Design & Function

Design & Function

Meeting the needs of the doorset environment is key. In existing buildings the challenge of uneven and unusual structures means having a range of options to address these is essential.

Our designs stand the test of time with features to assist in the longevity of the doorset, in ease of maintenance and maintenance cost reduction.

We have a substantial library of Gerda Security primary-owned test evidence for fire resistance, smoke leakage and acoustics. Our designs are founded on the same fundamental composition and construction to give consistency in performance.

With digital traceability through the G-Smart App, the doorset’s ‘DNA’ can be accessed including its unique reference; specification, installation and any repairs, including scheduled maintenance.

Smoke Control

Smoke Control

Communal doorsets in lobby or corridors and stairwells are designed to provide compartmentation, means of escape and to enable the Fire and Rescue Service to carry out their operational duties.

Our doorsets are designed to protect the compartmented areas from smoke leakage and spread of toxic gases and black smoke.

We test our communal doorset ranges, for both FDS Complete™ FD30(S) and FDS Complete™ FD60(S) ranges for single and double doorsets in full scale smoke tests.

Having seen the doorsets’ performance in actual fires preventing smoke and fire spread and protecting the compartmented area, Gerda Security have been highlighting the importance of smoke control through smoke pod demonstrations for over 12 years.

Innovation

Innovation

Our innovative fully tested and certified hardwood timber modular frame system with interlocking frames enables easy fitting on site and assists with the correct installation of the doorset.

This improves the installation process, saves time and means that the product is easier to transport and move, all of which assist in greater efficiencies.

Our doorsets are all supplied as complete finished products with a unique reference, tailored to size and to specification for their opening with sidepanels, top panels, fanlights – all shipped together but as separate sections able to be interlocked on site.

The complete doorset configuration is labelled with its unique reference for traceability.

Fire Safety

Fire Safety

Gerda Security Products design, develop and comprehensively test our communal doorsets to provide class-leading compliance and to ensure they are able to operate effectively for their lifetime.

Our primary-owned test evidence conducted at UKAS test houses is based on innovative design in a range of configurations and hardware options for stairwells, foyers, lobbies and cross-corridors.

All primary tests are based on the same fundamental design composition and construction to ensure consistency of performance.

Existing buildings vary in style and age, and we are able to survey, manufacture to size and offer durable complete tested solutions.
