Hi Thanks for looking

Looking to install a number of pocket doors both fire rated.

My question... i have quite a large opening, and will be using a double door system fd30 system rated.
total opening size: 2.0m width height 2.6
Each door :1m wide

The fire rated kits do they come with doors, or would i need to get a carpenter to make one up. is it fairly easy to make up a fire door of that size, as i suspect it wont be off the shelf product due to the unusual height and width.

Which manufacturer do you guys recommend for the rails

Thanks Again

if you can pay any kind or sizeof door can be knocked upbut lots of places sell fd30 systems in all kinds of arrangements.pocket doors in openings or inside partitions can be tricky,best get a joiner in who will advise an do the work

Technically a carpenter can no longer "knock up' a fire door. Those days are hone. You'll need to buy in from a FIRAS or CERTFIRE accredited manufacturer

OK, I'm an "old school" chippie, so please don't ask me to do a bodge job - I didn't bring my horse today and in any case you don't seem to have a hitching rail!
