Onyx approached Profab to look at the existing doors onsite, the project is a busy premium student accommodation block with all the facilities including Gym’s, Laundry rooms and large open social spaces. The existing steel doors had been installed around 10 years ago when the building was first built. Due to there location most of the doors had been severely damaged due to bins and miss use. The client required the doors to have full 3rd Party certification and Profab’s Certifire certificated steel doors were perfect for their requirements. With Onyx being a 3rd party approved and assessed fire door installation company these 2 certifications combined offered the client a fully certificated product.
The project originally consisted of replacing 18 damaged doorsets. Once the first batch were installed the client decided to replace all the doors to the basement area with Profab Steel doors. The second phase involved a further 23 doorsets. Each phase was manufactured and delivered within a 4-week period which included bespoke aluminium chequer place protection, fire rated louvre panels, non standard powder coat colour and long slot style apertures.
