Fire doors are part of a building’s passive fire protection system and are fundamental to fire strategies for buildings.
They provide critical protection within a building, such as escape routes (stairs and corridors) and separate different fire hazards in a building.
Effective fire doors ensure rooms are compartmented, to help keep fire, and possibly smoke, in the area in which it starts, to protect occupants and contents of other compartments and to protect escape routes.
A fire door consists of components that includes the door leaf, frame, seals and essential door hardware, which are referred to in the door’s fire test evidence. This is called a fire door assembly and use of the wrong components may have a significant impact on the overall performance of the fire door.
A final escape door is the door used in the event of an emergency, to exit the building and to reach a place of safety. It must operate correctly and be fitted with the correct hardware. Correct signage is also a mandatory requirement for fire doors and escape doors.
Just like fire extinguishers and alarms, fire doors and final escape doors need periodic inspection and maintenance to ensure that they will perform as intended in a fire situation.
