A fire door is a critical component of a building’s passive fire protection system. It’s correct specification, build, fitting and maintenance is vitally important to ensure safety of people and property. 

Promat works closely with door manufacturers and modifiers, including:

  • Companies who fabricate fire doors from timber or composite door blanks, cut openings and install fire glass ensuring they meet required regulations.
  • Companies who take steel sections and fabricate into steel frames and doors, with fire glass observation panels. 

Project Considerations 

Some of the challenges faced by manufacturers and modifiers include:

  • Addressing shorter lead times for bespoke sizes of timber fire doors
  • Demand for double glazed units in external doors to meet more stringent regulations on energy loss through doors
  • Demand for larger glazed areas in doors with narrower frames
  • Higher fire ratings to 1 hour in timber and composite doors and 2 hours in steel doors
  • Demand for higher levels of security for entrance doors
