Construction Specifications for fire rated door sets
What Specifications are available for constructing fire rated doorsets?
This is a tricky one, there are no publicly available standards for manufacturing fire rated doorsets in anything other than a recognised and accredited location but as a guide a fire rated doorset should:
- be manufactured in line with a specification or design shown by test to be capable of meeting that performance; or
- Assessed from evidence in controlled tests against appropriate standards in order to be shown as meeting that performance.
- Tests have to be carried out at a recognised and acredited location but (and this is the issue) seperately accredited fire door frames and fire doors can be put together as a fire door set, the issue is that you can only supply test ecrtificates to the project manager for each product and not the finished article.
