. Non-Essential Hardware Items

4.1. Push Plate, Kick Plates, etc

Plastic, PVC or metal plates may be surface-mounted to the doorsets, but if more than 800mm in length by nominally 200mm wide, they must be attached in a way that would prevent them distorting the door leaf, e.g. glued with thermally softening adhesive or screwed with short aluminium screws and fitted in such a way so they will not be prevented from falling away by being trapped under door stops, glazing beads or handle escutcheons etc.

4.2 Pull Handles

These may be surface fixed to the doorsets, provided that the fixing points are no greater than 1000mm apart. Through fixings are not permitted.

 

CORE FCW120

1. HINGES
The following hinges have been successfully tested within the FCW90 door set and are therefore approved for use:

Hinge

Royde & Tucker Hi Load H105 or 207 lift-off type.

Also Fixed pin, washered butt ball bearing butt or journal supported.

Number of Hinges

3no (1½ pairs) per leaf

Positions

Top hinges to be set 200mm and 400mm down from the leaf head to the top of the hinge with the bottom hinge set 200mm up from the bottom of the leaf to the bottom of the hinge. (All positions +/-25mm)

Fixings

Steel screws, as recommended by the hinge manufacturers, but in no case smaller than No.8 (3.8mm diameter) by 32mm long and having thread full length. Position of screws (in relation to the door face) in blades of alternative hinge shall be similar to hinges Royde & Tucker.

Hinge Blade Sizes

2.4 - 3.5mm thick by 89 - 110mm by 30 - 32mm wide. (These dimensions refer to the blade size, i.e. the part of the hinges that are recessed into the edge of the leaves / frames)

Hinge Materials

Steel or Stainless Steel. (Aluminium, Nylon or Mazac are not permitted.) No combustible or thermally softening materials to be included.

Additional Protection

All hinge blades must be bedded on minimum 1mm thick non-pressure forming intumescent material.

Rising butt, non-cranked butts and spring hinges (single or double action) are not suitable for use in this generic assessment but may be suitable subject to an individual specific evaluation.

2. MORTICE LATCHES/LOCKS

Latch/Lock Types

Mortice latches, tubular mortice latches, sashlocks, deadlocks.

Maximum Dimensions

Forend plate - 235mm long x 22mm wide

Latch body - 18mm thick

Strikeplate - 165mm long x 22mm wide

Positions

Mortice latches or locks should be centred at 1000mm (+/-200mm) above the bottom of the door leaf.

Materials

Latches must have no essential part of their structure made from polymeric or other low melting point (<800C) materials and should not contain any flammable materials.

Additional Protection

The latch keep must be bedded on minimum 1mm thick non-pressure forming intumescent material.


Over morticing is to be avoided; mortices should be as tight as possible to the latch. If gaps around the case exceed 2mm,then the gap must be made good with intumescent mastic. Holes for spindles should be kept as small as is compatible with the operation of the hardware.

Where glazing apertures are fitted to the leaf and are positioned such that locks/latches are included in the margin between aperture and door edge then the margin must be at least 75mm wider than the lock/latch mortice. If the mortice latch/lock is fitted in line with a 'rail' between apertures, no part of the lock mortice shall be closer than 50mm to the edge of any aperture.


3.  DOOR CLOSERS
Each hinged door leaf must be fitted with a self-closing device of the correct power rating for the width and weight of the leaf (minimum power size 3), be fitted according to the manufacturer's instructions for an FD120 rated closer and be adjusted so that it is capable of fully closing the leaf against any friction imposed by the latch (and smoke seals if fitted) from any position of closing.

Only face fixed overhead door closers (and accessories such as soffit brackets) that have been tested, assessed or otherwise approved for use on unlatched cellulosic door leaves may be used. Any accessory that is located within the door reveal must have manufacturer's appropriate test or assessment evidence.

Where areas of uninsulated glazing are adjacent to the closer, the selected closer type must have been tested on the unexposed face of an uninsulated steel door, or a fully glazed door with uninsulating glass to demonstrate that the closer does not emit flammable fluids onto the glass face that would otherwise cause integrity failure before the required 120 minute integrity.


4. NON-ESSENTIAL HARDWARE
4.1 Push Plates, Kick Plates etc.

Plastic, PVC or metal plates may be surface mounted to door leaves but if more than 800mm in length x 200mm wide they must be attached in a way that would prevent them distorting the door leaf, e.g. glued with thermally softening adhesive or screwed with short aluminium screws and fitted in such a way so they will not be prevented from falling away by being trapped under door stops, glazing beads or handle escutcheons etc.

4.2 Pull Handles
These may be fixed to the doorsets provided that the fixing points are no greater than 500mm apart. Pull handles that are fixed through the leaf should use clearance holes as close fitting as possible to the bolt.

4.3 Drop Seals
Lorient IS8010 or Norsound Nor 810S threshold dropseals can be fitted into the bottom edge of FD120 leaves providing that they are encased in 1mm thick non-pressure forming intumescent material and are positioned centrally within the leaf thickness.
