5 Reasons To Install A Fire Door

The reasons to install a fire door go well beyond legal and safety requirements. Here’s why fire doors are worth introducing to your building.

To keep occupants safe

Beginning with the obvious, fire doors save lives. The thought of being trapped inside a burning building is frightful, and anything that can be done to prevent such an occurrence should be undertaken.

The most effective measure that can be taken to prevent this occurrence is a fire door. Fire doors prevent fires and smoke from spreading rapidly, giving occupants ample time to escape the hazard. All functioning fire protection models require at least one fire door to be effective.

To comply with legal standards

Fire Doors aren’t only a moral exercise. They’re a legal one, too.

The components and measurements of all our fire doors are tested to meet relevant building codes to ensure building inspections don’t result in any hefty penalties. Framing, thickness, configuration, size, material and more all come together to make your door a legally sound aspect of your fire protection plan. For example, appropriate fire door signage is just one of the Building Codes met to ensure an installation is ready for use.

To soundproof

Did you know that fire doors can be designed to be soundproof? If you let us know, we can install a fire door tailored to your acoustic requirements. So, instead of spending all your money on acoustic panelling and soundproofing materials, why not install a fire door and kill two birds with one stone?

Acoustic seals installed on fire doors won’t just prevent noise spread and fires. They also limit air draft, so you could end up saving money on your air conditioning bill too!

To preserve your building

A fire door doesn’t just protect people. It protects the building itself. A fire spread throughout your building will cause significantly less damage if fire doors are installed in the right places, saving you from costly building repairs. For example, if you install a fire door in between two hallways, you may only have to rebuild one section of your building instead of all of it.

Preserving your building is well worth the investment, particularly if your building has heritage and has been designed to last a long time. Many older design materials cannot be easily replaced, so protecting these features should be a clear priority.

To improve your fire protection plan

A fire protection plan involves a set of instructions for building occupants to follow in the case of a fire. A solid plan should include smoke and fire alarms, fire extinguishers or hoses on all floors, a clear map outlining evacuation routes, and regular practices of the planned procedure. Still, even if your occupants understand how to operate said equipment and escape the premises efficiently, your chances of survival are significantly limited without installing a fire door.

Think of installing a fire door as the keystone to your fire protection plan. Without it, fire will spread throughout the building much quicker, making the event of an evacuation less than optimal.
