Fire doors. Don’t let your reputation go up in flames!

At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies we take fire seriously. We only stock the highest quality CERTIFIRE Approved fire doors and components. And, because we appreciate that fire safety compliance can be both complex and potentially disastrous for your business, all of our nationwide branches are BWF Approved Fire Door Centres where staff who have been fully trained by the BWF to understand fire doors and the associated Regulations are on hand to offer advice.

As standard, all our fire doors have a half-hour fire rating and are designed to be long-lasting to offer peace of mind.

Available in a comprehensive selection of styles and finishes, we have a variety of standard doors that offer extra security and protection. We are also able to provide one-hour fire-rated doors, door sets and other specialist services.


  • To avoid invalidating the certification of the fire door only Certifire Approved ironmongery and intumescents must be used.
  • Failure to do this could mean that you put lives and property at risk and leave yourself open to criminal prosecution.
  • The new Building Regulations - Approved Document B strongly recommends that a third party accredited Fire Door Assembly must be used.
  • To ensure you comply, the door closer, intumescents, glazing, lock, latch and hinges must be third party tested and approved and compatible with the particular fire door and frame.
  • By using BWF-CERTIFIRE certificated doorset components, you can have complete confidence in the specification, selection, purchase and use of our fire doors.
