Distinction Doors To Showcase Fire Door System At The Fire Safety Event

Distinction Doors will demonstrate the capabilities of its proven, consistent, and compliant fire door system, fds at The Fire Safety Event from 30th April to 1st May at the NEC in Birmingham.

Visitors to stand 5/A36 can touch, see, and hear about the fds FD30/E30 internal and external composite fire door system via demonstration products, samples and digital displays, under the guidance of Distinction Doors’ technical and commercial representatives.

Half-moon glazed composite fire door

The show presents a compelling moment for visitors to admire and learn more about Distinction’s half-moon glazed and thermally insulated composite fire door, a style exclusive to the fds system when part of a complete doorset.

Part of its tested and trusted fds range, this 30-minute fire door style will feature on stand 5/A36 in striking Colza Yellow. Other fds door styles and configurations will be presented alongside standard and any RAL colour options.

Only supplier of UKCA-accredited composite fire doorset

The stand will also communicate that the fds system is the only UKCA-accredited external composite fire doorset in the country. UKCA-accredited fabricators of the fds system can therefore provide a Declaration of Performance (DoP) that references both BS EN 14351-1, the external pedestrian doorset standard and BS EN 16034, the standard for fire resisting and/or smoke control pedestrian doorsets proving compliance.

Rich opportunity
“The Fire Safety Event provides a rich opportunity to connect suppliers with specifiers and key decision makers to share, educate and promote the best fire prevention and protection products and services in the country,” comments Gareth Roberts, head of fds sales for Distinction Doors. “We are proud to exhibit our proven fds 30-minute fire door system. 
“We are the only UK supplier to offer a UKCA-accredited external composite fire doorset alongside our range of glazed fire door styles, this means we are an attractive proposition for visitors, especially when coupled with our testing and certification pedigree. 
“fds is already trusted by many Registered Providers and local authorities, this show provides ample opportunity to showcase this and raise awareness of modern composite fire door capabilities amongst fire safety professionals. Our team will be available to answer questions and discuss requirements across the three days.”
More on fds

The fds fire door system is independently tested to British Standard BS 476-22:1987 (FD30) and the more demanding European test method BS EN 1634-1:2014 (E30). It has achieved an average of 45 minutes of integrity performance over 44 individual test specimens subject to 22 bi-directional fire tests.

To address variables in test laboratories and prove consistent performance, the system experienced the same test methods across three countries and was installed in both rigid and flexible supporting wall construction.

All submitted doorsets featured the same letterplates, viewers, and auto-throw lock to underpin the need for consistency in testing. A variety of overhead door closers were also tested.

Every fire test was filmed. Visitors can watch this footage when attending stand 5/A36.

Fully Compliant

The fds system also delivers on ambient smoke control (EN1634-3:2004) for internal applications, security (PAS24:2022), weather (BS 6375), and thermal performance (Approved Document L).

It is Secured by Design accredited and triple Q-marked for fire resistance, smoke control, and enhanced security under the BM Trada Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacturer certification scheme.

fds is available nationwide through a network of official fds doorset manufacturing partners, each selected by Distinction Doors and audited to meet the non-mandatory requirements of Q-Mark STD 170.
