Q-Mark Certification

Q-Mark Certification

We believe that fire safety is of high importance and therefore we invest time in producing high quality safety doors. Our products are all rigorously tested to ensure that they meet the appropriate safety standards, to our clients’ requirements. At RW Joinery we understand that our clients would like third party reassurance from an autonomous source to reassure you of our testing procedures. This is why we use a Q-Mark testing scheme; it is a well-known, well-established and reliable independent testing procedure.

We have a legal requirement when manufacturing our fire doors to provide proof of the ability of our products to resist the passage of fire through the provision of test evidence. Fire door certification provides independent reassurance to specifiers and purchasers that our products are manufactured to a consistent quality ready for our client. As well as demonstrating that the door meets the legally acceptable minimum standards, the Exova BM Trada Q-Mark fire door manufacturer scheme can provide additional reassurance. Our products are fit for purpose through on-going compliance to the original product specification.

What the scheme aims to achieve:

  • Raise the on-going standard of fire door manufacture
  • Ensure on-going compliance with the original product specification
  • Maximise the product’s service life
  • Provide peace of mind that the manufacturer is consistently producing a quality product through independent verification by a third party certification body

Through RW Joinery’s knowledge and comprehension of the manufacture of performance timber doorsets we are also familiar with the full requirements of installation. We operate a full quality assurance installation service on any of our products. Our craftsmen and installers are trained and qualified to provide and fit Q-Mark standard doors.

It is vital that building owners meet safety standards for tenants, patients, students or any other customer that may use their establishment. We aim to produce only the highest quality of doors that protect and endure through the most difficult of fire situations. Our clients’ safety is of prime importance to us so we will never reduce our standards of testing. You can rely on us to protect your staff and your establishment by reducing the risk of the spread of smoke and fire. We have a reputation for consistently reliable fire doors across a range of industries including: commercial, educational, health and leisure.

We advise our clients to avoid purchasing a door that has not been third party tested. This could lead to reduced safety and security and potentially threaten lives. If you have any further questions in regards to Q-Mark certification, please do not hesitate to contact us or visit the Q-Mark Certification website.
