The draft Fire Safety Bill proposes to amend the Fire Safety Order 2005 to clarify the role of the responsible person or duty holder for multi-occupancy residential buildings.
If approved, the changes will make it clear that building owners and landlords must manage and reduce the risk of fire in relation to entrance doors for individual flats that open into common areas.
The new Door-Stop Fire and Security Dual-Certificated Doorset is among the first to have achieved dual certification for both security and fire through Warringtonfire’s Certifire and Certisecure schemes.
What building owners and landlords need to know:
Third party fire testing: furnace tested from both directions to provide additional assurances to building owners and occupants
Enhanced security: certified under Certisecure, a scheme recognised by Secured by Design
Functional for all building users: designed to comply with the requirements outlined in BS 8300: 2018 and Approved Document M
Design flexibility: timber core with glass reinforced plastic (GRP) facings, available in a range of different glazing styles and colours, each with its own test evidence
UK manufacturing: doorsets manufactured in the UK using strict factory production control system designed to provide complete control and traceability of raw materials and components
Additional resources: every doorset is shipped with detailed installation instructions and a Resident Guide
