S200 smoke protection doors


This past week we successfully had our door frames and new double doors tested on smoke protection in accordance with the S200 classification. These doors can be included in an iQ Structural as well as in an iQ Pro wall system.

Smoke is highly dangerous

Research has indicated that more people die in a fire because of smoke than the fire itself. Inhaling smoke is fatal and leads to asphyxiation. This led to new insights into the (fire) safety of buildings and resulted in specific requirements for smoke protection of walls and doors.

New requirement decree on buildings in the living environment

The new decree on buildings in the living environment lays down new, stricter requirements of smoke protection of compartments where different requirements apply to cold and hot smoke. Which classification applies depends on the type and use of a building.

  • Sa Classification for non-sleep buildings such as offices. This departs from smoke with ambient temperature, or “cold smoke”.
  • S200 Classification for buildings people sleep in such as hospitals, hotels, day-care centres. This departs from smoke protection at 200 °C, or “hot smoke”.
  • Non-requirement smoke barriers are no longer fire resistant (unless this concerns sub-BCs and BCs).

QbiQ now also includes smoke protection wall systems in its assortment. If you would like more information then call one of our advisers on  +31 88 5010500
