Fire Doors – A Lifesaving Device

Posted by Stephen Waddicor on 4 December 2013

Since the first fire-resisting doors were invented, they have saved thousands of lives. By preventing or delaying the spread of fire and smoke from one area to another, fire doors provide vital extra time during which the building’s occupants can be safely evacuated. Bespoke Complete Services are proud suppliers of a comprehensive range of fire doors, which have been extensively tested to ensure they easily meet all health, safety and quality specifications.

The law requires that all workplaces and public buildings in the UK must be fitted with appropriate fire safety measures, part of which includes fire doors. Legal building regulations, known as ‘approved documents’, designate a numerical fire-resistance level to each building, making sure that different factors such as sound, thermal efficiency, ventilation and accessibility are taken into account. All fire-resisting doorsets in the UK must undergo an official test (either BS 476 or BS/EN 1634) before they are deemed fit for purpose.

Our range of fire doorsets, which are ready-assembled, have benefited thousands of construction projects. The traditional concept of ordering the many separate parts required to create door leaves and built-in frames has been made redundant with pre-assembled fire doorsets which, fabricated to exact specifications, represent the most cost-efficient method of on-site frame and door installation. Bespoke Complete Services fire doorsets have been used in a diverse array of projects from schools and offices to apartments and hotels.

Our fire doors consist of a fire-rated core manufactured from either particleboard or solid timber which is covered with solid matching hardwood lippings. To complete the door, an extensive range of face finishes is available which includes laminate, paint grade and a choice of over 300 veneers. A market-leader in the field, particleboard-core fire doors have received the highest possible form of endorsement in the form of independent third-party certification. The reputation of these doors is further enhanced by their highly-sustainable and environmentally-friendly nature.

Designed for strength and durability, solid timber core fire doors are found in hospitals, colleges, hotels and airports around the world. When these fire doors are used in conjunction with the appropriate frames and sealing, they offer remarkable acoustic properties.
