A fire door is a vital safety device engineered to save lives and property. Fire doors are part of a building’s PASSIVE fire protection system, an essential requirement for ALL public buildings, offices and factories. They are also a requirement in certain domestic situations, such as in flats, where a door leads into an integral garage, in any dwelling where there is a second floor ‘habitable’ room, such as houses with loft conversions or a ‘room in the roof’.
All rooms in any of these situations are separated from other rooms, or compartmented, in order to:
- keep any fire in the compartment in which it starts
- protect the occupants (and contents) of other compartments
- provide a safe, protected route to allow the occupants to escape.
The walls, ceilings, entrances and exits are therefore designed to resist the fire for a specified period of time.
The simple purpose of a fire door in every day use is just as any other door. However, since a breakout of fire is never predictable, the fire door, unlike any other door, must then perform its prime purpose –to protect lives and offer protection to the remainder of the building and to other buildings.
Our team of fire protection specialists can review and install certified fire doors around your premises where they are required. You can give us a call today on 01273 634894, to discuss the requirements.

Third party certification is the only way to ensure that Fire Doors are manufactured consistently to protect lives and save property. Cutting corners can cost lives.
Installer Certification Schemes – designed to ensure that certificated and tested products are installed within the approved field of application by skilled and competent operatives thus giving confidence to specifiers, users, occupiers, owners and enforcement bodies
