Sidey Invest in Bespoke Fire Door Manufacturing Facility

Following on from being among the first UK companies to achieve new fire door certification, Joint Managing Director, Steve Hardy talks about Sidey’s recent investment in a bespoke fire door factory and the benefits that it will bring...

Upturn in demand for FD30 products called for the development of a strategy of long-term commitment which would position us to meet our customers additional needs for fire door products. Quality, commitment, and service is at the heart of everything that we do, which was the main driving force in this investment.

Once the decision was made to invest in the new facility, our team developed the management systems, processes & procedures that would enable us to undertake the manufacturing and support process required. This was all put in place along with new machinery & equipment which allowed for certification & manufacture to be undertaken.

The benefits of this facility include extra storage capacity, additional machinery & equipment, along with a recruitment drive for a team that have been trained & retain specialist skills in the manufacture of our FD30 range.

Our FD30 Composite Fire Door collection offers glazed & unglazed options, are fully certified under the BM Trada Scheme STD 170 and tested to BS EN 1634-1 for fire resistance, both internally & externally.

The door sets have been Q Mark third party accredited for both fire & security manufacturing consistency and have also achieved EN 1634-3 for smoke resistance & PAS 24 enhanced security.

It is vital that products and services are fully accredited & certified. At Sidey we are firmly dedicated to providing the very highest standards & our long list of accreditations & investments confirm this.
