A comprehensive system for upgrading flat panelled doors to fire-rated doors. Consists of intumescent cloth with 1mm thick fireproof card face and contact adhesive, designed to be use in conjunction with Product 42 intumescent paint for timber.


– Intumescent cloth can be applied to existing panelled doors in order to upgrade them to 30 minute fire doors- Intumescent cloth can also be used between 6mm plywood panels if new doors are being made, giving 30 minutes of fire protection
– Used in conjunction with Product 42, this system can upgrade new or old standard doors to give them a 60-minute fire rating
– Fireproof card face is available in standard white, faced with Gaboon or birch ply, or in a range of veneers – see Order References for our full range of finishes

Application Instructions

Because our upgrade kits must be applied in a specific way in order to achieve the specified fire ratings, we advise using the downloads available on the right-hand side of the page. Here, in-depth Application Instructions for the range can be found, arranged by individual coating, primer or top coat. The Technical Overviews summarise the recommended usage of the coatings, including spreading rate and drying times. COSHH data is also available to download.
Please contact our technical team for any further enquiries relating to the application or specification of this product.
