JB Kind launches innovative new PAS 24 compliant door leaf

  • 2 May 2023

Derbyshire-based door distributor JB Kind is launching its new PAS 24 door leaf to doorset manufacturers, and its PAS 24 fire resistant security doorsets service to developers, architects and specifiers, after investing in an innovative new door core which has met the stringent set of standards necessary to receive the PAS 24 accreditation.

Forming the basis of the company’s new PAS 24 fire resistant, security doorsets, the new PAS 24 door leaf enables manufacturers to use it within their current offering, or for residential developers to purchase fully assembled PAS 24 compliant entrance doorsets.

New PAS 24 products offer benefits for manufacturers, developers and architects

Doorset fabricators are able to integrate JB Kind’s innovative new door leaf into their current product ranges whereas developers are able to specify PAS 24 compliant doorsets, in both standard and bespoke sizes, and in a wide range of alternative finishes. Architects and specifiers now have the option to request the new JB Kind fire resistant PAS 24 doorsets, as well as its matching internal doorset counterparts.

Stylish PAS 24 compliant entrance doorsets also incorporate acoustic and smoke standards

Suitable for apartment and flat entrances, and compatible with a range of door designs and styles, developers, architects and specifiers can choose from a selection of veneered, painted and primed finishes, available as plain flush or with a number of grooved design options, all with the knowledge that whichever they choose, the security doorsets meet the stringent PAS 24 criteria.

The four core criteria to achieve a PAS 24 accreditation

The new fire resistant security doorsets have to meet four core standards in order to achieve PAS 24 accreditation.

1) PAS 24: 2016 Enhanced Security performance test for doorsets
2) Fire test to EN 1634 part 1
3) Acoustic test to BS EN ISO 10140
4) Smoke control test to BS EN 1634 part 3

Simon Johnson, JB Kind Sales Director, comments: “The new fully compliant PAS 24 door leaf we’ve created will enable door manufacturers to use it within their doorsets, developers to offer stylish flat and/or apartment building PAS 24 entrance doorsets and architects and specifiers to request our doors as part of their planning and design processes.

“All our PAS 24 fire doors are third party Certifire approved by Warringtonfire, with a fire rating of 30 minutes, EI30, and as an additional benefit, the PAS 24 doorsets have also been successfully tested for both acoustic and smoke control.

“The PAS 24 security fire doorsets are supplied fully assembled, pre-hung, complete with high quality fully-tested ironmongery, and are available in standard and bespoke sizes. We can also provide matching internal doorsets if a developer would like a specific style theme throughout their building.”
