Please Check for your Building Control Approval before purchase.
We have been supplying our door upgrade products for many years and during this time we’ve been co-operating with Building Control Officers, and are widely recognised and approved. However we always recommend seeking approval for our systems by asking your local Building Control Officer (or relevant authority) first before purchasing and upgrading your doors to avoid any unnecessary problems with their approval.
IMPORTANT – You MUST ensure your door(s) meet our minimum requirements. Please get advice from our technical team before purchasing. Thank you
Because our upgrade kits must be applied in a specific way in order to achieve the specified fire ratings, we advise using the downloads available on the right-hand side of the page. Here, in-depth Application Instructions for the range can be found, arranged by individual coating, primer or top coat. The Technical Overviews summarise the recommended usage of the coatings, including spreading rate and drying times. COSHH data is also available to download.
