Fitting fire-resistant doors in your home, office or school must surely be a no-brainer, they will save lives and property in the event of a fire. In fact UK building regulations demand that fire doors are fitted in strategic positions, for example if a 2 storey house has a door leading from an integral garage into the house it must be a fire door and new build or renovated properties with 3 storeys or more, including loft conversions, must have FD30 fire doors to every habitable room off the stairwell. However, wherever a fire could start, you should consider fitting a fire door. These would include doors leading from: a kitchen; doors from a lounge with a fireplace or TV; or doors on any room with electrical equipment or flammable items.
You shouldn’t rely purely on active fire protection, such as smoke alarms or fire extinguishers in your property. Passive protection offered by a correctly fitted fire door will always be there when needed.
Because of the very plain fire doors that you find in most offices, schools, hotels and other public places they have earned a reputation for being heavy and plain ugly. Modern fire doors will change that perception. Available with and without glass, contemporary fire doors can provide peace of mind wherever they are fitted.
Fire doors slow the spread of fire through a property, giving the occupants more time to safely escape whilst also giving time for the emergency services to reach the blaze thus limiting potential damage to the property and injury to its inhabitants.
