The company specialise in the up-grading of traditional doors to fire rated doors using envirograf products. This is a water-based clear or white intumescent coating kit for upgrading raised-and-fielded doors to fire door status. Each kit contains ½ litre of primer, 1½ litres of intumescent coating, and ½ litre of top coat – enough to cover an area of 6m² (depending on the size of the door, this may be enough material to cover three to four sides of single doors). Kits can be coloured to BS or RAL colours.

Only the risk side needs to be coated on room doors and both sides on doors leading onto corridors or at the top of stairs. There is no need to remove any existing paints, varnish, or gold leaf.
