Fire door services
Most of my experience with fire doors has been in hospitals and offices in London, York and Nottingham and Birmingham. I occasionally get asked to service fire doors or install replacement fire doors after they have been surveyed by the person in charge of Health and Safety of a particular building or their Fire Officer.

Fire doors may require upgrades to the intumescent strip if legal guidelines change and periodic servicing to maintain the integrity of fire strip brushes or rubber fins, adjusting/ replacing door closers and installing missing signage are required operational requirements.

Fire door and fire wall , The Stephenson Centre, Ipswich

I was asked to install a firedoor and fire wall to a second floor under the instruction af an architect. A difficulty was the the exposed roof timbers were not vertical and the floor was not level. 3 mm gaps were acheived all round the door using appropriate components. 15mm Fireline plasterboard applied to 100mm x 47mm Ridgeon studs.  The customer was to plaster and decorate the wall faces.

I was asked to change a non fire rated doorset to one that was. The supplier was Just Value Doors offering a Certifire certificate 5705. I used Utile strips 660 kg/m3 to set up intumescent packers from The Stormflame Group and fixed the frame with 152mm x 7.5 Torx fixings. The data required a minimum of 17 fixings I used 21. Blue60 foam was used to seal the unit and then trimmed on the external side.

The doors were fitted with cetrtified components incliding DIN locks with an intumescent wrap including the forend of the lock. 4 cylinders with thunbturns had individual keys with a master to all 4. The other two doors had pull handles and push plates.

Fire door upgrade and servicing for WinMil Supported Housing, Ipswich.

Carpentryworks Ipswich offers fire door maintenance, servicing, upgrades and renewals as part of our carpentry portfolio. We were asked to install 15mm intumescent strips to the doors on an electrical cupboard by WinMil. The pair of doors were also adjusted so that brush seal touched adjacent surfaces.
