Fire Doors by Solar safety certification exceeds MHCLG requirements

6th September, 2021

Confidence in safety and certification are the most important elements of the Fire Doors by Solar range, manufactured by Solar Windows Ltd. The company has endeavoured to use its own primary test evidence and has the whole range third-party accredited, ensuring it exceeds Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) Smoke and Security compliancy requirements.

Our GRP FD30S composite doors has undertaken a series of stringent testing to EN163-1, furnace tested bi-directionally challenging its resilience, construction traceability through an audited system back to the individual components of the door. The door has been tested for smoke to EN1634-3 Sa and S200. The door is accredited to Secure by Design for Fire and Security.

The range also benefits from the “Inspect by Norseal” App, which ensures a strict manufacturing and maintenance record, which is easily identifiable on each doorset.
This information in turn is retained on a dashboard, providing a Golden Thread from manufacture through to installation and maintenance, in line with MHCLG guidelines.

The composite GRP FD30S doors are available in three traditional styles to include top light configuration and a range of different sizes, all bespoke made to order. Similarly, there are six colour options with more available on request and benefits from multipoint locking as standard, with an option for an electronic locking system if required.

John Lewis, Contracts Director of Solar Windows said:
“It is paramount that fire, smoke and security are of primary importance, none more so than for multi occupancy projects. We are extremely proud of this range, which has continued to exceed the required standards during testing, and hope will install a great deal of confidence for our customers and, in particular, the end user.”
