Fire Door Performance & Compliance

A fire door is a carefully engineered safety product and a crucial part of the passive fire protection of every commercial, public and multiple occupancy building. It is designed to save lives and property by delaying the spread of fire.

Before a fire door can be sold in the market it must be tested to prove that it performs and complies with strict safety and building regulations.

Third Party Certification

Under the current Building Regulations, all new flat entrance doors must be furnace tested to both sides and be to FD30s standard. This means the fire door must provide fire resistance of no less than 30 minutes and be resistant to the passage of smoke at room temperature conditions. In addition, the fire door must meet the requirements of Secured By Design.

The Neuma fds FD30 GRP composite fire door system is certificated by the BM Trada Q mark Scheme as an FD30s doorset and holds triple certification for fire, smoke and security, having been tested to EN 1634-1 2014 and PAS 24:2022.
