Pacific VP120-S Sliding Fire Door Set -/120/60


The VP120-S sliding fire door set is used where a large opening in a fire separation (up to 10m2) is required to be closed off in the event of a fire and/or in daily use.

The slider may be concealed behind an appropriate cavity wall. Automatic opening and closing is not currently available for Sliding Fire Doors. 

The VP120-S is a sliding fire door set. The door leaf can be faced in plywood or steel sheet, and is capped with steel channel to 4 edges and hung from a sliding track system.
