Fire safety is a legal requirement for all commercial properties, whether industrial environments, local authority buildings, leisure, hospitality, healthcare, education or retail offices.
Our fire rated steel doors provide high levels of safety and reassurance for both external and internal use. Their main purpose is ultimately to save lives. They achieve this by slowing the spread of a fire, buying the critical time needed to effectively evacuate premises.
Whereas timber fire rated doors usually only come under two categories, FD30 and FD60, offering 30 minutes and one hour of fire protection respectively, our bespoke steel Defender Fireshield is proven to stand up to four hours of 1100°C heat. That's the Metador standard.
The Defender Fireshield is tested to BS EN 1634, ensuring the doorset provides both stability and integrity while holding back flame spread. It is also CE marked, providing confidence that our doorset meets the relevant European safety and environmental requirements.The Defender Fireshield Plus is our external doorset, that meets the latest requirements for external fire rated doorsets to be CE Marked to EN 16034 in conjunction with BS EN 14351-1.
