In the 1990s, Halspan revolutionised the world of timber door manufacture with its door blanks made from a unique 3-layer particle board.
Halspan was also the first company to offer a full range of testing. We didn't just test one door blank to see whether it could be used as a fire door, we tested every conceivable door configuration and mode. And continue to test them to British Standards (BS), European Standards (EN) and North American Standards (UL), providing customers with complete peace of mind.
Adapting to the changing demands for buildings and the environment, we've continued to explore and develop new products so that today Halspan is one of the world's leading suppliers of quality door components – from fully-certified fire door blanks and cores to intumescent seals, hardware, steel door frames and more – all from sustainably-managed sources.
Our vision is to be the world's leading supplier of trusted, high-performance building products, specialising in fire, acoustic and service life excellence.
Halspan's mission is to be the world's leading supplier of innovative, quality, sustainably-sourced building product solutions, specialising in fire, acoustic and service life performance.
