FIRAS certification

OpenView Security Solutions, a privately owned UK security company and supplier of electrical and mechanical services, has achieved full FIRAS certification for Fire Rated Timber Door Sets and Penetrations.

The company’s in-house factory produces residential and communal door sets as used in tower blocks and other shared housing. OpenView has also gained certification for Fire Stopping.

Andy Ward, Sales Director at OpenView says: “We are proud to have achieved FIRAS certification which enables us to demonstrate to clients that our door sets meet all regulatory requirements and provide residents with the highest level of safety and protection. This enhances OpenView’s comprehensive portfolio of fire protection services and enables us to offer an even wider range of services to our public sector clients.”

OSS provides a design, manufacturing and installation service for bespoke timber doors, residential and communal portcullis door sets and screens. Security and fire door is made to comply with relevant regulatory requirements including sustainability, Secured by Design and DDA standards. The FD30 and FD60 fire doors are all fully tested to BS EN 1634-1:2014 standards and use fire-rated Door Closers, Hinges, Smoke Seals and Intumescent Seals to help stop fires spreading.

The FIRAS Fire Stopping certification ensures that penetrations, where services such as water, gas, electrics or communications enter through a building’s fire resistant compartments, are appropriately sealed with a suitable fire stopping solution including Fire Batts, Intumescent Sealants and Pillows, Fire Sleeves, Pipe Collars and Wraps.

Andy Ward adds: “OpenView is uniquely experienced in the delivery of total fire protection solutions that enable public and private sector housing providers to meet their regulatory obligations and ensure the highest level of protection for residents. Our portfolio also includes emergency lighting, fire alarms, extinguishers, compartmentation, fire coatings and fire risk assessment remedial works programmes, all of which are installed to meet or exceed the latest regulations and standards.”
