Fire Doors form part of passive fire protection of buildings. Services throughout Milton Keynes, Bedford and the surrounding areas.
Fire doors are vital for helping to prevent the spread of fire and smoke by compartmentalising sections of escape routes throughout a building. This effectively offers protection of the escape routes from fire in adjacent rooms and other areas of the building.
Fire doors are specified to provide smoke and fire resistance ratings as FD30 for 30 minutes and FD60 for 60 minutes.
Doors specified ratings of FD30S and FD60S are fitted with smoke seals.
In most situations 30 minutes should be enough time for safe evacuation but your fire risk assessment should identify which level of fire resistance your fire doors require.
In Specific high-risk environments, there may be a need for a level of protection to exceed 60 minutes. Steel doors are normally specified in this instance.
With services in Milton Keynes, Bedford and beyond, TEC Fire & Security can carry out site inspections of your fire doors and provide a report of any corrective actions that are required. The following is a brief overview of a typical site inspection but is not limited to the checks listed below.
