FIRE DOOR UPGRADING - easy when you know how

Door Protection can be expensive if you only have one or two doors to convert: it can be cheaper to buy factory built Fire Doors. However, nice, solid wood doors can be economically converted to 30 minutes fire resistance, as often requested by Building Control Officers.

For conversion of all doors made of solid wood, or solid wood with panels, please give us a call to discuss your options.

We will need to know the size and thickness of each door, and the thickness of any panels.

Give us a call on 01626 331351 for FREE help with your Fire Door Specification.

SAFE MINIMUM PANEL THICKNESS OF WOOD - to meet the 30 Minute Standard

Panels need to be at least 10mm thick.

When using our Varnishes or Paints for upgrading standard doors to 30 minute fire doors, they must be used as part of an overall program to include intumescent fire/smoke seal and lock, hinge and door closer Intumescent protection card, or as Specified by your Building Inspector.

As a general guide, uprating is likely to include the following;

1. Preparation of the doors to take intumescent fire/smoke seals and lock, hinge and door closer intumescent protection cards. We can offer surface mounting Intumescent Seal Strips, which are self adhesive and mount inside the door frame. This type of seal enables you to avoid removing the door to cut slots.

2. Three coats of Intumescent Fire Paint or Intumescent Varnish base, followed by two top coats of Flame Paint or Flame Varnish Finish (Eggshell, Satin or Matt).
