Allgood ironmongery and doorsets are helping to provide exceptional fire safety at the new state of the art science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) facilities at Kingston University, London.

The new chemistry and pharmaceuticals laboratories are providing students with an ultra-modern environment benefiting from state-of-the-art equipment. Door specification was of high importance for a laboratory environment containing flammable, toxic and dangerous chemicals.

Allgood supplied 15 doorsets with traditional exposed lippings to provide extra protection to the door faces and ensure they can be easily repaired and replaced if necessary. Along with the doorsets, Alite levers, latches, surface maglocks and hinges were installed, providing the laboratories with fire protection for up to 30 minutes.

A special laminate finish to the laboratory doors was also applied to further boost fire door safety.
