- TS82: for the contribution of lever handle and knob furniture to the performance of fire resisting door assemblies
- TS83: for the contribution of variable geometry unsprung and concealed hinges to the performance of fire resisting door assemblies
The Certifire scheme assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of products and systems and the brand is recognized by regulatory authorities worldwide as an international mark of fire safety across a diverse range of products including hardware.
Certification to Warringtonfire’s Certifire scheme for building hardware in accordance with TS80, TS81, TS82 and TS83 will provides end users with confidence that the approved products will be capable of contributing to the performance of a doorset - without detriment to its fire performance – for the designated fire resistance period, whilst also demonstrating compliance with performance specifications.
Voluntary third party certification schemes require regular audit testing and factory production control audits to ensure that product quality is assured and maintained over time and go above and beyond the one-off testing required by Building Regulations.
The fundamental benefit of Certifire is seated in giving the regulator, specifier, customer and end-user confidence with regards to the stated performance of the product and provides an informed choice when purchasing or selecting the product.
The scheme can also be used by architects, specifiers, contractors and building owners, as Certifire provides assurance that fire protection products and systems correctly installed will perform as required. Therefore, avoiding costly mistakes and dramatically reducing risk.
