The MHCLG announces the results of their investigation into timber fire doors
Yesterday the MHCLG test results on the performance of timber fire doors were published.
In a written statement announcing the results of the testing from a sample of timber fire doors from 25 manufacturers, James Brokenshire, Secretary of State for the MHCLG said that he was “pleased to report that all [timber fire doors] have succeeded in meeting the required 30-minute fire performance standard”. He went on to say that an expert panel had “concluded that they do not believe there is a performance concern with timber fire doors across industry, where they are purchased directly from the manufacturer and produced to specification.”
