What is a fire rated door?

Fire rated doors, sometimes referred to as fire-resistant doors are constructed in a way so as to slow down, or prevent, the spread of fire and smoke. Often made from gypsum or metal, they are heavy and when installed properly, should not combust during a certain time frame in an average fire. Time ratings do vary, but in general, standard ratings should include 20 to 90-minute doors.

More common in commercial buildings than in residences, they are often seen in public buildings, office buildings and rooms such as dormitories.

How can fire rated door help during a fire?

While not completely fireproof, fire rated doors can significantly slow or even prevent the spread of fire and smoke; resisting heat and flame penetration enough to slow a fire for a specified time period. By containing both fire and smoke, individuals inside are afforded more time to safely exit the building. The importance of reducing smoke inhalation is often overlooked or underestimated, however, most people who lose their lives in residential fires do so due to excessive smoke inhalation. The installation of a fire rated door also helps to protect the building and any personal assets, while firefighters work to put the fire out as quickly as they can.

Do you need fire rated doors?

The simple answer to this question is, yes, if you value your property - whether residential or commercial –you do need fire rated doors, but we should talk about it in a little more detail.

Let’s face it, fire is a very real threat to any business, and reducing the risk of a fire spreading throughout a commercial building is always going to be a priority. Not only that, but some building regulations stipulate that fire rated doors are required for key areas in both residential and commercial buildings, and if you’re found not to be in compliance with these, then you could face big penalties or even closure.

A professionally installed fire rated door is not the same as other types of commercial doors, and can reduce or halt the spread of fire through your property; protecting your assets, employees, business and livelihood. There is also a chance that smoke and toxic gases may be released in the event of a fire, and these can quickly spread throughout a building and cause pervasive, irreparable damage to both goods and people. Aside from the obvious advantages when it comes to offering fire protection, fire rated doors also provide you with an enhanced level of security, as they are built to be much tougher and more durable than other commercial doors.

In short, if you have a business that you want to protect, you should consider installing fire rated doors for the higher level of fire and security protection they offer.
