The Fire Door Alliance is operated and managed by the British Woodworking Federation (BWF). It was established by leading manufacturers to bring the membership management, lobbying and promotion skills of the BWF to support promotion of third-party certification. Membership is open only to companies holding 3rd Party Certification under either the BWF Certifire or Q-Mark schemes.
The Fire Door Alliance extends the work of the BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door and Doorset Scheme that was established in 1997 by a group of Prime Fire Door Manufacturers aiming to increase the standard of fire doors across the supply chain. The BWF Fire Door Alliance has now expanded to include not just the market leaders in fire door manufacturing, but also in converting fire doors, ironmongery, intumescent seals and glazing systems, and, more recently, merchants and installers.
