Hurst Launches New High-Performance fds Fire Door System

by | May 4, 2022 | Doors

A high-performance GRP fire door system is the latest offering from Hurst, one of Britain’s leaders in the field.

The result of significant investment and months of rigorous testing and expert consultation, the fds FD30 fire doorset system has been subjected to meticulous independent auditing, as have Hurst Doors’ own manufacturing capabilities.

All stages of the fds supply chain, up to and including the doorset manufacturer, are third-party certified to the BM Trada Q-Mark certification scheme.

The fds GRP composite fire door system has undergone in excess of 30 bi-directional tests featuring 60 individual door sets, undertaken in 3 independent accredited European countries’ test Laboratories and achieving an average of 45 minutes integrity (equating to 50% over run of the 30 minute pass criteria).

Tested to the more demanding EN1634-1:2014 European standard it satisfies our UK National Test standard method and delivers compliance to UK building Regulations for fire door safety.

Testing has been completed on both solid and glazed door options, with or without overhead fanlights. Testing has also recently been successfully completed on glazed side panels, with plans to introduce these imminently.

Hurst doors sales director Mark Atkinson comments: “Recent years have seen Britain address its attitudes to fire safety following the Grenfell tragedy.

“Today, the industry demands a GRP Composite fire door system that can consistently demonstrate compliance and dependable performance, and this can only be achieved through bi-directional testing and third-party certification.

“In addition, it is also crucial to have that transparency of the supply chain, in order to provide full traceability of the product.

“That’s exactly what the fds fire door system has been designed to provide, and we’re delighted with the results.”

Dave Walker, technical director of Distinction Doors, and the brainchild of the fds fire door system, commented “We’re delighted Hurst Doors are part of our trusted and accredited network to manufacture the fds system.

“We will be supporting them in educating the market about the benefits of the fds GRP Composite fire door system and working closely with them to introduce the product to local authorities, housing associations, house builders and developers.”

Hurst manufacture fds fire doors in 10 doors styles, with or without an overhead fanlight, and in a variety of colours.
