Government Guidance

Firestop is pleased to share the government announcement regarding the success of using approved timber fire doors, adding our passive fire protection products ensures your safety is paramount.

The Government makes the following IMPORTANT statement:

“Our investigations into timber fire doors which began in October 2018 and has recently been concluded has found no issues with consistency of fire resistance performance of doors tested.”

25 different doors were tested for 30 minutes fire resistance and all passed well from both sides.

We could say “No surprise at all to us. Fit-for-purpose products is what ASDMA members provide.”  

To support that commitment, ASDMA has strongly supported the development and application of third-party product certification processes to provide independent assurance of consistency of fire door performances, to support and back-up manufacturers’ own product and process control systems.
