Fire door certification helps to reduce the terrible human and economic cost of fire.

Tests are conducted by Approved Bodies specialising in third-party certification for fire resistance. In the UK, these include Elemenents BM Trada, IFC Certification, Warrington Certifire and Intertek.

During testing, positive pressure in the upper part of a furnace forces hot gases through gaps and joints in the assembly, such as those between the door leaf and frame. It’s these hot gases that invariably cause integrity failure. Only a very high standard of both design and specification, right down to the type of intumescent materials used, will pass the rigorous standards of this test.

Independent reports and third-party assessments confirm the integrity of Halspan’s fire door blanks and cores, seals and hardware in a variety of combinations, from 30 to 120 minutes rating.
