ALUFLAM (Denmark) makes fireproof structures of different types such as single & double doors, sliding doors, glass walls and roofs or domes, all classified as B15, A0, A30 or A60. The company claims their products offer a weight reduction of approx. 25% on doors and glass walls throughout the ship. ALUFLAM is using its extensive experience in providing fireproof structures for the general building industry in order to meet the stringent requirements of the shipbuilding industry. The company has been serving the marine market for more than two years and supplied its products for 20 new ships.
ALUFLAM products are specifically suited for passenger ships in public spaces providing an aesthetic look, required functionality and safety. These fireproof doors may eliminate a need for steel doors typically required in front of the standard glass doors. Thus substantial savings can be achieved, as the associated steel bulkheads may no longer be required. The company has just finalised installation of new glass and fireproof structures on a new cruise ship "Pearl of Scandinavian".
