Safety and security in precarious situations with Merford’s tunnel and emergency-exit doors

Do you need a fire-resistant emergency-exit door, for example for use in tunnels? With Merford’s tunnel and emergency-exit doors you can rest assured that you comply with safety standards.

Why do you need a tunnel or emergency-exit door?

Our emergency-exit doors, available as sliding or hinged doors, are easy to operate and provide a high level of fire safety. This means they are ideal for use as emergency-exit and access doors in buildings such as multi-storey car parks and business premises and even in road tunnels.

Properties of a tunnel or emergency-exit door

Merford tunnel doors can withstand high temperatures and have a high level of fire resistance. The amount of force required to open the doors is low, which means they are suitable for emergency situations. Rijkswaterstaat (part of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment) sets high standards when it comes to tunnel doors – standards which our tunnel doors meet. MHC tunnel doors are fitted with a double-walled door leaf manufactured from an electrolytically galvanised steel sheet. The doors are fitted with internal insulation and fire-resistant material. They are supplied with a 4-mm-thick frame and are available as hinged or sliding doors.
