IKEA includes Won-Door FireGuard door Miami store
The fire door would mostly go unnoticed by the customers coming in and stepping into the upper floor but in case of a fire or similar emergency, the Won-Door FireGuard door could make a life-saving difference.
The general contractor, Balfour Beatty Construction, put in the 22' x 12' door between the garage and the public retail space to provide the required fire rating.
The FireGuard fire door will provide 180 minutes of protection against smoke inhalation and heat damage if there is a fire or emergency situation.
Gustavo Castro, a project engineer for Balfour Beatty, said the door is one of a kind for the IKEA stores.
Eric Eiffert, district manager for the Florida area, said GreenbergFarrow of New York is the architect on record for the project.
On the average, IKEA stores offer between 350,000-450,000 square feet of retail space featuring home furnishings for a global market.
