Backfilling corner frames on T30-1 N2/50 and T30-2 N22/50 fire resistant door units with Novoferm fire protection foam is tested to the criteria of EN 1634-1 and building code approved as per DIN 4102-5. As such, an additional and professional variant is available for installing T30 fire resistant doors made by Novoferm that saves considerable time and cost, especially when renovating or modernizing existing properties – as demonstrated by the widespread experience of metalworkers and fitters in practice.

“Installation time cut by more than 20 percent”
One of the first contractors to use Novoferm fire protection foam in practice was Gerhard Banach, Managing Partner of Bauelemente Banach GbR based in Lindlar.
Having been in the business for more than 35 years and having installed somewhere between 1,000 and 1,500 doors every year, his experienced opinion is very clear: “Foam installation is at least 20 percent faster than mortar by direct comparison.”
Installation foreman Uwe Rein, who has been working at Banach for nearly 30 years, goes even further: “Foam installation eliminates the need for a lot of ancillary works, such as preparing the mortar, covering the floor, and tidying and cleaning up the building site and equipment, which is often a time-consuming task. Depending on the installation situation, using fire protection foam can even save up to half the time.”
Position the frame
Step 1: Position the frame Using Novoferm fire protection foam to backfill frames is approved for T30-1 N2/50 or T30-2 N22/50 fire resistant doors up to 1350 x 2500 mm (1 leaf) or 3000 x 3000 mm (2 leaf) with corresponding corner frame in masonry or concrete. The corner frame is fastened as usual in compliance with applicable installation rules using a choice of bolts, plugs, or weld-on installation.
Step 2: Backfill with fire protection foam
Step 2: Backfill with fire protection foam Once the frame has been properly fastened, and all dust removed from the cavity between frame and wall, water is sprayed into the cavity as the dampness makes the foam expand more effectively. Using a foam gun, the cavity is then entirely filled with foam in two phases, first the area at the back, then the part at the front. Then leave the foam to dry for at least 30 minutes. For purposes of documenting approval compliant installation, the foam can has a detachable self-adhesive label that is stuck on the declaration of conformity.
Step 3: Make the wall connection
Step 3: Make the wall connection Once the foam has hardened (min. 30 minutes) the overhang is simply cut off with a sharp knife or cutter. Depending on the fastening variant, the transition between frame and wall can then be plastered over or (on the opposite hinge side) cleanly covered with an optional self-adhesive plastic profile with soft lip, which can be painted over.
Step 4: Install door panel and accessories
Step 4: Install door panel and accessories The door panel, handle set, sealing profile and any other accessories, such as overhead door closer or panic lock, are then installed as normal, utterly irrespective of the type of frame backfilling.
