FD60 FIRE DOORS

COMMUNAL & INTERNAL FIRE DOORS
West Port Timber Internal and Communal fire door sets have been rigorously tested in specific full scale tests to British and European standards at UKAS accredited test houses.
Internal and Communal fire door sets have an important function to protect escape routes from the effects of fire so occupants can reach means of escape. They also enable the Fire & Rescue Service to carry out their operational duties within compartmented areas.
FIRE DOOR SCREENS
Glazed internal screens are increasingly being specified as a more sophisticated alternative to conventional brick or concrete wall constructions. These often expansive amalgams of wood, glass and doors have become particularly fashionable in Schools, Offices and other Public and Commercial buildings for applications such as corridors, lobby’s and partition walls.
TESTING & PRIMARY TEST EVIDENCE
At West Port we treat fire safety with the utmost seriousness, and our fire-rated products are among the most robust and reliable in the industry. The more primary test evidence a manufacturer can call upon, the wider the scope of results, and the greater the suitability of any individual solution. Having a large pool of test data to draw upon allows us to work with specifiers to offer custom fire door designs and configurations. West Port has a policy to only provide fire doors where primary test evidence is available.
NOT JUST COMPLIANT…
One of our valued customers came to us last year to talk about a very large ongoing fire door replacement program. They had concerns relating to the integrity of their internal walls and together we decided to test the entire system under strict test conditions. The FD30’s and wall exceeded the 30 minute requirements by 60%, lasting over 50 minutes on each occasion.
Because sometimes being compliant
just isn’t enough…
