Doors for hotels are an important element for the furniture and structuring of accommodation facilities. This type of furniture should respect precise characteristics in order to guarantee safety and durability.
In particular, as regards the fundamental aspect of safety the doors for hotels must be REI certified, that is to say that architectural elements are fireproof.
This type of interior door is the best not only for hotels and guesthouses, but also for other types of accomodation facilities such as residences, communities and schools.
The acronym REI, when applied to doors for hotels (but not only), means specific characteristics:
- R is the mechanical resistance to fire exposure for a given number of minutes
- E is the ability to prevent the passage or the production of fire or smoke to the opposite side of the one where the fire flares up
- I is the thermal insulation approach to reduce the transmission of heat from one side of the door to the other, as well as to maintain within specified limits (generally around 150 degrees) the temperature of the door.
As already mentioned, all the REI doors for hotels must be subjected to a specific certification that follows precise laboratory tests. The fire resistance must not concern only the surface of the door, but also the other components of the item, such as the handle, the hinges and gaskets.
In particular, the gaskets must be intumescent: they must swell with the heat without melting or burning, or produce noxious fumes.
These are some of the most important characteristics concerning the doors for hotels which, however, do not have the sole purpose of guarding staff and guests from the danger of fire. In the choice of doors for hotels, the accomodation structures must in fact also refer to specific aesthetic and functional characteristics so as to give rise to harmonic and elegant environments, consistent with the brand image that they represent.
