We create both fire doors and fire exit doors for commerical and domestic premises.
Fire doors are usually sited within a property, designed to block fire and smoke between rooms ro separate areas of a building. They provide a safe route to enable people to evacuate a building when fire occurs.
They need to be certified, which means that they are resistant to fire and smoke when closed for a specific amount of time (their FD rating)
Certified fire doors will be resistant to fire and smoke when closed, for a minimum specified length of time specified by their FD rating. They usually come with a rating of FD30 or FD60 which indicates the minutes which they are able to withstand fire and smoke.
Fire Exit Doors
These are usually situated at fire exits and are fitted to enable easy escape from a building in the event of a fire. They are fitted with push bars or a panic button on the inside, and usually from the outside using an access card. They can be made of a number of different materials including steel, steel composites, timber and even uPVC. Because their role is to enable exit to the outside, they do not have to be fire rated.

They are ideal for window displays and for shops who rely on window displays to draw customers in to buy.
