Sales success for Distinction Door’s GRP composite fire doors

Distinction Doors Fire DoorDistinction Doors, the UK’s largest supplier of GRP composite doors has just announced that sales of its fire doors are up 25% year on year. Chantel Roach, Distinction’s Marketing Manager said, “We are delighted that the quality of our fire doors is being reflected in the strong sales increase.”

Distinction Doors’ GRP composite fire doors are supplied by the world leading manufacturer Nan Ya Plastics and offer the exceptional quality and attention to detail that Distinction’s customers will be familiar with. When fitted correctly, the doors will resist fire for a period of 30 or 60 minutes, in accordance with British Standard BS 476-22 or BS EN 1634-1. They also have the same commitment to aesthetics as Distinction’s standard doors, so their high quality visual appearance is not compromised by the safety aspects.

The high quality construction of the fire doors includes stiles and rails of hardwood lamels, finger jointed together which are bonded to the skin. The phenolic foam is constructed from fire retardant phenolic resin, flame retardant foaming and curing agents at a density of 0.075 g/cm3. The compression moulded door skins are manufactured from 2mm thick thermoset GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester). Finally, performance on the FD60 fire door is enhanced with a layer of glass fibre matting applied to the inside of the inner and outer skins.

The sad truth is that fire is one of the biggest dangers we face: statistics show that in 2011/2012 there were 37,600 accidental fires in UK dwellings. When they meet the correct standards, fire doors can help to minimise the danger to property and life. And when they’re a Distinction fire door, homeowners can enjoy both peace of mind and superior aesthetics. Judging by the sales figures, it’s clear that this is an extremely attractive combination!
