Endurance Doors is backing Fire Door Safety Week, which will be held during the week commencing 25 September.
Fire Door Safety Week is promoted by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) at www.firedoorsafetyweek.co.uk and Endurance Doors says it is ‘eager to play its part’ with its FD30S-rated, ‘proven, solid and secure’ composite door. As well as a best practice guide on the website, there’s also an initiative to stop fire doors being wedged-open, with people encouraged to share their images using the hashtag #ClickItKickIt www.bwfcertifire.org.uk/kickit.
Thanks to the Rehau specification of the Rauferno Fire Door, Endurance Doors says it has been able to lead the solid core composite market with this FD30S performance standard, that is also said to offer reduced sound reduction to 34db. The range includes standard doors, along with additional top and side light options. With opportunities for sales of internal garage doors that necessitate additional security, it’s also a product USP that’s an important part of its portfolio.
According to Endurance, internal garage doors are a part of the composite door market that’s ‘relatively untapped’ but, the company says, the reported burglary of Jamie Oliver’s house through the garage door, back in October 2015, demonstrates the importance of a high security, internal garage door.
Stephen Nadin, managing director at Endurance, said: “We’ve been quietly promoting our fire doors for a number of years and with the considerable added security they offer, they make for a perfect internal garage door. With all the designs and colours now on our online door designer, it’s an unrealised segment that we hope to penetrate further.”
