Safety and Security
Our Double Steel Fire Exit door is secured with 8 stainless steel ball bearing hinges, 8 dog bolts and a single point (for leaf and a half sizes) or 2 point (for double sizes) security push bar with adjustable shoot bolts.
This door is excellent for high occupancy buildings and all are fully compliant to satisfy fire regulations and building control, as well as having a threshold compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act.
Built to Last
Our metal fire exit doors are finished in white as standard or have the option to powder coat to a colour of your choice from our extensive range of RAL and BS stock colours. Our doors are also supplied with weather and draught proof seals to ensure longevity of your door.
If your fire exit door also needs to have external access, we have a range of Exidor Outside Access Devices which include knob, lever and code lock options, available in stock.
Need it Next Day?
If you have an urgent need to meet fire regulations on your property, all our doors are carried in stock and available for next day delivery via dedicated courier (customisation such as powder coating will incur additional lead time).
Can I order this door opening inwards?
Fire exit doors cannot open inwards. In the event of emergency, the door is made to open fast, by rapidly pushing the push bar down and door outwards
How do double doors get delivered?
Your steel double door will be delivered in a minimum of 4 boxes:
2 x door leaves packaged individually
1 x box containing the hinge posts
1 x box containing the head of the frame and the bottom threshold
By delivering your steel double door frame in self-assembly pieces, it reduces the amount of handling of the doors. This in turn reduces associated health and safety risks as the door and frame are delivered in separate, manageable boxes meaning they’re less likely to be dropped causing unnecessary damage to the door.
Please note, delivery is kerbside only. We request that another party is present to help unload.
How do I put together a double door knockdown frame?

What are the door sizes? What is the clear opening?
The sizes listed are external frame sizes.
We offer side panels and over panels if you need to add to the width or height of the door. We also offer a cut down service to reduce the height of the door
To calculate the clear opening (when the door is open), subtract 135mm from the width dimension. E.G. 895mm-135mm=760mm clear opening

What is Security Trim?
The security trim kit fits around the perimeter of the door frame, preventing any packing from being seen externally and making the door as a whole more secure.
It hides un-level or large gaps, hides the position of fixings eliminating the risk of tampering from intruders and crucially protects the fixings from attack.
