New FireShield FD30S fire door launched

New FireShield FD30S fire door launched after successfully securing BS EN 1634 certification.

Bowater by Birtley has introduced an exclusive new FireShield FD30S fire door after successfully securing BS EN 1634 certification.


The door is manufactured using a sustainable agrifiber core, a material recognised as a green product that can contribute to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) credits.


A solid timber frame and durable GRP facing completes the construction of the door, making it one of only a handful on the market to offer a FD30S certified door to this standard.


Following rigorous, independent testing to European Standards at a specialist test house in Germany, the Bowater FireShield FD30S has been proven to maintain its integrity beyond the required minimum 30 minutes, preventing the passage of flames and hot gases.


In addition, the full FireShield FD30S range has been created as BIM models to deliver accurate and seamless specification whilst contributing to the ‘golden thread’ and digital record of information for each building.


Available in a wide range of colours and a solid six panel, long panel or flush design, the FireShield FD30S delivers a fire door solution without compromising on style. The doorsets are fitted with Yale hardware including the Auto Secure multipoint lock for added security.
