Fire doors are designed to contain a fire to a single compartment of a building, therefore reducing the risk to those in other parts of the building. Fire Doors are recognised by the Government as a vital element of a buildings passive fire protection and are the subject of a Government Advice Note issued in July 2018.
It is critical that all fire doors are of good quality, have fire rated hinges and are fitted with intumescent seals designed to expand in heat and seal the door. All fire doors should be fitted by qualified engineers and be inspected on a regular basis.
Article 17 of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, makes it a legal requirement to ensure the fire resisting doors and escape doors are correctly installed and adequately maintained in order for them to be fit for purpose.
