2 : Handing

Education Range - Handing

Ahmarra Handing Convention

Standing on the non-hinge side (door opening away), if the door opens towards the right then it is a right handed door. If it opens toward the left it is a left handed door.

3 : Dimensions

Education Range - Door Dimensions

Dimensions can be given for the structural opening and/or required door size

Ahmarra recommend selecting standard sizes:

A1: Structural-opening height
A2: Structural-opening width
B: Frame Depth

4 : Fire Rating

Each door should have the correct fire rating associated, NFR, FD30 & FD60 (FD90 on request). This should be derived from the building’s fire strategy, by a professional.

Fire Door Ratings
Fire ratings for fire door assemblies are stated in minutes and prefixed by the letters ‘FD’: e.g. FD30 refers to a 30-minute fire door or fire doorset; in other words, one that offers at least 30 minutes of protection against fires.The most commonly specified integrity levels are:

  • NFR – None fire rated
  • FD30 – 30 minutes
  • FD60 – 60 minutes
  • FD90 – 90 minutes

 

NFR FD30 FD60

5 : Acoustic Rating

If acoustic sealing is a requirement for your project, ensure each door has an associated acoustic rating. Ahmarra offer 30, 35 or 40 Rw(dB) as standard for our Education Range doorsets.

If you would like to know more about acoustic ratings, please read our technical guidance here.
