What to Consider When Choosing Your External Doorset

fire rated doors, door manufacturer manchester, hospital doorsets manchester

We manufacture and supply a large range of bespoke products that are both fire and non-fire rated, including high-quality external timber doorsets. Forming our Defender Range, our PAS24 external doorsets are fully certified by Secured by Design, a police organisation that works to improve the security of buildings.

When choosing an external doorset for your commercial or private project there are several points to consider to ensure you find the most suitable product for your requirements. These include:

Style

We recognise that whilst a doorset should serve its purpose to the fullest extent, it should also leave a lasting impression with a beautiful design. Our external timber doorsets can be supplied factory finished in any standard RAL colour with an expansive choice of fanlights and sidelights which are fully certified. We take pride in our ability to manufacture to bespoke specifications, so whatever style you have in mind, we are here to assist in supplying you with an exceptional doorset to suit your needs.

We also offer Hoppe Atlanta handles which are polished chrome as standard but can be customised to your desired finish on request, as well as providing letterplates and metal rain deflectors.

Security

Security is paramount to our dedicated team, which is why we ensure our Defender Range complies with Secured by Design standards. Our external doorsets are Q-Mark BM TRADA approved and are supplied with the following security components:

  • Winkhaus Multi-Point Locking System
  • Euro Cylinder (Anti Bump Thumb Turn)
  • Door Chains and Viewer If Required

Our external timber doorsets can also be provided with an FD30 fire rating.

Weather Performance

A good quality doorset is essential to withstand the changing weather, therefore our doorsets are vigorously tested for strength and weather performance annually by Exova. In addition, we supply our Defender Range with a weather proof mobility threshold.

Whatever your needs, we will take time to identify the kind of environment the doorset will be used in to provide a bespoke solution to fit your exact requirements in colour, dimensions and finish. If you would like more information on our Defender Range, please contact us on 01254 870850.

Brexit Statement 2019

As we all can agree it is currently still difficult with any degree of certainty to make any accurate, and detailed plans with regards to Britain’s exit from the EU. We at Pendle Doors Ltd are preparing our business to ensure that whatever the outcome of any Brexit negotiations that we will have the ability to meet all of our customer’s requirements and ongoing supply.

We have been actively working with our key suppliers to understand the risks they may face and any delays to product supply. We have been looking at our high risk product categories and specific core materials with any associated risks. This work is currently ongoing and plans are being put into place with our Key supply chain.

We are confident that many of our product categories are at low risk with end products and raw material being sourced from the UK. While some products do come from the EU we will be actively communicating with our customers and suppliers whilst Brexit reaches it’s conclusion.

Other steps we have taken to mitigate the impact of Brexit is to increase our current stock holdings and this will be ongoing throughout 2019.

Any further questions you may have please do not hesitate to contact me and I assure you our best attention at all times.

Regards

Ian Hartley

A door’s a door, right? No, a fire door is an engineered safety device. Here at Pendle Doors Ltd all our fire doors are fully certified. Fire Door Safety Week will take place this year from 24th September until 30th September 2018.

This year’s campaign aims to spread public awareness. Its purpose is to engage & educate building owners and users on how to ensure they remain safe and reduce risks by having the right fire doors installed.

There are about three million new fire doors bought and installed every year in the UK, the vast majority made from timber. These timber fire doorsets can be neglected for a number of reasons, generally due to incorrect fitting, propped open by others or badly damaged due to a lack of correct and efficient maintenance. What people fail to realise is that these fire doors are usually the first line of defence and therefore could be the difference between life and death. As a result, Fire Door Safety Week was created.

This is a great opportunity to raise awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in everyday life, whether this be around the home, the workplace or everyday public buildings. It will draw attention to issues surrounding poor installation and maintenance, encouraging building owners to check the operation and condition of their fire doors, then replace any that aren’t satisfactory or meet fire regulation standards.

To help reduce the risk of fire, these five safety tips have been created by the #FireDoorSafetyWeek team.

