            • You can combine burglar-resistance with an escape door function in the combination door. It is therefore no longer necessary to make concessions in relation to safety and burglar-resistance. Read more about this unique combination on the burglar-resistant escape doors page.
            • The MFT model sound-insulating fire door is 120 minutes fire resistant in accordance with the new European fire standard (EN 1634-1), which will go into effect throughout all of Europe. In addition, this door has a high sound insulation rating of 49 dB.

            We would be pleased to advise you concerning additional possibilities in relation to available features and customisation. Do not hesitate to contact us for additional information.
