Frequently asked Questions

No matter what your building is used for – from residential flats to commercial office space – your fire doors must be installed by a competent professional. This is because there are certain guidelines that need to be adhered to, including BS 8214 which covers their installation. Improper installation can put your property and the lives of anyone within at risk. This is because smoke and fire could spread if a proper, adequate seal isn’t created when the doors are closed.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires that only a competent person should install your fire doors, which is where our expert team of fire door technicians at Fire Industry Specialists Ltd can help.

We offer fire door installation across the country.

Fire doors should never be propped open by boxes or wedged open with other items. Since they need to be fully closed in order to do their job in the event of a fire, you can only legally hold them open if you have automatic closers fitted.

With automatic closers, you can be sure that the door will be released to swing closed by itself if your fire alarm is triggered.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that the responsible person for a building must take steps to reduce the risk of fire spreading — something fire doors are crucial for. The RRO covers existing buildings, but the provision of fire doors for new buildings is covered by Building Regulations Approved Document B.

Fire risk assessments are also a crucial legal requirement. This in-depth review of fire safety within your building will take into account your fire doors — including where they should be positioned, the required fire rating and their use.

Fire doors save lives by holding back fire and smoke. This forms a crucial part of fire safety in any building because they are designed, manufactured and tested to ensure they can prevent fire and smoke from easily spreading through the premises.

As part of your passive fire protection strategy, fire doors ensure that compartmentalisation is achieved. As a result, this gives anyone in the building a safe route out, with enough time to evacuate, saving lives and preventing injuries. An additional benefit is that fire and rescue services are given more time to attend the fire and extinguish it before it can spread further.

Fire doors offer different resistance levels, which come mainly from the solid core they’re built with, but you must ensure you have the right resistance level to suit the size and function of your building. FD30, FD60, FD90 and FD120 are all types of fire doors, with the number relating to how many minutes of resistance the door gives at a minimum
