A problem within a business has been turned into a solution and further developed into a new business by shop fit out company, B Batch Group. The Hull-based company has set up Simply Fire Doors in response to their own demand for fire doors on-site and also that of the wider construction industry.

Struggling to source fire doors to meet short deadlines, the business now supplies bespoke fire doors with and without glazing, available in paint grade, or veneer with real wood laminates, in a variety of colours, patterns and can also be made as acoustic doors for sound proofing. Standardised options can be turned around within 24 hours’ notice.

Leon McQuade is the Commercial Director at B Batch Group. He says: “As a firm of shop fitters we had an issue with the timely delivery of fire doors to site and their delay could hold-up the completion of our projects. As a business, B Batch Group supplies and manufactures interiors for the retail, commercial and industrial sectors and with a workshop of highly skilled carpenters and joiners, we found a solution in-house, which has helped us to develop our business in other areas. It also enables us to complete our own projects and supply other firms with Simply Fire Doors.

“Manufacturing the fire doors in-house means that we can order as and when we require them and can also guarantee delivery to our sites, which are located all around the UK.

“This is a win-win situation. We haven’t had to invest in extra equipment as we already have everything we need in our Hull workshop. Plus we have a new revenue stream with a great reputation for delivering on-time and within budget.”

Simply Fire Doors provides door sets and frames to the shop fitting and construction industry. FD30 and FD60 doors are flame resistant for 30 minutes and 60 minutes respectively and approved to the BM Trada Q Mark Certification. All doors are tailor-made to specifically made to meet the needs of clients UK-wide.
