New Product: Pocket Door Pro Fire Rated for Bi-parting Doors
by Stephanie Lee
P C Henderson has further expanded its range of pocket door systems with the launch of a brand new fire rated system for bi-parting doors.
Originally launched for single doors back in February 2019 – this latest release of the company’s popular Pocket Door Pro system caters for bi-parting fire doors weighing up to 120kg and is fully certified to FD30 British and European standards.
Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson, commented, “Since launching Pocket Door Pro just over two years ago – the system has quickly grown to become one of our most popular products. Post launch market research quickly told us that demand for a bi-parting fire rated version was high – we listened to this feedback and are delighted to be able to bring this new variation to the market”.
The new system is available in standard and soft closing options, seven different kit sizes, for two different finished wall thicknesses, self-closing and non self-closing variants and a simultaneous action kit available as an optional extra.
“We designed Pocket Door Pro with one key aim in mind – to create one of the most flexible and versatile range of pocket door systems on the market. As the popularity of pocket door systems continues to rise – it’s important that designers and developers have access to a system which can cater for virtually any type of application and in a number of different operation types. We believe we have achieved this through the development of Pocket Door Pro”, continued Andrew.
A detailed and innovative design is what P C Henderson attributes to the products success – features such as push together parts, pre-assembled components and a wide range of optional extras has seen the products popularity soar over the past two years.
The system is designed using a robust aluminium frame making it ideal for new builds and areas of heavy use such as educational buildings, hospitals, hotels, office blocks and disability access areas. The fire rated version comes complete with intumescent seals and is made out of FDC Finger Jointed Laminated Redwood – providing a knot and defect free system – guaranteeing product reliability and longevity.
