What is the BWF Fire Door Alliance?

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.

Promoting the Woodworking Industry

  • The website offers information about the BWF and the woodworking industry. It includes searchable databases of members and their products, additional services, certifications they hold and any memberships of our additional schemes
  • Comprehensive wider business advice is available in the form of helplines, guides and publications, ensuring that members are kept up-to-date with all the latest information and regulations
  • The BWF Technical Helpline offers all members immediate expert advice. The Federation also provides a Technical Consultancy Service for more complex problems, including site inspections, detailed reports and expert witness statements
  • An extensive programme of PR, digital marketing, publicity and advertising in national, local and trade press publicises the BWF’s work and raises customer awareness of members’ products and services.
A Voice for the Industry

The BWF represents its members’ views to Government, the construction industry, the wider public, and increasingly, to the international community. We also provide members with an influential voice in the development of woodworking and joinery product standards in Britain and Europe.
