November News from Mann McGowan

Welcome to our November News…

In this newsletter we are focussing on the importance of fire doors and what to check for to ensure your doors are compliant.  We will also be discussing our Pyrogrille air transfer grilles and meeting Ali Kaye our newest recruit to the team!

Kind regards,
Jamie Scott
Managing Director

 

Pyrogrille – air transfer/ventillation grilles for fire resisting doors

Pyrogrille air transfer grilles are manufactured from high performance intumescent slats, spaced 12mm apart and 38mm thick. Pyrogrille units can be fixed into fire resisting doors or timber stud partitions using a hardwood or steel flange. Alternatively wood screws can be used through the perimeter of the units. Gaps around the Pyrogrille unit greater than 3mm should be fire sealed using Pyromas A intumescent sealant.
