Letter to the Editor - Tradesmith to suspend the sale of bought-in fire-rated composite doors

Dear Ian,

Following the Government's announcement (31 July) that five manufacturers'fire doors failed to meet fire performance standards after an on-going investigation by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), Tradesmith is suspending the sale of bought-in fire-rated composite doors until further tests have been carried out and the results published.

I expect others who buy fire doors for resale will be doing the same.

The Secretary of State for Communities James Brokenshire has instructed major fire door suppliers to meet this week and agree a clear plan of action to tackle the failings, with weekly reports to update him saying: "there is a broader issue across the fire door market".

The tests are ongoing, and doors that failed have been withdrawn from the market and local trading standards informed. …»

How does the industry win that trust back after this?

Sincerely

Mark Hutchinson, MD Tradesmith
