Clyde Court

Replacement fire doors for 46 bed sheltered housing block Clyde Court, situated in Camden, London.

Clyde Court, situated in Camden, is a 46-bed sheltered housing block. The first of seven sheltered housing schemes across the borough to be completed, this project included the installation 115 replacement fire doors, with a further six blocks planned as part of an ongoing programme.

The installation was completed by Mila Maintenance & Installation who are BM Trada Q-Mark approved installers and specialists in repairs and installation within the social housing, large scale private rented, commercial building, student living, care home and fire safety sectors.

The project saw the replacement of 115 doorsets with Sentry Doors FD30’s (providing 30 minute protection). All FD30’s are independently tested to BS476: Part 22. FD30 and EN1634-1 and dual certified with certification for both Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacture and Q-Mark Enhanced Security for our FD30 Flat Entrance Doors. Each doorset is fitted with a Winkhaus AV2 locking system which means that as soon as the door is closed, automatic locking takes place without the need to lift a handle. The locked door can then be open internally by depressing a handle or operating a thumb-turn cylinder.

The door designs were a variety of FED11 and FED20 styles and the residents were given the opportunity to choose from four colours. The selected ironmongery was Polished Chrome which complemented the chosen paint finishes. These styles were fitted to the front of their properties and the adjoining bin stores. Additional doors were fitted to stairwells and other communal areas.

Speaking about Sentry Doors, Mila Maintenance said:

“We all know that the installation of fire doors is a highly specialised field of operation and our teams are all fully trained and accredited to carry out their jobs on site.”

“What is equally important to us is having a supply chain partner that we can truly rely on. Across all the sectors we operate in reliable and robust supply chain partners are critical to enable us to deliver the outstanding service we demand of ourselves, and which our clients and their residents also rightly demand.”

“In such a critical field as fire safety, where people’s lives are literally at stake, it is even more important that we have a supply chain partner we can rely on, both in terms of delivery, and in terms of the quality and high level of compliance of their product. Sentry Doors fit that bill.”
