Architectural Fire-Rated Composite or Wood Door Frames - FRX Series

Warm Springs Composite Products patented FRX series of fire-rated composite or wood door frames allow architects and contractors to comply with the strictest of fire ratings without compromising the aesthetic appeal of natural wood finishes. The frame's unique design allows it to achieve required fire ratings with both neutral and positive pressure testing. WSCP frames meet U.S. standards for 20, 45, 60, and 90-minute fire ratings with certification provided by Intertek Testing Service, UBC 7-2 (1997)/UL 10(c) (1998). WSCP also holds certifications to meet British Standard 476, part 22, up to 120 minutes and BS EN 1634-1; 2014 up to 3 hours.

WSCP fire-rated frames are sold through a network of remanufacturing companies that have been certified by Intertek testing Systems and approved by Warm Springs Composites to use WSCP's rated constructions to properly machine and finish the frames. Fire-rated frames are available in an unlimited assortment of hardwood and softwood veneers, as well as paint grade and high pressure laminates to match the doors, wood casings, and trim throughout the interior space. The frames are available as single or double rabbet, for single or paired openings, as well as communicator frames. Moisture resistant substrate is available on request.

WSCP's frame design incorporates intumescent material concealed in the frame itself, thereby eliminating the need for intumescent in the doors. This results in significant cost savings without compromising the ability for the opening to achieve the necessary fire-rating. An available patented adjustable clip system allows for simple and quick installation, saving the contractor both time and money. The frames can be installed using traditional methods as well.

WSCP frames are certified under ITS approvals to achieve positive or neutral pressure 20, 45, 60, and 90-minute ratings in openings up to 96" x 96" with wall thickness of 4.5 inches or greater. Call WSCO for details on British Standards.

Tectonite image

Tectonite

Warm Springs Composite Products, a Native American-owned manufacturer based in Central Oregon, has for many years supplied its Tectonite-based fire-rated door components to door manufacturers for high-rise commercial and industrial construction projects the world over. A unique amalgam of diatomaceous earth, fiberglass, recycled wood fiber, and other ingredients, Tectonite was first developed and tested internally by Warm Springs Composite Products in 1993. The material has since been tested and certified by five different testing agencies to achieve fire ratings from 20 to 90 minutes to meet U.S. standards and up to 180 minutes to meet British standards. Widely known in the industry, Tectonite forms the basis of WSCP's line of value-added fire-rated door components.

Pretesting image

Pretesting

Our in-house test furnace was purchased from a certified testing lab. This means the results of our pre-test burns are very likely to simulate a true certified burn test. This capability allows us to test a wide range of configurations and sizes to ensure your uniquely designed products can meet required certification standards.

Ballistic Components

Warm Springs works closely with OEM customers to develop and supply superior ballistic components, dedicating engineering talent, research & development resources and manufacturing assets to meet critical demands in developing armor solutions to overcome ever-increasing ballistics threats. These efforts result in moving ideas from concept through design, into prototype and testing and on to production for items ranging from individual armor components to fully up-armored turnkey fighting platforms on marine combat vessels, land-based tactical vehicles and military aircraft.

WSCP works in tandem with a consortium of partner companies to serve as a single supply source for a diverse set of defense contractor customers. In this way Warm Springs is able to deliver armor products that utilize a mix of ballistics materials including composites, ceramics, metals and transparent glass. With HUBZone, SDB, Tribally Owned, Native American and 8(a) certifications, we give our customers a tremendous bidding advantage on armor related Department of Defense contracts. Among the competitive services we provide are assistance in meeting all subcontracting requirements, a 5% incentive bonus, quick contract approval, protection from award protests and many more.
Ballistic Details image

Ballistic Details

Warm Springs designs, tests, manufactures and delivers multi-material armor constructions, which range in scope from simple 4' x 8' flat composite spall liner panels to completely finished and ready-to-assemble components with holes and mounting fixtures in place. Strike face options include titanium, steel, aluminum and ceramics, mixed with composite fiber combinations such as e-glass, S2-glass, aramid, and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene. Binders include polyethylene, polypropylene and others, with the capability to develop and test materials for both ballistic and fragmentation projection against any caliber up to and including 30 caliber armor piercing rounds.

We are committed to the continuous development of more effective armor systems, using highly advanced material combinations, which are lighter and offer higher levels of threat protection.

Molded composite sheet products and machined components are available in dimensions up to 2" thick, 48" wide and 96" long. Industrial composite panels are in one of two basic panel designs: Solid Laminated Panels or Bi-Directional Skinned Panels.
Solid Laminated Panels image

Solid Laminated Panels

Our Solid Laminated Panels are produced using uni-directional or roving woven fibers throughout the entire panel. This style of construction produces a panel with uniform thickness, consistent appearance, unparalleled flatness and high durability in both structural and non-structural applications. The strength and stiffness of each surrounding layer of composite fiber closely follows the direction of fiber in adjacent layers. This adds structural integrity with a durable finish that is smooth, flat and adaptable to a wide variety of finish options, including sprayed coatings, as well as materials such as RTF, aluminum, decorative high pressure laminates and many others.
Bi-Directional Skinned Panels image

Bi-Directional Skinned Panels

Our Bi-Directional Skinned Panels have a composite fiber skin laminated in an orientation where the layers run in a 0° and 90° direction, resulting in an extremely light-weight component that is longitudinally stiffer for a given thickness with good load-bearing capabilities. These panels can be used in non-structural applications as well and they are frequently used as composites skins to sandwich an internal core of honeycomb or foam. Bi-Directional Skinned Panels can be surfaced with any number of sheet products including plain or exotic real wood veneers, as well as durable skins such as RTF, aluminum, decorative high pressure laminates and many others.

Specialty Wood Product image

Specialty Wood Product

WSCP's specialized wood products division makes a range of products including wood closure strips, specialty wood stiles and laminated wood posts

Wood closure strips, for use in installing corrugated roofing, are produced in a variety of profiles and delivered pre-packaged, labeled and bar-coded ready to stock on the shelves at home improvement stores and building materials retailers.

Specialty wood stiles are custom-designed to each customer's unique specifications and can be ordered in truck load quantities or as part of mixed loads. LTL shipping is also available for short runs.

Laminated wood posts make good use of scrap lumber that would otherwise be hogged and burned in boilers. Instead, WSCP end-, edge- and face-glues this scrap lumber together to form uniform posts in a variety of dimensions and lengths. Once the substrate is formed, the posts are finished by laminating a thin (usually 1/16" or thinner) piece of clear wood to each face. The result is a post with the appearance of solid clear lumber. Laminated wood posts are available in a wide range of finish species and virtually any dimension specified.

CUSTOM CAPABILITIES
In addition to standard specialized wood products, Warm Springs' product development engineers are at the ready to create wood products that are unique to customer specifications. Call 541-553-1143 to learn more about how WSCP can help you better serve your customers.
