where are fire doors required ?
When you run a commercial or industrial establishment, you need to take fire safety very seriously. If you don’t have an efficient fire safety system in place, you risk the lives and health of your employees and business associates.Fire doors stop the spread of fire and smoke from one area to another. They can act as obstacles and give you more time to escape the property because they will delay the progress of fire; you still need to exit the property and get as far away from it as you can. Fire doors can slow down, but can’t entirely stop the progress of the fire. Sometimes the isolation is enough for fire personnel to extinguish the flames, but you shouldn’t take the chance.
Fire rated steel doors play a vital role in keeping people and property safe and minimizing property damage during a fire. Fire rated doors are required to be self closing and positive latching. Frame and Hardware must also carry the appropriate fire label.whether you are looking for custom commercial steel doors, bullet proof doors, fire rated doors, STC doors, or a variety of types of hollow metal doors, stainless steel doors, hollow metal door frames or steel door frames for your facility, please call us .
Fire/Smoke doors be perfectly functional at all times. They should open and close well and have a tight seal that won’t allow flames or smoke to pass. If the door doesn’t form a good seal or doesn’t open or close well, you need to call in a repair contractor to address the problem immediately. If you defer getting the door repaired, the inspector will notice it during the fire safety check, and that would be a black mark against you.
