Where does the time go?
We have been so busy here at Slammer that I didn't even notice it was August already. Winter is almost over and we finally have time to spend talking to our customers and the community about the hazards and the prevention of those hazards around doors.
In the past few months, we have finally passed testing on New Zealand fire doors for both their 30 minute and 60 minute doors. The testing took forever as the testing authority decided to refurbish their ovens last year and put all testing on hold until that work was completed.
Since that testing went so swimmingly, we are now looking at testing in two more fire doors that are commonly used through out New Zealand and Australia.
At the same time, we are testing for use in Aluminium doors. So far, the results look good. Final results should be ready by the end of the month. The testing requirements are for 100,000 closes. That takes time. Just try counting to 100,000; a task best done while watching water boil.
Have a safe and happy winter.
