A fire door is one of the most important and often overlooked, fire safety products in your building. The key to passive fire protection is to contain the fire to a particular compartment or room, giving occupants enough time to escape and the fire service enough time to enter the building and tackle the fire.
Fire doors are a fundamental part of this, designed to prevent the fire or smoke from spreading. However due the nature of fire doors being used in a functional way on a regular basis means they are at greater risk of damage and abuse, seriously compromising the fire protection in your building.
