Fire Door Hinges
Remember the importance of fire doors
Sadly people often forget the major significance of fire doors to a building. It should always be remembered that fire doors have two main roles; one is to protect property and the other is to save lives by protecting people from smoke inhalation. A correctly specified, installed and maintained fire door with all the appropriate and essential ironmongery fitted to it will be able to serve both these functions. When a fire door is closed it can stop fire and smoke spreading, provide a safe and protected escape route while people evacuate the building and provide some protection for fire-fighters entering the building to fight the blaze. Fire doors must be installed to replicate their tested condition, and if any changes are made to them in any way, these are likely to negatively affect their fire performance, and nullify any third party certification or CE mark.
