Fighting the Flames – Our Certified Doorsets
Fire doors have saved many thousands of lives and, as technology improves, this number happily continues to increase. Preventing the transfer of flames and toxic smoke from one area of a building to the next, these essential structures allow the building’s occupants crucial extra time to evacuate the premises. Bespoke Complete Services are proud to supply a comprehensive selection of fire doors and doorsets featuring state-of-the-art, market-leading technology to offer the very best level of protection.
With regards to any workplace, educational establishment, medical facility or building open to the public, fire doors are not an option; UK laws demand that a full fire safety plan is rigidly upheld in such buildings. This law includes things like smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and clear evacuation procedures as well as the inclusion of fire doors within the structure.
A fire door must meet all legal requirements before it is categorised as fit for its intended purpose. These requirements are set out in legal building regulations (‘approved documents’) and, taking into account a number of factors including thermal efficiency, acoustic resistance, accessibility and ventilation, are finally represented as a numerical fire-resisting level. Every fire door manufactured in the UK is required to undergo stringent tests to ensure it adheres to its stated resistance level; these tests include BS (British Standard) 476 and EN164.
Bespoke Complete Services supply a range of pre-assembled doorsets which, as they negate the need to order several separate parts to create frames and leaves, represent an incredibly cost-effective method of purchasing and installation. Our doorsets, which are covered with solid hardwood lippings, can be pre-assembled to any bespoke requirements and are available with a choice of two fire-rated cores to suit different applications.
Fire doors with a particleboard core are the most popular and have quickly grown to be a market leader in this sector. With independent certification from third parties, truly the best form of endorsement, the popularity of these cores is increased due to the fact that they are from sustainable sources and are manufactured in an environmentally-responsible manner.
With the added benefit of exceptional acoustic properties, fire doors with a solid particleboard core are particularly suited to heavy-duty applications such as in hospitals and schools. These doors offer unmatched durability and strength.
To ensure that any aesthetic can be created or matched, Bespoke Complete Services offer a wide selection of finishes to complete our superlative fire doors. Options include a choice of paint grade or laminate and an eclectic collection of 300 diverse veneers.
