The global environmental agenda doesn’t get more topical than sustainability and preservation of natural resources. When it comes to wood, the growing demand for FSC-certified products is a clear indication that businesses and consumers prefer products from well-managed forests, which is why Huet’s new Club Comfort range of acoustic-rated doorsets now includes FSC-certified timber frames.
Huet’s market-leading Euroflam range of EI30, EI30 XXL and EI60 fire-rated doorsets now offers architects, designers and specifiers an even greater choice of finishes and features. Available with 30-minute and 60-minute ratings for both integrity and insulation, the new value-engineered Euroflam doorsets draw on Huet’s proven technical capability while offering exceptional affordability for cost-conscious projects.
The team tasked with refurbishing Abidjan’s landmark Sofitel Hôtel Ivoire, lead by architect Pierre Fakhoury have selected Huet to supply acoustic and fire-rated doorsets for all guest rooms. Renovation of the 25 story hotel started late in 2011, with work on the 168 bedrooms, 40 suites, and 124m2 top floor Presidential Suite due to start shortly.
Worried about noise levels in your hotel? You should be. It wasn’t so long ago that Premier Inn, one of the UK’s fastest-growing hotel chains, revealed that “noise from other guests” was the most common reason for giving customer refunds, and now there’s solid research to back up that statistic – a study by the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration confirms that online guest satisfaction has a direct impact on the financial performance of hotels.
Huet have always been known in the UK and internationally for high-performance acoustic-rated doorset solutions. Now available with a revised specification is their Club Comfort doorset range, offering value engineering and solid acoustic performance.
