Decherd’s Henley Supply has achieved a new manufacturing milestone with its ability to manufacture doors that are professionally certified as fire doors.
In addition to manufacturing doors that are tailored to meet contractor and customers’ needs, the new fire-door certification program offers Henley Supply the ability to manufacture custom fire doors that are rated to withstand and prevent the spread of fires within structures.
The first fire door was constructed recently inside Henley Supply’s spacious Exterior Door Shop in Decherd.
The fire-door certification program requires a strict, government-supervised inspection and compliance process.
The end result allows the Decherd-based company access to new customers within the construction and contractor markets, including homes, buildings and any markets that may require the installation of code-complaint fire doors.
Certified and inspected every six months by Intertek, which is a globally-respected testing and certification company, Henley’s new fire doors bear Intertek’s “Warnock Hersey Mark” showcased on each locally-manufactured fire door.
These important designations reflect Henley Supply’s strict adherence to manufacturing doors that are compliant to building fire codes and regulations.
These labels assure customers that each fire door is rated to potentially save lives and limit property damage from fires.
Started in 1957 by Claude and Joyce Henley and now owned and operated by Franklin County native Sam Henley, Henley Supply employs more than 100 people and continues to grow and expand.
Regarding Henley Supply’s new manufacturing milestone and its first locally-manufactured certified fire door, Sam Henley was quick to thank his customers and the employees who take pride in their work.
“The business is a longtime supporter of the city of Decherd, the county, and the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce, and believes in supporting the community as well,” Henley said. “I want to thank all of the employees and also want to thank David Shetters, who serves as production manager with 30 years of service to the people of Franklin County and beyond.”
