Introducing the new RJ007 slimline letterplate

Lorient – leading manufacturer of high-performance sealing systems is delighted to offer a new slimline fire & security rated letterplate into its door hardware protection range for FD30 and FD60 minute applications.

When letterplates are added to fire doors; elements of the fire-resistant door core are removed and replaced with ironmongery which has a higher thermal conductivity. This can create a weak point in the door, where fire can take hold and affect the integrity of the doorset. That’s why fire-rated ironmongery must be used on timber doorsets and be tested to a relevant standard – often accompanied by an intumescent kit.

The new slimline RJ007 letterplate from Lorient combines fire and security performance with functionality and aesthetics. Designed to meet the exacting security standards of TS008:2015, it is tested to withstand a series of physical tests based on the common methods of burglary. It features an innovative pivoting stay mechanism that reduces the opening to 37 degrees for protection against key ‘fishing’ and lock manipulation.

The RJ007 can provide up to 30 and 60 minutes fire resistance and is tested in accordance BS 476-22:1987; and smoke tested in accordance with BS EN 1634-3:2004. It is CERTIFIRE (CF5688) approved from Warringtonfire Testing & Certification Limited; and is TS008: 2015 accredited and Document Q and PAS 24:2016 compliant.

The RJ007 slimline letterplate is available in a range of colours and finishes, including silver, polished silver, gold, black, and white.
