We are pleased to announce that our Soterian Slim TS008 letterplate has gained Certifire approval from Warringtonfire Testing and Certification Limited. The Soterian Slim is now FD30 rated, which approves it for use with a variety of door assemblies, including timber faced and edged leaves with timber, cellulosic or mineral cores in timber, having fire resistance of 30 minutes. An FD30 rating ensures that the letterplate can block the spread of fire for up to 30 minutes, which is an essential safety net in the event of a fire. The intumescent liners from Vanquish Hardware Protection Ltd supplied by UAP are integral to the overall effectiveness of the letterplate’s fire resistance on either face.

Letterplates fitted at many residential properties may need to be TS008 for PAS 24:2016 compliance and Document Q approval. But not all compliant letter plates are bulky. The Soterian range from UAP Ltd features a pivoting stay mechanism, which reduces the internal flap projection to just 35mm from the door surface, giving a less intrusive feel to the door and enabling the door to open fully without the risk of any damage to the interior wall. The absence of fixings to the TS 008 Soterian letter plate’s exterior further enhances security by preventing anyone from unscrewing the outer section from the door.

Both the Soterian and Soterian Slim ranges have been rigorously tested for 20,000 cycles to prove long-term performance. They are available in a variety of colours and finishes to match existing décor and individual tastes.

Further product development at UAP Ltd has now resulted in an even slimmer letterplate option in the patent-pending Soterian Slim range, which offers an internal flap projection of just 14mm slimmer – by 21mm – frame for a sleek and modern look. The restricted opening helps protect against both key fishing and thumbturn cylinder manipulation, while the slim, discreet design is both practical and unobtrusive. The original Soterian model is also available with Certifire approval for FD30 and FD60 doorsets.
