    Fire door providers in London

    Following a recent HMO inspection I need to fit three internal FD30 fire doors. My house is in London - SW11. Does anyone have any suggestions on companies or individuals that could provide and fit the doors? I did just speak with SafeLincs who quoted £350 plus vat just to fit each door i.e. £1050 plus vat just for the fitting and that's in addition to the costs of the doors and frames - seems very expensive? Any suggestions / advice much appreciated, Many thanks

    Fire door fitting is expensive. I will PM a couple of people who are capable of doing a competent job, although both may be too far out of the centre, and one may consider the job too small.

    I'd guess a little over £1,000 per door, for labour and materials.

    Note that even the proper paint isn't cheap.

        This sounds way too expensive to me. You can buy a basic FD30 fire door, intumescent strips and ironmongery for about £120 including VAT, and just a little bit more will get you a nicer door with panels etc. There isn't usually a requirement for specialist paint for a standard fire door.

        Any competent carpenter should be able to fit them, although it's worth sounding out candidates' experience as less good carpenters may leave overly-large gaps which'll fail the inspection.

          Fire doors need to be certified. Unless the door opening is an exact fit for an off the shelf combined door and frame, the door is going to need to trimmed. The fitting tolerances are quite tight. If the door is opening onto a protected area, it will need a class zero paint or varnish finish.

          I suspect the sheds don't tell you the whole story when selling the basic door.

          (I've seen basic carpenters make a real hash of fire doors.
