Fire Doors Congleton – FAQs
There is no set definite time on how long fire doors last as this largely depends on how well your fire doors are kept in great condition. Of course, this is impacted by regular servicing and inspection, at least every six months. Fire doors should comply with the latest fire regulations at all times and if they don’t, they should either be repaired (if possible) or replaced for maximum fire safety.
This is a great question that we always make our customers well aware of. Fire doors are available in thickness of either 44m (these doors last for 30-minutes in the event of a fire) or 54mm (these doors last for 60-minutes in the event of a fire breakout). For more information regarding the technicalities of fire door thickness, please get in touch today.
The type and quantity of fire doors that you’ll need for your premises will be largely dependent on a fire risk assessment that will be carried out at your premises by an accredited fire risk assessor. The fire risk assessment will determine the type and quantity of fire door(s) you require to ensure maximum fire safety.
Yes, intumescent strips will be required for your fire doors to ensure fire rating. They are required on all fire doors installed and play an integral part in preventing fire outbreaks.
Yes, in many cases, fire doors are required to be self-closing as part of fire safety regulations and building codes. The self-closing mechanism is an important feature for a number of reasons. The self-closing feature ensures that fire doors are in the closed position and can effectively fulfil their role in containing fire and smoke.
Here at JST Construction, we provide dedicated fire door inspection and fire door servicing. Visual inspections consist of a comprehensive assessment of your fire door(s) and all individual components. Regular, scheduled inspections are essential to maintaining the integrity of fire doors.
Yes, it’s true that fire doors can have windows and vision panels. However, the windows or panels must be specifically designed to maintain the fire resistance of the door. This to ensure you are meeting the latest fire safety standards and regulations.
Annual inspections are paramount to ensure you remain compliant with the latest legislations AND prolong the lifespan of your fire door. Depending on the type and size of your premises, alongside other factors, you may require inspection or servicing on a more frequent basis. JST Construction will be able to guide you here.
Whether fire doors are required in every room of a building depends on various factors, including local building codes, the type of occupancy, and the specific use of each room.
