5 Things You Need To Know About Fire Doors

Every individual has encountered at least one fire door in the course of their daily existence. Whether in a shopping mall, workplace, place of employment, or an airport. However, to what extent do we truly understand fire doors? Why do they contribute so significantly to life-saving efforts during fire emergencies?

What Are Fire Doors?

Fire doors are constructed from materials that have been subjected to extensive testing to withstand the various elements that typically aid in starting or spreading fire. The purpose of these doors, which are of a specialized nature, is not to completely halt the fire's progression; rather, they serve to obstruct its path and allow for the safe evacuation of occupants while also creating an opportunity for firefighters to arrive and assist.

What Makes Fire Doors Important?

Because they are an excellent source of compartmentalising a structure, they aid in confining fire or smoke inside the region of impact while providing safe access to everyone who is there at the moment. Therefore, they are a critical component of an effective passive fire protection strategy, which holds the capacity to safeguard lives in the event of any fire-related catastrophe.

We specialise in the protection of buildings from fire by the insulation of structural members, walls and tanks against direct attack from flames by maintaining load-bearing members and tank-shells below the critical point at which failure or weakening is likely to occur.
