Steel Fire Doors

Steel fire doors are used for fire compartmentation in more abrasive environments and secure areas where a higher fire rating is required. They adhere to FD240 requirements, meaning they offer up to 4 hours of guaranteed fire resistance, which is longer than wooden fire doors are able to withstand.

You may want to opt for a steel fire rated door if it also needs to act as a security door in a high-risk building, such as commercial premises.

Steel Fire Door Suppliers

As steel fire door suppliers, we work with you on a bespoke solution for your passive fire protection needs. Any metal fire door and frame provided by us is fully compliant with the relevant fire door regulations required by UK law. Ultimately, steel doors are a fundamental part of the compartmentation system and are designed to save lives and protect property.

Depending on the location of the door, you may need a steel fire rated door or a steel fire exit door. While both are integral to the evacuation route, fire exit doors are the last part of the chain leading to the exterior of the building, so they face different regulations to fire rated doors.

Our role is to identify areas where steel fire doors are required and ensure your building remains safe and compliant with all necessary legislation. Contact us today for tailored advice.

Steel Fire Door Installation

Installing steel fire doors is incredibly precise and requires a fully competent person to ensure it’s done correctly. Unlike wooden fire doors, steel doors don’t have any give, making it much harder to get the door set fitted accurately and in accordance with the necessary regulations.

While steel doors offer enhanced protection for up to 4 hours, the drawback is these doors are much harder to remediate if the building shifts or they suffer damage. Steel fire doors are always sold as a complete door set, so the initial outgoing and cost of replacement doors is generally higher than their wooden counterparts.

When you choose Adaston for your steel fire door installation, you choose to work with a third party accredited contractor. In short, we’re certified to work to the highest standards, ensuring your steel fire doors are correctly fitted to offer your building and its occupants the maximum protection.

With our consultancy services, we also offer bespoke advice on existing steel fire doors, including surveys and ongoing maintenance. Speak to a member of the Adaston team today to discuss your steel fire door requirements.
