Expert Fire Door Installation and Fitting Services

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.

Poorly fitted fire doors KILL!

We see it day in day out. Fire doors that have been either poorly installed or have not been maintained. A fire resisting door’s main purpose is to contain a fire and stop the spread of fire, protecting occupants from deadly smoke and fire. A fire resisting door is made up of a number of products including:

  • Fire resisting door
  • 3x fire rated hinges
  • Intumescent cold smoke and fire seals,
  • Fire rated handles and furnishings
  • Overhead positive self closing device
  • Fire rated door surround.

All of these items, if fitted properly, work together to make up a Fire resisting doors set.
