Clients / London Boroughs Tower Block Upgrades

The subject of fire safety within high rise blocks nationwide has become a major talking point with many local councils coming under scrutiny for outdated and poor quality fire doors.

None more so than throughout many of the London Boroughs where the well documented, fire related deaths at Lakenhall House and Marine Tower highlight the huge importance of a correctly manufactured and installed Fire Rated Doorset and the part it plays in saving lives.

Sentry Doors have worked closely with a number of the London Boroughs in addressing these issues and subsequently developed and tested a range of timber doorsets which not only achieve FD30 standards but are also fully compliant with Secured by Design and Q mark Enhanced Security accreditations. As a result high volumes of this range of doorsets have been supplied to locations across London.

Security is also a critical element in these scenarios especially within areas of high crime, where due to fear of break-ins residents have been found to have fitted additional locks to entrance and exit doors and in some cases doors have even been found chained shut making escape in the event of a fire impossible.

This frightening reality of being trapped several floors up with your family, unable to escape is not only shocking but completely unnecessary as Sentry Doors can supply a high quality, proven and cost effective product that not only protects lives but also treasured possessions allowing complete peace of mind.
