Cotswold Manufacturing is a member of the BWF Certifire Scheme.
90% of all fire doors sold in the UK are registered under this scheme.
A fire doorset comprises a number of component parts. The door, frame, hinges, ironmongery, vision panels and the seals must all be selected to ensure the door design is properly fire resistant and all the components must work in combination.
A well designed timber fire doorset will act as an effective fire barrier and delay the spread of fire and smoke.
The performance of timber fire doorsets is judged by subjecting them to the standard test procedure specified in BS476: Part 22: 1987 or BS EN 1634-1: 2000. Tests are made on complete door assemblies, the fire door and frame having all the necessary hardware. Intumescent seals are applied to the frame so that a rise in temperature will cause the material to swell and seal the gaps.
Cotswold Manufacturing are a Designated CERTIFIRE Approved Door Manufacturer including Glazed Apertures and door frames, and are certified to produce fire doorsets from FD30 (30 minutes) – FD60 (1 hour).
Many time and quality conscious benefits have been introduced to the building trade with the introduction of the pre-assembled Fire doorset concept. It is the most cost efficient and cost effective method for on-site door and frame installation. The pre-assembled doorsets are ideal for all types of projects such as schools and colleges, apartments, office accommodation, hotels and student accommodation.
All Firedoors will have the Certifire label affixed; this gives everyone involved with fire door installations, the assurance needed.
