Fire Door Ratings
The fire door rating of timber fire doors is judged by subjecting them to the standard test procedure specified in BS 476 : Part 22: 1987 or BS EN 1634-1: 2000. All fire doors need to be tested on complete door assemblies, with the door and frame with all the necessary hardware.
Fire doors are normally rated as ½ hour or 1 hour fire doors dependant on specification. Fire doors need to include intumescent strips to be effective in preventing the spread of smoke and heat.
A one hour fire resisting door will normally prevent hot gases from passing for 45 minutes, with collapse after one hour.
Fire Doors serve two purposes, to prevent the spread of fire and to provide a means of escape. Every fire door is therefore required to act as a barrier to the passage of smoke and fire to varying degrees dependent upon its location in a building and the fire hazard associated with the building.
Our standard Veneered fire doors are designed to meet the most rigorous of fire specifications and provide a high quality performance. We manufacture a range of fully certificated fire doors which can withstand the fiercest onslaught.
Our standard fire doors include a 60 min fire rating, however higher rated fire doors can be supplied providing up to 120 minutes to give exceptional levels of performance. A range of veneered finishes and options is available on all fire doors and screens to ensure they look as good as they perform.
We offer specialist bespoke acoustic panelling and acoustic door sets to achieve up to 40dB rating in a range of veneers, laminates or paint grade for on-site painting.
