Everything You Need To Know About Hinged Fire Doors


Hinged fire doors are often used in a variety of settings, including factories, commercial establishments, and residential structures, with the primary objective of preventing the spread of fire.


Why do hinges need to be fireproof?

The core of fire-rated doors is fire-rated hardware. The hinge is a crucial component of the door suspension mechanism, as it ensures the normal opening and closing of the door. But, are hinges for fire protection necessary?


Ordinary hinges are destroyed and deformed in a fire, making it difficult for firefighters to disassemble the hinges and remove the deformed door. The fireproof hinge can keep the door functional for a certain amount of time and accelerate firefighting. Fire door hinges are manufactured in accordance with stringent standards and have exceptional performance in both normal use and severe fire conditions. They are available in a variety of finishes and come with guarantees of long-lasting quality.



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.
