Working with their exclusive UK distributor James Latham, German door blank manufacturer Moralt, continues to invest heavily in independent fire-rating, smoke resistance and acoustic insulation testing of its extensive range of internal and external performance door blanks both in the UK and Germany.

With a number of successful results and accreditations being achieved from TRADA following intensive testing over the past six months, James Latham can now offer their customers in the UK, the added reassurance that they are specifying a product which is not only safe, legal and fit for purpose, but one that is truly market leading.
The results not only demonstrate a substantial improvement in the performance of the doors, but the manufacturing and construction modifications made to achieve these results have delivered an added benefit, a cost reduction which will also be passed on to James Latham’s customers.

Since July this year, both Moralt FireSound and FireSmoke doors have achieved significantly improved ratings in a series of tests across a number of fire and acoustic industry standards.

Steven Dennard, Group Door Manager for James Latham commented, “This is great news for us as well as our customers. This latest set of test results really does put Moralt firmly back in the game. The FireSound and FireSmoke door blanks deliver numerous features and benefits and now, with independent accreditation to back them up, they offer much stronger specification appeal and reaction from the market has already been extremely positive.”

As well as the Moralt FireSound and FireSmoke range, James Latham is now also offering a Moralt PassiveHouse compliant doorkit, supplied complete with Meranti frame, ironmongery, and a 98mm thick door blank. The door blank is supplied part processed/CNC'd for the double-rebate detail along with lock and hinge fixings and the kit is CE-Marked – EN14351-1, External Windows & Doors.
