Bowater Doors Launch Fireshield Fire Doors

by | Jun 22, 2021 | Doors

Bowater Doors has introduced FireShield, which, according to the company, is ‘an industry-leading composite fire door with impressive and consistent test results’. Described by Bowater doors as a revolutionary fire and smoke protection solution and the result of innovative design combined with extensive testing and sealed with the BM TRADA Q Mark certification scheme to ensure consistent high quality.

This range of composite fire doors includes glazed and solid designs, all of which have been tested to BS EN 1634, the latest standard for fire resistance and smoke control.

Scott Francis, Technical Manager at Bowater Doors has been instrumental in the testing of this new range of fire doors, he comments: “BS EN 1634 is the latest standard and a far more demanding test in comparison to BS 476. This is particularly in reference to the requirement to expose both sides of the door to the fire combined with the increased level of pressure and heat in the furnace.  We made the decision to test our doors to the limits with regards to safety and security to ensure we are offering the best composite fire door on the market.”

For additional peace of mind, FireShield is supplied with a low maintenance fully finished frame that has been designed specifically for use with fire doors.

The testing of this door range was not limited to fire protection. Keeping residents safe remains a key driver for the development of the entire product range, say Bowater Doors. FireShield was tested to PAS 24 and also holds the Secured by Design accreditation. The function and usability of the range was also considered and as a consequence it features an AV2 slam shut lock to ensure that when the door was closed it is secure and ready to perform in the event of a fire.
