My Department has worked closely with the fire door industry to ensure all affected doors have been removed from the market and has gained industry commitment that no product will return to market until it can be proven to meet the required standard, including 30-minute fire resistance on both sides of the door.

We have been clear that the Glass Reinforced Polyester composite fire door industry is responsible for replacing their defective fire doors. My Department is working with the Association of Composite Door Manufacturers and wider stakeholders as the fire door industry develops its plan for repair and replacement of affected doors where required.
