Fire doors have become a must have item for many households. Fire doors are always a good idea in any household and many people consider that all houses should have fire doors in vulnerable areas such as kitchens, or rooms that have an open fire or electrical equipment (the Daily Express recently stated that 7 fires a day are caused by white goods alone) and houses that have attached garages must always have a fire door between the garage and the home.
If you decide to install fire doors then you should also consider the door frame as that to will need to be resistant to fire and you will also need to install intumescent seals in the frames; these stop the deadly smoke passing through the gaps between the door and the frame.
Having fire doors will certainly give you peace of mind and hopefully you will never need to find out how effective they really are.
Fire doors come in various styles and models these days and can generally be matched with existing doors.
On line Door Store’s internal solid wood fire doors all carry a British standard fire certificate and come with either a FD30 Rating (30 minutes fire resistance) or FD60 Rating (60 minutes fire resistance) and can be offered in glazed styles and various finish options.
