Fire Door & Accessories

Fire doors have a few vital safety features and really can be the difference between life and death.

If you own a commercial or industrial property, there are strict regulations and guidelines to follow, ensuring the doors can withstand certain heats. Fire doors can also have massive advantages for saving properties.

A fire door is a door with a fire-resistance rating (sometimes referred to as a fire protection rating for closures) used as part of a passive fire protection system to reduce the spread of fire and smoke between separate compartments of a structure.

Before Installing Your Fire Doors You Should:

  • Ensure that the individual or company you have hired to install the doors is fully licensed and qualified to carry out the fire safety installation and certification

  • Make sure that your fire doors are being installed in fire walls and that the type of door chosen will preserve the fire rating of that same wall

  • Double-check that all doors, door frames and hardware is on par with the tested/approved prototype for that door and its accessories

  • Confirm with your builder or installer that all your fire doors will be installed in accordance with the tested/approved construction and installation requirements for that door

Certified fire doors

It’s important to know if your doors are fire rated or not, particularly if you’re thinking of making any modifications. Decorating or modifying certain fire doors in any way, can seriously impact their effectiveness and ability to perform well in the event of a fire.

Timber Fire Doors

Timber fire doors are typically given an FD rating which is usually the number of minutes indicating their integrity

Glass fire doors

It can be hard to believe that glass is an effective material used in fire protection, but thanks to advanced fire technology, it’s just as good as any.
