FIRE, ACOUSTIC, SECURITY, PVC AND LEAD LINED, DOORS & DOORSETS The 2016 acquisition of the former Leaderflush Shapland factory at Langley Mill, Nottingham, firmly established UK Fire Doors as the market leader in the design and manufacture of bespoke performance fire doors and doorsets. Building on their success, UK Fire Doors recently rebranded and now trade under the simplified brand of ‘Firedoors’. Specialising in high quality bespoke doors and doorsets, Firedoors deliver at all levels, from small commercial projects to high end luxury homes, hotels, healthcare facilities, student accommodation and educational establishments. PERFORMANCE DOORSETS QUALITY AS STANDARD MANUFACTURED IN THE UK PERFORMANCE DOORSETS QUALITY AS STANDARD MANUFACTURED IN THE UK Tim Askew - Managing Director enables Firedoors to lead the market into a new era of reliably sourced, environmentally friendly, fully certified lifesaving products.

This is why we remain the number one choice for fire, acoustic, security and durability performance doors and doorsets. In addition to this we also offer paint grade, fully painted, veneered, laminated and plastic clad finish options.” The ability to do exclusive in-house testing has proved a massive advantage to the company, “This is invaluable to us” stated Wayne. “It allows us to undertake enhanced testing on all our new door and door set prototypes before we submit to third party certifiers for final approval and certification. It’s critical in our development process and we are now producing fire doors well in excess of their FD ratings, providing added peace of mind to any potential customer.” Firedoors have an extensive workforce of experienced craftsmen that are adept at selecting veneer finishes and stitching beautiful intricate inlays. They can produce precision surface detailing, staining and high-relief surface mouldings which all emphasise the sheer quality and beauty of their bespoke performance doors. Operating from sites in North Wales, Barnstaple and Nottingham, Firedoors currently boast the largest capacity of all the UK manufacturers, enabling consistent and reliable distribution throughout the United Kingdom. With the implementation of the rebrand completed, the company are now poised to commence work on their new state of the art production facility on the former Langley Mill site, expanding their overall volume to 200,000 sq.ft. Development Director Wayne Humphreys commented; “Our extensive production and in-house testing facility Groundbreaking Innovation… 2018 will see Firedoors launch their much anticipated E0 rated fire door. This groundbreaking new product will be available under the ‘Endurodoor’ brand and will be the first ever fire door to be manufactured utilising this method of construction. This product will clearly enhance projects under the BREEAM scheme. Zero added formaldehyde is the next big change within the door industry and firmly places Firedoors at the forefront of environmentally friendly door manufacture. E0 focuses on the lifetime usage of a product and the effects exposure

to formaldehyde can have on the internal air quality of a building. With the potential health issues surrounding exposure to formaldehyde, Firedoors are anticipating a wide interest in this innovative new product as it offers significant benefits to any project. Endurodoor will be available in two variants, an E1 compliant fire rated door or the enviable E0 rated. Grand designs require unique solutions… When Oxford surveyor Henry Chopping decided to build his dream home he and his team turned to Firedoors for their expertise in the design and supply of internal doors and doorsets. The unique project, which featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs, demanded beautifully created doors that blended perfectly with the unrivalled architecture. The house, which was based on a decagon - a polygon with 10 sides- was a huge architectural achievement and was inspired by the Radcliffe Observatory at Green College Oxford. “We were so proud to have been associated with this project,” said Managing Director Tim Askew, “it’s just one of the many bespoke schemes we have been commissioned to work on.” The Decagon House - Oxford, Grand Designs Other bespoke projects Firedoors have been commissioned for include; The famous Hard Day’s Night Hotel, Liverpool - The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liverpool and the City Tower in Manchester.
