Fire Door FAQs

  • What are the current Fire Door Regulations?

    The key regulations covering fire door installation and maintenance are outlined in the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which applies to most commercial properties. Requirements were extended by the Fire Safety Act 2021 mandating additional internal fire doors for buildings over 2 storeys.

  • How do fire doors differ from standard doors?

    Fire doors are constructed with fire-resistant materials and components to create barriers that prevent the spread of fire and smoke. When closed, they block openings in walls and ceilings to contain fires for a specified time period. Standard doors do not offer such fire-resistant properties. Fire doors must meet legal standards for material integrity, gaps around edges, self-closing mechanisms and fire certification ratings indicating how long they can withstand fire. They require special installation and routine inspection to maintain their certification.

  • Do my existing doors comply with regulations?

    We can complete an assessment of your current fire doors to determine if they meet the latest certification standards and fire safety regulations. Many older doors may need to be replaced to be compliant.

  • What fire rating do I need? 30, 60 or 90 minutes?

    Most commercial and multi-occupancy buildings require FD30 (30 minutes) or FD60 (60 minutes) certified fire doors. We’ll advise you on the rating you need based on your property type, occupancy levels and building codes.

  • Will fire doors alter the look of my building?

    Not at all. We offer a wide selection of styles that match most interiors – including classic hardwood and contemporary glass models. Most people don’t even realise they’ve installed fire-rated doors.

  • How quickly can you install my new fire doors?

    Once ordered, we can usually install certified fire door sets within 2-3 weeks. We may be able to expedite for urgent situations.

  • Do you offer maintenance contracts?

    Yes. Once your doors are installed, we recommend ongoing 6 or 12-month maintenance checks to ensure seals, closures and fire-rated elements continue to perform as required. Our service plans are very reasonable.
