Fire and Smoke Ratings

Fire Rating Overview

Fire door performance is one of the most important aspects of any doorset. There is a legal requirement for manufacturers of fire doors to provide proof of the ability of their products to resist the passage of fire through the provision of test evidence. To this end, SDS are part of the BM Trada ’Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacture Scheme’, and have carried out multiple fire test under this scheme to ensure that our fire doors meet all legal requirements. We also have a commitment to carrying out ongoing fire tests in the future—not only to ensure ongoing compliance, but also to further expand the parameters of our fire certification portfolio.

About BM Trada

BM Trada is widely accepted as a leading provider of third-party fire certification, and provides independent verification of our manufacturing quality and compliance, against the original specification of our fire test specimens. Under the BM Trada Q-Mark scheme, SDS are subject to the independent and rigorous auditing by BM Trada, providing clients and specifiers alike, the peace of mind that SDS meets and exceeds the legal obligations of a fire door manufacturer.

A variety of Fire Only, or Fire & Smoke intumescent seals are available. As standard, Intumescent Brush strips are fitted to all doors, and plain intumescent strips are used where two Brush strips would conflict – i.e. on the meeting stiles of a pair of doors. Other intumescent strip options are available on request. All strips are supplied in either Black or White, as standard, although other colour options are available on specific request.