  • Check for certification Is there a label or plug on top (or occasionally on the side) of the door to show it is a certificated fire door? You can use the selfie function on your camera phone or a mirror to check. If there is, that’s good news, otherwise report it to whoever is in charge of your building.

 

  • Check the gaps Check the gaps around the top and sides of the door are consistently less than 4mm when closed. You can use a £1 coin to give a feel for scale, this is about 3mm thick. The gap under the door can be slightly larger (up to 8mm is not uncommon), but it does depend on the door – as a rule of thumb, if you can see light under the door, the gap is likely to be too big. It’s good news if the door fits the frame and it’s not damaged. If not, report it. If the gaps are too big smoke and fire could travel through the cracks.

 

  • Check the seals Are there any intumescent seals around the door or frame and are they intact with no sign of damage? These seals are usually vital to the fire door’s performance, expanding if in contact with heat to ensure fire (and in some cases smoke) can’t move through the cracks. If not, report it – the door may not be properly maintained and in the intensity of a fire may not protect you long enough.

 

  • Check the hinges Are the hinges firmly fixed (three or more of them), with no missing or broken screws? If you see problems, report it – the door is obviously not properly maintained and in the intensity of a fire may not perform and hold back the fire for long enough.

 

  • Check the door closes properly Open the door about halfway, let go and allow it to close by itself. Does it close firmly onto the latch without sticking on the floor or the frame? If not, report it. A fire door only works when it’s closed. A fire door is completely useless if it’s wedged open or can’t close fully.

If you think the building you’re living in, working in or visiting has a faulty fire door, report it to whoever manages or owns the building. Remember, fire doors save life and property.

So, if you’re looking for a UK door manufacturer to provide you with quality bespoke timber doorsets, contact us. We know that every door serves a purpose, whether that’s our PAS24 Secured by Design external doorsets for safety and security or a door that will leave that long-lasting impression.

Pendle Doors is there to help and protect. Contact us on 01254 870 850 for more information about our bespoke fire doors.

Staff anniversary, Door Manufacturer UK, Bespoke timber doorsets

We would like to congratulate Joanna Clarke on her first-year work anniversary with us here at Pendle Doors.

Known to us all as Jo, we would like to take this opportunity to thank her for the contribution, dedication, commitment and hard work shown since she joined our team.

Working part time, Jo is responsible for important administration duties attributed to a busy manufacturer of bespoke timber fire doors, dealing with enquiries from both customers and suppliers whilst building and maintaining strong working relationships.

Another aspect of Jo’s role is that of HR support throughout the company.  Her skills have helped make her an integral part of our team and we look forward to working with her for many years to come.

Please join us in congratulating Jo on her successful first year at Pendle Doors.

According to the UK government, non-fire-resistant doors in high rise tower blocks should be replaced with doorsets accredited for fire performance by a certified third party. The letter from the Department of Communities and Local Government also went on to explain that these new doors should provide fire resistance for at least 30 minutes.

Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative, announced that it requires not only third-party certification for fire resistance but also for security, to reduce crime rates. Regrettably statistics show when it comes to crimes such as burglaries in the UK, front doors are the main source of access. Therefore, SBD aims to make these as secure as possible.

Dual certification is more important than ever as it protects homes and commercial property from both fire and criminal attacks. This new SBD requirement is set to be an ongoing initiative for all manufacturers moving forward from the Grenfell disaster.

This isn’t new to the industry, since 2005 manufacturers have been required to have a

third-party certification sign off on all security products such as windows and doors. Further to that in 2015, the more in-depth security and fire requirements are contained in the established Approved Document B, that carries an equal weighting under the building regulations in England.

All third-party certification therefore requires regular re-tests and production audits to ensure that the quality of the product is assured and maintained over time. This goes above and beyond the one-off testing that was previously required by the building regulations.

Pendle Doors Ltd have full third party accreditation and certification for the new dual standard. For more information on our range of SBD certified doors please contact us on 01254 870850.
