Uncertified fire door manufacture


Recommended Posts


I think I know the answer to this one, but I’m after another opinion.


As a joinery manufacturer, can I manufacture fire doors, even if I am not certified by certifire/qmark/etc?


Can i just follow the door blank manufacturers field of application specifications, ie. glazing system, intumescent strips, specified ironmongery, to the letter, and offer this as a nominal fire door?

No you can't make a fire door and offer it as 'Nominal or Notional'.  If you put a fire door on the market it must have evidence of fire resistance performance but that's not a problem because you can use the evidence provided by the door blank manufacturer.  Clearly, you have a duty to fabricate and install the door in strict accordance with the door blank manufacturer's technical manual and fire resistance assessment report.
