Stairways offer a unique range of third-party-accredited fire & smoke resistant door sets for a wide variety of applications, providing convenience in normal operations whilst maximising safety in an emergency due to their sustained resistance to fire and smoke.

Legislation on fire and smoke protection continues to be an interest at a national level. Stairways have therefore ensured that all of their fire & smoke doors meet the requirements and have undergone stringent testing methods to meet the highest specification.

Stairways are an accredited member of the Fire Door Alliance to ensure all components of a fire door assemble are tested in a controlled environment to a minimum fire resistance of FD30 and certificated by an independent third party. All fire & smoke door components are factory-fitted and precision-engineered to fit with the required certification standard.

Stairways’ entire door range, including the Eco-Mercial, Residor, and Securdor, has been fire tested to meet the required resistance ratings.

Stairways manufacture acoustic door solutions with a range of features including fire resistance and glazing options, making them suitable for a range of large-scale development projects across various sectors.

When specifying soundproof doors, an important consideration is Sound Transmission Control (STC); this determines how much sound would be prevented from passing through a door. The higher the STC rating, the more sound resistant to the door. The acoustic range at Stairways currently provides a maximum STC rating of 45db.

Each acoustic door set has different characteristics at different frequencies, so selecting the best solution is not necessarily about the highest rating. Stairways are here to help and advise you.

Acoustic doors at Stairways, available in single or double closing configurations, are supplied as complete assemblies, most of which are pre-hung in an appropriate frame and can be supplied in various finishes of your choice. All Stairways tests are in accordance with Approved Document E – resistance to the passage of sound.

The appropriate acoustic rating can be achieved across Stairways entire door range, including the Eco-Mercial, Residor and Securdor to meet your individual project.

All apartment entrance doors supplied by Stairways carry the Pas 24 certification which means the doors are Part Q compliant in accordance with the building regulations.

Part Q of the Building regulations stipulates that ”All easily accessible doorsets (including garage doorsets and communal entrance doorsets) that provide access into a dwelling or into a building containing a dwelling be a secure doorset in accordance with paragraphs 1.2 to 1.4” Please refer to building regulations Part Q for more details.

At Stairways to comply with this, we supply our product to the most common test standard which is Pas 24. Just some of the tests within this standard involve a cut through test, lock and cylinder manipulation test just to name a few.
