Fire Doors for Commercial Applications, in Flintshire, Chester, Wrexham, Wirral, and North Wales
Many commercial buildings will require fire doors to ensure the safety of occupants, block the spread of flames and smoke which in-turn will minimise the overall damage to a building.
Fire doors in commercial buildings will automatically close once a fire has been detected in the building, making them a vital aspect of a building’s fire resistance and protection system.
Specialised agencies will carry out a series of fire-resistance tests on fire doors for commercial buildings which they will need to pass. They will then be classified according to their fire protection rating. This rating is measured in hours; .5, .75, 1, 1.5 and 3 hours are all common examples of classifications.
The measurement found illustrates the amount of time the barrier can stand up to exposure from heat and flames. The time a door can resist fire can vary depending on local building codes and location within the building, such as vicinity to an exit or the fire rating of nearby walls.
UPGRADING OF ENTRANCE AND INTERNAL DOORS, IN FLINTSHIRE, CHESTER, WREXHAM, WIRRAL, AND NORTH WALES
You may or may not be aware that fire doors are graded. For example, an FD30 fire door will provide protection for 30 minutes, while an FD60 fire door provides protection for 60 minutes. The better the grading, the better the fire door will protect you and your building.
If you would like your fire doors to offer greater protection in the event of fire, we can work with you to achieve this, sourcing the correct fire doors and components, and then installing them professionally to industry standards.
If you’re unsure as to whether your fire doors meet the required standards and therefore don’t know if they need replacing, please contact us. We will then be able to provide you with the advice you need.
