Specifying fire doors can be a complex part of any construction project. As a vital preventative measure, it is paramount that the doors comply with legal safety standards, in order to protect lives and property. The best way to ensure that the doors meet the critical standards you require, is to specify that both the manufacturer and installer have independent, third-party certification.
Third-party certification means that the manufacturer/installer has undergone a rigorous audit and testing process conducted by an impartial specialist body. This involves having documented product specifications, installation instructions and controlled factory production processes. It has now become a mandatory requirement for Secured By Design, and is also preferable for demonstrating fire door performance under Approved Document B of the Building Regulations.
By specifying third-party certified fire door manufacturing and installation, you can be confident in the quality of the door’s performance and have peace of mind that you’re making a commercially sound investment.
