When it comes to fire safety, proper fire door installation is crucial. As a part of the overall fire safety plan, fire doors are a frontline defence against the spread of fire in a building. Unfortunately, our experience shows that more than 80% of fire doors installed by even experienced builders or carpenters fail due to improper installation.
A minor oversight during the installation process can lead to costly replacements, compromised safety, and in extreme cases, a failing of the door during a fire. This is primarily due to a lack of understanding of how each component of a fire door system works in unison to halt the spread of fire and smoke.
It’s not enough for the door itself to be fire-resistant; every element of the fire door system, from the hinges and door frame to the seals and door hardware, must be correctly installed and compatible. Even a slight mistake in installation can compromise the fire-resistance integrity of the entire system, endangering lives and property.
This is why professional fire door installation is not just recommended – it’s a legal necessity under Article 17 of the Fire Safety Order. Incorporating professional fire door installation into your fire safety plan not only ensures that you’re operating within legal boundaries, but it also dramatically enhances the safety of your premises.
