How to Install Fire Doors Correctly

We strongly recommend that you only allow certified fire door installers to work on your fire door sets. Get this wrong and the installed fire resistant  doors may not comply with statutory regulations and may not function correctly as designed in an emergency situation.

The fire door manufacturer’s instructions or installation guide should be followed during the installation process and for maintenance of the door leaves. The instructions will also identify when and how to maintain the door.

The correct safety signage should be used, the code of practice for escape route signage should be referenced  BS 5499-4:2013. The door must be checked for the certification label. The label will show the fire rating of the door such as FD60. It will also have a fire certificate number and the name of the manufacturer.

Fire door ironmongery must have CE marks and must be compatible to comply with UK regulations. Ironmongery consists of hinges, latches and door closers. They must all be securely fixed and of the right specification to comply with the fire door leaf certification label.

The relevant fire door regulations must be adhered to, this will help ensure compliance. The fire door frame must have the same FD rating as the door. Intumescent seals and cold smoke seals must be checked and specified correctly to ensure compatibility between the door frame and the doors (fire door sets).

Fire resisting glazing must have a CE mark to show conformity with European standards. The gap between the frame and the fire door must be between 2mm and 4mm when installed, 3mm is the target for fire door installers.

Once installed, the fire door closer should be tested to make sure that it effectively closes the door against the seal and that it operates the latch when closed.

The Importance of Fire Door Inspections & Maintenance

Fire doors play a vital role in an emergency by ensuring that when the door is closed, a tight seal is formed between the door and the frame to prevent the spread of fire and smoke.

The two main types of fire resistant door, the FD30 fire door and the FD60 fire door are designed to survive fire for either 30 minutes (FD30) or 60 minutes (FD60). However, doors that are not correctly maintained could result in a failure that may put lives and property at risk.

For fire safe doors to work as intended as part of a fire strategy they must be of serviceable condition to protect lives and property in the event of a fire. Fire door maintenance can also save cost on replacement fire doors because small repairs can be undertaken at regular intervals.
