In the realm of construction and fire safety, a lesser-known aspect revolves around the installation of EI rated steel doorsets. Often, the installation process involves the filling of door frames with wet mortar or concrete. While this meticulous step is crucial for compliance, it raises significant questions regarding the post-installation performance of these doorsets.

The Impact of the Installation Process

In accordance with EN 1634-1: 2014+A1:2018 standards, door frames utilising water-based materials must undergo a 28-day conditioning period before fire testing. This regulation prompts a critical consideration: Do doorsets requiring backfilling guarantee the necessary performance within this essential 28-day span?
