Fire Door Experts deliver yet another project for Specialist Door Solutions

Another fix-only project in conjunction with SDS.

December saw the FDE team prove themselves as one of the leading fire door installation companies with our 5th project undertaken for SDS (Specialist Door Solutions) in 2020.

As preferred installers for SDS, Fire Door Experts were presented to the Main Contractors for an Essex hospital refurbishment.

Scope of Work

The project included the installation of 80 fire rated door-sets, which were a mix of FD30s and FD60s fire ratings and single, double and leaf and a half door configurations.

All doors feature wood veneer facings with blue door edge protection; ironmongery varied depending on the doors’ final intended use and location within the building.

Even when engaged on a fix-only basis, the FDE team check every detail on the door production schedule. Proposed door leaf sizes need to be confirmed, as do door swing actions and handings to ensure each door-set is correct to be installed with minimum fuss once on site and to allow the project to run as smoothly as possible.

Once work commenced, Fire Door Experts maintained a consistent onsite Project Leader, to offer all parties involved a single go-to point of contact to streamline all communications.

Progress of Work

Hospitals are busy buildings, and even when the wards are being refurbished, there are patients waiting for the beds! Team FDE worked with the Main Contractors to ensure the right part of each ward was handed over on time to receive the incoming patients.

Progress was reported back to the Main Contractor on a regular basis, with installation photographs of each door-set supplied via shared Dropbox folders per door-set.

Having handed over the first floor, which allows patients to occupy the wards and much needed beds, our team have now commenced work on the next phase of the project on ground floor.
