Cornell Introduces TranZformŽ Fire Accordion Folding Fire Doors

Horizontal Acting Smoke and Fire Protection with Emergency Egress Capabilities

Mountaintop, Pennsylvania

Cornell introduces TranZform Fire Accordion Folding Fire Doors. Designed to provide automatic closing upon alarm, TranZform Fire units are rated physical barriers that protect buildings and occupants from the spread of fire and smoke. Featuring fail-safe emergency response capabilities, TranZform Fire units can also be used in openings that are part of a required means of egress, are built to order and fit openings of virtually any width, from 3'6" to 22' high.

TranZform Fire units are building code compliant, meeting the IBC Horizontal Sliding Door design criteria for use as egress doors in a means of egress. Up to 3 hour UL fire ratings, UL label smoke rating and FM ratings are available. With clearly marked Emergency Egress Hardware provided as standard, TranZform Fire units comply with the American with Disabilities Act accessibility standards.

TranZform Fire units require less headroom clearance than Rolling Fire Doors. And unlike banks of fire rated swing doors, TranZform Fire stores out of sight, preserving design aesthetics and open floor plan views. It provides an ideal design solution for atriums, the separation of large opening areas, elevator lobbies plus opening protection in fire and smoke rated corridors.

TranZform Fire completes the existing TranZform product line. TranZform Sound, with a STC 45 rating, provides unparalleled sound control while TranZform Space provides convenient space separation and security. Like all Cornell Closure Products, TranZform units are supported by a nationwide network of over 250 installing distributors.

"Cornell is pleased to offer an accordion fire door backed by the project coordination and support that only Cornell can provide," said Steve Gallacher, Vice President of Marketing at Cornell. "The solutions TranZform Fire offers compliments Cornell's full line of emergency response products and operators."

TranZform Fire again demonstrates Cornell's 180-year commitment to meeting the real needs of the market. Whether seeking quality, performance, reliability or overall satisfaction, customers have always known that they're Safe and Secure with Cornell.
