How do you Install Fire Doors Correctly?
We highly recommend entrusting certified fire door installers with the installation and maintenance of your fire door sets. Inadequate installation can result in non-compliant fire-resistant doors that may not function properly during emergencies.
Always follow the fire door manufacturer’s instructions or installation guide during the installation process and for the door leaves’ maintenance. These instructions will also outline when and how to maintain the door.
Utilise the appropriate safety signage by referencing the escape route signage code of practice, BS 5499-4:2013. A competent individual must verify the door’s certification label, which displays the fire rating (e.g., FD60), fire certificate number, and manufacturer’s name.
Fire door ironmongery, including hinges, latches, and door closers, must bear CE marks and comply with UK regulations. These components must be securely fixed and correctly specified to adhere to the fire door leaf certification label.
Adhering to relevant fire door regulations ensures compliance. The fire door frame must have the same FD rating as the door. Intumescent and cold smoke seals must be checked and specified correctly to guarantee compatibility between the door frame and doors (fire door sets).
Fire-resistant glazing must carry a CE mark, conforming to European standards. Upon installation, the gap between the frame and the fire door should measure between 2mm and 4mm, with 3mm being the ideal target for fire door installers.
After installation, test the fire door closer to ensure that it effectively closes the door against the seal and operates the latch when closed.
We are certified to ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety, ISO 9001 Quality management System, and ISO 14001 environmental management system. You can be assured that our fire door installation processes are robust, tested, cost effective, and environmentally sound.
We work with a number of leading fire door manufacturers and suppliers to provide a wide range of doors, including FD30 (designed to protect from fire and smoke for 30 mins) and FD60 (60 minutes). Our specialists will ensure that the correct doors are specified to ensure compliance as well as ensuring the design of the door is in keeping with your current aesthetics.
All our fire resistant door products are designed, tested and certified to the correct standard to ensue that they meet their specific fire resistance requirements.

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.
