Fire doors play an important role in saving lives and building regulations specify where they need to be fitted in residential and commercial property settings.
Asico fire doors are tested to BS476 1987: Parts 22. All doors and doorsets are manufactured under the Exova BM TRADA 3rd Party Certification Scheme for the Manufacture of Fire Doors. Our fire rated wooden doors are manufactured by a unique process, using top quality fire-rated core material from Halspan and Asico.
Asico fire and smoke resisting doors and door sets are available in the following performance categories:
Construction of a fire door:
Most fire doors have a solid core construction which can include: Halspan fire board, mineral rock wool and solid timber. Halspan fire proof core is an internal component or fabricated core based system for a range of standard door set items compliant with BS476 1987: Parts 22. Applied facings give a suitable surface for finishing with veneer, high pressure laminate or paint.
China insulated rock mineral wool slabs offer exceptional fire performance characteristics, as well as excellent thermal and acoustic properties and are scientifically designed to provide a very high level of compression resistance and very high operating temperatures.
-- natural or modified veneer,
-- choice of laminates
-- painted to any colour from RAL
-- two - colour painted finish
We mainly introduce the HPL (high pressure laminate) finish.
Asico offers a full range of internal high pressure laminate (HPL) doors to complement its moulded and flush collections. HPL doors employ a durable multi-layer system, incorporating three sheets of paper impregnated with various resins. As a result, laminate-faced doors withstand consistant impact and are impervious to other types of damage commonly encountered within more demangding locations. Due to their superior performace qualities, laminate doors are also impermeable and can be therefore, be frequantly cleaned and maintained without the risk of affecting the protective system.

The overall performance goal of a fire rated door is to slow fire propagation from one fire compartment to another for only a limited amount of time, during which automatic or manual firefighting may be employed to limit fire spread, and not to “fire-proof” the compartment itself.
Asico fire door is fitted with approved intumescent strips which play a crucial part in achieving the fire door rating. When subjected to heat, the intumescent strips expand and seal the gap between the door edge and the frame. Intumescent seals can be fitted within the door frame or grooved into the door edge.
