Promat UK: "For fire resistant glazing to deliver on its promise, it has to be tested as a complete system. All the elements and components are chosen to work together to achieve the level of fire resistance required.

The Cambridge Dictionary suggests that suite is a noun often used in relation to 'a set of furniture for one room, of matching design and colour.' So, for the door furniture sector it would seem that the term 'suited' would be appropriate only when all components share similarities in both finish and shape.…»
