  • Door thickness,
  • Frame rebates,
  • Frame material thickness,
  • Fixing lug quantity,
  • Hinge quantity and quality and
  • Excellent cold face thermal results.

Every door that we manufacture has approved South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) certification.

Difference between life and death


A fire door is a vital safety component of any building or structure. It is not only there to protect the building, but to save the lives of the occupants in the event of a fire.

The average fire door spends it life in service as a door, it also has to be able to perform without compromise in the event of a fire. Just like an airbag in one’s vehicle, we will only know how well it performs when it is put to the test – the difference between life and death.

Essentially the only question a specifier, contractor, developer, consultant or quantity surveyor needs to ask is – why risk specifying anything else when the consequences are so severe?
