ABOUT FIRE DOORS
Fire doors are designed to hold back the spread of fire, giving time for the occupants of the building to escape and for fire services to arrive. The minimum standard for fire doors is a half-hour rating. Such doors are about 44mm thick, with 10-15mm wide intumescent seals around the edge of the door frame. These expand with heat, providing a tight seal. Doors with one hour fire rating a likely to be about 54mm thick, with at least 20mm width of intumescent seal. Fire doors should be self closing, and should not be held open except with magnetic catches which release in the event of fire.
