Rawlins Paints, along with standard fire-retardant paint products, has various solutions for upgrading the fire resistance of normal timber doors. We work closely with manufacturers to ensure that the products we offer achieve the best possible fire protection. For clarification on minimum requirements before buying one of our fire proof products, please review the information provided in the 'DATASHEETS' tab on the product in question. A written specification should be obtained from our Technical Department for your project prior to use to ensure this system will be suitable. Contact us by phone on 0113 2455450 or email [email protected] Remember, intumescent paint is just one element of protection and DOES NOT create a ‘fire door’. Intumescent materials and hardware MUST also be used to ensure your doors meet the required standards of your authority.
Easy to Use Fire Door Paint can improve the fire resistance of your doors by 30 or sometimes 60 minutes. Each pack of fire door paint can be used to increase the fire resistance of suitable wooden doors, whether they have flat panels, raised and fielded edges or are ledged and braced doors. Available as a convenient pack containing the required basecoat and topcoat to protect 2 doors in a white or coloured Eggshell or Gloss finish. Thermoguard UK will issue a Fire Certificate for Authority approved projects following completion.
If you’re looking to retain the natural beauty of your wooden doors and don’t want to paint the surface, then our Fire Door Varnish is a great choice. Gives a clear coating over bare wood or existing stains and varnishes. If you’re wondering how to varnish a door, we would recommend that you test the surface over any existing coatings. You don’t always need to strip off any old stains or coatings before applying the varnish, and it’s the perfect way to retain a period feel in your home while still maintaining fire safety levels. It’s suitable for hard and soft wood doors, but not ‘hollow core’ or MDF doors.
Features & Benefits
We also sell intumescent strips (also known as smoke seals), which work as smoke and fire seals around doors that you are upgrading. Graphite based, they’re self-adhesive and easy to apply. Astroflame Intumescent Acoustic Acrylic Mastic is also an easy to apply intumescent sealer. It gives a five-hour barrier to fire and has excellent sound protection, perfect for sealing small gaps around fire doors.
