Booth Launches New .Coreless ‘Crompton’ Fire Door

Booth launches industry-first fire door manufactured without flammable materials


Booth Industries, a leading manufacturer of high performance, bespoke and engineered doorsets, has today launched industry-first firedoor sets to be made without the use of potentially flammable materials.


The Crompton 240 is manufactured with a stiffened-steel core, rather than using cardboard honeycomb and polyurethane glue, both of which can ignite and allow the spread of fire.


In tests, it consistently delivered four hours of proven fire integrity, making it the perfect choice for settings where safety is paramount such as airports, railway stations, nuclear-licensed sites, hospitals and data centres, to name a few.


Mike Jenkinson, managing director of Bolton-based Booth Industries, said: “We’re excited to bring this new door to the market, which is the result of significant investment in research and development over the last 12 months and addresses a critical safety concern identified during rigorous testing.


“Traditional steel doors with cardboard honeycomb cores have been widely used across the industry, but our investigations revealed a potential fire hazard associated with this design. As a company known for market-leading products, we took decisive action to prioritise safety and develop a superior solution.


“The Booth name is synonymous with high-performance, high-integrity protection systems and it is thanks to the skill of our team that we are now able to launch the Crompton 240 – providing total reassurance that our doors will withstand the most challenging conditions, protecting people and infrastructure should the worst occur.”


Fully recyclable, the Crompton 240 was tested to BSEN 1634-1 in 2023 and is sold under Cerfifire Certificate CF 10183. During five separate tests, the doorset demonstrated no integrity failures, beyond 240 minutes. The door and frame are constructed from high quality 1.5mm steel, providing real durability and integrity while the Zintec or 316 Stainless Steel options enhance corrosion resistance and longevity. E240-certified glazing can also be included, providing useful visibility while maintaining fire integrity.
