A Door to Sustainability


23 August 2022

When leading Scandinavian architects LINK needed more than 500 fire and sound doors for a ground-breaking plus house project, they turned to Norway’s largest door manufacturer.


Over the past four decades, Nordic Door has developed into becoming a holistic producer of doors for large scale building projects. Their doors are recognizable for their combination of in-built quality and sensible Scandinavian design.

As so-called plus buildings go, the municipally owned Hurum bo- og omsorgssenter is quite unique. For the very first time in Norway and possibly the world, plus house technology has been used in the construction of a residential care facility.


In such a green and innovative building project, every part needs to be sustainable. LINK Arkitektur knew this when they went looking for a supplier to deliver 540 fire and sound proof doors to the impressive 11,500 square metre building mass.

Nordic Door has specialized in this type of large-scale project, having delivered fire and sound doors to thousands of schools, hospitals, hotels, offices and health care buildings. The Lyngdal based manufacturer was tasked with supplying certified fire and sound doors for the project.


Among the products chosen for the plus house project was the EI60/Rw 38dB model. This robust, fire-, smoke- and noise resistant door will also be displayed at this year’s Nordic Door stand at Architects@Work in Lillestrøm on November 23 and 24.


EI60/Rw 38dB Classic Wenge doors could provide a touch of class to any public restroom. 


With its tree-based construction and high-quality laminated surfaces, this innovative model offers both sound and fire protection as well as sustainability. The door is certified by PEFC, a non-profit program for the endorsement of sustainable forestry. Water-based paint is used for coating.


The impressive Euro 60 Million Hurum bo- og omsorgssenter was completed in late 2021, and is owned and operated by Asker municipality.
