Fire doors play an essential role in the overall fire safety within a building and are required in most structures throughout the UK. They must be the correct specification, installed to the required standard and continuously maintained to ensure the ongoing safety of all occupants in the building.

Our team are fully qualified installers, giving you peace of mind that your internal fire doors will be fully compliant with legal requirements.


Why are Internal Fire Doors so Important?

Internal fire doors are important because they can keep fire and smoke in a particular building area for a prolonged period, stopping the fire from spreading to other areas.

This provides a necessary amount of time for workers within the building to get out, saving them from potential injury or even death. Fire doors are a vital component of any building’s fire protection systems and must be installed in all corporate buildings.

We help protect Greater London’s businesses from fire damage, potentially saving countless lives in the process.


How Long Can Fire Doors Last?

Fire doors and frames are tested to hold fire at bay for 30 minutes or 60 minutes. Their ability to withstand large fires largely depends on properly installing the appropriate seals and fire-rated hardware. This includes fire door closers to ensure they are properly sealed and prepared to withstand significant fire damage.

It is important to check fire doors regularly and make sure maintenance is kept up to ensure they will be able to protect you from fire, should they be needed. Some doors can be fire-rated to last more than 60 minutes, but this rating may rarely be required in a standard building.


Choosing the Right Internal Fire Door

When it comes to fire doors, they are necessary in almost all UK buildings by law (Fire Safety Order, 2005). There is further fire door guidance in the building regulations – in UK Approved Document B (2006) – that covers where fire doors should be fitted and what fire door’s level of fire resistance should have.

When choosing the right fire door for your building, you should consider several factors, including the material and thickness of the door. These factors are the level of maintenance required, the durability and warranty of the door, and whether your building has chemicals or materials that can spread fire fast.


Installation of Internal Fire Doors

How fire doors are installed is just as important as the product specification. Poorly installed fire doors will not provide adequate protection for occupants of the building. Fire door installation should only be carried out by someone who is competent, has been specifically trained to install fire doors and fully understands the responsibilities of getting it right.

Our team are experts at installing fire doors so you can be confident that all fire doors are installed in accordance with fire door manufacturers’ instructions to ensure they will perform as required and intended in a fire situation.


Maintenance of Internal Fire Doors

In most buildings, internal fire doors are used by the building’s occupants like any other doors so are subject to everyday wear and tear. This can result in the fire door not being as effective as it should be and possibly not being able to last half an hour in the unfortunate event of a fire.

As such, fire door needs to be regularly checked and maintained to ensure that they’re still functioning properly and can perform as needed. This is where the Kiasu Workforce team can help.
