The Certifire Scheme is an independent third party scheme for the certification of fire protection products, and for door hinges it builds upon the test requirements of BS EN 1935.
It is devised and operated by Warrington Certification Ltd. and bona fide companies who manufacture/modify/supply fire protection products can apply for certification. Their products must satisfy specific technical requirements (identified in Technical Schedules) which are based on British, European or other relevant national or international standards.
Surveillance visits are conducted for audit testing to ensure consistency and conformity, and all certification is reviewed on a 5 year basis.
Nico have a number of door hinges which are Certifire approved and these are detailed on the relevant product pages. This is a voluntary scheme.
