Why Fire Doors?
Modern building regulations are very strict on the use of fire doors in certain instances. It may be that your architect has stipulated a fire door in certain areas. It is always good practice to separate a room with a source of fire such as a stove, fireplace, oven or hob from other areas of the house with fire doors. In this way, if an accident should occur, the fire door can provide your family with vital extra time to make their escape. Our fire doors are FD30 rated to give thirty minutes of time before they will burn through.
What is their Purpose?
Fire doors create a passive fire safety system, protecting both domestic and commercial buildings from the spread of fire by confining it to a specific area for a longer period of time. This allows people within the building enough time to escape via alternative routes which might otherwise be cut off by fire.
They are a legal requirement for particular buildings, including for flats and commercial properties, but the prime purpose for fire doors is to save lives and halt the progress of a destructive fire.
