An Introduction to Fire Door Installation

Fire door installation is a crucial aspect of building safety, serving to contain the spread of flames and smoke in the event of a fire. Fire doors preserve escape routes, protect the building, and ensure compliance with building safety regulations. These specially designed doors, constructed with fire-resistant materials, compartmentalise buildings to provide occupants with essential time to evacuate and protect the firefighters.

Fire doors are strategically installed around the building to slow or stop the spread of fire. They are a key to minimising property damage and saving lives. For this reason, fire door fitting forms a vital part of passive fire protection which is mandatory in buildings in England, as per the UK Fire Safety Regulations

This includes buildings such as:

  • Hospitals
  • Care homes
  • Schools, universities and student accommodation
  • Commercial and public use buildings
  • Residential buildings of multiple occupation
