record has equipped the Clinique des Grangettes with hermetically sealing doors with additional fire protection features. In addition to preventing airflow by fitting seals around the edge of the entire profile, the doors are provided with additional seals which swell in case of fire, thus preventing flames or smoke from spreading for at least 30 minutes. To enable the door to shut to prevent the spread of fire during a power failure, the door is fitted with a counterbalance. In the event of a power failure, the drive unit, attached by a magnet, is decoupled, the door leaf with its counterweight obeys gravity and uses its energy to close the door safely and securely.
