Fire doors are a crucial element of a building’s passive fire protection safety system, slowing down the spread of fire and smoke.
Fire doors can be used to contain fire, protect the remainder of the building, its occupants and contents, and provide a protected route of escape.
Fire doors should be installed, maintained and tested by trained and accredited installers. Each of our Passive Fire Installers are certified to inspect, upgrade and replace both timber and steel fire door sets.
We offer door services for new & existing doors as well as doors for listed buildings:
☑ Inspect doors and provide reports with recommended actions
☑ Upgrading and repair fire doors
☑ Supply and install new doors and door sets
☑ Provide ongoing maintenance programmes

In a building fire, structural steel loses strength as the temperature increases. Few things are more fundamental to the fire safety of steel framed buildings than the fire protection of the structural skeleton as failure can lead to premature collapse
In order to maintain the structural integrity of the steel frame, several fireproofing measurements are taken:
We offer intumescent coating and boarding services:
Intumescent coatings are paint like materials which are inert at low temperatures but which provide insulation as a result of a complex chemical reaction at temperatures typically of about 200-250°C. At these temperatures the properties of steel will not be affected. As a result of this reaction they swell and provide an expanded layer of low conductivity char.
Boards are widely used for structural fire protection in the UK. They are used both where the protection system is in full view and where it is hidden. They offer the specifier a clean, boxed appearance and have the additional advantages that application is a dry trade and may not have significant impacts on other activities. Also, boards are factory manufactured and thicknesses can be guaranteed. Furthermore, boards can be applied on unpainted steelwork.
