WHAT IS A FIRE DOOR?

A fire door is a specialized barrier designed to resist the spread of fire and smoke within a building. It functions by compartmentalizing areas, aiding in the safe evacuation of occupants and protecting property.

WHY ARE FIRE DOORS IMPORTANT?

Fire doors are crucial for fire safety in buildings, as they act as passive fire protection measures, containing fire and smoke, preventing their spread, and allowing occupants to evacuate safely. These doors are engineered with fire-resistant materials, such as steel or gypsum, and are equipped with intumescent seals that expand when exposed to heat, effectively sealing off openings and delaying the spread of fire. Compliance with fire door regulations ensures buildings meet stringent safety standards and reduces the risk of property damage, injuries, and loss of life in the event of a fire.

 

WHY MUST MY FIRE DOOR BE CORRECTLY INSTALLED AND WELL MAINTAINED?

Having a fire door in good repair and well-maintained is crucial for fire safety compliance, ensuring proper compartmentation, preventing fire spread, maintaining structural integrity, enhancing occupant safety, meeting regulatory standards, and minimizing property damage in the event of a fire.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY FIRE DOOR INSPECTED?

In order for fire doors to perform effectively in the event of a fire, regular inspections should be undertaken to ensure their structural integrity and functionality. Six-monthly inspections are recommended by BS 9999 in addition to the monthly inspection checks outlined within the government guidance documentation.
