Fire Test Evidence

NFS are certificated to fabricate and manufacture Fire Doors and Doorsets that meet regulatory requirements to fire test evidence (BS476:1987 Part 22) and EN 63-1. This verifies that our products conform to all fire building regulations.

Our FD30 burn tests are carried out at across a range of UKAS laboratories to ensure we meet exacting standards of testing. Our tested configuration is far more onerous than tested by our competitors and pushes the envelope to offer larger glazed and solid options.

Smoke Test Evidence

Our doors undergo independent UKAS primary smoke testing to EN1634-3 with Warringtinfire. This ensures full compliance with both fire and smoke certification. Smoke leakage performance in many cases is an essential part in the design of buildings and will influence how a fire strategy may be developed. A fire door that halts the spread of flame yet allows the passage of smoke may be considered inappropriate in many  circumstances.

The test is conducted using a specially designed smoke leakage chamber, housing a partition to install the sample.
