Trafford Waters

Peel's proposals include large apartments suitable for families and offices alongside a mix of small-shops, leisure and community uses

Fire doors are fitted with an intumescent strip which is fitted around the sides of the door or door frame. This seal lies dormant during normal use, but expands when subjected to extreme heat eliminating the gap between the door and its frame and thus forming a barrier stopping fire and harmful fumes from entering the room.
