Front doors for flats

Fire doors are a crucial aspect of reducing the rate at which fire can pass between each area within flats. Reducing the spread of a fire is essential in allowing occupants to safley be able to evacuate the premises. Did you know that building regulations state that flat entrance doors are required to provide 30 minutes of fire resistance? In this blog we will discusss which Fire door suits your next project.

Our SecureFIT and SecureSET flat entrance doorsets have been specifically designed to provide customers with a safe, secure and stylish solution to for flat entrances.

Fire Door Building Regulations

To meet building regulations, fire doors must be part of a doorset that includes certified fire-resistant components such as the door frame, hinges, ironmongery, signage, and closers, all of which must be rated at the same level as the door itself. The door must also be equipped with intumescent strips, which seal the door and block the passage of fire and smoke. In addition, fire doors must have the ability to automatically close and can only be held open with a certified retainer that will activate in the event of a fire. Fire doors in flats are typically rated as FD30 or FD60, indicating 30 or 60 minutes of fire resistance.
