THE IMPORTANCE OF INSTALLING FIRE RATED DOORS
When it comes to the safety and security of your property, few elements are as critical as fire-rated doors. These specialised doors are purpose-built to withstand the intense heat and destructive force of fires, and they play a pivotal role in ensuring the safety of occupants and the preservation of property. At London Fire Solutions, we understand the vital importance of fire-rated doors and are here to emphasise why they are an essential component of any building's fire safety strategy.
Slowing the Spread of Fires:
Fire-rated doors act as effective barriers, slowing down the rapid spread of fires within a building. In the event of a fire, these doors are designed to resist flames and heat, helping to confine the fire to its point of origin. This compartmentalisation is crucial, as it grants precious time for evacuation and firefighting efforts.
Enhanced Fire Containment:
Not only do fire-rated doors slow down the spread of fires, but they also enhance fire containment. By keeping the fire within a designated area, these doors make it easier for firefighters to access and extinguish the blaze, reducing the potential for widespread damage.
Perhaps the most significant impact of fire-rated doors is their potential to save lives. In the event of a fire, every second counts. These doors provide vital extra minutes for occupants to escape to safety. By effectively compartmentalising and containing fires, fire-rated doors create safer evacuation routes, reducing the risk of injury or loss of life.
Fire-rated doors aren't just about fire protection but also contribute to building security. These doors are constructed to withstand not only flames but also external threats. Their durability and resistance to forced entry enhance the overall security of your property.
Versatility in Application:
Many of our fire doors are crafted to withstand fires and external threats such as firearms and explosives. Additionally, their hygienic properties make them ideal for sterile environments, ensuring that safety is never compromised in critical spaces.

FIRE DOOR FAQs
For more information, find the answer to your queries here in our most frequently asked questions for fire doors in London and nationwide. Alternatively, you can get in touch with our friendly team for further help in answering your queries.
Q: What are the latest Fire Door Regulations?
The Fire door regulations are laid out in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The requirements were amended by the Fire Safety Act 2021, which extended the requirements for buildings over 2 storeys.
Q: What is the difference between a fire and normal doors?
A fire door is used to put in place compartmentation in the event of a fire, which puts physical barriers in strategic areas of a building to prevent fire spread. Not all doors can do this, as fire doors are specially designed for this task. Manufactured from a combination of glass, gypsum, steel, timber and aluminium, fire doors are designed to be kept closed at all times, with any gaps filled with fire-resistant sealants.
Q: Should I have fire doors in my residential building?
Any home or residential building with three floors or more must have fire-rated doors fitted to every habitable door leading from a stairwell. This also applies to loft conversions where an extra floor has been added to a two-storey property. As well as this, any door leading from the building to an integral garage must also have a fire door in place.
Q: Can fire doors have windows?
Fire doors can have windows; however, the window must have a fire rating glazing. Options for fire-rated windows are usually; wire mesh glass, liquid sodium silicate, ceramic glass or borosilicate glass. Typically, wire mesh glass is one of the better-suited options for withstanding fires.
Q: Where are fire doors required UK?
In the UK, fire doors are required in all domestic dwellings above two levels. All doors leading to a stairwell must be a fire doors. Doors leading to habitable rooms and between habitable areas (such as individual flats) and communal areas (such as hallways) must also be fire doors. Fire doors are also required in loft conversions, between a house and an integral garage, and between residential and business elements in a mixed-use building.
Firedoors are used for compartmentation, preventing the spread of the fire and leaving fire escapes accessible. Therefore, in commercial properties, fire doors are typically required in all doorways leading to escape routes and rooms with a higher risk of a fire starting. Consult your fire risk assessment for the specifics of your building.
Our guide to which fire door is right for you might help you discover which type should be in your building.
Q: Can you paint fire doors?
You can paint fire doors, but it must be done in a way which maintains the door's fire resistance. The paint cannot be layered too thick in a way that would prevent the door from closing correctly. You should also avoid gloss paint as it can be thicker than ordinary wood paint and can affect how the door sits within the frame. For added protection, you can use fire-resistant paint. When painting a fire door, cover hardware with masking tape to avoid getting paint on latches or hinges and avoid painting over smoke seals.
Q: Is it ok to wedge open a fire door?
No. You should never wedge a fire door open. A fire door must be shut to offer protection. Wedging a fire door open prevents it from functioning as intended allowing fire to more easily spread. Wedging a fire door open can put lives at risk.
Q: Are fire doors a legal requirement in flats?
Yes, fire doors are required in flats. Fire doors are required in buildings over two storeys. Habitable rooms in flats should have fire doors. The front door of each flat and doors leading to stairwells should also be a fire door.
Q: How long does a fire door last?
Our Certified approved fire doors offer up to 1 hour of protection, and we offer solutions with even longer protection if required. Our Powershield Certified approved steel doors offer up to 4 hours of fire protection during a fire. You should have your fire doors checked regularly to ensure they provide the best level of protection possible in the event of a fire.
