Take the right steps to combat fire
More and more commercial businesses and homeowners are going through a period of financial consolidation to optimise space in existing properties by moving upwards rather than moving out.
Notably, homeowners are making better use of their lofts for storage and many businesses increase storage space through the use of mezzanine floors and also utilise flat roof space to locate such things as plant, motor and boiler rooms.
Access is a key consideration of this move upwards and global specialist Premier Loft Ladders is already established as the No1 choice for industrial, commercial and domestic stairway solutions. In particular, its popular Supreme range of superbly engineered aluminium concertina-style, easy-to-fit counter balance stairways, with fire resistant casings, is proving a real winner across all business and domestic applications.
Manufactured from high strength die-cast aluminium alloy components, the Supreme stairway is attached to a 1.5 mm steel hatchbox, and a trapdoor made from two layers of 1.5 mm steel infilled with 38 mm of mineral wool for fire resistance to 30 minutes and 75 mm for resistance to 90 minutes.
There is a 29mm wide lip to the bottom of the lining around the external edge which is designed to butt up against the ceiling to help prevent flame and smoke ingress. Similarly, a lip to the bottom of the steel trapdoor extends to within 15 mm of the lip on the lining.
The Supreme is suitable for a maximum floor to ceiling height of 4600mm and, in addition to being offered with 30 or 90 minute fire resistant casings, it is available with a host of other options. These include electrical operation, vertical access, suspended ceiling application, top operating mechanism, telescopic handrail, upper level guardrail and a double seal to the roof hatch to improve energy saving.
Premier supplies four different types of aluminium loft ladder – the Supreme, the Mini, the Elite and the Piccolo, together with an ever increasing selection of 3 part folding and 2 part wooden ladders. Its products are suitable in a wide variety of situations and all comply with EN 14975 (DN 4570) standards.
Prices across the entire Premier range are extremely competitive. In fact, the company will match the price of any like for like product found at a lower price elsewhere!
