 FD30S Global Composite Fire Doors 

The new standard for fire rated doors
 
 

Important Fire Door Update From Door Stop International

 
In November 2018, we resumed production and sale of our composite, timber core, FD30 fire doors based on full test reports from Cambridge Fire Research, an independent, UKAS-accredited test facility, which demonstrated that our opaque and glazed composite fire doors passed bi-directional testing with results that significantly exceeded the thirty minute rating. That testing in both directions complemented our existing Certifire certification based on test evidence and assessment of these products and our processes.
Just before Christmas, the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government made amendments to Approved Document B in relation to the use of assessment in lieu of tests for products and materials which can affect fire spread. Certifire has been in discussion with the Ministry about the application of these amendments to fire doors.
On 4 February 2019, Certifire issued advice to all members of their certification scheme, including DSI, that their certification will only support the manufacture of composite fire doors if the designs are exactly the same as the supporting test evidence. That means that no variations to the specification of the door which was tested will be included in the certification. That applies to size, shape, design, specification and hardware and effectively prevents the use of assessments which have historically been widely used in the certification process for the industry.
While we have questions as to rationale for the Ministry’s actions and Certifire’s response given that our doors contain timber cores, as a precaution, we have today temporarily withdrawn all of our composite fire doors from sale until we can obtain the test evidence necessary to comply with Certifire’s guidance. We have confidence in our products and will provide further updates as we obtain additional information.

No more ugly georgian wire glass

We know that most fire door suppliers expect homeowners to put up with ugly Georgian wire-cast glass, but at Global we want your entrance door to make the right impression. We use 7mm Pyrodur fire resistant glass as standard – available in clear or obscure and 100% wire free!

Choosing your glass

We offer a choice of clear or obscure Stippolyte glazing, the choice is completely dependant on your requirements. Both designs transmit a great amount of natural light, however if privacy is required then Stippolyte is the best choice which offers a level 4 obscurity rating.

Fantastic Door and service

Was a bit worried about buying a door online without seeing it first but just didn’t see any I liked in shop. Went ahead and have to say I am very impressed with the door. It is absolutely solid and completely draft proof. I went for the Yale Key free system and this is also great. Very pleased with this door and everyone comments on how nice it is. Door fitters were friendly and tidy. Great overall.
