Once again raising the bar and extending its range of durable, dependable fire-rated products, pioneering Astraseal has become the first fabricator to manufacture a 60-minute rated, fixed fire window.
Instead of traditional hardwood or steel, Astraseal’s unique fire window system is based on the proven FireFrame from Winkhaus, combining durable composite and uPVC materials for advanced fire resistance. Add to this Astraseal’s fire-retardant sealed units and the new window system can provide a long-lasting barrier for both internal and external uses.
“Through upgrading our FD60 fire door solution, we saw the incredible potential FireFrame could offer as a fixed fire window system,” comments Zac Nedimovic, Sales and Marketing Manager at Astraseal. “Six months on from Grenfell and the spotlight is still heavily focused on fire-rated products and their performance. With our fire window system, installers can deliver a new level of fire protection along with a full suite of quality, certified fire-rated products that can provide a great assurance and peace of mind to their customers.”
The new fire window system is available in a range of sizes in both single and double fixed pane configurations. Designed for use in any residential or commercial application, the window offers incredibly slim, internal sightlines along with dependable durability and strength thanks to its, innovative hybrid frame.
The 60-minute fire window strengthens Astraseal’s industry-leading fire-rated product line, joining their range of uPVC and composite FD30 and FD60 fire door systems. As well as offering its brand-new 60-minute solution, Astraseal also offers the RAUFERNO uPVC fire-window system. Based on REHAU’s Total 70 profile and the popular S706 window, the RAUFERNO is a high-performance 30-minute alternative.
“It’s great to see our fire-rated product range is proving popular across the UK, providing a first-class solution whether it’s social housing, commercial developments or new-build residential projects,” adds Zac. “Astraseal are the go-to supplier when it comes to fire products and we only see this continuing with our new 60-minute fire-window - an exciting development to drive forward fire-rated products and fire safety.”
With one of the biggest portfolios in the industry, Astraseal has built a strong reputation for high-quality aluminium and uPVC products including windows, doors and conservatories. For over 30-years, operating from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, Astraseal’s ethos has been to offer exceptional products with customer service that goes above and beyond.
