What are Sliding Fire Door Kits?
Sliding fire pocket door kits (fd30/fd60) are used to protect a property from fire damage. Sliding doors work extremely well in environments where there may not be enough space for a regular fire door. This includes rooms such as kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. These doors use a pocket door system with the latest sliding door technology to allow for exceptionally easy installation.
