Who do I use to replace my fire door?

Correct installation of the fire door is important in order to make sure the door is fit for purpose.

A test certificate for all replacement doors should be provided to you by the contractor supplying/fitting the door, confirming that it meets the required fire safety standard. Alternatively fire doors can be marked in accordance with an accredited fire door installation scheme.

There are various accredited schemes, where you can view their register and find a suitably qualified trades person.

Third party certification is a helpful guide but should not be relied upon.

Composite fire doors on the market should all have furnace test certificates for both sides of the door.
