With the upcoming Christmas holiday break, Norseal would like to remind business owners, school officials and commercial landlords of the opportunity to improve health and safety in buildings.
While people are on leave, completing some quick construction updates can make a significant impact on future health and safety levels.
Norseal offer a range of products that reduce the risk of fire, this includesintumescent strips, glazing seals, fire protection for electrical and plumbing, as well as grilles, letterplates and other fire-proof building components, which are too often overlooked.
We’ve seen a range of construction styles, in homes, office buildings, and even hospitals. Floor coverings change, hinges fail, doors warp. And we know that when buildings age, they can change; things don’t always stay put.
Don’t fret about finding a door bottom seal that fits perfectly. Norseal offers a range of versatile products for safety and acoustic resistance which can work with a range of doors, frames and floor setups.
