A range of Installation, Repair & Maintenance Services
A fire door is a vital safety device engineered to save lives and property. The correct specification, supply, fitting and maintenance are critical and the responsibility of each and every person in the process. It’s only when a fire breaks out that the consequences of poorly manufactured or fitted fire doors are known.
What is a Fire Door
A door must have fire test evidence to prove that it is a fire door. This evidence is usually in the form of a certificate of performance. A fire door must be tested by an independent test organisation in accordance to British or European Standards. Installed and maintained correctly, it WILL perform in the event of a fire.
The best way to prove to your customer that you have supplied a fire door is by a current fire certificate, proving that testing is relevant to the supplied product and has been done by an independent accredited third party.
