Front Entrance Doors - Fan Light Issue


Recommended Posts

After any advice from the forum 🤞 We have many external front entrance FD30 doors to replace that have have services passing through the existing glazed fan lights.

The client will not relocate any services and our door supplier only has testing under UKCA for a full width fan light section. There is no fire consultant or building control involved so at a loss at the moment.

I am struggling to find a solution that would allow us to create a tested partition detail and certify the door set alongside. I have spoken with Promat but they need steel section installing to separate from the door set which is a huge task and additonal cost to the project.

Could anyone point me in the right direction or has experience of this from previous projects?

Thanks in advance

The door supplier is correct that its very unlikely that any fire door set will have evidence of fire resistance performance with fire-stopped services passing through any part of it.  On the flip side there are many fire-stopping products with certification for fire resistance performance when used with cables and pipes passing through walls. Consult a fire-stopping specialist for advice.
