Protest have vast experience in the installation of Fire Doors..
We specialise in the installation of fire doors, fire screens, and frames. The correct installation of fire door assemblies and door sets is fundamental to their overall performance as it will ensure the fire door will remain reliable to its fire integrity rating.
Around three million new fire doors are bought and installed every year in the United Kingdom. The fire doors play an essential part in offering the first line of defence.
It is critical that fire doors are installed correctly by a competent person otherwise they will not be effective at holding back fire and smoke. Not all joiners and carpenters understand the installation and maintenance requirements for fire doors so only qualified installers should be considered.
As stated by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):
In addition to the annual inspection and testing of fire door
assemblies, it is the facility manager’s responsibility to retain
records — in either hard copy or digital form.

UK law places an obligation on building operators to ensure compliance.
Data on over 100,000 inspections shows 75% of fire doors fail to meet safety standards.
