Understanding the Evolving Landscape

In the realm of construction and manufacturing, the pivotal role of door specifiers in ensuring compliance and safety cannot be overstated. At EBD Steel Doors, we comprehend the weight of this responsibility and recognise the evolving demands in the wake of critical assessments like the Dame Judith Hackitt Review and the enactment of the Building Safety Act 2022.

The ever-changing landscape of regulations and standards highlights the critical need for increased competence in the built environment. For us, this means making a concerted effort to demonstrate expertise—a synthesis of skills, knowledge, experience, and ethical behaviour. Staying at the forefront necessitates a consistent commitment to keeping up with evolving products, standards, and legislation. It’s a necessary skill for navigating the intricate terrain of door specifications.

Designers’ Impact on a Building Lifecycle

What is the significance of this? The UK’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) emphasises the importance of designers, particularly in the early stages of a project. Choices made during this phase have consequences throughout a building’s lifecycle, influencing risks during construction and subsequent sustained use.

EBD Steel Doors takes a proactive approach to assessing your door design, functionality, and specifications. We understand the complexities and importance of this process, and our position is more than just a task; we are committed to providing competent, compliant, and ultimately high-quality life-preserving solutions.

Fire doors and escape doors transcend their physical form—they stand as lifelines within a structure. Our doorsets, meticulously engineered by professionals and infused with cutting-edge technology, align seamlessly with the latest standards, ensuring the utmost safety assurance.


EBD’s Director of Compliance and Public Affairs, Dave Timson, explains:

“In a post-Grenfell environment, the focus on fire product compliance and competencies in the industry has intensified. It is crucial for companies to demonstrate their competence through industry training and qualifications. This not only enhances the credibility of their products but also instils confidence for the customer regarding the quality and safety of the offerings.


“At EBD Steel Doors, we understand the significance of providing a complete service that goes beyond just delivering doors. By being able to demonstrate our competency through training and qualifications, we assure our customers that they are making a safe choice. Our commitment to compliance ensures that our doors meet the necessary standards, reducing the risk associated with safety-critical products.


“In the construction industry, where safety is paramount, it is unwise to take unnecessary risks with non-compliant products. By choosing EBD Steel Doors, customers can rely on our expertise and support in specifying a fully compliant door solution. We believe in providing not just a product but a comprehensive service that prioritises safety, giving our clients peace of mind in their construction projects.”
