Oversized fire doors

I have a project that I am specifying bespoke doors that are 2.4m high. The doors need to be FD30.

I have been told that the doors will need to be tested to make sure they comply with BS. Who does the testing if they are a bespoke door design?

Three fire doors sets are tested to destruction and if they resist the passage of fire for the specified time then the manufacturing specifications of those doors are considered to be fire doors of that time it lasted. It is very costly and would not be suitable for you problem. You need to have the bespoke doors made to a specification that has passed 30 minute fire resistance, it will not be easy.

Check out Safelincs I think they make bespoke doors.
