WHAT IS FRAMEFIT?
FrameFit is a fully tested product that fits directly onto door frames, reducing gap sizes to meet current fire door regulations, for both 30 minute and 60 minute fire doors. Fire door inspectors will conclude a fire door is “non-compliant” if the gaps are over 4mm between the door leaf edge (2No sides and head) and frame. This also applies to gaps at the bottom of the door if over 8mm (depending on door manufacturer this could be a 10mm gap) Until now the only remedy for excessive gaps is to replace the door with a new one.
FrameFit is designed with ease of fitting in mind. A choice of thickness's are available, 1.5mm (with or without smoke seal) & 3mm and 5mm (no smoke seal) to suit varying gaps.
Two widths are available 44mm to suit FD30 doors and 54mm to suit FD60 doors.
System Components: HE1.5 Fire & Smoke Seal
HE1.5/44 (FD30) or HE1.5/54 (FD60) - High Expansion Intumescent
Designed to be used as the top layer where a fire & cold smoke seal is required. Commonly used when the existing fire & smoke seal is routed into the door frame. Simply remove the existing seals and cover over the groove with the suitable LM profile allowing room for the HE1.5 profile to be fitted as the top layer (smoke seal against the door stop)
LM/44 or LM/54 - Low Modulus fire retardant spacer profile.
There are 3No thicknesses available (1.5mm, 3mm, 5mm) either 44mm wide (FD30) or 54mm wide (FD60) Designed to be used in varying combinations to reduce the gaps. If the existing fire & smoke seals are in the door edge, LM profiles can be used without the need for HE1.5.

How to use Fireplug FD FrameFit
1 Select the correct profile to suit the door’s fire rating:
#FD30 = 44mm wide / FD60 = 54mm wide
2 Measure the existing gap between door edge and frame to determine which frame fit components will be required to reduce the gaps to be between 2mm to 4mm wide/deep.. (see Guide under)
3 Cut and fit each of the chosen components to the door frame only. Remembering to fit the intumescent fillet last of all so it faces the door edge without any obstructions.
4 Fix each LM profile initially using the double sided adhesive tape found on the back of each profile. Once all spacers are in place screw/pin fix through all layers into the door frame @ 400mm centres.
5 If a smoke seal is required, the HE1.5 profile is fitted as the top layer.
