Fire Door Update

In November 2018, we resumed production and sale of our composite, timber core, FD30 fire doors based on full test reports from Cambridge Fire Research, an independent, UKAS-accredited test facility, which demonstrated that our opaque and glazed composite fire doors passed bi-directional testing with results that significantly exceeded the thirty-minute rating. That testing in both directions complemented our existing Certifire certification based on test evidence and assessment of these products and our processes

Just before Christmas, the Ministry for Housing, Communities, and Local Government made amendments to Approved Document B in relation to the use of assessment in lieu of tests for products and materials which can affect fire spread. Certifire has been in discussion with the Ministry about the application of these amendments to fire doors

On 4 February 2019, Certifire issued advice to all members of their certification scheme, including DSI, that their certification will only support the manufacture of composite fire doors if the designs are exactly the same as the supporting test evidence. That means that no variations to the specification of the door which was tested will be included in the certification. That applies to size, shape, design, specification, and hardware and effectively prevents the use of assessments which have historically been widely used in the certification process for the industry

While we have questions as to the rationale for the Ministry’s actions and Certifire’s response given that our doors contain timber cores, as a precaution, we have today temporarily withdrawn all of our composite fire doors from sale until we can obtain the test evidence necessary to comply with Certifire's guidance. We have confidence in our products and will provide further updates as we obtain additional information

We now offer external fire doors. We know that fire safety is important to everyone, and that’s why we’ve expanded our range of fire doors to offer robust solutions for any situation, whether that is internal or external application

All Door-Stop Fire Doors have been approved by CERTIFIRE - an independent third party certification scheme that assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of fire protection products. Certifie is recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide, it is an internationally respected mark of fire safety and one of the most authoritative in the industry. Door-Stop believes you shouldn’t buy it if you cannot prove its performance

  • Independent Third Party Certification proves the performance of every fire door we install

With this 3rd party certification, a Door-Stop Fire Door, correctly installed, provides a powerful demonstration that due diligences have been served

Q. Why are Fire Doors becoming increasingly expensive and difficult to get hold of?

A. With the increasing spotlight on fire safety (and rightly so) regulators are tightening and more thoroughly checking doors sold as Fire Doors really do meet with their requirements. Our doors are independently third party certified to meet or exceed all required specifications for FD30 doors and are available on a supply only or supply and install service

Q. Have your Fire Doors been affected by the recent re-tests and reports on Fire Door Safety in the UK?

A. Our FD30 composite fire doors have been tested by a UKAS accredited test facility, and approved by CERTIFIRE, an independent third party certification scheme. As is commonplace for doors of this type, that process involved fire resistance testing in one direction only
