Fire doors are used to restrict or delay the spread of fire. When it comes to protecting your residential premise or working space and its occupants from the dangers of a fire, you simply cannot rely on normal wooden doors. Normal doors are typically made of wood, plastic or other light materials and are not able to withstand the extreme temperatures in a fire emergency.
Fire doors are made of special materials that can withstand the extreme temperatures during a fire emergency. They are made of fire-resistant materials like timber, glass, steel, gypsum and vermiculite boards. The main purpose of using fire doors in a building or home is to restrict and delay the spread of fire, smoke, and fumes from one part of the building to other parts.
While selecting a fire door with the best ratings is important, you have to ensure it is properly installed. A fire door is only effective if it is professionally installed. Each fire door comes with a different set of specifications as far as material, size, shape and parts of the door are concerned. There are so many things that you need to keep in mind while installing a fire door.
