James Latham recently supplied performance timber fire door specialist Ahmarra Door Solutions with a number of Moralt FireSound 44dB and Halspan FD30 and FD60 Optima door cores, which have been used in the £7m extension to Fareham Innovation Centre.
Ahmarra manufactured over 100 bespoke laminate-faced fire doors to the customers’ specific requirements including specialist acoustic doors.
All doors were supplied and installed under the Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacturer and Fire Door Installer Schemes, which ensures a fully compliant and third-party certified product.
James Latham Door Champion, David Green, who is based at the company’s Fareham depot, commented, “We are delighted to have worked with Ahmarra on this specification. This is a really impressive project and one which demanded the highest quality and most technically superior products to be delivered and installed both on time and on budget.
“The Moralt FireSound 44mm door blank has been extensively tested in the UK and boasts an acoustic value of dB40 and a fire rating of FD30, making it one of the ‘best-in-class’ performance door blank products available on the market.
“Made from 3-layer particle board designed specifically for the fabrication of interior solid core doors, Halspan Optima offers both 30 and 60-minute fire-rating and is one of our most popular door cores and is regularly specified in the education, healthcare, hospitality, commercial, residential, retail and government sectors.”
The project has been developed and funded by Fareham Borough Council and supported by £2m funding from Solent Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) from HM Government’s Local Growth Fund.
