Generally speaking, when any new build or significant alteration to a property now takes place the need for fire doors is imperative.
Many of our different internal door designs are available as a fire door in a multitude of different real wood veneers - we also stock many different glazed fire doors.
A fire door is a door with a fire-resistance rating which is tested, and certificated, to withstand fires for certain measurements of time, most commonly 30 minutes but in some cases up to 1 hour.
A fire door is designed to be used as part of a passive fire protection method in order to restrict the rapid spread of fire throughout a building, giving occupants more time to safely evacuate the building.
When a fire door is used in conjunction with intumescent strip (a must to meet current building regs) you not only allow yourself greater time to evacuate the building as the fire door is withstanding the flames, the intumescent strip swells and thus restricting the release of harmful toxic gases from an area of the building.
