A PORTSMOUTH firm has won a £400,000 contract to supply specialist doors for Gatwick Airport’s north terminal.

Ahmarra Door Installations, which is based in Fitzherbert Road, Farlington, will supply the airport’s main contractor, Carillion, with the fire-resistant doors.

The firm has been supplying airports across the country with safety doors for the past six years.

Since 2006, Ahmarra Door Installations have supplied & fitted over 3,000 fire-rated doorsets across all BAA and GAL operations, after meeting the requirements for the Framework Agreement. They have recently secured a new order to supply doorsets for Pier 5 at Gatwick North Terminal, through main contractor Carillion Construction Ltd.

Ahmarra specialise in working with clients to develop fire-resistant doorset standards throughout their facilities. Significant client cost savings can be made by eliminating the need to re-define doorsets & ironmongery for each new project. This expertise can be extended to similar specifications such as rail stations, offices and commercial properties.

Meeting GAL specifications, Ahmarra’s range of high performance, FSC timber doorsets with laminate facings have been selected for this project.

Ahmarra is one of the few specialist fire doorset manufacturers who can also offer an installation service with the ability to certify every aspect of the performance of a doorset. They are members of the BM TRADA Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacturer Scheme, one of the industry’s leading third party schemes as well as being members of the BM TRADA Fire Door Registered Installer Scheme.

Ahmarra Door Installations is part of the Ahmarra group of companies. One of the UK’s leading architectural doorset manufacturers and installers across all sectors including airport, hotel, health, education, heritage, commercial and leisure.
