P C Henderson expands range of Pocket Door Systems with new bi-parting fire rated system

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 120 kg and is fully certified to FD30 British and European standards. 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. Andrew Royle, Sales and Marketing Director at P C Henderson, commented: “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”.

Samuel Heath and SIMONSWERK, two of the industry’s leading designers and manufacturers of architectural ironmongery, have created Powermatic Axis, a controlled, concealed door closer which opens more opportunities for specifiers wishing to maintain a clean appearance to doors and interiors. The door closer is specifically designed to work with SIMONSWERK’s popular TECTUS concealed hinge system. In addition to fully adjustable closing speed, it also features vertically adjustable anchor plates, making it compatible with the adjustability of the TECTUS hinge. The door closer carries both UKCA and CE marks and is suitable for use on one-hour and half-hour fire doors. It will also enable doors to meet relevant accessibility requirements stipulated by Approved Document M and BS 8300-2: 2018. With both the TECTUS hinge and Powermatic Axis door closer being totally concealed when the door is closed, the combination of both products assures the aesthetics of the door and facilitates continuity of design throughout the project.
