To ensure that timber fire doors meet the approval of the Dubai Civil Defence codes, producers of fire door assemblies should work with component suppliers who are fully certified and understand the specific technical requirements of the relevant building codes and the technical requirements in terms of fire resistance.
With a staggering amount of construction taking place across the region, and with fire safety a primary consideration in building design, the challenge for all parties involved is to effectively certify their fire safety strategy to align with the Hong Kong Buildings Department. This, says Reddiplex Asia, takes the involvement of expertise and local area knowledge.

Pyroplex is an active supporter of Fire Door Safety Week (FDSW) whose aim is to stop the legacy of neglect and promote awareness of the critical importance of fire doors in preventing life changing injuries and the legal responsibilities of managing fire door safety.
Published in the Technology and Innovation section, the September 2017 issue of IFP Magazine features editorial written by Andy Walsh, Pyroplex Technical Manager regarding the innovative approach Pyroplex took in developing its intumescent technologies.
Almost every day, we will walk through at least one and often many fire doors without giving it a second thought, and yet these highly-engineered doors can often determine the extent of the spread and damage, should a fire break out in the building.
