Fire Doors

Learn about fire doors and the standards you need to make sure a property you own or manage meets.

Fire doors are a really important element of your fire safety strategy. Used correctly, they reduce fire from spreading through a building, giving people time to escape and the Brigade time to attend and potentially save your premises.

Getting the right fire doors in place is an important responsibility, though you will also need to consider fire detection and sprinklers.

Why do you need to provide fire doors?

  • They are specifically designed to withstand fire for up to 30 minutes.
  • They are a legal requirement for flats which open onto communal areas shared with other tenants. This is to make sure crucial escape routes are protected if a fire breaks out.
  • Some are designed to automatically close behind you in the event of fire, holding flames back and stopping the spread of the fire and toxic smoke into escape routes, corridors and other flats in the block.
