In conjunction with the government and number of industry bodies, we are supporting this year’s Fire Door Safety Week from 24th – 30th September. The campaign is focused on raising awareness of the critical importance of fire doors in saving lives and protecting property.

With over 4 million new fire doors bought and installed every year in the UK, the majority made from timber, fire doors are often the first line of defence in a fire and their correct specification, maintenance and management can be the difference between life and death for building occupants. Even with such a significance to peoples’ safety, they remain a significant area of neglect. They are often the first thing to be downgraded during the specification process and mismanaged throughout their service life; propped open, damaged and badly maintained.

Carlisle Brass, a UK leading ironmongery supplier, plays a significant role in ensuring the fire safety of commercial properties by supplying fire tested ironmongery, intumescent protection and acoustic sealing systems. We are here to guide our customers when specifying the next commercial project. We are an ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 registered, which means that our branded products are fully traceable from point of manufacture to a customer delivery and that environmental impact is being constantly measured and improved upon.

Accredited products are stringently tested to ensure they comply with the latest regulations, which makes the products the ideal choice for the professional installer, architect or specifier. We are a preferred partner to all top 10 housing developers in the UK. Our team has 12 RegAI and 15 DipGAI qualified professionals and we have been recognised with Gold Member status from the Supply Chain Sustainability School.

We have numerous ranges of intumescent strips/kits for both hinges and locks, which you can view here -

We are proud to play an increasing role within the construction industry with regards to legislation and standards. We aim to provide products that meet the required standards and needs of our customers, whilst always keeping them informed of any changes within the market.
