Smoke control door
The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB part of BRE Global) sets the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are applied in fire and security sectors around the world.
Loss Prevention Standard, LPS 1056: Issue 6.2, Requirements for the LPCB approval and listing of fire doorsets, lift landing doors and shutters, Published by BRE Global Ltd in 2014, states: ‘For the purpose of this document the term smoke control door comprises any doorset or shutter assembly, including any frame or guide, door leaf or leaves, rolling or folding curtain, etc., which is provided to give a smoke control capability when used for closing off permanent openings in separating elements of construction, including apertures for lift landing doors. This includes any side panels, vision panels, or transom panels together with door hardware and any seals (whether provided for the purpose of smoke control and / or fire resistance or for other purposes such as draught or acoustic reduction) which form part of the assembly.’
