A gamechanger for the fire door market

A fire door with impressive, consistent fire resistance

Unlike most composite fire doors on the British market, the Guardsman Fire Door has been independently tested to the European fire test standard of EN 1634-1:2008, the more demanding test standard required by Part B of the building regulations. Results show the Guardsman Fire Door achieves an average of 100% overrun past the 30-minute mark on both glazed and unglazed doors.

An environmentally friendly fire door

The Guardsman Fire Door uses Agrifiber, a board material made from resin bonded agricultural fibres. It’s stronger and more stable than the phenolic foam that most other composite fire doors use within the market. It’s also a green building product, which will help buildings achieve better environmental credentials.

Adaptable door range

The Guardsman Fire Door can be manufactured to suit any structural door aperture in a range of door styles from just two base designs.

More importantly, its use of Agrifiber means it offers very consistent material densities which delivers the same consistently exceptional fire resistance results every time.

An award-winning fire door

The Guardsman Fire Door won Best New Product of the Year at the G Awards 2021. The prestigious industry award is for an outstanding product that will significantly improve overall building performance.

The judging panel said: “Achieving a 30-minute fire door with both glazing, a letterplate and with PAS 24:2016 performance is remarkable.”
