Yeoman Shield Celebrate over 20 Years of their Fire Rated Door Edge Protector



Yeoman Shield are pleased to celebrate the longevity and continuing popularity of their Door Edge Protector, which was the first and original PVCu Fire Rated Door Edge Protector to be established in the market place.

For over 20 years this product has truly come into its own as the market leader, both in design and fire tested performance, providing Architects, Specifiers, Customers, etc. with a cost effect alternative to replacement/new fire doors .

Yeoman Shield Door Edge Protectors are unique with a 2.0 mm Vinylac outer and 9mm thick specially formulated PVCu reinforced centre core, designed to take the impact from the heaviest blows received from footfall, wheeled trolleys and equipment. They can be installed on the leading and hinged edge of a door to protect from impact damage.

Impact damage can cause splits and gaps that can widen between the door, frame and meeting edge, which on a fire door can be potentially dangerous as the spread of smoke and flame may be possible through these gaps. It can therefore lead to the non-compliance of a fire door and frame.

The application of a Yeoman Shield Fire Rated Door Edge Protector to a fire door will not affect the fire integrity. It will reduce damage caused by impact, and in certain situations it can also be fitted to reduce the offending gaps, bringing the door back to an acceptable working standard.

In turn this will extend the lifecycle of the doors, reducing the amount of time and money spent on the repair and replacement of damaged doors.

The Fire Rated Door Edge Protectors from Yeoman Shield have full Test Certification and Assessment Reports which can be obtained on request by contacting the Sales Office.

Available in FD30 or FD60, Square, Radius or Double Swing style, with the relevant fire or fire & smoke intumescent seals, in a range of colours and finishes to choose from, including – soon to be launched - a new Woodgrain effect.
