Leading the way for higher Fire Door safety standards

Having been involved for many years in fire rated products, gaining invaluable knowledge and insight into the Composite Fire Door industry, Astraseal could see the requirement for a comprehensive Fire Safety Door package. A start to finish solution backed up by extensive testing to the most onerous standards and certified by industry leading experts.

The package needed to provide a solution from enquiry through survey, design, manufacture and installation and go on to include an opportunity for a maintenance contract. All stages of the process would need to be subject to testing, training programmes and certification to give clients the assurance that every door was backed up with unequivocal evidence proving its performance.

The package also needed to provide this one stop shop solution at a price that could not only compete within the composite Fire Door market but also offer clients huge savings over Fire Doors of other materials, and all of this needed to be available with shorter lead times than the market standards.


Ensuring our doors meet a consistent quality

The Q Mark Certification Scheme by BM Trada provides independent assurance that Astraseal Fire Doors are manufactured to a consistent quality.

Whilst a successful stand alone Fire Door test demonstrates that a door meets the legally acceptable minimum standard, the BM Trada “Q” Mark third party scheme provides proof that our Fire Safety Door range resists the passage of fire, through a programme of research and development backed up by an extensive catalogue of certified test evidence.

As a Q Mark certified manufacturer we are subject to annual audits covering both production and processes as well as regular pre-sampled live testing verified by the industry leading third party certification body, BM Trada.

Investing in an extensive testing programme

Door icon

Astraseal embarked on an extensive testing programme backed by significant investment to ensure their future fire door sets would be at the very forefront, complying not only to the standards of the time but also future proofing them by testing them all to the more onerous European standard, BS EN1634-1.

Fire icon

Each test subjects two complete fire door sets to the intense and rapid heat build up of a live fire scenario, with one door set installed to open towards the furnace and the other to open away from the furnace, resulting in a true bi-directionally tested fire safety door.

Secure icon

Following a vast amount of tests, 100% passed the required timings, with some exceeding the required times by up to 25 minutes. Bi-directional testing has been successfully completed to BS EN1634-1. Solid and glazed FD30 fire doors have also been tested with a fixed glazed fanlight over the top of the door frame.

Safe. Reliable. Quality Assured.
