Bespoke Fire Doors

Bespoke fire doors in the UK offer the perfect blend of safety and style, allowing you to enhance your home's aesthetics while meeting stringent fire regulations. But what exactly can you customize, and how do you ensure compliance? Let's delve into the fascinating world of bespoke fire doors!

What are Bespoke Fire Doors?

Unlike standard fire doors, which come in limited sizes and designs, bespoke fire doors are made to measure, catering to your specific needs and preferences. This is particularly important in up-market homes, luxury hotels and prestigious commercial property where aesthetics are important, in addition to fire safety. 

How does a bespoke fire door work?

Bespoke fire doors provide fire resistance in the event of a fire for a specific length of time. Bespoke FD30 fire doors are certified fire resistant to 30 minutes and FD60 fire doors are certified fire resistant to 60 minutes. Fire door sets are constructed with a fire-resistant core and fitted with fire rated ironmongery including intumescent seals which form a seal around the door to prevent fire and smoke from escaping.  At Denleigh, we specialise in bespoke fire doors that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also engineered to withstand fire, ensuring maximum safety and compliance with rigorous standards. Our fire doors and frames are crafted with precision and are available in a range of styles and finishes to suit diverse architectural needs.
