27 door manufacturers win place on £130m public sector framework


27 door manufacturers have secured places on a new £130m framework to supply communal and entrance doors to the public sector

The Communal Doors, Entrance Doors and Associated Products (C8) framework from LHC allows local authorities, social landlords and other public bodies to source preapproved specialist suppliers. The door manufacturers will supply and fit door sets and associated door hardware and access control systems such as vandal-resistant duplex voice door intercoms.

The framework is worth up to £100m in England, £20m in Scotland and £10m in Wales. It covers a range of buildings including multi-occupancy residential, education, local government, police, and fire authority buildings.

‘Drive high standards in public buildings’

Dean Fazackerley, head of technical procurement at LHC, said: “This framework has been designed to provide a comprehensive and flexible option for contracting authorities who may need to cover a wide range of projects with different door requirements.

“We’ve set very specific requirements to cover safety and security to drive high standards in public buildings for both fire safety and security.

“Bi-directional fire testing of fire doors was a mandatory requirement for suppliers, with all fire doorsets that are installed holding certification as a completed assembly.

“Enhanced security testing to PAS24:2016 or equivalent were also an essential for standard composite and timber doors that will be supplied via the framework.”

The framework is split into six lots covering composite and timber doors, both fire and non-fire rated, communal entrance and exit doors in steel, aluminium and timber, and access control.

The full list of appointed door manufacturers is:

  • Anglian Windows Ltd T/A Anglian Building Products
