New venture on fire with soaring demand

A new fire door business, Firedoors and Frames, has been launched by the team behind Aztec Interiors with a £500,000 investment.

The Liverpool manufacturing business specialises in the conversion of fire doors, also supplying leading fire door brands, Vicaima and Falcon, to main contractors and joinery contractors across the North West, for residential developments and schools.

The enterprise has kick started business employing a skilled team of 10 and has clear ambitions to become the regions market leader in this niche area of the building products industry. The Bootle-based industrial unit has been carefully converted, creating a 4000 sq. ft joiners’ shop and offices.


The new venture is led by industry experts, Iain Peacock and John Doyle, who together have secured the hard won Certifire certification by Warrington Fire, ensuring compliance for the conversion of fire doors and supply of fire door sets.

Iain Peacock, Director at Firedoors and Frames explained: “In recent years, there has been a sea change in the approach to fire strategy. We saw an opportunity to create a company at the forefront of passive fire protection. The barrier to entry to this field of work is necessarily very high, yet the need for certified fire doors conversion so great. We are proud to have achieved the requirements not only needed to supply fire door sets but to also make bespoke alterations.

“The business is very much in its infancy but we have aspirations to grow rapidly as we have taken our time to put into place the right infrastructure, recruiting the right people and developing the best processes, from which we can build. We believe there is huge scope for this company and are excited by its potential.”

John Doyle, Director at Firedoors and Frames added: “This area of work will only continue to grow as legislation around fire strategy is further implemented and policed. I am proud to be part of this company and be a part of the push for higher fire safety standards. We are grateful for the backing of our supply chain and the trust afforded us by our client base.”
