The Best Bournemouth Fire Door Fitters

As fire door fitters in Bournemouth, we know that using the correct fire doors plays a vital part of a building’s fire safety, and the correct door, fitted professionally can buy vital time when escaping a fire in the event of an evacuation. The most common classifications of fire doors are FD30 and FD60, which provide up to 30 minutes and 60 minutes of fire protection respectively. FD90 and FD120 are available as well but are rarely used. As fire door fitters in Bournemouth, our door ratings come with fire door sets as a cohesive whole, not just the door itself. If a fire door is fitted to a door frame that isn’t designed for fire resistance, the entire integrity of the seal is compromised.
The frames and doors together are certified as fire door sets and specification for each set is either with the door or available online under the corresponding door code. For escape roots in buildings, FD30 grade doors are the most common, with FD60 and above being used for protection of critical areas. Fire door fitters Bournemouth will recommend higher rated doors for areas such as; data protection, documentation storage etc. A lot of the doors are constructed to have a wooden finish but contain a mineral core which significantly boosts integrity under intense heat.
